“Wonderful historical hotel, but service could be a bit better.”
Reviewed 30 October 2009

This hotel certainly gets top marks for character and atmosphere and is definitely worth a stay. However, we did have some concerns - when you are paying over $150/night,
you should be provided with more than 1 chair (the other person has to sit on the bed),
a hairdryer and a box of kleenex. Also, the TV screen is the smallest we've seen in a hotel anywhere. The room was very small and cramped. We had asked for a quiet room and were placed on the 2nd floor. The music from the bar could be easily heard within our room until the early hours of the morning. It took us a couple of nights to figure out where it was coming from, as there are several bars in the area. In all fairness, after figuring it out, we did complain and were offered another room. However, we only had one more night, so it didn't seem worth it. The staff are generally good, but some seemed to have a somewhat lackadaisical attitude. However, if you like a wonderful historic building, with resident ghosts, this is the place to stay.

Had a wonderful overnite stay. Staff was very friendly and quick to respond to requests. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Comfortable lounge with lovely outdoor patio overlooking the front entrance. The" Winchesters" resturant has an excellent chef and the prices were very reasonable, and again a lovely outdoor seating made it a very wonderful evening. Thanks to the staff at the "Copper Queen Hotel" I enjoyed it very much Thanks Scott Dennen, Running Springs , CA

Stayed with my husband and 2 kids. Loved the hotel. Very clean and well up kept. My kids loved the dog behind the front desk, very play full and friendly. The staff was great they took care of everything I needed and had all the answers to my questions. This is a place we will return to in the future.

Spent a girl's weekend in Bisbee and fell in love with the town! What a quirky, charming community, can't wait to return. Unfortunately, we chose to stay at the Copper Queen Hotel. The patio is fun, a great place for coctails with friends. That's where the good ends. The lobby and room were old, musty, stale, and outdated. I'm guessing the rooms were supposed to look true to the period of the hotel. Instead, the wallpaper was hideous, carpet looked worn, bedspreads were old chenille, a dusty lace curtain on the very tiny window, and a unit air conditioner that groaned. I paid $189 for that room...waaayy too much. Next time I'll have coctails on the patio and stay at the San Ramon.

What a nasty horrid hotel , rooms out of date , no charm food poor staff rude.

Look they say its got History it has , but thats not enough to make a hotel tick .And why would you keep a Rottweiler behind the front desk of a hotel ?

I love this place. Dom at the front desk is awesome. We stayed on the 4th floor in room 409. I didn't know that the 4th and 3rd floors supposedly have a lot of paranormal activity before I arrived. I did know it was rumored to be a haunted hotel though, but was shocked to know most of it was on our floor. We definitely had some very strange things that happened in our room the one night we stayed so i have to say I kind of think that what they say may be true. This place was fun to stay at, can't wait to go back for a longer stay. It is pricey so make sure you get your moneys worth and use all the amenities of the hotel.

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
