San Francisco's Ritz-Carlton Donates to Clean the World
In renovating the interior of this landmark hotel, designers drew inspiration from both the San Francisco Bay and couture fashion. The rooms’ color schemes take cues from the steely blue and grays of the city’s fog, and the furnishings, including tweed fabric chairs, are a nod to men’s tailoring. While the hotel’s look has changed, its commitment to charities hasn’t wavered. The staff donates unclaimed clothing from the lost and found to the Salvation Army, and every year sends 2,000 pounds of leftover soap to Clean the World, which recycles and distributes it to disadvantaged people around the world to prevent hygiene-related illnesses. From $399.
