We had an amazing experience at the Copper Queen this past weekend. We stayed from 9-7-13 thru 9-9-13. It was everything we had hoped for and more. We spent some time chatting with the ladies at the front desk upon checkout, about our experiences in the Copper Queen and had a blast discussing our experiences with the "unseen residents". The...

I booked this for the price and location without knowing that it is also apparently a supernatural hotspot. The night we stayed they were hosting a ghost tour in the evening so the buzz of that added to the undoubtable charm of the hotel. But for all its charm, it could probably do with a bit of a spruce up....

The Copper Queen hotel is a classic turn of the (last) century hotel. It's authenticity can't be duplicated and is reason enough to visit, stay and eat. The service is superb and while the menu is simple, it's delicious! If you are visiting for the day, have lunch or dinner....you won't regret it!

I stayed at the Copper Queen last Thursday night. The hotel has a lot of history behind it and the rooms though not large are very nice and comfortable. The staff was very nice as well and very helpful with the location of things around town. Their restaurant serves great food, and the bartender in the hotel saloon was great....

We stayed at the CQ on 9/5/13. I was referred by a co-worker that has stayed there. We really liked the hotel. for being over 100 years old it was in really good shape (real KEYS!). The bedroom was large, clean and well-lit. The bathroom was also a good size and I loved the old-fashioned tub (similar to a claw-foot)....

We've stayed at the Copper Queen multiple times. We do love the history and the location to downtown. Last weekend, however, we paid $125 a night to stay in what barely qualifies as a closet and the bathroom was very dirty. We will be looking for a new "home" in Bisbee in the future.

Bisbee is a unique, quirky town and the same can be said for the Copper Queen Hotel. The lobby and common areas reflect the hotel's early 1900s origins, with lots of original fixtures and antiques. But the rooms are fairly bland and outdated, without much personality. The door to the bathroom hit one of the beds every time it was...

`Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us. We are sorry it was not to your liking. We do try very hard to maintain the history of every room here and each room is different. People seem to enjoy the fact that we try and keep it all original as possible. Maybe next time try a different room...

My much anticipated trip to Bisbee included a stay at the Copper Queen Hotel, rich in history and charm. This is a very beautiful and well kept place. Unfortunately, I will not be recommending this hotel in the future. Upon check-in, I tried to preview rooms as mentioned by reviewers, however the majority were occupied for the holiday weekend. So...

I first would like to thank you for staying at our wonderful historical hotel. I am sorry you encountered a few problems.

I recently stayed a night at the well-known Copper Queen Hotel. The view of the place was quite pleasant. The exterior of the facility was well kept along with the interior, and for the most case, the staff was very friendly during our check-in.

This hotel was built in 1902 and it fits perfectly with the western motif of the entire town. You feel like you're in the old west. It has window style air conditioning and an older style television but it also has squeaky floors, claw bathtubs, and sometimes you have to wait for hot water to appear.My friend and I had...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Copper Queen Hotel, built in 1898 and completed in 1902, was the product of a booming mining camp called Bisbee. Once the largest city between St. Louis and San Francisco, Bisbee is now a beautiful and quiet getaway. While the town of Bisbee has "grown" it has not lost its' charm. Soon after Bisbee became a town, Phelps Dodge Mining Company built the Copper Queen Hotel as a place for dignitaries and investors to relax in luxury. Construction was difficult because Phelps Dodge had to blast away and clear a large portion of the mountainside in order for building to begin. Although the most modern and up to date materials were used, it did not lessen the difficulty of each task. In order for concrete to be mixed, water had to be pumped up the hill from the mercantile, what is now called Copper Queen Plaza, on Main Street. The walls were constructed to be nearly 2 feet thick, which helps keep the hotel cool during the summer months. Once the Hotel was completed, anyone who walked through the doors would notice the mosaic tile from Italy. Since the Hotel was built in an Italian style, the tile was installed throughout the entire first floor lobby. The remaining tile can be seen in the Hotel entrance. As the story goes, the cathedral ceiling in the Palm Room was all fitted with Tiffany glass. Nobody knows when it came down or what happened to it. There was an open air hallway behind two large windows along the southeast wall that acted as air conditioning for that era. The front desk was fabricated out of Tiger Oak and was surrounded with a wrought iron security cage. The unique safe behind the desk was once used at the Copper Mine until it became too small for the company payroll, which was all paid in cash. It was then passed down to the Copper Queen Hotel. Phelps Dodge cleverly paid their employees in cash, to have their money quickly returned to them in goods and drinks. The Copper Queen Hotel was one of the most modern hotels in the West during that time. One can only imagine what changes the Hotel has gone through to accommodate the modern day traveler. Located roughly 100 miles southeast of Tucson and at an elevation of 5,300 feet, the Hotel is usually 10 to 20 degrees cooler than in Tucson or Phoenix. In the winter, we are even blessed with an occasional snowfall. Bisbee is the southern most mile high city in the U.S. And is eight miles from the border of Mexico. Although the Copper Queen Hotel has maintained the ambiance of the Victorian Era Old West, it has been renovated with modern day conveniences to make your stay more comfortable. ... more   less
