Right of passage for Bisbee virgins. Uncomfortable beds and cheap pillows and breakfast. Pretty claw foot tub that you're lucky if you don't fall when you get out. Charming, but there's probably better places to stay in town for the money you spend. Overall, kind of a letdown. I wanted the love my stay at the Copper Queen. No so...

We spent a Sunday afternoon in the bar at the Copper Queen and it was one of the best afternoons on our 2 week trip to Arizona. The whole town has a great buzz about it and this bar was exactly what we were looking for ,it had great food,great atmosphere and even when our order went wrong the girl...

You have to remember that you have stepped back in time. Don't look for a hair dryer in your room or expect hot water right away. But you can have a centrally located stay with many restaurant and bar choices and a choice of room size. It is a quiet hotel and in addition to a stairway to each floor,...

If you are in a touristy mood and poking around Southern Arizona, the Copper Queen is fine. It is a redo of a turn of the century building with small rooms, and a Victorian feel. All that said the hotel is clean, the service is fine and the people are very nice and want to make you feel at home....

Very little parking. Room was sparse and lacked the charm I was expecting. If you have issues with steps, this might not be the place for you. There is an elevator but there are steps all around the property. I noticed it says pet friendly but they told us at the desk - no pets. So check before you arrive....

Historic property with lots of stories to tell. It is from another time and definitely takes you back from the time you enter. Staff was nice, room was clean and beds were comfy. We were not visited by any of the permanent residents that we know of... and I was good with that :).

The server was lovely!! But the service was not prompt. We waited a long time to get the menus and drinks. None of that would have mattered, the food was very good. But when I got the bill I noticed they had already included 20% for gratuity, we were a party of 5. The amount is standard for me, BUT...

We had no problem finding a parking spot as there was one handicap parking spot within 10 feet of the front steps of the hotel. Anywhere we needed to go was within a short distance of the hotel. Walking into the hotel was like taking a step back in time. The decor is beautiful! The woman behind the front desk...

This hotel has an excellent reputation and history, however, our visit must have been an off week. Nearly everything that could go wrong happened to go wrong. We chalked it up as an adventure and will likely choose a different hotel on our next visit to Bisbee. If you stay here, ask for a room on the first floor or...

We were in Bisbee for only one day, but we were lucky enough to have lunch here. The menu is varied and delicious. Their menu is online at the hotel website. Prices are very reasonable too. The hotel entrance and dining room will take you back in time. We highly recommend eating here.

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
