                PART II. INFORMATION NOT REQUIRED IN PROSPECTUS
 
ITEM 20. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS.
 
  The Articles of Incorporation of Host REIT authorizes it, to the maximum
extent permitted by Maryland law, to obligate itself to indemnify and to pay
or reimburse reasonable expenses in advance of final disposition of a
proceeding to (a) any present or former director or officer or (b) any
individual who, while a director of Host REIT and at the request of Host REIT,
serves or has served another corporation, real estate investment trust,
partnership, joint venture, trust, employee benefit plan or any other
enterprise from and against any claim or liability to which such person may
become subject or which such person may incur by reason of his or her status
as a present or former Director or officer of Host REIT. The Bylaws of Host
REIT obligate it, to the maximum extent permitted by Maryland law, to
indemnify and to pay or reimburse reasonable expenses in advance of final
disposition of a proceeding to (a) any present or former director or officer
who is made party to the proceeding by reason of his service in that capacity
or (b) any individual who, while a director or officer of Host REIT and at the
request of Host REIT, serves or has served another corporation, real estate
investment trust, partnership, joint venture, trust, employee benefit plan or
any other enterprise as a trustee, director, officer or partner of such
corporation, real estate investment trust, partnership, joint venture, trust,
employee benefit plan or other enterprise and who is made a party to the
proceeding by reason of his service in that capacity, against any claim or
liability to which he may become subject by reason of such status. The
Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws also permit Host REIT to indemnify and
advance expenses to any person who served a predecessor of Host REIT in any of
the capacities described above and to any employee or agent of Host REIT or a
predecessor of Host REIT. The Bylaws require Host REIT to indemnify a director
or officer who has been successful, on the merits or otherwise, in the defense
of any proceeding to which he is made a party by reason of his service in that
capacity.
 
  The MGCL permits a Maryland corporation to indemnify and advance expenses to
its directors, officers, employees and agents. Host REIT will indemnify its
present and former directors and officers, among others, against judgments,
penalties, fines, settlements and reasonable expenses actually incurred by
them in connection with any proceeding to which they may be made a party by
reason of their service in those or other capacities unless it is established
that (a) the act or omission of the director or officer was material to the
matter giving rise to the proceeding and (i) was committed in bad faith or
(ii) was the result of active and deliberate dishonesty, (b) the director or
officer actually received an improper personal benefit in money, property or
services or (c) in the case of any criminal proceeding, the director or
officer had reasonable cause to believe that the act or omission was unlawful.
However, under Maryland law, Host REIT may not indemnify a director or officer
in a suit by or in the right of the corporation if such director or officer
has been adjudged to be liable to the corporation. The Bylaws of Host REIT
require it, as a condition to advancing expenses, to obtain (a) a written
affirmation by the director or officer of his good faith belief that he has
met the standard of conduct necessary for indemnification by Host REIT as
authorized by the Bylaws and (b) a written statement by or on his behalf to
repay the amount paid or reimbursed by Host REIT if it shall ultimately be
determined that the standard of conduct was not met.

ITEM 22. UNDERTAKINGS.
 
  The undersigned registrants hereby undertake as follows: that prior to any
public reoffering of the securities registered hereunder through use of a
prospectus which is part of this registration statement, by any person or
party who is deemed to be an underwriter within the meaning of Rule 145(c),
the issuer undertakes that such reoffering prospectus will contain the
information called for by the applicable registration form with respect to
reofferings by persons who may be deemed underwriters, in addition to the
information called for by the other Items of the applicable form.
 
                                     II-5

<PAGE>
 
  The registrants undertake that every prospectus (i) that is filed pursuant
to the immediately preceding paragraph or (ii) that purports to meet the
requirements of section 10(a)(3) of the Act and is used in connection with an
offering of securities subject to Rule 415, will be filed as a part of an
amendment to the registration statement and will not be used until such
amendment is effective, and that, for purposes of determining any liability
under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, each such post-effective
amendment shall be deemed a new registration statement relating to the
securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time
shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
 
  Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act
of 1933, as amended, may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling
persons of a registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise,
the registrants have been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and
Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed
in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for
indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by a
registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling
person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or
proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in
connection with the securities being registered, the registrants will, unless
in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling
precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether
such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act
and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
 
  The undersigned registrants hereby undertake to file an application for the
purpose of determining the eligibility of the trustee to act under subsection
(a) of Section 310 of the Trust Indenture Act in accordance with the rules and
regulations prescribed by the Commission under Section 305(b)(2) of the Trust
Indenture Act.
 
