Perfect weekend getaway

I booked this stay with little time to explore other options but was not disappointed. Perfect weather, perfect location to walk to State street and take the trolley down to the beach. Staff wonderful - breakfast was really great and it was so nice to sit on the front porch with coffee in hand. I am not a big wine and cheese fan but the oreo cookies were awesome. Tight parking lot though - better for small cars vs SUV's or trucks.

Great place to stay

The Upham was a great place to stay. I liked the rooms, and the hotel staff were very friendly and courteous. The rooms are well decorated and the beds are very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful, a great place to relax and read a book or just get some sun. I like the fact that it is very close to State Street, so we could walk to shopping and dining. I would recommend this place to anyone that wants to get away for fun and relaxation...

great and historic gem

I loved my stay here. The staff was wonderful, the room was great, and the breakfast was delicious (as was the wine & cheese happy hour). The hotel's grounds are simply wonderful. Make sure to sit in the courtyard and appreciate them for an hour. It will make your vacation even better,

Beautiful Garden/Hotel

I've stayed at the Upham a number of times., and have enjoyed them all. The location is splendid: On a quiet street, but only two blocks from State Street and at the northern terminus of the State St. trolley, a convenient way to get to the beach. The gardens are spectacular, the staff friendly, and the rooms, while not your standard chain hotel fare, clean and comfortable. The daily breakfast is a bit limited in scope, however, and could be upgraded.

Very cute place

It was great except there was no air conditioning and it got pretty hot/humid during the day.

Beautiful gardens. Clean (though small) room with a nice little patio. Enjoyed the evening wine & cheese. Would definitely stay again.

State Street is 2 blocks up. Lots of great restaurants & shops. Highly recommend Arigato, if you're a sushi fan.
