The Copper Queen has the best location in old town Bisbee. All of the hotels date back to an earlier era that ended over 40 years ago with the mine closing. Our room was clean and had lots of room. Muffins are served for breakfast. The TV was an old time non-flat screen unit. The ice machine is on the... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Copper Queen several times. When we decided to get married, we chose the second floor lobby of the Copper Queen Hotel. The staff was wonderful and helped to coordinate everything from getting our marriage license to providing two witnesses for the ceremony. We stayed in the John Wayne room and loved the... More

Stayed there one night cause my sister wanted to stay in a haunted hotel. The room was nice and takes you back in time. The bathtub was an old fashion stand alone tub. We liked the view from the outside balcony. The hotel was in walking distance to downtown shops and the mine museum across the street. The parking was... More

We went down there to celebrate my husbands birthday. It was over Halloween weekend with 3 other married couples ranging in ages from early 30's to early 40's. The rooms are very nice. Not modern but very nice. Fits perfectly for the town of Bisbee. 2 couples had the 504 & 505 rooms located in the courtyard. They were perfect!... More

After eating lunch at the Copper Queen, we wanted to take pictures of the inside of the hotel. The clerk was not nice. I felt like a child being yelled at. She needs an attitude adjustment! I asked her if we could look at a room because we wanted to stay there in the future but she just rolled her... More

We chose this hotel because it is historical. The building itself is very historical, but our room was over the bar and they had a live band that played until midnight and a loud jukebox played until after 1:30 am. We had not been informed at any time prior to entering the room that the band might be an issue.... More

This hotel is very old and it has retained the ambiance that makes it a fun experience. The rooms are a little small, but the bed was one of the most comfortable we have found. The dining room is a treat and the food is excellent.

We stayed here in late October just after Helldorado. The town is awesome and the copper queen was great! We never ended up eating in the restaurant but we did hit a few of the bars in town and of course at the hotel itself. Eddie the bartender was great very nice guy. The room was perfect for us and...

Its very close to everything...walk to everywhere. Hotel is older which makes it a cool place to stay. Floors make noise when you walk on them and stairs are squishy, but I wouldn't take the elevator.

This review is not for the hotel but for the restaurant. We rode out to Bisbee specifically to see the Copper Queen and have lunch there. Upon our arrival we noticed the restaurant wasn't yet open, this was around 10 30 am, we thought they may serve breakfast, guess they don't. We walked around town for awhile and returned around...

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
