The location, style, and irrefutable class of this wonderful place put it into a class of establishment all its own. If you want a long weekend in Philly with no worries and all your needs covered, try out Thomas Bond. From complimentary wine every evening to fresh cookies at night, on to an exclusive location convenient to walking the historical... More

Stayed at Thomas Bond House instead of the conference hotel for an academic conference. The conference was at the Sheraton Society Hill, only a block away. But the Thomas Bond House was so much more affordable. Add to that the fact that there is continental plus breakfast during the week and hot breakfast on the weekends, and it's hands-down a... More

My teen and I stayed at the Thomas Bond House during a Spring Break trip to Philadelphia. After touring the historic sites, we enjoyed sleeping in an historic building and learning about Dr. Bond and his role in founding the first Pennsylvania Hospital. This B&B is conveniently located a few blocks from Independence Hall, making it easy to site see... More

I recently had a business conference and decided to stay here instead of the conference hotel in Penn's Landing. I definitely made the right choice! The house is meticulously kept and is located squarely within the Old City. Everything is within walking distance, including the attractions, very cool restaurants, bars, waterfront, etc. My room was very comfortable and relatively quiet... More

Indeed, one of the best B and B that we've stayed in. We were a big group, six couples altogether. We had a blast this past weekend. Thanks to Anthony, very accommodating, helpful host. Lovely breakfast. Great location, in the middle of rows and rows of restaurants and Bars. Thank you, Anthony.

I came off of a red-eye flight to Philly for a funeral the next day and the proprietor, Anthony, assured me the quietest room, greeted me at an ungodly hour and ushered me up the staircase carrying my bags. He continued to be solicitous and very helpful. At breakfast, which was ample--eggs, sausage, potatoes, fruit, assorted breads, juices, coffee--he gave... More
