Immerse yourself in the historic charm of The Walper Hotel. This iconic 1893 landmark is the epicentre of one of Kitchener, Ontario’s oldest neighbourhoods, now a hub of vibrant growth, partly due to the buzzing tech scene of the Waterloo-Toronto Tech Corridor.

Journey along King & Queen streets to explore dozens of independent, locally-owned shops, including coffee bistros, restaurants & pubs, art galleries & museums or venture just steps from the hotel to Kitchener-Waterloo's urban nature getaway, Victoria Park.

You’ll be captivated by this Kitchener-Waterloo hotel's amazing past, and charmed by its contemporary flare. From Eleanor Roosevelt’s preferred breakfast location on the interior terrace to Lennox Lewis’ boxing match in the Crystal Ballroom, every nook and cranny in this Kitchener-Waterloo hotel has a story to tell.

Hosting a meeting, wedding or special event? Welcome your guests to our newly renovated 2nd-floor event space featuring the latest in audiovisual needs, or stay over on one of our 3 floors of beautiful boutique hotel rooms! Staying in the only boutique hotel in Waterloo Region means your experience will be a unique one, catered to your wants & whims. We truly are unlike other Kitchener-Waterloo Hotels!
