Death Valley’s Luxury Resort

I was curious to visit Death Valley during the government shut-down. Would all the sites be closed? I knew The Oasis at Death Valley was open and recently completed $100 million in renovations. Both The Inn and The Ranch at Death Valley are celebrating a renaissance in 2019.
