The decor and style was unique. So refreshing from the typical hotel style! Loved the downtown setting, old building but beautifully modern decor. Very quiet, and high quality items in the room.

The room overall was nice, really liked the hardwood floors.

Exterior under construction, very hard to find the actual entrance to the hotel! Recommended parking is quite a walk with suitcases, and no temporary parking to unload. Lovely front desk personnel. Would have appreciated a comfortable reading chair in the room. Lots of lovely towels! Thanks!

The lobby is sparkling white and beautiful. Haley checked us in and was very friendly and efficient. We had a pocket King room which was small but very well appointed with robes, towels, mini fridge- everything we could need. Even chilled glasses in the fridge. The hotel is an older building that was renovated, so the noise of people in the hall and doors shutting is evident. Other than that, the hotel is absolutely lovely. Very cool industrial decor too.

The hotel and amenities are wonderful . We were there for business and the staff greeted us like family . One thing I would point out is ask for a room that does not over look any of the streets. It does get noisy at night.

Dear Anonymous, Thanks so much for taking the time to review your recent visit to The Walper Hotel. We like to think of feedback as a gift so thank you for giving us yours! In order to maintain our 126 year old building, we had to have a bit of a face-lift done! We're sorry if this caused any inconvenience throughout your stay! With a construction year of 1893 and well before cars were invented, a hotel parking lot was not a consideration at the time. To make up for this we do offer an unloading zone in front of the hotel, valet spots directly beside us, and access to the City's Charles and Benton parking garage which is just across the street! If you would like to discuss your time with us further, then we would love to hear from you! We would like to kindly encourage you to reach out to our Director of Rooms, Ann Marie Faria, to further discuss your stay with us! Thanks again, and we do hope to have the opportunity to host you again the next time you are in Kitchener! Warmest regards, Jess McLean
