A rooms renovation has been completed at the Mandarin Oriental, Washington, D.C. The new look was created by Kent Interior Design, using earth tones and touches of robin's-egg blue to complement the dark wood furnishings. The minibar in a custom Asian-inspired cabinet features treats from Dean & Deluca. A round mahogany table with Internet wires, a phone, and an international plug and power outlet has replaced the traditional desk. Through the hotel's new Table of Contents program, guests can request laptop stands and accessories to convert the table into a standing desk. All the bathrooms also have been redone.

"We are delighted to introduce our newly refreshed rooms, which will offer guests a relaxed and elegant home away from home," said general manager Adriaan Radder. "Our guests are well-traveled, sophisticated and passionate about design, and that is why they choose to stay with Mandarin Oriental. The restyled guestrooms will provide them with a seamless luxury experience complemented by delightful amenities that offer productive comfort."

The property, which looks out on the tidal basin and several monuments, features more than 38,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 4,000-square-foot event lawn. The restaurant, Muze, features American fare with Asian touches; the Empress Lounge offers light fare, cocktails and tea. The Spa at Mandarin Oriental has eight treatment rooms.
