Think back to your favourite travel experience. Often the most memorable home away from home leaves you feeling like a local, while transporting you to a different world.
The Dorian hotel is the first project of the Calgary Rising initiative. Calgary Rising is inviting capital partners to invest in Calgary infrastructure projects, to continue building the city and social good.
“We know that Calgary is an amazing place to live and work; we are building a unique reflection of a modern vibrant international destination and delivering the very best that Calgary has to offer to international travellers and locals alike,” said Patricia Phillips, CEO of PBA Land and Development.
“The Dorian will be a true reflection of the city it will soon call home; this development supports the economy, invites local businesses to play a big role in our mutual growth and enhances community development through the arts.”
Committed to integrating local suppliers into its business model, everything from the menus to the in-room amenities will showcase the best of what Calgary has to offer.
The Dorian is also focused on enhancing arts development. Different artwork by local artists, photographers, sculptors and musicians will be featured on a rotating basis throughout the hotel.
“We are home to a large population of youthful, aspiring, global citizens who want to experience the best the world has to offer right here at home, said Mary Moran, President and CEO, Calgary Economic Development. “We are a city that is ready and able to have a bigger footprint on the international stage - The Dorian is helping us move even further in both directions.”
The Dorian is scheduled to open in fall of 2020 and will feature 120 upscale Autograph Collection rooms, as well as 180 Courtyard by Marriott rooms. A welcome addition to the downtown skyline and joining other luxury hotels like the Fairmont Palliser, Hotel Arts and Le Germain, The Dorian is prepared to welcome business and leisure travellers looking for the best of experiential travel.
