A new year is all about making resolutions. At The Walper Hotel in downtown Kitchener, they’ve resolved to take your well-being to heart with their new wellness initiatives.
The Walper is raising a toast to your health with a couple of new drink creations. Executive Chef Jeff Ward has created The Walper’s new Golden Milk Latte, available during breakfast at The Barrister’s Lounge. This crafted hot beverage includes healthy ingredients like turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, vanilla, coconut oil, and cashew milk. Tumeric is the superstar in this latte, providing anti-inflammatory properties. It also helps to warm you up – perfect during our cold winter weather!
At The Lokal, The Walper’s gathering space and bar, in-house mixologist Stacey Anderson has developed the Ginger Zinger Cocktail, featuring ginger beer, black cow vodka, lime juice and cacao nibs. Ginger has powerful healing qualities, and it also possesses potent detoxifying properties—ideal to combat the effects of the winter flu season.
You are what you eat, and The Walper has your well-being in mind with a number of healthy food choices. Check out the fresh lunch and dinner choices at TWH Social, with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. There’s the veggie-dense Queen Street Buddha Bowl, the Heritage Greens salad with roasted cauliflower, and David’s Hearty Chicken Soup with its enriched broth, which may be just what you need to keep colds at bay!
Even the guest rooms at The Walper are designed with your wellness in mind. You’ll find little extras like all-natural, cold-processed vegan soaps made locally in Cambridge by Buck Naked Soap Company, and in-room diffusers with your choice of three essential oil blends to help elevate your mood. Guests of The Walper are also given complimentary access to Goodlife Fitness or Queen Street Yoga to help them stay on track with their fitness goals during their stay.
Historic character, contemporary style and wellness options you can take to heart – enjoy it all at The Walper Hotel!
