The Copper Queen has lots of interesting features to explore--intersting lobby (check out the safe behind the front desk), the 3rd floor porch for rocking and relaxing in the afternoons, 2nd floor gathering space, the bar with it's interesting backbar from an old saloon, the front patio for enjoying a bite to eat or a cold drink, the hotel restaurant,...

The wife and I enjoyed a romantic valentines day weekend by driving down to Bisbee and taking in a little haunted holiday. Although we didn't encounter any ghosts, per se, we did enjoy a great ghost walking tour and a lot of history of a historic hotel in a very cool town. The room itself was converted from two smaller... More

Our group of 53 hikers spent 2 nights at the Copper Queen.. The service was excellent. The staff was warm and welcoming. They went out of their way to accommodate our needs. Being an old hotel the rooms were quaint but sufficient. Bathroom was fairly large. We had a double bed and would ask for a king or queen next... More

Upon arrival, a staff member assisted us with getting our luggage from a distant parking spot to our room. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

We had the pleasure of visiting the Copper Queen Hotel in Bisbee, AZ on March 18 & 19. The staff was outstanding and we had a wonderful time. Our room was clean and comfortable and we could not have been happier with the overall quality of our stay. Thanks to all who treated us to a memorable visit!

Wonderful service by the staff. Our room was bright and airy. While lighting was adequate, it was hard to read in room. However, there was a delightful "sitting room" on the second floor. The lobby area was also authentically charming. Several in our party bought jewelry, on display in the lobby, which they deemed to be very reasonable priced.

I love old, historic hotels and this one filled the bill. Upside: great service, great location in central Bisbee, good food in restaurant. Downside: It took forever for water to heat up, showers are tiny, tiny, tiny; hotel is not handicap friendly, Our room was small, but adequate. King sized bed was quite comfortable.

The hotel relies on solar heating for the water. There was a small note in the bathroom that said it might take a few minutes for the water to heat up. We were not told this at check-in. (we would not have stayed had we known this) Well, the "few minutes" actually took 30 minutes. 30 minutes of water going... More

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
