The inspiration for The Tombstone Grand Hotel comes from the original Grand Hotel which in its prime housed some of Tombstone's most famous residents including Wyatt and Virgil Earp, Doc Holliday, and the Clanton Gang. Unfortunately, the Grand did not survive the devastating fire in May of 1882 and was rebuilt as Big Nose Kate’s Saloon.When the Grand Hotel first opened its doors in September of 1880, it was declared one of the finest hotels in the state complete with luxurious furnishings, beautiful art and affable staff. As we set out to create a unique boutique experience in the legendary town of Tombstone we looked to preserve some of the elements that made the Grand Hotel so special. We too pride ourselves in the quality of our establishment and our dedicated staff. Our commitment to the comfort and happiness of our guests manifests itself as White Hat Service.
Some of the best birding in the United States happens here in Cochise County. Approximately 400 species of birds can be found in the area year round with an additional 250 species that use the San Pedro River during migration in the spring and fall.
Sitting a top The Tombstone Grand Hotel logo is a cactus wren, the state bird of Arizona and resident trouble maker. The Cactus Wren’s gregarious personality and distinct features make it fairly easy to spot. Be on the lookout for a vocal bird with a brown head, white eye stripe and spotted tail feathers.
Cactus Wrens are also notorious for getting into mischief. Being curious birds, it is not uncommon for them to be found flying about in automobiles where the owner has left a window open.
