The hotel itself is grand in all it's historic spendor. It's certainly worth taking a visit to, even if you do not stay there. My beloved travel partner and I have a love for staying in historic buildings, in cities and towns that actually have quite eventful pasts. Bisbee Arizona has just that, as it was once a thriving mining...

What a great place to spend New Years 2013 ! The hotel staff were absolutely wonderful and worked with us to get a great room. Even though we didn't experience any ghosts at the hotel, it was still an enjoyable experience just staying at such an old and historic hotel.

We had a great evening last Thursday on the Ghost Tour with Jennifer and Renee.

We went to Bisbee for the Lavender and Lace Ball. We stayed at the Copper Queen that exudes charm from days gone by. The staff was courteous and the room as you would expect, small but very adequate. The private bath is a step up from the 1800's as well I'm sure. Be ready to step back in time and...

I have stayed at the Copper Queen at least six times over the years, always asking for a different room, as none are the same. Each room is authentically furnished in late 18th/early 19th century motifs, and each I have slept in is filled with tons of charm and personality. Here are the ups and downs of the hotel, from...

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
