Stayed here for our anniversary, ordered the romance package. Would not recommend this, as it was far from romantic! We got a bottle of Asti, not the champagne promised, the meal and service in the restaurant was not up to par. Steak was overcooked, fries heavily salted. The manager offered to rectify, but the meal was spoiled, as noone had...

We have stayed at the Copper Queen four times over the past few years. I would have to say, although the historical charm is amazing, the service and rooms have steadily deteriorated. We prefer to stay in older hotels with character and are not looking for new facilities so we understand and accept the quirks. From the time you walk...

We stayed at the Copper Queen and enjoyed it very much! (No, we did not see a ghost.) The place is very interesting, and I do not doubt we will stay there again.

We stayed at the Copper Queen on a Monday night. It was quite slow and not alot of people around. The town was quite. My boyfriend surprised me with a birthday get away for the two of us. He saw a package deal that included breakfast, museum tickets and Copper Mine tour tickets. When he called to make the reservation,...

Bisbee today is a bit of a nostalgic remnant of its former glory as a western boomtown and mining center. Back in its day, this town bustled and I bet it was dusty and loud. As a tourist you cannot go back! But I do recommend a stay here at the CQ. It offers an interesting stay. I have fond...

If you're going "historic" Bizbee, consider staying in this quaint hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, our room was clean and the location was convenient to everything. Keep in mind that this is an old place and that's the charm. Poor internet connections and fluctuating shower water are countered by the really cool people that you meet and the...

We went to Bisbee, I've been several times, to see the stock exchange board. It's a quaint town. We knew there were better lodging choices; however, we decided to stay at the historic Copper Queen hotel for the novelty and history. The staff were friendly and our room clean. Recent owners have tried to restore some charm to the hotel,...

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....

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
