First thing we are an old building and it does take a while for the first person in the building to get hot water. Once the hot water is in the building it’s Hot! When this gentleman first complained I checked out the room after he left and the water was hot. There is no way that I or any...

this is a historic hotel in the mining now resort town of Bisbee. It is the oldest operating hotel and it is apparent. The hotel makes a lot of it's business off of the ghost sighting trade and overall has a very authentic turn of the century feel - decor and artifacts and lovely pictures with descriptions. But understanding this,...

If you read our ads you would know we are a boutique hotel and not a Marriott. Our rooms are clean and offer a homey feeling. There is a hotel book in every room that explains everything you would need to know about the property from how to acquire a hairdryer down to Wifi instructions. This review started good and...

My husband and I recently took a group of 53 senior Arizona hikers to this hotel for two nights, and it was a wonderful experience for our group -- especially if you like historic places. The owners were very helpful in making arrangements before we arrived, and everything went smoothly when we were in Bisbee, which is a delightful town....

I love this hotel! I visit Bisbee often, but usually bring dogs so the one time I didn't, I was able to stay there. Seriously, the hallways are like from The Shinning, but that's what I'm into, so it hit the spot! Read the journal entries in the hotel lobby and hopefully before check out, you will have your own...

Great place in town to put an important hotel but it is all beat up. Desk persons unenthusiastic, lobby and elevator dirty, room just ok but paint nicks and stuck windows were clearly signs of a management that had given up. The breakfast waitperson didn't show up so we had breakfast across the street.

Stayed there twice. Love the hotel's history. Great location. If you like charming hotels with loads of history, you need to stay here. If you have a ghost encounter be sure to add your experience to the ghost log at the front desk.

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
