Historic Hotels of America is pleased to announce its partnership with Xanterra Parks & Resorts, welcoming eight new members located in five National Parks. The new additions to the prestigious membership include: The Inn at Furnace Creek in Death Valley National Park, California, built in 1927 for the Death Valley Railroad and featuring the world's “lowest golf course,” at 214 feet below sea level; three new hotels located at Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona: Bright Angel Lodge and Cabins, El Tovar Hotel, and Phantom Ranch; two new members located in Yellowstone National Park: Old Faithful Inn, and Lake Yellowstone Hotel; Zion Lodge in Zion National Park, Springdale, Utah, built in the 1920s by the Union Pacific Railroad; and Crater Lake Lodge in Crater Lake National Park, Oregon, built in 1915 and one of the few "in park" lodgings, complete with 71 rooms and rustic charm. "These properties are so much more than overnight accommodations as they provide special and unique experiences," said Andrew N. Tood, president and CEO of Xanterra Parks & Resorts. "They are part of our social fabric, they were around during our grandparents' time, and they will be creating lifelong memories for our grandchildren and beyond."
