What a wonderful old hotel. It has kept the charm of yesteryear yet the rooms are very comfortable. We had room #204 which is way in the back of the hotel. It was very bright and welcoming. We didn't eat in the restaurant as we were warned that the food wasn't up to par. However, after a few drinks in...

Just spent a night at the Copper Queen. Did you know this is the oldest hotel west of the Mississippi? I didn't either. Had a tour of the hotel by the owner. Lots of famous people stayed here in the past and my favorite writer JA Jance has a room named after her here. Saw John Waynes personal room. All...

Stayed at the hotel cause it seemed a cool thing to do. While the hotel is awesome and has the whole ghost thing going for it, find another place to stay. The beds are just as old as the hotel and don't lend to a good nights sleep. The constant noise of dozens of pigeons was annoying. Take a stop...

Great location in Bisbee. The room was nice, but the mattress was the worst I have ever slept on. They did give compensation on the price of of our stay. Could use some amenity upgrades for the price.

Staying at the Copper Queen was the highlight of our trip to Bisbee. The ambience and charm of the hotel was great. Our only complaint was that we were there on Tues. and Weds. and the dining room was closed which was disappointing. The bar did have some food offers that were quite good, but there was no breakfast. A...

You find signs to the hotel on the main street, park in a two hour parking spot and take a nice climb up to the hotel to ask where you can park more than two hours. (Understandably parking is at a premium) Personnel at the Guest Desk are very friendly and helpful. We found a parking spot and came with...

My wife and I love old buildings. This hotel has been maintained with care. The room was small BUT old hotel rooms were! Clean and the staff was friendly. A great location in old Bisbee. We ate dinner in the restaurant one night and found the food and service to be excellent.

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
