The charming Thomas Bond House bed-and-breakfast is in the heart of Independence National Historical Park , adjacent to Welcome Park  where William Penn’s home once stood. It has 12 guest rooms, including two large suites with working fireplaces and whirlpool tubs.
Built in 1769, the Georgian-style home was named for its first owner, Thomas Bond, acclaimed surgeon and friend of Ben Franklin, who was a regular guest at the home. With period furnishings and personal touches including books, games, complimentary sherry, and fresh-baked cookies, a stay here feels like visiting the home of a colonial-era friend.
Rooms start at $115, with the largest suites up to $190. Continental breakfast is served on weekdays and a full breakfast is included on weekends. Complimentary wine and cheese is offered, and all the restaurants of Old City are steps away, including the historic City Tavern  across the street.
