We tried using the Special Guests in the same way as the nobles from Splendor tonight and were surprised at how well it played rather than using the official rules.

We dealt out face-up Guests equal to the number of players plus one (four in our case),and then if a player had the correct cards in their spread at the end of their turn, they could take a guest (but only one per turn, as with Splendor).

It felt more thematic because you were competing with the other players to attract guests first, and it stopped you having to flip over your guest continually because you had forgotten what cards you needed.

It didn't seem to break anything in the game, and our scores were still close, even if we had managed to grab more than one guest.

Has anyone else tried playing like this?
