Notes & Transcripts

When Charles and Frances Hamlin celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary, they decided to see if they could recreate everything, including the $8 price. The Hamlins still had the original receipt from the Poinsett from 1947. Today, a room in the hotel costs between $250 and $300, although Hamlin said he thought $8 was expensive 68 years ago. At first, the hotel balked at giving the couple a room for $8, but reconsidered when they learned that they had their original receipt. John Geddes, director of sales and marketing at the Westin Poinsett they have helped couples replicate their experience at the hotel and decide to help the Hamlins. Geddes said it was unusual for the couple to have their original receipt, so they thought it would be a fun thing to do. “It’s very neat,“ Geddes said. “It was kind of a no-brainer for us to recreate the magical night.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
