Mannerheimintie is a major Helsinki artery with excelent tramway service. I visited in winter and arrived too late for the city tour; two hours of tramway fixed this. Two monster hotels sit side by side in Mannerheimintie: the Crowne Plaza and the
Scandic. I stayed in the Crowne Plaza, wich has an imponent view, an entire (free for guests) floor with gym, pool, sauna, health shop, etc. The room had everything in it: a safe, minibar, wireless internet, a robe (for the sauna), toiletries, stationery, pens, etc. Buffet breakfast was impressive and you can order your fried eggs to the cook with no extra charge. I made dozens of inqiries to the staff (in winter, after six in the afternoon, it's all dark and very cold, so you shelter in the hotel). They were very helpful and polite. I usually like better smaller hotels, but wouldn't mind to go back to this one again.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
I love round-the-corner 7-11 type stores for sandwiches, coca-colas, chewing gum, shaving gel, antacids, and the like. Just ask the staff.
While visiting Helsinki for a weekend visit you should spend a morning on Suomenlinna Island and Fortress. It is a UNESCO heritage site worthy of spending a morning. There are public and private ferries that go to the island from the Market
Square. Also, if you have a car, visit Porvoo, it is one of the oldest towns in Finland, and another UNESCO heritage site. Porvoo is about 35 minutes by car outside of Helsinki. On the long Summer nights, spend an evening after the sun goes down at the Grand Casino Helsinki - the poker is pretty good.
The hotel I stayed at was a little bit out of the center of the city, but it was only about a 20 minute walk to the Market Square in Helsinki and about 10 minutes to the Helsinki train station.
