A Valentine’s Day Story that Celebrates 60 Years of Matrimony
I’m a sucker for Valentine’s Day. This particular holiday brings about so many opportunities for Hyatt hotels to assist in weddings, engagement proposals, and celebrations of love around the world. In our business, we’re lucky enough to be able to help create memorable moments all year long. This Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share one of my all-time favorites.
Newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. David Wagner spent their wedding night on October 19, 1952 at the former Hotel Commodore, now Grand Hyatt New York. Sixty years ago, the couple paid a rate of $10.50 for their room.
Looking to commemorate their 60th wedding anniversary, the Wagners wanted to come back to where it all started. When the team at Grand Hyatt New York heard about their history with Hotel Commodore and the special memories from 60 years ago, they were all too delighted to help the happy couple recreate their wedding night… down to the $10.50 room rate.
The hotel was thrilled to have the still incredibly happy couple back on this special occasion, and this letter David and Florence wrote about their stay reminds us just how lucky we are to do our jobs.
It warms our hearts to be a part of stories like these!
