“Great service at the Copper Queen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2008

I Just returned from a company trip to Bisbee, AZ. We brought down 80 people and completely took over the Copper Queen Hotel. I am sure it was a huge undertaking to manage all of us at once, but they did it! I stayed in a beautiful room overlooking the main entrance. The staff was very nice and accomodating. We were treated to a coffee bar and excellent breakfast, lunches and dinners. the hotel bar is quaint and offered live music.

If you are going to travel to Bisbee. The Copper queen is a excellent place to stay.

I want to thank all the staff at the Copper Queen. They were all great. I went on a company trip, we took over the hotel for 2 nights and all the staff was very attentive. I didn't expect all this wonderful service and I would love to go back.

Everyone was really excited to have some paranormal experiences. Some had stories to tell at the end of our trip.

Again Thank you for everything

On a recent spring break trip to southeastern Arizona with our two young kids (girl age 7, boy age 4 1/2), we had a wonderful 2 night stay at The Copper Queen Hotel in Bisbee, which we used as our base for day trips to nearby Tombstone and Karchner Caverns, among other local attractions. Shawn at the front desk was particularly helpful in making reservations, which is no small feat in early April. We booked two adjoining rooms, including the historic "Teddy Roosevelt Room," on the 4th floor. The rooms were spacious, clean and nicely furnished consistent with the historic feel of the hotel. Although they had clawfoot tubs, the bathrooms were updated, clean and the extra counter space around the sinks is much appreciated. The beds were firm and comfortable. We are veteran travelers (with and without the kids) and found The Copper Queen to be incredibly user friendly. There is a lovely "living room" area on the second floor with a fireplace for gathering or games. The Winchester restaurant in the hotel was unexpectedly good as well as convenient. We had terrific breakfasts and one impressive dinner there; there is outdoor seating on a pretty terrace. Service was good and everyone was courteous and nice (even to those of us with young kids). A small saloon bar serves coffee in the morning and much needed cocktails (at least for parents) in the evening. Even the old elevator was fast. The Copper Queen is smack in the middle of the charming town of Bisbee and there is easy parking just up the street. This is a special place that makes for a perfect base of operations to explore this unique part of the world.

Stayed at the Copper Queen and had a wonderful time!! Hotel was very comfortable, and the staff and food was excellent! I am a professional who thinks that quiting my job, and waiting tables in Bisbee might be the best thing that ever happened to me ! Please go, and try the Copper Queen, you will not be disapointed.

We booked our two night stay thru the internet, and had some concerns after reading a few bad reviews however, we decided to take a chance because we liked the "history" of this grand old hotel. We stayed in the "John Wayne" room and found it to be very comfortable. The owners and staff could not have been nicer. The bar is a local favorite and can been lively especially, on weekends. Our room was very quiet and comfortable. The food in the dining room was wonderful and service was great. We are happy to recommend this hotel and would certainly look forward to staying there again.

We like Historical Hotels for their character. The staff was nice and the room was good. The "Theme" rooms were sold out, so we stayed in a regular room.We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and enjoyed both. Our only minor complaint is that Decaf coffee isn't available in the AM from the bar. I have to drink only Decaf due to heart palpatations. The restaurant did serve Decaf.

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
