    A Big WOW for the Walper

    I booked my wedding at a venue in Downtown Kitchener and booked my wedding hotel block at the Walper Hotel. The level of service that Chynna and the whole team at the Walper offered us totally blew me away. Despite the fact that we did not have a wedding booking at the Walper itself, we were treated like VIPs every step of the way. They allowed us to use an unused event room for a small rehearsal the night before, free of charge. And they set up a phenomenal "getting ready" suite for the bridal party, the likes of which my mobile hair and makeup artists had never seen before. It had more than enough space for all their stuff and for everyone to comfortably hang out there. As if that wasn't enough, Chynna also upgraded our suite, and let us take photos on site at the Walper on the day of, despite the fact that they had another, larger wedding ON SITE that very same day! They always treated our party as a priority. You would never know that we were their second, much smaller booking on that day. Honestly, the wedding was perfect and a big part of that was the generosity, flexibility and fabulous customer service offered to us by Chynna and the whole team at the Walper Hotel. If you are getting married in Kitchener, you must talk to them.

    The Walper Hotel and their staff were so wonderful to work with from the very beginning!! They made sure no detail was missed and were very flexible to ensure our dreams became a reality. Leading up to wedding they were always very responsive, helpful, professional and flexible. Their team worked together like a well oiled machine making sure that no detail was missed and the entire day went smoothly. We also enjoyed our rehearsal dinner and post wedding Brunch at the Walper Hotel with our guests. People are still talking about the food! Everything was truly perfect! Thank you to The Walper Hotel and all of their staff for all of your hard work and for ensuring we had the most perfect Wedding experience!

    We had our wedding there on September 16th and it was phenomenal. Leah, Mick, Joel and staff did a great job of making sure that our wedding day went smoothly, right down to helping us by fixing our seating chart when all the cards fell off. Joel and the kitchen staff did a fantastic job on the meal, our guests are still talking about how great the food was.

    Matt and I could not have asked for a more fantastic day!
