Welcome to The Walper Hotel

Nestled  in the Historic Downtown of Kitchener

Immerse yourself in the historic charm of The Walper Hotel, an iconic 1893 landmark set along the quaint streets of one of Kitchener, Ontario’s oldest neighbourhoods.

You’ll be captivated by this building’s amazing past.  From Eleanor Roosevelt’s preferred breakfast location on the interior terrace to Lennox Lewis’ boxing match in the Crystal Ballroom, to the tales of Al Capone’s liquor smuggling operation in the cavernous basement restaurant, every nook and cranny in this hotel has a story to tell.

And now, we’d like you to be our next guest.

Our accommodations blend classic Victorian décor with modern touches. Flat-screen TVs and original wall art mesh perfectly with the quaint, antique furnishings. Every room has its own unique characteristics, which allows our staff to match each guest with accommodations that are just right for them.

A barber shop and tobacconist, which both date back to the turn of the century, and free wireless Internet access are among the added perks of staying with us. We also offer six remarkable meeting rooms, totaling 8,000 square feet of space that are ideal for weddings corporate meetings or other events.

Step outside The Walper Hotel and you’ll be a short stroll away from the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, Centre in the Square and a host of restaurants and bars downtown.

Book a room at the Walper Hotel today and experience the perfect blend of historic style and modern comfort.
