So what are your favorite guides to this historical time period? Favorite books on the subject?

I have two on my TBR - Georgette Heyer's Regency World by Jennifer Kloester

What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew by Daniel Pool

What others would you recommend?

IIRC, the Pool book covers a whole century in which there were many changes without clearly marking specific periods.
I highly recommend this site: Laura's British Titles of Nobility:

Most of my history books are packed away and the only boxes I can get at for now are on the English Middle Ages, so how about this...

Candice Hern's fabulous web site has a wonderful Regency World section, which includes things like history, bios, glosssary, slang, timeline, fashion, people, places, photos, etc.; links for research on crime, food and drink, money, nobility, fashion, transportation, military, maps, etc.; her personal collections page of items, fashion plates, etc.; and a Regency discussion page. In other words, a treasure trove of things. It's really worth the time to find just how many layers of info she has there; just when I think I've seen it all, more pops up.

Loretta Chase also has a wonderful blog called Two Nerdy History Girls, which also includes many other very useful links:
