I checked into the Hilton Strand Helsinki in Jan13 with my wife. We usually stay with Hilton and are used to their standards.
The hotel is well located and the rooms spacious. However the hotel is very tired, a real 80s time warp, with lots of gold, and peach and apricot colours. The hotel is well overdue for a refresh, although it was comfortable and everything worked.
The Executive lounge was a bit disappointing. The lounge is not manned all day (unlike many others I have used). As a result coffee cups etc pile up during the day. In the evening the lounge is staffed, but dirty plate/cup collection was very slow being there is only 1 staff member. The food choice was also limited, with one hot option only in the evenings and a very limited breakfast selection in the morning, with limited cereal choices, hot food options etc. I say this as a relativity to other Hilton executive lounges I have used recently (berlin, prague, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, and less recently LAX, Omaha, Sydney, etc).
Overall an average hotel that while comfortable, well located and acceptable could do with a renovation and a "spruce up" of its executive lounge.
