I don't know much about Bromeliads but it reminds me of Billbergia. Check out some of the photos in our database for comparison: http://garden.org/plants/browse/plants/genus/Billbergia/

The bloom doesn't look right to me for Flaming Torch (Billbergia pyramidalis)

One of the bloom photos at that location in the database appears incorrect for B. pyramidalis.
