Can anyone tell me if it is ok to use hardwood floor that is close in color are type to existing wood that is down? Will it be very obvious? Thanks.

Get a few sample pieces of the new wood. Lay it on the floor. Look at it for a few days and nights in different kinds of light. If you like it, buy some and install it. If you don't like it, look for other wood.
What matters is whether it's obvious to you. The only guests who will notice are people in the business (or people you tell), and they'll notice no matter what you do.

Sometimes laying the new flooring is done at a different angle, maybe 45 degrees, maybe 90 degrees. When it looks intentional the effect then seems part of the room design. Lay out some new pieces taht way to see how you like that arrangement. HTH
