A Connecticut couple will mark their 60th wedding anniversary at the luxury 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 March 2, 1952 hotel bill.     

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

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

The former New Yorkers met on a blind date in 1950. Their wedding reception was on Manhattan's Upper West Side.     

Joan Schwartz told the Daily News that it cost $4.75 a head for a catered steak dinner and ice sculpture decorations.
