    Beautiful Venue and Excellent Service

    The Walper Hotel wedding department is phenomenal to deal with. We planned our wedding for 75 guests in Kitchener for May 2020. 
    I met with Andréa from the Walper wedding department to plan for accommodations, a possible ceremony backup location and the rehearsal dinner. She was fabulous! Andréa made me feel like our wedding was a priority to the Walper and that she wanted to see us have a beautiful event. I can't emphasize what a gift this was. I always felt like she was in our corner and had our best interests in mind.
    The hotel has several options for ceremony and reception locations - each with beautiful architectural details and each with a different "vibe" to set the tone for your event.
    Before you book any venues for your upcoming wedding, I recommend that you take a tour of the Walper to get a sense of their gorgeous facilities and exceptional service.

    Beautiful venue

    Overall, we had a really beautiful wedding at The Walper Hotel. We had a few hiccups in the overall execution of the day as there was a second wedding happening the same night which created a few challenges; our wedding planner also changed right at the end of our wedding planning which may have contributed to a few misses from the time we booked to the big day. Ultimately we were pleased with the quality of the food and were very happy with the extras included in the winter wedding package. We also loved that we were able to o everything in one location, including having many photo ops with all of the beautiful spots in and around the hotel.

    Hidden Gem! AMAZING Service + Beautiful Venue

    We have been working with the Walper for the last 6 months to plan our August 2020 wedding. All of our interactions have been absolutely amazing with them. We have been incredibly impressed with the flexibility of their staff and the packages that they offer. Both Taylor and Andréa have been so accommodating, professional and friendly that I cannot say anything negative about our experience to date.

    Unfortunately, we had to make the decision to postpone until August 2021 due to Covid-19, but Andréa has made moving all our existing reservations over a dream.

    We would highly recommend this venue and staff to any new couples looking for a beautiful venue with great service. We are so glad we stumbled across this hidden gem!

    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.
