Professional, helpful, attentive staff … beautiful lobby … crazy comfortable beds and pillows … artistically appealing fixtures from wallpaper to lighting to shower to cupboard to bathrobes … the coffee (& service) in the room was delightful … soap and shampoo was extraordinary … easy access for buses both in and out of town … lots of shops, restaurants and cafes in the immediate neighbourhood … Loved it here!!

I stumbled upon this hotel via Google and was delighted to have had the chance to try it. It is fabulous and the best I have stayed in during my recent trip to Canada. Every member of staff was friendly, helpful and very polite. The beautifully designed rooms are quiet, spotlessly clean with super comfortable beds and pillows and excellent bathrooms. Great breakfasts too.

I was pleasantly surprised when I visited Kitchener recently on business and stayed at The Walper Hotel. It is a lovely small boutique hotel that was recently renovated impeccably and tastefully. The common areas were beautiful and the room was spacious and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and available for any assistance needed. I would highly recommend this hotel if you find yourself in this area as it is hard to imagine a better stay in Kitchener.

My hubby and I LOVED our one night stay at The Walper!! Upon arrival, we were greeted with a smile and check in was smooth with the Front Desk Ambassador team.

Highlights:
- Location was great as we had an appointment in walking distance the following day ... and centrally located to meet family
- Room on a higher floor with beautiful furnishings, wonderful welcome with personalized touches such as morning goody bag and 'JUST Water'
- Breakfast at Barristers Lounge at 10am, after the morning rush was relaxing ... yummy Walper Benedict!

Shout-Out to Team
- Jess provided an excellent first impression and awesome customer service
- Fahad, Ashley and Sarah were friendly, helpful and accommodating
- Carina in Housekeeping was courteous and kind; room was cleaned with care
- Server in Barristers Lounge was efficient and personable

Tips
- If you want to self park at garage across from hotel, take advantage of having parking charges billed through The Walper; if wanting to leave car after checkout at noon (ie. arrived at 4 pm prior day), ensure that your parking validation is set for 24 hours later, so that you can leave a few hours after check out

- FYI, there are no 'Do not Disturb' sign if you want to hang on door, to forego housekeeping, so you may need to call/text to let the Front Desk team know, if you don't want to be disturbed

Things you may want to try that we didn't get to Experience:
- check out Good Life Fitness (complimentary day pass) ... just a short walk down the street
- The Lokal for evening cocktails ... a fun space!

We would definitely return to The Walper. It's a beautiful, contemporary hotel, and rooms (+ showers) are amazing. Fantastic experience with excellent customer service!!
