    I'm leaning towards the Westin, but I'm not 100% sure. I know it was a major chain. My other guess would be Sheraton. I looked for my souvenir keycard, but can't find it.

    Hotel Vancouver.
    At least that what it was called in 2001. I can't find it on google now.
    It was the one with the green/copper roof.

    I was wrong (well, I had the "big chain" part correct. Per this blast from the past, the hotel was the Hyatt Regency.

    Oh, its really not that much.
    One morning we went to breakfast there. I got up to fill my plate at the buffet and literally ran into Frank. I was embarrassed. Then I ended up in line with the Satos and we all dished out our miso soup together.
    Since then I have had more interesting encounters with skaters/coaches/families. This was just my first. In 2001, I was a FS competition virgin.
