The Upham Hotel

1404 De La Vina St. (E. Sola St.) Santa Barbara CA

Refined Victorian-era lodgings with the services of a small hotel.

The Upham Hotel

This Victorian gem is a few blocks from downtown but forms a little world of its own, recalling Santa Barbara's past. It was built in 1871, has been lovingly cared for and claims to be the oldest continuously operating hotel in Southern California. We recommend the five charming cottages in the garden, each with a fireplace and private porch. Most luxurious is the Master Suite with a Jacuzzi tub and private yard complete with a hammock. Each of the 50 rooms includes a private bath and exudes a delightful 19th-century ambience, with high ceilings and decorative fixtures. But décor also respects modern sensibilities, and instead of typical B&B floral wallpapers, is characterized by stunning designer paint in solid colors. Afternoon wine and cheese are served around the fireplace or on the veranda, and the room rates include breakfast. Well-regarded Louie's restaurant is located off the lobby, and there's year-round outdoor dining. Four meeting rooms can accommodate up to 60 people.
