    Where exactly is all this AirBnB demand coming from? I know that in hot tourist cities like NYC, Rome and Paris they are geared towards backpackers and tourists. Does Toronto have that same cache?

    Airbnb units are much cheaper than hotel rooms (guess why). So it's not only tourist demand, it's all kinds of demand, including business travelers. Toronto isn't Paris but it's not exactly an obscure city either.

    That's true. More and more business travellers are choosing Airbnb's over hotels. They get more space for longer stays and the rooms are lot cheaper than hotels.
