If it were not for the lumpy mattress that sorely needs to be replaced and the frustrating air flow of the air conditioner, I would have given the Copper Queen five stars. We have stayed here several times over the past 30 years and have always found the staff to be helpful and accommodating. This particular room was large, compared...

We had the most amazing time at the Copper Queen Hotel this past weekend. The hotel owners and their staff made our 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration perfect. The food was exceptional. The hospitality was fantastic. Everyone should put the Copper Queen experience on their "bucket" list.

Wonderful time at the historic Copper Queen. Take time to sit on the porch, on 3rd floor, until 9 pm, overlooking the old 1905 Main Street. If with friends, take a bottle of wine and put out in the 2nd floor living room; enjoy it on the nearby 3rd floor balcony. Also, take a swim suit; a lovely pool in...

Making the reservation was EASY. I do like that. The hotel was clean and the food at the restaurant was delicious. I did miss not having an ice machine and drink machine. The A/C was noisy but I expect that from a window unit. It was so close to everything. We did eat dinner and breakfast at the hotel. One...

We revisited the Copper Queen in late March 2013. Check in was simple and fast. Free parking was just down the road, a short distance. Room was small, but efficient and nicely appointed. The bathroom was large with a claw foot tub with a wrap around shower curtain. The hotel restaurant offered delicious choices for breakfast and supper. Wait staff...

Making the reservation was easy. People were nice. Bar was a little pricy. Food in the restaurant was good and not too pricy. Close to local attractions. Room was OK, clean but a little worn. Kind of expected from a building dating way back. Air conditioner was noisy. Nice change of pace, pretty close to a lot of things.

We had dinner at the restaurant in the hotel. Bread, salad and dinner was very good. Waiter was very helpful and friendly. Restaurant could probably use a good vacuuming and dusting, otherwise it's charming and casual. The bread pudding with a crumb topping and raspberry coulis is the best I've ever had! Only wish they would share the recipe!!!

We recently stayed at this hotel while on a short vacation to the area. What a wonderful old hotel! Beautifully furnished, We absolutely loved it. The front desk staff was warm and welcoming.

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
