When it comes to hosting houseguests we keep it simple: a stack of fresh towels at the end of the bed, some posh hotel slippers and a secret stash of shortbread for late-night munchies.
On the bedside table is the quintessential "little black book", (although it’s lavender) that beelines our stylish Toronto guests to the city’s gems. As with all Hg2 travel books, the Toronto edition is packed full of flashy pics, insider tips and suggestions on where to eat, drink and play.
All the usual suspects made the cut—Drake, Splendido, Courage My Love—with a few off radar picks like Swan’s End Guest House and Camp 4.
Your guests will be having so much fun that they won’t want to leave, at which point you confiscate the shortbread. —Athena Tsavliris
