WELCOME TO THE WALPER HOTEL
Dear Clients and Friends,
We want you to know how deeply concerned we are with the rapidly changing COVID-19 crisis.
As we all band together as one community to stop the spread of the coronavirus we want you to know our team is making decisions based on the most recent information provided by WHO, local public health agencies and government officials, while keeping the health and safety of our employees and guests in mind.
The Walper Hotel has made the decision to temporarily close beginning March 22nd through to April 21st. We are taking this unprecedented step, in order to protect our people and the long-term sustainability of our business.
The world is experiencing a health and economic crisis not seen in our lifetime. We have every belief that these severe conditions will subside over time and we will once again be able to open our hotel and provide the superior hospitality and service that our hotel is known for.
In the interim, we will update the status of our position on our website, but for now, we hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy.
If you need to reach us, please call 519-745-4321 and a team member will help you.
Your Walper Family

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.

Each room comes stocked with just enough heritage, quirk and charm coupled with lovely modern amenities to ensure your comfort! We aimed for the perfect balance of timeless glamour and contemporary comfort, and we’re sure you’ll agree that we have succeeded.
These rooms aren’t pocket-sized, but they offer the same serene setting as some of our favourite parks. The perfect urban getaway, pocket rooms are positioned in the quietest locations throughout the building with views onto our internal courtyards and lane. Pocket rooms are available with one queen, one king, or two queen beds. This room type includes our accessibility rooms.
These rooms are located along the King and Queen Street sides of The Walper Hotel and are perfect for soaking in the scene starting with unrivaled views of the Kitchener cityscape. Cityside Kings are aptly named as all the rooms in this collection have one amazingly comfortable king bed.
