A Bromeliad perhaps?

This may be the stake that went w/ the plant -

It may start w/ Aech
Thumb of 2015-12-13/jmorth/3fecc5

Like I said, I'm not sure this stake went w/ the plant seeking identification as there was another stake I was going to take a pic of, but, alas it fell through one of the cracks pictured above.

Both suggestions look a lot like it. It's in maybe a 10" pot, it's a real sight stealer.

The label says Aechmea recurvata, that's not your plant.

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=aechmea+recurvata&biw=1440...

Neoregelia 'Blushing Tiger' has shorter leaves than your plant has, there is a lot of these plants which look similar.

So, you think it's more likely Vriesea splendens?
And again I compliment your well deserved moniker 'Janet Super Sleuth', your powers of discovery rival Sherlock.

I do think it's more likely Vriesea splendens, or a selection of it. A flower spathe would help, take "more likely" as the clue.

I shoulda been a detective. Or so the CID indicated when I helped get a car thief arrested. Rolling on the floor laughing