  The undersigned registrants hereby undertake to respond to requests for
information that is incorporated by reference into the prospectus pursuant to
Items 4, 10(b), 11 or 13 of this Form, within one business day of receipt of
such request, and to send the incorporated documents by first class mail or
other equally prompt means. This includes information contained in documents
filed subsequent to the effective date of the registration statement through
the date of responding to the request.
 
  The undersigned registrants hereby undertake to supply by means of a post-
effective amendment all information concerning a transaction, and the company
being acquired involved therein, that was not the subject of and included in
the registration statement when it became effective.
 
  The undersigned hereby undertake to supply by means of a post-effective
amendment to Part II of the registration statement no later than 15 days prior
to the end of the Solicitation Period a copy of the signed tax opinion of
Hogan & Hartson L.L.P. with respect to qualification of HMC Merger Corporation
as a REIT and with respect to the treatment of the Operating Partnership as a
partnership for federal income tax purposes even if it were a "publicly traded
partnership" substantially in the form and to the effect of Appendix D to the
prospectus/consent solicitation statement included in the registration
statement.

                                       [For all states except Florida and Texas]
                              
                           QUESTIONS & ANSWERS     
 
1. IF MY PARTNERSHIP VOTES FOR THE MERGER, WHAT WILL I RECEIVE IN EXCHANGE FOR
MY PARTNERSHIP UNIT?
 
  If your Partnership votes to approve the Merger and the Merger is
consummated, all of the Limited Partners in your Partnership will receive
units of limited partnership interest in the Operating Partnership ("OP
Units"). Each OP Unit is intended to be the economic equivalent of a Host REIT
Common Share.
 
  You can retain the OP Units issued to you in the Merger or make the
following elections at any time from the beginning of the solicitation period
until the 15th trading day following the closing of the Merger (the "Election
Period"):
 
  .  COMMON SHARE ELECTION: to exchange the OP Units that you would receive
     in the Merger for an equal number of shares of Host REIT Common Shares,
     or
 
  .  NOTE ELECTION: to exchange the OP Units that you would receive in the
     Merger for a Note issued by the Operating Partnership (see the Answer to
     Question 11 below).
 
  If you elect to retain the OP Units issued to you in the Merger, you will
have the right, beginning one year after the Merger, to exchange your OP Units
at any time for either Common Shares of Host REIT, on a one-for-one basis, or
cash in
 an amount equal to the market value of such shares, at the election of
Host REIT (the "Unit Redemption Right").
 
  The following table sets forth for each Partnership, on a per Partnership
Unit basis, the estimated Exchange Value for that Partnership and the
estimated dollar amount of the Note that would be issued to a Limited Partner
electing to receive a Note. (For a description of how these amounts were
determined, see the Answers to Questions 6 and 11 below).

PHLP.........................................    $  5,040         $  4,032
</TABLE>
    
 
  The number of OP Units that you will receive in the Merger will be
determined by dividing the Exchange Value for your Partnership Interest by the
average closing price on the New York Stock Exchange for the Host REIT Common
Shares for the first 20 trading days following the Merger (but that price
would not be greater than $15.50 or less than $9.50). Your OP Units, Host REIT
Common Share or Note, as applicable, will be issued promptly after this
determination is made.

  The following table sets forth for each Partnership (on a per Partnership
Unit basis) the estimated minimum number of OP Units and the estimated maximum
number of OP Units, and the number of OP Units that would be issued at the
midpoint between the minimum and maximum, each computed based upon the
estimated Exchange Values.

(1) Assumes that the average closing price of Host REIT Common Shares for the
    20 trading days following the Mergers is $12.50, the midpoint between the
    minimum price ($9.50) and the maximum price ($15.50).
 
  For example, if the Merger closes on December 30, 1998, the Election Period
would end on January 22, 1999, the period for determining the value of the
Host REIT Common Shares would end January 29, 1999, and the OP Units (or
Common Shares or Notes) would be distributed to the Limited Partners on or
about February 5, 1999.
 
