What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

That the hotel was built in 1921. Then, went bankrupt in 1944. Foreign Investors renovated it. In 1990 Hotel Sask franchised Raddison's name and it officially became Raddison Plaza Hotel Saskatchewan.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Don't judge the hotel by its outside because the outside looks old and classic. The inside is fancy and elegant. The hotel is really vintage with a bit of modern.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Then (1944) Hotel Sask went bankrupt. Now a days the hotel is so successful it would be rare to go bankrupt. Then (1927) CPR was using scraps to make the hotel. Now a days there are construction people who could probably do it for them.
