The Thomas Bond House in the historic section of Philadelphia is a good bargain. It is located within two blocks of all major historic venues and good restaurants. Parking is available next door for a fee. We arrived for a two day visit and never had to use the car.
This B&B looks like an historic Inn, has good service, a delicious breakfast and a restful sitting area. Wine and cheese were available to ease the fatigue of all day sightseeing. The Chocolate chip cookies helped to make my dreams come true. The décor is appropriate for the period and it takes little imagination to recreate the constitutional debates of our forefathers.
Room 302 is small as advertised and I would recommend a larger room next time. The bed was adequate but too soft for my comfort. Problems with the TV remote were annoying but tolerable.
