We stayed there a few weeks ago, the place is old, smelly, uncomfortable bed, had to run the tub water for 15 mins. to finally get hot water in the morning (they said that's normal), prices for what you get are very disheartening. No coffee pot in the room either. I wanted to stay at a charming local place but... More

The Copper Queen is clearly historic. I can see that in the 80's they did a complete facelift and restored it to its previous "glory." It is clear it has been at least 30 years since the hotel was updated. I would urge the management to consider new carpeting, furniture, wallpaper, and televisions. The price they charge is commensurate with... More

Room was very small, but I expected that when I made my reservation. What I didn't expect was the extremely loud noise coming from outside the hotel that was generated by the first floor bar and outdoor patio. The noise continued until 1:30 AM. The shower was pathetic. You had two choices; Scalding hot or freezing cold. When I pointed... More

The Copper Queen is a beautiful old hotel with a great location in the fascinating town of Bisbee. That said, though, it's showing its years, and not in a good way - the 70s-era bathrooms are badly in need of an update, and the whole place reminds you of your grandma's house. Bisbee is on the upswing as a destination,... More

We enjoyed the character of the hotel, the ambiance of the restored interior and were all blown away by the great food. The menu was simple but offered excellent choices and after being there on this one occasion, I wanted to return again asap.

This was my first time in Bisbee. It was fun staying at a historic hotel, and perhaps small rooms goes with that territory. We reserved a "standard queen" room, and thought it was very small for the price we paid. Parking is where ever you can find it on the street and public lot. The location is great, but there... More

Girls road trip to Bisbee, stayed at the copper Queen Hotel. Front desk staff was fun with the history and hauntings of the hotel. Beautiful old building, comfortable beds, and nice set up of bathroom with sink in outer area and toilet and tub behind a door, great for gals sharing. Free WiFi and complimentary breakfast was good. No ghostly... More

I'm here now (3/27/14). Lovely exterior. Lobby nice. These made me think I was going to have a great experience. "Saloon" and restaurant not so great. Told desk I wanted a room with a view of town or hills. Said they'd fix me up if I didn't mind paying more for one of their special rooms. I got the Teddy... More

The Copper Queen was a perfect fit for a stay in the timeless mining town, now an artist community, of Old Bisbee. The hotel reflects the history of the area brilliantly through it's architecture and decor. The service was very good, especially considering that much of Old Bisbee runs on it's own time schedule. The Copper Queen staffs the desk... More

Let me first caveat this review.....I only stayed a night in in one of the small rooms with a full bed which are on the third floor and the price was $89/night. The room was about the size of a shoe box but I was really not expecting much more. And while the size was not a disappointment the cleanliness... More

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
