Does anyone know what the official hotel was for 2001 Worlds in Vancouver? Thanks!
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.
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.
hotel vancouver is now called the fairmont ( there are two one downtown and one at the airport )
I was wrong (well, I had the "big chain" part correct. Per this blast from the past, the hotel was the Hyatt Regency.
I'll never forget it. My first FS competition and I had miso soup with the Satos.
Please share the story.
Yes, please share. You can't drop that tidbit and leave us hanging.
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.
