1st off they know how to throw a great party, but it was a little to big for the venue. I do have to say the staff was great but during the party the bartenders inside were swamped. With three bartenders only two knew what they were doing was the female bartender and the male with the piercings and glasses...

This hotel was a serious disappointment. the photos and write-up, together with the tariff asked, gives the impression of a pleasant, settled, charming older hotel. Far from the truth. The room was clean but well-worn and in despeerate need of refurbishment, the air-conditioner was from the ark and excessively noisy. The reception was dim, and the staff less than helpful....

My boyfriend and I just completed a 2 1/2 week road trip across the Southwest, and while a couple of our hotels were pre-booked, several were made on the spur of the moment as we pulled into town.

Over the past several years we have visited Bisbee and Copper Queen at least once a year for a quick get away. Our last stay at the Copper Queen , which was October 2013 will probably be our last for awhile. The hotel is over priced, $200.00 for a double queen room which is basically four walls and a poor...

Stayed here for our anniversary, ordered the romance package. Would not recommend this, as it was far from romantic! We got a bottle of Asti, not the champagne promised, the meal and service in the restaurant was not up to par. Steak was overcooked, fries heavily salted. The manager offered to rectify, but the meal was spoiled, as noone had...

We have stayed at the Copper Queen four times over the past few years. I would have to say, although the historical charm is amazing, the service and rooms have steadily deteriorated. We prefer to stay in older hotels with character and are not looking for new facilities so we understand and accept the quirks. From the time you walk...

Bisbee today is a bit of a nostalgic remnant of its former glory as a western boomtown and mining center. Back in its day, this town bustled and I bet it was dusty and loud. As a tourist you cannot go back! But I do recommend a stay here at the CQ. It offers an interesting stay. I have fond...

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
