The Dorian Calgary Boutique Hotel Now Open

Newly opened in downtown Calgary, Alberta, The Dorian is a premier boutique hotel with a touch of British charm, inspired by celebrated author, Oscar Wilde.

The Dorian is two hotels in one beautiful tower.

The upper-portion, Autograph, blends modern luxury with whimsy and local flavor.

The lower portion, Courtyard, caters to sophisticated urban adventurers and business professionals seeking more for their travel dollars.

Nods to the hotel’s muse can be found in each Autograph Collection room, where guests will find a copy of The Picture of Dorian Gray, as well as Earl Grey Gin in their room bar carts.

The Earl Grey Gin is a local collaboration with award-winning and farm-certified distiller, Eau Claire Distillery.

Unique libations have also been created for guests to taste at the hotel’s restaurants.

The Duchess of Monmouth cocktail, for example, uses the navy strength gin with elderflower, Campari, lemon juice and fresh egg whites.

Other unique touches found in The Dorian rooms include dog beds and dog robes, so that four-legged friends can be just as comfortable as their owners.

The design of the intricately patterned wallpaper and upholstery was custom created just for The Dorian, while the houndstooth carpet and curtains pay homage to British fashion.

The turn-down service where guests can digitally share and interact with one another is a particularly exciting feature, and is The Dorian’s MARK of Craft – something each Autograph Collection hotel incorporates that is rooted in their personality, and no two marks are the same.

Among the hotel’s three dining offerings is a 27th floor restaurant, lounge and patio called The Wilde, which boasts stunning city views.

Executive chef Joshua Dyer is passionate about bringing the very best local ingredients together to create dishes that, while informed by the great culinary traditions, are also uniquely Western Canadian.

What is also uniquely Western Canadian is the hotel’s art, of which the majority of the commissioned pieces were created by Albertan artists.
