Host Your Next Event at The Walper Hotel

Since 1893, we’ve been Kitchener’s centre for commerce and trade — a premier downtown setting for meetings and dealmaking, for shop talk and goal setting. Following our sweeping transformation in 2016, the Walper Hotel is once again the epitome of style and sophistication, with service unmatched in Waterloo Region.  Meetings, Corporate events, and all manner of functions in between like executive retreats or week-long conferences are our specialty.
