Comfy bed, loved the claw tub. Needs a little updating . Very clean and the restaurant was closed , disappointed as I heard great things about it. 4 locks on door, I found funny, NO ghosts visited us on the 4th floor.

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 sat down to discuss what our touring plans would be and the drawer opened, my niece and I laughed but my sister...

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...

Congratulations on the purchase of the hotel in the first of the 2017 year. I'm delighted you are remodeling the restaurant. But, voiding any food options in the saloon serves no purpose. I stayed in the 'annex' building, the store in the front was closed. Have you considered setting up a BBQ grill, simple burgers, salads, chips, and so forth?...

Good Evening. I would first like to thank you for your review about The Copper Queen Hotel. Unfortunately with our kitchen being renovated at this time is why we have no food services in the bar, we have thought to do different options about food but with the licence that restaurant obtain you need a kitchen to operate any food...

Lovely old hotel that is supposed to be haunted. Upon check in I asked "we aren't over the bar are we?" No was the answer, he lied. The bed was like a hammock, sagged horribly in the middle. That is the one thing you can't forgive, the paint could be peeling (and it was) and you wouldn't care. But if...

We stayed on the fourth floor, in the beautiful, peaceful "Lily Langtry" room. Great old hotel! They have coffee and muffins in the morning. The front desk staff were helpful, but not very friendly or welcoming.

Booked two nights. Stayed one. Dirty carpets. Dirty claw footed tub. (Maid said she was not allowed to use strong cleansers). Flat bottom sheet did not fit bed. In fairness, under new management. They are slowly doing rooms. Saw a refurbished room which was acceptable. I was looking forward to staying here, as I am a history teacher. If you...

The desk clerks have no understanding of customer service. The swimming pool was too dirty to swim in. The posted signs say to shower before swimming but there is not shower in the pool area to use. The toilet paper was of lesser quality than one would find in a public park. The bartenders could not be bothered to come...

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
