Guest reviews

My stay at The Dorian was truly exceptional during my business trip. The captivating art decor, reminiscent of Dorian Gray, and meticulous room decoration created a delightful ambiance. Both my breakfast and dinner experiences were gastronomic delights, showcasing top-notch culinary expertise. However, the true gem lies in the remarkable staff – consistently friendly and attentive to every detail. Without a doubt, The Dorian has become my favorite place to stay, and I look forward to bringing my family next time. Thank you all!

From the front desk check-in with Christopher to our server Meghan "The Wilde on 27" the service at The Dorian, Autograph Collection was extraordinary! The attention to detail does not stop with the staff as the the theme of Dorian Gray runs throughout, right down to the peacock feather on the bed. :) Our suite was amazing and the entire hotel decor was just so much fun!!! I could write so much more but would just like to say that this hotel deserves at least one visit... I am confident it will not be your last!

I stayed at The Dorian Hotel with my Mom for a girls night staycation. The room was absolutely beautiful with whimsical & stylish decor, and so many well thought out details with the Oscar Wilde theme. There was a variety of quality curated snacks & drinks in the room, robes, slippers, and Aesop body care products in the bathroom. The staff were extremely friendly from check-in to check-out. We can’t wait to stay again. Thanks for making our Mother Daughter weekend so special.

Amazing experience. The staff are all so incredibly lovely and very friendly. They go above and beyond to be helpful and kind upon check-in and check-out! Especially Andrew, he was amazing during my check-in! The decor is fun and unique providing a lot to look at! I highly recommend this hotel if you're looking within the downtown core of Calgary! Everywhere downtown is within walking distance of this location so you won't miss out!