2. DESCRIBE AN OP UNIT.
 
  An OP Unit will constitute a limited partnership interest in the Operating
Partnership. The OP Units are structured with the intent that they be
economically equivalent to the Host REIT Common Shares. All holders of OP
Units will be entitled to share in cash distributions from, and in the profits
and losses of, the Operating Partnership. Thus, the cash distributions per OP
Unit are expected to correspond to the cash distributions per share paid by
Host REIT with respect to the Common Shares. Commencing one year after the
Mergers, each holder of an OP Unit will have the right at any time to exchange
his OP Units on a one-for-one basis for Host REIT Common Shares or the cash
equivalent thereof (at the election of Host REIT).
 
3. HOW DO I SUBMIT MY VOTE WITH RESPECT TO THE MERGER? HOW WOULD I EXERCISE
   THE ELECTION TO RECEIVE COMMON SHARES OR A NOTE IN CONNECTION WITH THE
   MERGER?
   
  You vote with respect to the Merger by fully completing the Consent Form
(YELLOW) and returning the Consent Form to the Tabulation Agent, at the
following address:     
 
  Gemisys
  7103 South Revere Parkway
  Englewood, Colorado 80172
  (Postage Paid Envelope Enclosed) or
 
  VIA FACSIMILE
     
  800-387-7365     
 
                                       2

<PAGE>
 
   
prior to 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, on the last day of the Solicitation Period,
which will be December 12, 1998, unless extended by the General Partners and
the Operating Partnership. You will receive a written notice if the
Solicitation Period is extended.     
 
  In order to vote in favor of the Merger, you must vote FOR the Merger and
FOR the amendments to the partnership agreement. A vote AGAINST either the
Merger or the amendments effectively will be a vote AGAINST the Merger.
 
  If you are a Limited Partner in Atlanta Marquis, Chicago Suites, MDAH or
PHLP and you either fail to return the Consent Form or return the Consent Form
and abstain as to either matter, that action effectively will be a vote
AGAINST the Merger.
 
  If you are a partner in Desert Springs, Hanover, MHP or MHP 2 and return the
Consent Form but abstain as to either matter, that action also effectively
will be a vote AGAINST the Merger; if you do not return the Consent Form, you
will not be counted for purposes of determining whether the required majority
of Limited Partners is present for purposes of having a vote to approve the
Merger.
   
  IF YOU WANT TO ELECT TO RECEIVE COMMON SHARES OR A NOTE, YOU NEED TO
COMPLETE AN OP UNIT EXCHANGE ELECTION FORM (BLUE) AND RETURN IT TO THE
TABULATION AGENT AT ANY TIME PRIOR TO 5:00 P.M., EASTERN TIME, ON THE 15TH
TRADING DAY FOLLOWING THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE MERGERS. You can return the OP
Unit Exchange Election Form with your Consent Form, but you are not required
to do so. In addition, you are permitted to submit an OP Unit Exchange
Election Form even if you do not return a Consent Form or if you return a
Consent Form but vote against the Merger.     
   
  If you submit an OP Unit Exchange Election Form prior to the end of the
Election Period, you are free up until the end of the Election Period to
revoke any election made previously (and make a new election) so long as the
Tabulation Agent receives written notice of such action prior to the end of
the Election Period. Once the Effective Time of the Mergers has occurred, the
Operating Partnership will give you notice of when the Election Period will
expire.     
 
4. WHAT ARE THE RISKS TO ME IF I APPROVE THE MERGER?
 
  The risk factors associated with the Mergers are described in several
sections of the Consent Solicitation, including the "Summary--Risk Factors,"
"Risk Factors," and "Conflicts of Interest." Some of these risk factors are:
 
  .Substantial Benefits to Related Parties
 
  .Absence of Arm's Length Negotiations
 
  .Other Conflicts of Interest
 
  .No Opportunity to Benefit from Crestline Stock
 
  .Exchange Value May Not Equal Fair Market Value of the Partnerships' Hotels
 
  .Inability of Limited Partners Who Retain OP Units to Redeem OP Units for
  One Year
 
                                       3

5. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO ME IN PARTICIPATING IN THE MERGER?
 
