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.

We stayed here over the 4th of July, it was our second stay at the Copper Queen, and again, it did not disappoint! The location is the best, balconies to enjoy a cool breeze, and a great historical feel. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Bisbee!

I was very excited about the fact that the hotel was haunted as I would have liked to have a paranormal experience..... But to no avail there was zero paranormal activity for me... Not even an orb on a picture. The hotel is historic and that is its biggest selling point. It could do with upgrading its in room facilities... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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... 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
