“'Excellent Experience'”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Well what can I say? I like old hotels. Although some of the hotels room had signs, which boasted of 'alleged' paranormal activity; for example, my niece, son, and I stayed in 'Billy's Room,' and I found that this was simply 'smoke and mirrors.' However again if you purchase the 'ghost tour' with the room, you get the run of the hotel, which was very cool. Also only ghost tour participants were allowed to check out rooms on the fourth floor, which was closed to the rest of the hotel guests; except for those who took the tour. On our particular tour, some of the guests included; a very funny couple, and a couple who worked on the set of the 'Scream Films.' My niece and I laughed so hard and for so long on this ghost tour that we literally laughed ourselves to sleep. This has to go down as one of the best travel experiences that I have ever had. I would highly recommend this for anyone who has teenagers, especially teenagers with a good sense of humor! :)

Room Tip: This is a great location for individuals with older children; especially teenagers.

This hotel is right in the middle of town - close to the restaurants and bars. I would stay here again just for the location. The rooms were not bad - they just needed some new carpet and touch up.. but the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were clean. Bathroom was large and had a good shower/bath. We looked at other hotels in town and I feel like this one was by far the best. It has a cool bar and decent restaurant in it as well. Also has a small pool which we enjoyed. I would definitely stay there again

The Cooper Queen is a beautiful historic hotel. Our room was on the 4th floor and was decorated to the era. It was decorated to the era which sometimes can be uncomfortable (room chairs were hard). Our night was filled with a little bit of the charm of a ghostly visit when one of us had an episode of waking up with the voice of someone in trouble. Spooky, but it did happen! The staff was very helpful and our only compliant was the night time bar staff. She was not happy to be there! We were sitting outside on the balcony and there was only one other group besides ours and we had to go inside twice for service! Not the best of service since we were there for 2 hours and there was only one other group.....other than ours! Otherwise, I would recommended to anyone looking for a bit of history.

We stayed in Bisbee at the Copper Queen Hotel last weekend & had a fantastic time. The hotel was very friendly & accommodating. The only thing missing was we saw no ghosts & not for a lack of trying. We will stay here again on our next visit.

Room Tip: Try to get room number 315, 402 or 411. They have the most haunting experiences.

The Copper Queen is what it claims to be--an old hotel--but convenient, a very good restaurant, lounge is quite nice (quaint) the balcony is a good touch. By way of criticism, old becomes older faster when it's not maintained i.e. door knobs need to be tightened, entry sets should be kept tight, that is the locks are loose. In these cases an old hotel's best friend can be a simple screw driver. Bed was comfortable, bathroom is more than adequate, A/C was noisy but help to maintain an undisturbed night sleep.

Rooms at the Copper Queen are very basic but comfortable. The real draw of this hotel is the history, potential for ghost sitings, and central location to all the best places to shop and eat in Bisbee. The hotel saloon is also a great place to start and end the evening.

The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were pleasant and friendly. The only disappointment was that there were no ghostly activities. So much for being haunted. The complimentary continental breakfast was somewhat of a disappointment as well. Fresh fruit would have been a welcome addition.

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
