Westin Harbour Castle - Queens Quay

West in Harbour Castle - Harbourfront
Here is a picture from Monday of the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel on the Toronto Waterfront. Growing up for me this building use to be a Hilton. But some time ago, they swapped buildings and the Hilton Moved to Richmond and University and the Westin moved to the Harbour.
This buildings most unique external characteristics include its brutalist concrete exterior and it circular revolving restaurant component. The restaurant use to revolve many years ago, so I was told. But the repair work today would cost to much to justify.
Another unique feature of this building is the absolute hatred most Torontians seem to have for this tower. Tear it down, demolish it, they cry on the internet forums. You just can't win I guess.
