Couple Revisits Site of Honeymoon in Niagara Falls to celebrate 65th Wedding Anniversary
“The Sheraton on the Falls honours 65th Wedding Anniversary by matching room rates from 1945”
Alastair and Helen Mackenzie have celebrated major milestones at the 4-Diamond Sheraton on the Falls in Niagara Falls Ontario, but this trip marks an exceptional accomplishment – their 65th anniversary.
The anniversary celebration is also a return for the couple who first stayed at the fallsview hotel in 1945 on their honeymoon.
A lot has changed in Niagara Falls since that stay. Two Casino’s have been constructed, 3 waterpark’s have been built, and countless hotels and guestrooms have been added to the landscape. Even their hotel has changed, having expanded and joined Starwood Hotels and Resort as the Sheraton on the Falls.
What has remained throughout is the commitment the pair made to each other. The Mackenzie’s, who met while at school in 1938 have returned to the hotel on several occasions including a stay for their 40th anniversary and a family dinner at the Fallsview Restaurant to celebrate their 50th. However to have the soul-mates revisit the exact spot where they honeymooned, the Sheraton on the Falls extended the room rates they paid as newlyweds of $6.00 per night. The couple was also placed in one of the premier fallsview rooms in the hotel.
“It’s not very often we are presented with an opportunity to honour guests in this manner. 65 years of marriage is a gift and a truly special accomplishment” said Don Calaguiro, Senior Vice President-Operations. “Mr. Mackenzie still has the guest receipt from their original stay as a souvenir and it reminds us of the importance our role plays in a guest’s experience”
Located directly across from the Falls, the 4-Diamond Sheraton on the Falls is the premier fallsview hotel in Niagara Falls. Situated on the 20 acre Falls Avenue Resort, the hotel features 670 guestrooms and suites, many offering the best view of the Falls, and first rate amenities including the Fallsview Restaurant, and Christienne Fallsview Spa.
