- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1893 and renovated in 2011, and following in the footsteps of notable visitors, The Walper invites its guests to rediscover the hotel where guests have enjoyed the rich architectural details of a time gone by, blended with the attentive, warm and welcoming service only experience can deliver. Credited as the original commercial establishment in the town of Berlin, and recognized as the first to have hydropower, guests will be treated to a unique balance of history and modern comfort as they stay, dine, or celebrate in the hotel enjoyed by William Lyon Mackenzie King, Wilfrid Laurier, Pierre Trudeau and nearly every other Canadian Prime Minister. Among others, Eleanor Roosevelt enjoyed breakfast in the courtyard and Louis Armstrong played his trumpet off the King Street balcony. Guests are encouraged to explore the building that housed liquor smuggled by Al Capone and that hid Lady Gaga, the queen of display, who remained unrecognized days into her stay. Visitors will dine in the Ballroom where Lennox Lewis once fought, and relax in suites enjoyed by everyone from Royalty, to leaders in the Arts, Cultural, Technological, and Political Realms who have chosen The Walper as their preferred accommodation in the area for over 120 years. ... more less
