CALGARY — The Dorian, Autograph Collection (The Dorian), Calgary’s only premium, lifestyle hotel, is now accepting accommodation and event reservations as of fall 2022. The hotel is set to open its doors in summer 2022.
The Dorian’s boutique-inspired design and 137 uniquely themed guestrooms are designed with the essence of Oscar Wilde’s infamous novel, “The Picture of Dorian Gray,” blending modern comfort with British whimsy and local flavour and providing guests with a memorable, warm, and fun stay.
“The Dorian’s heartfelt design and local flair will have it quickly become the favourite destination for business and leisure travellers, as well as those looking for that perfect venue for their special event,” says David Keam, general manager, The Dorian, Autograph Collection and Courtyard Calgary Downtown, Concord Hospitality.
The Dorian appeals to individuals seeking a unique and exclusive venue for weddings and social events and comes complete with a personal service offering. Guests can choose from a variety of spaces, accommodating anywhere from 10 to 335 guests.
The Dorian is also excited to announce the appointment of its executive chef, Kevin D. Birch, who will be overseeing the hotels’ three tempting dining experiences. Chef Birch is an accomplished chef, a successful entrepreneur, and has been a culinary instructor at Canada’s top hospitality school, SAIT. He’s led teams of more than 200 culinary professionals and has worked in two of Canada’s top 100 restaurants. He will be overseeing all three culinary offerings at The Dorian: Prologue, Bistro Novelle and The Wilde, a fine-dining restaurant located on the hotel’s 27th floor that will feature organic, sustainable, and local ingredients.
“I am looking forward to taking the culinary offerings at The Dorian to an elevated level and adding a variety of options to Calgary’s burgeoning food scene,” says Birch. “We want to provide our guests and diners alike with a special and distinctive dining experience, whether they are craving upscale fare or a casual breakfast or lunch with friends.”
