NEW YORK, NY. -- A Connecticut couple will mark their 60th wedding anniversary at New York's Waldorf-Astoria for the same price they paid on their honeymoon.

Izzy and Joan Schwartz still have their March 2, 1952 hotel bill.

Today, rooms at the Waldorf start at $319 a night, but the hotel charges the original room rate for returning guests celebrating a milestone.

Izzy and Joan will pay $16.80 per night.

The Waldorf-Astoria says that two to three couples a year take advantage of the deal.

The former New Yorkers met on a blind date in 1950.
