The swag series: Hazelton Hotel takes care of its celebrity guests with, um, everything
What it is: Every guest who stays in one of the Hazelton Hotel’s 77 rooms and suites during TIFF (and visiting celebs renting out the residences) gets one of these bags for themselves. Think of it as an offset to the pricey rooms, which are upwards of $1,000 a night. If it’s good enough for Oprah, well, surely a pleb like George Clooney might deign to be seen here. Find out who goes there and what they get after the jump.
Who goes: The Hazelton is, unsurprisingly, mum on their guest list, but last year stars of The Town—Jon Hamm, Ben Affleck and Blake Lively—stayed here. Affleck was seen in the gym working out in his Bay-issued sneakers and tee.
What they get: Hydration is a TIFF must, so A-listers are getting access to it in all forms, from a bottle of Perrier Jouët and David’s Tea for brunch to Vitamin Water and SmartWater to ease next-day headaches. During TIFF, American Crew and Elie Saab will be outfitting the Hazelton washrooms with their products for both guys and ladies, and guests take home an enormous assortment of their wares (seriously, it looks as though they’ll be receiving every product these brands have in their repertoires). Canadiana is on offer from The Bay, with signature merchandise like blankets and tees, and Roots is offering a red-and-black tote exclusive to the Hazelton and TIFF (there are less than 150 and they aren’t available in stores). And though we expect anyone who can afford to stay here wouldn’t be caught dead steaming their own garments, Rowenta has provided a travel steamer to get rid of any creases before those red-carpet premieres.
Total worth: A lot o’ money.
