Best Luxury Hotels In Calgary

This high-rise prairie city in Alberta has a heritage in farming and rodeos (earning its nickname “cowtown”), as well as a more recent reputation for oil production, ensuring its wealth. Visit in July for the mildest temperatures and minimal rainfall, or during the winter months when subzero conditions and its Canada Olympic Park create skiing opportunities. Climb to the top of the city’s tower for the best views, head to one of the many parks for green spaces, see the animals at the zoo, and visit Fish Creek for a spot of seasonal wild swimming or hiking.

The Dorian, Autograph Collection

Oscar Wilde and his works served as the inspiration for this whimsical downtown hotel that displays a playful and theatrical personality. Expect chintzy wallpapers, brass finishings and portraits of the playwright, evoking a sense of 19th-century British sensibilities, but balanced by sleek contemporary furnishings; each has its own in-room drinks trolley, Turkish linens and a 55” 4K TV. The Wilde on 27 restaurant and bar pays homage to the property’s muse, and is located on the 27th floor offering superb views across the skyline. Guests can also dine onsite at Prologue and Bistro Novelle.
