Stanley Kubrick is reported to have based The Shining's red bathroom on the men's room of the Biltmore Hotel in Arizona. The design of the Biltmore is usually attributed to Frank Lloyd Wright, which is only partly true. The architect of record is Albert Chase McArthur who had been commissioned by his brothers to design a luxury hotel for them in Phoenix. McArthur studied under Wright, who had built the McArthur house in Chicago for McArthur's father in 1892, and Wright was the consulting architect for the Biltmore.
