With a chain hotel you should know what you're getting, and this Holiday Inn delivers a good standard business hotel. Rooms are a good size, with a desk and two lounge chairs. Room safe, iron and ironing board, refrigerator, tea and coffee making. Good wifi in rooms. Friendly and efficient service on the front desk (though don't try phoning in the evening, as the sole person on duty may be busy and unable to answer).
Breakfast is provided by an independently-run operator. It is pretty comprehensive, but the breakfast room isn't a nice place to be in the morning as it is next to their industrial kitchen and they leave the connecting door open so you can hear all the crashing plates and noisy dishwashers. The staff are noisy as they go around the breakfast room picking up crockery and cutlery.
The hotel is out of town but on two tram routes, and a short walk from a station and bus routes, so is a reasonable base for exploring Helsinki. Its main purpose, though, is accommodation for the adjacent congress centre.
