BLADE STAFF AND NEWS SERVICES

NEW YORK — A Connecticut couple will mark their 60th wedding anniversary at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria for the same $16.80 per night they paid on their honeymoon.

Isidore and Joan Schwartz, of East Lyme, Conn., still have their hotel bill from March 2, 1952.

Today, rooms at the Waldorf start at $319 a night.

The hotel charges the original room rate for returning guests celebrating a milestone. It says two to three couples a year take advantage of the deal.
