Horrible. No wonder AAA does not list in guide. Beds from last century, linens threadbare. Worse, middle of night dirty water poured from ceiling on to us in bed. Nightgown soaked. Called desk, put us in another OLD room. Had to shower, yuk! When checking out thought I should get free room or major adjustment. Offered $15. Good location, but...

Good Afternoon, sorry to hear out the horrible experience you had encounter here at the property. I took it upon myself to refund your credit card $40.00 hopefully that makes up for what had happened. Guest satisfaction is our number one priority. Our hotel is an older one so we do not measure up to the modernization that guest are...

Maybe it was me. I had heard amazing things about the Copper Queen. Visiting the website seemed to confirm the charm and elegance of this old hotel, as well as the elegant room price. Undeterred, on a recent Bisbee excursion my wife and I stayed at the Queen. Our visit was nice, but not all that special. Don't get me...

This was yet another return to the Copper Queen - we had stayed there a number of times over the years. This time, to our chagrin, we found that the dining room had been closed for about two months and may not open soon. Overall, we love the old hotel but wish she would be given some loving care. For...

This hotel is old west charming. You can't help but like it if you enjoy the history in this mining town. The staff are great and the bar is always busy. Bisbee is a great place to buy some local art, go on a tour, relax, or hike. The trip is not complete unless you spend a night at the...

We went here for a short weekend vacation. It was conveniently located in the heart of Old Bisbee. We took our 19 month old daughter and they were very kind with accommodating us. We had amazing hot water and great internet service on the 4th floor. It is a fun look back at what Bisbee was, with some modern conveniences...

My niece was up for a haunted experience so we stayed in Billy's room. Upon entering my sister placed her purse on the table and the alarm clock went off and turned off after a few seconds.

We loved the history, location & service at this hotel! They could do with proper reading lights, and the rooms are small, but exude charm & are tastefully appointed. Particularly when we saw other Bisbee accommodations, we realized that almost certainly The Copper Queen is tops! Their diningroom is being remodeled at this time, but there are plenty of culinary...

We stayed here this last weekend, and I almost cancelled because of all the bad reviews written on here! I'm very glad I didn't! Evidently the management has changed and they are getting everything reorganized, including the bar! The restaurant is currently closed for dining, but no one wrote that it was actually being renovated! (Shame on them for being...

We had booked the Copper Queen looking forward to the "unmatched historic charm and elegance" described on the website, but we were quite disappointed with both the lack of charm and lack of service. The swimming pool was unusable, due to thousands of dead insects floating on the surface and on the bottom. Even if it had been clean, there...

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
