When we arrived in Philadelphia my husband was not feeling well. Chrissy, innkeeper for the Thomas Bond house, quickly found us an urgent care near by. LONG story short, my husband ended up in Jefferson hospital for a week. Our original stay had us at the Bond house for four days, they were able to accommodate us for an additional... More

The staff was amazingly friendly and anticipated many of our questions and needs. The location was exceptional and within walking distance of everything we wanted to do.

We enjoyed our stay at the Thomas Bond House B&B. The room was small but very clean and had all the amenities that you would need. The hot breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. The B&B is located in the Old City within walking distance of Independence National HistoricPark.

The Thomas Bond House was very nice. Everyone was friendly. The only thing I was bummed about is that they don't serve hot breakfast during the week. I guess I missed that info when I checked it out. But isn't Breakfast the point of calling it a B&B?

Hands down Thomas Bond House is one of the best B&Bs I've ever visited! Terrific location--located in the Old historic district, just a few blocks from independence national historic park, close to many of the best restaurants! Easy walking distance to everything historic! But the perks here are beyond approach. First of all, the innkeeper Chrissy is fantastic! She is... More

We were greeted at the door by Chrissy, the friendly, welcoming house manager who offered lots of advice about what to do in the city as well as offering her assistance whenever we needed.

The very best experience. Not only is the B&B perfect located in the old town with small shops and cafes and restaurants, but it has withholded some of it's historic patena. The rooms are clean and nicely done with individualized features. The staff is so helpful and friendly.:-)

The Thomas Bond House was everything we expected and more. Chrissy, the innkeeper, and her assistant, Brita, couldn't have been more welcome. The home is lovely and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful.

Thomas Bond House is an historic alternative to impersonal lodging. Step into the 18th century in this exquisitely restored circa 1769 gem. Located within the Independence National Historic Park in Philadelphia, PA, you are just steps away from all the historic landmarks, world class restaurants and shopping. ... more   less
