Since I was awarded MVP in 2001 by Microsoft, I have been to Seattle almost every year, so I'm starting to know the place. When it's the MVP summit, MS foots the hotel bill, and they lodge you in the finest hotels Seattle can offer. This time I was at the Westin, which are easily spotted with its round towers. From my room on the 20th floor, I had a view over this crossing.
