My partner and I stayed at the Crowne plaza as part of the Fjord Norway, Stockholm & Helsinki tour arranged through Authentic Scandinavia.
Pros: Reasonably sized room with a good bathroom (compact) bath, plenty of storage, and "standard" amenities including iron and ironing board, safe, tea and coffee and biscuits/sweet supplied every day. Comfortable bed. Ventilation was good and the temperature easily adjustable, plus windows could be opened. Breakfast was excellent and included hot items and food cooked to order. Our room overlooked Toolonlahti "lake" and the city, which was lovely. The room was always kept clean. Service was a little abrupt sometimes, but always polite. Bag storage was available and used. A taxi was almost always available outside the hotel entrance.
Cons: not really any. The hotel is a little out of the centre, but a 10 minute walk takes you there, and transport is plentiful on the road outside. Some of the decoration looked a little tired (largely in the corridors), but our room was fine. Limited English channels - but there are some available (largely news) and Finnish channels do show films in English and some UK/US series (this seems to be standard across most of Scandnavia).
