I came and stayed here over 20 times on business over the last 5 years -- so much so that the staff recognized me. And even though I had received a Club Carlson Gold Card for my frequent stays at this and other Radissons, this hotel would refuse to upgrade my room (a privilege given by the gold card). This was the only Radisson which refused the upgrade -- while the other ones in Helsinki, Stockholm, Tallinn and elsewhere would do it.
Other than that, the hotel is a pretty bog standard Radisson. The rooms are fine, the breakfasts are very good. The location is convenient, next to the train station and about 5 minutes' walk to Pohjolaesplenade. My only other complaint would be that the line to checkout in the morning can get a big long, so if you are traveling on business and have meetings to get to, you should try to get down to the lobby about 10-15 minutes early to do the checkout to make sure you don't get held up.
