I don't like reviewing Incentra because I want to keep the secret in case friends of mine need a place to stay. Each room has its own decor--all of it charming--many of the rooms have kitchenettes, fully equipped, and one has the garden attached, where you can sit and have breakfast before tackling New York. It's just the greatest neighborhood, I think in the world, and the Incentra is so reasonable, charming and comfortable--I seriously don't like broadcasting it, but maybe they need it now.
I’m privileged to stay at the Incentra on a regular basis, several times a year, and I really do call it my home from home when I’m in New York City. I was looking for a replacement for my previous favourite hotel, Chelsea Pines Inn, however sadly since the hotel was taken over by new management standards dropped. Incentra was a natural fit. It does not feel like a hotel, each room feels like a self contained apartment with kitchen, bathroom and generous size bedroom. I make a habit of staying in the Stable Room, it’s on a lower floor and is street facing but the windows blanket any noise and I like to watch the world go by outside. The bed is one of the most comfortable. It’s large and includes quality sheets, blanket and pillows. On demand hot water results in a great shower. Generous towels and toiletries included. The location is in the West Village. The High Line and Meatpacking District is within 5 minutes walk. 14th / 8th Avenue Subway station servicing A, C, E and L trains is, less than 5 minutes walk and there is a bus stop right outside the front door. There is a restaurant serving great breakfasts right next door. In fact 11 second walk from front door to front door, sad that I timed it. Vincent, the weekend Manager is awesome and ensures that I always have a great stay. Reception and cleaning staff are equally brilliant. For me, this is my favourite place to base myself when I’m in New York City and whether you’re solo or a couple, like me, am sure you too will call Incentra VIllage Hotel your home from home. …
My husband and I stayed in the Bishop suite and it was fantastic. We were there 9 nights and having the little kitchenette to make snacks, tea and coffee etc was fabulous and having the living room with sofa, coffee table and TV to relax in was a godsend after long days of sightseeing. The location is brilliant, super close to the subway and lots of wonderful restaurants and bars. The staff, Vincent, Netta, Tyra and Xavier, were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful and kind. I would definitely recommend the Incentra Village and if you there for more than a couple of nights, I'd definitely try and book the Bishop suite.
From Vincent meeting us way past our original check in time to help us in, to the car service arranged to pick us up for the airport very early, we were very pleased with the service we received while staying in the Washington Suite in January. Great room, great location, great value. Can't recommend Incentra enough!
I loved this hotel. The room had a lot of character and was very charming. Very clean, very friendly staff. We had a small kitchen area with a sink and a few plates. The hotel is a great location, just about 5 minutes walk to Chelsea Market and just over 10 minutes from the Washington Square Park area. There were two subway lines very close to the hotel. I found it a wonderful area to navigate NYC from. I will gladly stay here again.
