The Copper Queen was not much of a Queen! The hotel was what it was expected to be historic and has kept up its appearances. The restaurant was under renovation so cannot comment. The front desk staff were definitely bored with their job no greetings or smiles at check in and the second time one person remained on the phone...

We spent one night-March 14, 2017- at this hotel. Our experience was not good. The hotel could be beautiful but has not been well maintained. The room was dirty and our feet literally stuck to the bathroom floor. We were told there would be muffins and fruit on the second floor in the morning. When our friend mentioned at checkout...

The Copper Queen Hotel is a great charming historic hotel built in 1902. Feels like stepping back in time to the heyday of copper mining. Great location in the center of Bisbee. An easy day trip from Phoenix or Tucson. The rooms are nice and retain the feel of the historic hotel. Some are small and some are large. Be...

Kitchen closed until April, may be . don't waste your time going.$6 margaritas might ease the pain if you are already there and have found a place to park. I block away the Stock Exchange bar had very good pizza. You might check them out since your already there.

We spent one night in March 2017. It is an old historic hotel....and has been well kept up...however it just wasn't worth $180 per night. It was midweek and we did book short notice. We booked through Expedia and were informed that breakfast was included. However upon arrival we were told the restaurant was closed for renovations and there would...

...and seriously, customer service is clearly not a priority, either. Apparently, they have one pet friendly room, and it is under construction and unavailable. And the front desk guy is really unpleasant.

We stayed at the Copper Queen Hotel on March 4th and it was the worst stay ever. We checked in at 6:15pm thinking we had reservations for 9 people at 7pm in the dining room. Once we showed the hostess told us that we don't have reservations and that they had a private party in the dining room. One of...

The building architecture and lobby furniture is clearly historic which drew me in. Surprisingly the old elevator works well. No problem getting hot water fast when using the sink or shower. I adored the wall paper in the room and hallways. Very clean in the entire hotel. The lighting in the bathroom must have been updated in the 70's. They...

We were part of a tour group. It was a quirky place, the desk staff didn't seem to know what was going on. The room was clean, comfortable but the window was very drafty, lots of street noise. Locals kept asking if we saw any ghosts.

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...

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
