A new hotel from Concord Hospitality Enterprises is getting ready to open its doors in Calgary in the summer of 2022, aiming to offer guests a luxury experience that blends modern comfort with British whimsy and local flavour.
Inspired by Oscar Wilde’s classic novel “The Picture of Dorian Gray”, The Dorian, Autograph Collection features a boutique-style interior design along with 137 uniquely themed guest rooms that The Dorian says are poised to give guests an authentic and memorable experience.
“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,” said David Keam, general manager, The Dorian, Autograph Collection and Courtyard Calgary Downtown, Concord Hospitality. “We are looking forward to welcoming guests from near and far, providing them with an unforgettable experience and top-tier culinary offerings.”
The culinary program will be led by celebrated chef Kevin D. Birch, who will oversee three forthcoming dining experiences: Prologue, Bistro Novelle, and The Wilde—the latter of which is expected to be a fine dining restaurant on the hotel’s 27th floor that will feature organic, sustainable, and local ingredients. The hotel, which is divided into two parts, will also feature a rooftop patio and a lower courtyard that will aim to cater to “sophisticated urban adventures and business professionals seeking more for their travel dollars.”
“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,” said chef 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.”
Reservations to The Dorian, Autograph Collection can now be made online.
