The new Marriott Bethesda Downtown in Bethesda, Maryland, is a 12-story, 245-room hotel that is on the Red Line Metro Stop, a short walk from Bethesda Row and steps away from Marriott Intl’s new headquarters. Rottet Studio in partnership with Marriott’s in-house design team, created a modern design concept for the entrance of the property and its interiors by drawing inspiration from local scenery with motifs like stone and tiles reminiscent of Bethesda bluestone quarries. A grand staircase serves as the central focal point of the property’s enclosed lobby, while floor-to-ceiling windows are utilized throughout the property providing both cityscape and organic views. The hotel’s 8,000 square feet dynamic event space is flooded with natural light-illuminating, and abstract details like cherry blossom light fixtures and Couristan Axminster carpets designed in watercolors to capture the region’s notable natural characteristics. Over 6,000 square yards of carpeting was used to furbish the Pre-Function, Meetings Rooms, Service Corridor, Grand Ballroom, Transition areas and Staircase of this full-service Marriott property.
