Victorian Hotel Built in 1893

Since its construction in 1893, The Walper Hotel has counted many larger-than-life figures as clientele: Eleanor Roosevelt enjoyed breakfast in the landscaped courtyard, and Louis Armstrong once played his trumpet off the King Street balcony. Part of the hotel's A-list appeal could be traced to its passion for the arts—a curated collection of contemporary Canadian paintings and photographs are displayed throughout the guest rooms and common areas. It also features glamorous touches such as a crystal ballroom illuminated by 12 chandeliers.

Standard rooms feature high ceilings and period furniture mixed with contemporary updates such as original artwork and flat-screen TVs. Large windows let in abundant natural light. Come morning, guests have their pick of a seasonally rotating menu of breakfast foods.

Located in the heart of the tech triangle, the hotel is just a short distance from numerous shops and restaurants. Guests traveling between July 1 and July 12 can partake in Kitchener's 12 Days of Awesome, which includes the Canada Day Music and Fireworks Event, Night Art Market, Downtown Food Festival, Halls Lane Ally Party, and Cruising on King Street. All of these events take place just a few steps away from the hotel property. Other local summer events include Rib Fest or the Rib and Craft Beer Show on July 19 and July 20, as well as Rock and Rumble on July 26.

Kitchener, Ontario: European Heritage on Display Throughout Museums and City Parks

Situated on the Grand River in southwest Ontario, Kitchener is the cultural hub of the Waterloo Region. In 1800, German Mennonites journeyed from Pennsylvania to settle in this farming region, known as Berlin between 1854 and 1916. Five miles from the hotel, Doon Heritage Village simulates life in the region in 1914, and just around the corner, the Joseph Schneider Haus preserves artifacts from the Germanic settlement.

Of Kitchener's 220 city parks, the crown jewel is Victoria Park, which was built in 1896 by the famed firm of Frederick Law Olmsted (best known for designing Central Park in New York City). It centers on a massive clock tower salvaged from the old city hall as well as a cast bronze statue of Queen Victoria.
