Friendly, attentive service at check-in that went above and beyond. Great amenities, and beautifully appointed room. Service and food at TWH Social were excellent. A comfortable, relaxing weekend getaway that we would definitely consider again in the future.

About
Description
Immerse yourself in the historic charm of The Walper Hotel, an iconic 1893 landmark set along the quaint streets of one of Kitchener, Ontario's oldest neighbourhoods. You'll be captivated by this More building'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, to the tales of Al Capone's liquor smuggling operation in the cavernous basement restaurant, every nook and cranny in this Waterloo hotel has a story to tell.

I did the valet parking which I think was $15-20 a night but our friends did the off site parking just around the corner. I can't remember the cost but cheap.
