Splendid Arthur Erickson design. Current Hotel operator just shut down, rumor is that Four Seasons Hotels may be interested in assuming the existing lease.

Very interesting design! Looks like a place you could study light patterns at different times of day based on #1. #2 is intriguing.............

Intriguing.
Yes, one can shoot the same building in different weather conditions and get a thousand totally different takes. Cloudy (even light) being my personal favorite.

The shadow on the building in the first image so nicely complements the shape of the building. I wonder if the architect knew that would happen.
Good architects will always design a building that takes full advantage of it's location. The "twist" allows for the maximum amount of balconies to be looking North towards the water and mountains. The lower part of the building is Hotel, the upper part is condos.

Yes, great looking building, once I move back downtown I will feast on lots of great architecture.
