Helsinki is about to witness the launch of its most exciting heritage property yet. Opening on May 2, Hotel St. George (doubles from US$240) will exude Nordic chic throughout its 148 rooms and five suites, set inside a magnificent 19th-century building that once played host to the Finnish Literary Society and then a printing house for Suometar, the first Finnish newspaper.
While the decor in the suites will recall some of that history, two standout features will be the hotelâ€™s contemporary art collection, headlined by an Ai Weiwei dragon sculpture in the lobby, and a lush, art-filled courtyard conservatory called the Winter Garden.
