Yeah, no, there were children aboard.
The tour ended pretty soon after that, and I even got a quack-er to go. It was awesome. XD
Since the drop off was right across the street from the Liberty Bell, I decided to go see that first. As I was walking, I almost passed by ...

Running 3 blocks between, Race St through Walnut is Independence National Historical Park, which is lovely on a warm day. There are wall flat screened TV’s playing videos’ of events through the fight for independence, and timelines explaining this. Toward the middle is the Liberty bell centre, of course this houses the Liberty Bell. The queue was huge to get ...

As we made our way towards Philadelphia’s City Hall we came across our next sculpture, a 45-foot steel clothespin which apparently looks like two lovers entwining. I could just see a giant clothes peg but it was impressive nonetheless. We found a real gem for lunch tucked away down a side street and enjoyed the famous Philadelphia cheesesteak sandwich. Tom and Steve also ordered an Ale taster each ...

It was so fun chatting, just the 3 of us talking about America and Australia! The serving sizes were really big but it all tasted great! After that Danny went to the local mall and Cheyenne and I hung out for a bit doing some shooting together. Then we all went out to lunch and had the famous Philly Cheese Steaks for lunch! They were huge! ...
Saturday, August 20th
We drove in to Philadelphia without much traffic and got there in good time. We parked on Jenny and Bryant's street and headed in to their house with Nash and some of our other stuff. Then we walked over to Mike and Andi’s house for the party. A bunch of our friends were there and we had a good time catching up with everyone and playing beer pong. We ended ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Thomas Bond House Bed & Breakfast Philadelphia
Great, inexpensive option
We had a great stay at the Thomas Bond House. The staff is very helpful and rooms are very clean. In a location that is within walking distance to most attractions. Lots of restaurants and bars near the hotel. The location of the hotel could be a deterrent for older adults because of the close proximity to bars. We stayed at the hotel on a Saturday and Sunday night. Saturday night the neighborhood was extremely loud. Sunday the neighborhood was quiet. Overall, I would stay at the Thomas Bond House again.
Truly Enjoyed Our Stay Here
We had a great room, the house is convenient to everything in Philly, a lot in walking distance. No trouble parking all weekend. The breakfast was great, we had our own table, but we could join others if we wanted to be sociable. Enjoyed the main room for a drink in the evening and played checkers while waiting on some friends. I don't recall any road noise issues, but my boyfriend snores really loud, so.... ;o)
Just returned from a weekend in Philly. I read all the other review and could see all the points they made. Overall I liked the Thomas Bond House and would stay there again. When you consider location and history it is a great deal.
Great Deal for the money!
For the rate per night that this B&B charges, I feel you will not find a better deal in all of downtown Philadelphia. I travel to Philadelphia on business every week and have stayed at all the small properties. This location and property is by far the best deal in town.
I stayed here 3 nights in early January with my sister. Fortunately, we enjoyed each other's company and that of some other guests enough to offset the "problem areas". There was one night with what sounded like a party in the street outside our window, but it is the city.
Total waist of money and time!
I booked this with the idea of spending a romantice weekend with my husband for our 10 anniv. We never saw the staff, not even the "inn keeper". The evening treat was a total joke! They left warm wine and cheese out on the table...in a room that was not very accesable. The room was ok at best. Everything needed to be up-graded. the faucet was even worn to the point that the fake brass was coming off. Not very romantic at all! OK if you are just looking for a place to sleep and put you stuff, but any hotel can do that. I expect more from a Bed and Breakfast! I expect more for the price per night!
If you like staying up until 2:30 a.m. - this is the place for you!! The noise from the street is horrendous! Screaming twentysomethings, honking horns, car alarms - all kept me from sleeping until the bars down the street closed at 2:00 a.m. Maybe it's like this only on the weekend??? Loved the location within walking distance of the historic area, but there is absolutely no soundproofing from the outside world. Small room was ok, but I was killing bugs in the bathroom at 2:00 a.m. Later found out my husband killed one too! Breakfast for 2 days consisted of the same fruit salad, an egg souffle, a meat and crosissant. Can't imagine the back of the building would be any quieter since you have a view of the parking deck. Will try the Best Western or Sheraton Society Hill next time. I love historic inns, but this is the worst experience we've ever encountered in one.
Fool Me Once
Tight quarters, too expensive, but worst of all staff with an attitude. I don't need that when I am traveling. You got me once but not again.
Best place in Philadelphia to immerse yourself in the history of the City.
As a history teacher, I was looking for 5 quiet days to spend in historic Philadelphia. With camera and map in hand, I found everything and more that I came for.
What an added treat to come back to the Thomas Bond House each night to complete the 18th century experience. The inn keepers were cordial and extremely accommodating. Next time I will bring my husband or stay on a lower floor-as lugging my heavy suitcase to the top of the house was not pleasant. But once I was there, what a grand view. I never turned on the television. With a good book and a view of City Tavern and the Delaware River under my window, I was completely at home and at peace.
My husband and I stay often here. We just love the Thomas Bond. Clean, small rooms with lots of charm. Fantastic location, right in the old city. Parking garage right next door for like 15.00 bucks. Great deal. We love breakfast in a cafe like setting with individual tables. I love to socialize, but not in the morning!! Very safe with key system. Not dead quiet at night with the busy street, but your in the city!!! We highly recommend it.
