The design style of The Ritz-Carlton, Washington D.C. is traditional with modern touches throughout. The lobby, for instance, features dark wood paneling and marble flooring with green and gold accents. Throughout the other public areas in the D.C. hotel there are original works of art in grand gilded frames. A large brass and crystal chandelier and the stately marble front desk are two unmistakable focal points in the lobby. The guest rooms have many of the same classic elements (see: marble bathrooms with deep-soaking tubs and dark furniture) but with modern accents such as geometrically patterned upholstery and a host of straight lines.
