It looks very much like a Sanseveria, rattle snake plant, mother-in-law's tongue. I am not sure which species however.

I agree, it sure looks to be one of the lower growing, wide leaf types of Sansevieria:

Sansevieria (Sansevieria kirkii var. pulchra)
Snake Plant (Sansevieria masoniana)
Bird's Nest Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata 'Hahnii')
