Read this if you have reserved a room here for 2020. Their reservation system crashed and they lost all the data, including who has reserved a room. People are showing up with confirmations but no room because there is no record of the reservation. Call them and rebook if you are planning to stay. The front desk is handling the very difficult situation beautifully, but it is straining everyone.

This is a lovely, historic place. The whole building has been maintained and restored to early twentieth century beauty with modern amenities, such as solid Wifi. Your stay will be lovely. Just check your reservation.

We were directed to the Copper Queen Hotel by a local resident who told us about its background. So, to some extent, we knew what to expect.

It is a family-run hotel. As such, it lacks many of the amenities seen in chain hotels (e.g., card key entry, valet parking, room service etc). However, it is charming & historical and the staff are approachable and accommodating.

The hotel is old & shows its age. Many (especially those who stay for several days) may find this aspect disconcerting, but it is, after all, part of the charm of staying in a historical hotel reputed to be haunted by at least 3 ghosts (per the booklet in the hotel room). For the record, we did not see or hear any ghosts during our one night stay.

The CQ's location, adjacent to the museum, makes it a convenient base for sightseeing. Also, the CQ is, apparently, the only hotel in Bisbee with an elevator. We were allowed to choose from several rooms. As part of that process, we got to see the Lilly Langtry room (the best in the hotel according to the owner) but it was a little too flamboyant for us (brass beds, a picture of Lilly over the bed etc).

Our room on the 4th floor, with 2 queen beds, was clean and quiet with wallpaper reminiscent of the Victorian era. The windows (3) were small and set high in the wall. One window contained the heating/ac unit. Consequently there was no view from that window. From the 2 other windows, there was quite a nice view of a hillside with houses. The bathroom was fairly large with a shower-tub combo. The closet was in a little alcove. We had a little difficulty opening and closing the room door, but they dealt with the problem by giving us a new key.

The included breakfast was spartan (the owner warned us about this when we checked in).

Parking is on the street or in the adjacent YMCA parking lot. Exiting from the YMCA lot was more difficult than we anticipated as the one-way road was narrow and steep but we learned to adapt.

Suggestions: (1)The addition of a ramp beside the front steps will be helpful for the many guests with mobility issues. (2) Replacing the room door locks with card keys or programmable keyless entry systems would be a relatively low cost upgrade that would enhance the stay experience.

This historic hotel is very atmospheric, or at least we thought so until we got to our room on the 4th floor. On the plus side the room was large and clean, but the only (small) window was mostly blocked by an air conditioner (even in January), so it was extremely dark and dreary. The bed was a king size, which was good because only about 2/3 of it was flat enough to sleep on. A friend had a single room on the 3rd floor, and it looked brighter and more welcoming. However, our experience was that it seems this hotel is not investing in its guest rooms, or at least not in all of them. If you go, consider asking for a room with at least one large window, and I would think a street view would be pleasant too. This hotel was charming in its public areas but very disappointing in the rooms we saw. Not really worth the money but OK for a brief stay.

The historic CQ is a beautiful property with lots of history and even tales of a few ghosts. It's conveniently located within walking distance of restaurants and the mine tour. Our room was clean but otherwise very disappointing. We would guess occupancy was under 10% yet we had an inside room with no outside view. There was a window but it was blocked by a noisy air conditioner that kept us awake. Staff was friendly but if we were to visit Bisbee again we wouldn't stay at the CQ.

We are so glad that we stayed here verses a regular chain hotel. We were attracted to it based on it's history. The lobby was very interesting but a not so impressive, but when we opened the door to our room we were extremely and pleasantly surprised. The room was huge, immaculate, and very well maintained. The bathroom was immense and the bed very comfortable.
There was a great Irish band playing in the bar and we enjoyed that as well.
I highly recommend this hotel and look forward to staying there again.

We were there only for an afternoon drink. The atmosphere was great, the west-facing terrace shaded, and the lemonade fresh. Service was inside only but friendly, as were some local patrons. The outdoor no-smoking signs were accompanied by ashtrays which were being used.

Centrally located is good; no hotel parking is not good; ambiance is good, rooms are smallish with few amenities, room views are good, did not try their restaurant, staff is just ok, it is historic and this aspect has to be important to you to make this worth while.

we stopped here for a drink twice, the bar staff were not very friendly on either occasion, the bar was left full of dirty glasses while the bar tender chatted with her friend.... Not a good impression.

A good place to while away the afternoon with a pitcher of margaritas or a bottle of chilled wine.
Relax and watch the town go by.

Be very careful when providing them a credit card in the bar. I gave "Mr. Personality" my credit card to secure my tab telling him I would pay cash at close. When closing out he gave me the tab and I gave him a very nice tip. And then I found a few days later that he billed my card!!
Inquiries with the hotel have gone unanswered. Never expected that from a cool town like that but there are thieves everywhere!
