When we pulled into town, we had no idea where we were going to stay. We parked and started walking and there was the Copper Queen. We went in and booked our stay and I remarked to my husband "Oh... look, it's supposedly haunted. haha!" I was laughing because I thought it was a marketing ploy. The clerk assigned us... More

I really liked this hotel. My husband was not as keen. Here's why I liked it: Great character hotel; lovely pool area (small and clean - not a lot of people using it); fun pub downstairs that had Celtic music group playing when we were there; nice sitting decks with rocking chairs; history of ghosts; clean, quiet, and cool room;...

We ate your copper queen Cafe and Tristan was our server. We could not have had better service. He was polite and right on. I have already recommended the cafe and to ask for Tristan to many people. We also stayed in a king room on the fourth floor. It was a fun experience and would go back and recommend... More

Loved everything about this 100+ year old hotel. Perfect location in the heart of Bisbee for access to shops, restaurants and night life. The hotel itself is a marvel - completely outfitted with antiques. I assume many are original. And it has the modern conveniences, too. - wifi, flat screen TVs, etc. the lobby is a work of 1900 art!

Decided to go to Bisbee, AZ for a day trip and explore the shops. When I got there one of the first places I stopped was the Copper Queen Hotel. After looking around the Hotel and finding out that it was haunted I had to stay a night. The nice young lady at the front desk was very kind and... More

Hotel is nice for an older place. Our room had a nice sitting room with a couch, good for reading, but TV not visible from anywhere but the bed. Sleep was marred by a pillow contaminated by a previous tenant who was a drooler. I thought housekeeping should have caught that. Plenty of spare pillows. Air conditioner a window unit... More

Now known as the Copper Queen Cafe, This the hotel owners latest attempt at running a restaurant. Open for some reason on Monday, and then Thursday through Saturday from 5 until 8 or 9, unless they don't feel like it, then they're closed. Decor? Not so much... It's a shame what they've done to this restaurant - many years ago... More

This hotel has the potential to really shine, it just needs some TLC. The lobby area seems to have had the most attention devoted to it. The floors with the guest rooms needs some restoration. Some of the carpet in the hallways is threadbare, the chairs in the guest rooms have oil & dirt stains where occupants have rested their... More

The rooms are nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. What you would expect from a historic hotel. I would recommend that if you are of a larger stature do not get room with shower only as they are quite small.

We selected Copper Queen as it would be in the center of most of the 4th of July festivities & we enjoy the quantness of it. We were not let down. We were able to use our room as a base to walk to so many wonderful spots in Bisbee. I have yet to have any paranormal experiences in CQ.

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
