I originally booked in the Hilton in Helsinki which appeared on paper to have a waterside location, but ended up changing for the Crowne Plaza as this was more convenient for the location of my meeting. The hotel is conveniently located on the edge of the business and downtown area, close to the parliament and various museums, also well accessible to public transport.
The room (junior suite due to free upgrade) was a spacious and light room. It contained a double bed that was very comfortable, which is of critical importance when choosing a hotel. A flat screen television was provided for the seating area but I’m no apparent mechanism to turn it around to watch TV in bed. The bathroom was a good size but without a separate shower cubicle (shower in the bath). A kettle and selection of tea and instant coffees were available, along with a minibar and a complimentary bottle of mineral water.
The hotel was nice, but the breakfast room was overcrowded and the food not to the high quality standard that I have grown to expect from Crowne Plaza. However, on the upside there was a George Clooney Nespresso coffee machine!
