Huh-- LUGNET, Classic-Castle, and Peeron say that Vladek's Dark Fortress had 967 pieces, but BrickSet says 983. King's Castle Siege reportedly had 973 pieces, which would make it "bigger" in terms of pieces, if 8877 indeed has the lower piece count. But at that point, it's probably time to start debating what counts as a "piece"
Tallest is (as stated) probably 6097, Night Lord's Castle from 1997. There were a couple different configurations, but one of them put the already-very-tall tower on TOP of some of the rest of the structure, resulting in a really over-the-top height.
Length and width, I'm not sure about-- might depend on the configuration as well. I'll bet Vladek's Dark Fortress is the winner for the width, but I haven't really done any in-depth checking.
Favorite? Probably either 6080 (I love the aesthetic of a simple, imposing, European castle) or 6086 (the best overall layout IMHO). It's hard to pick.