  The General Partners believe that the Mergers provide substantial benefits
to the Limited Partners. Those benefits include:
 
  .Liquidity
 
  .Regular Quarterly Cash Distributions
 
  .Substantial Tax Deferral for Limited Partners Not Electing to Exchange
   OP Units for Common Shares or Notes
 
  .Risk Diversification
 
  .Reduction in Leverage and Interest Costs
 
  .Growth Potential
 
  .Greater Access to Capital
 
  .Public Market Valuation of Assets
 
6. HOW WAS THE ESTIMATED EXCHANGE VALUE OF A PARTNERSHIP UNIT DETERMINED?
 
  The method used for determining the estimated Exchange Value of a
Partnership Unit is described in several sections of the Consent Solicitation,
including the "Summary--Determination of Exchange Values and Allocation of OP
Units," "Risk Factors" and
 
                                       4

<PAGE>
 
   
"Conflicts of Interest." In addition, there is an entire section,
"Determination of Exchange Values and Allocation of OP Units," beginning on
page 79 of the Consent Solicitation with an overview. We encourage you to
review this information as more fully described in the Consent Solicitation.
    
  The Exchange Value of each Partnership is equal to the greatest of its
Adjusted Appraised Value, Continuation Value and Liquidation Value.
 
  Adjusted Appraised Value. The General Partners retained American Appraisal
Associates, Inc. ("AAA") to determine the market value of the hotels owned by
each of the Partnerships as of March 1, 1998 ("Appraised Value"). The Adjusted
Appraised Value of each Partnership equals the Appraised Value of its hotel(s)
(adjusted as of the end of the "accounting period" ending not less than 20
days before the Mergers), adjusted for lender reserves, capital expenditure
reserves, existing indebtedness (including a "mark to market" adjustment to
reflect the market value of such indebtedness), certain deferred maintenance
costs, deferred management fees and transfer and recordation taxes and fees.
 
  Continuation Value. The Continuation Value for each Partnership was arrived
at through the use of estimates prepared by AAA for the Partnership of the
discounted present value, as of January 1, 1998, of the limited partners'
share of estimated future cash distributions and estimated net sales proceeds
(plus lender reserves), assuming that the Partnership continues as an
operating business for twelve years and its assets are sold at the end of 2009
for their then estimated market value.
 
  Liquidation Value. The Liquidation Value for each Partnership is the General
Partner's estimate of the net proceeds to limited partners resulting from the
assumed sale of the Partnership's hotel(s) as of December 31, 1998, each at
its Adjusted Appraised Value (after eliminating any "mark to market"
adjustment and adding back the deduction for transfer and recordation taxes
and fees, if any, made in deriving the Adjusted Appraised Value) less
(i) estimated liquidation costs, expenses and contingencies equal to 2.5% of
Appraised Value and (ii) prepayment penalties or defeasance costs, as
applicable.
 
  The Exchange Value is the highest of the three valuations. The following
table sets forth for each Partnership (on a per Partnership Unit basis) the
estimated Adjusted Appraised Value, estimated Continuation Value, estimated
Liquidation Valuation, and the resulting estimated Exchange Value.

  As described above in the answer to Question 1, the number of OP Units that
you will receive as a result of a Merger (or Host REIT Common Shares if you
elect to receive Common Shares in connection with the Merger) will be
determined based upon the final Exchange Value for your Partnership Interest
(which will be determined prior to the closing of the Mergers) and the average
closing price for Host REIT Common Shares on the New York Stock Exchange for
the 20 trading days following the Merger (but in no event will it be less than
$9.50 or greater than $15.50 per OP Unit). This pricing mechanism has the
effect of fixing the minimum and maximum number of OP Units to be issued in
the Mergers.
 
  The General Partners believe that the value of the OP Units allocable to the
Limited Partners in each Partnership on the basis of the Exchange Value
established for that Partnership represents fair consideration for the
Partnership Interests held by the Limited Partners in that Partnership and is
fair from a financial point of view.
 
7. WHAT WILL THE FEDERAL INCOME TAX EFFECT OF THIS TRANSACTION BE FOR ME?
 
  The Mergers are not expected to result in the immediate recognition of
taxable income or gain by an "original" Limited Partner (i.e., a Limited
Partner who purchased his Partnership Interest at the time the Interests were
originally offered for purchase and who has retained those Interests since
that time) who does not elect to receive the Common Shares or a Note in
connection with the Merger (except for a small amount of ordinary income that
might be recognized by the Limited Partners in Atlanta Marquis, Desert
Springs, MHP and PHLP resulting from the sale of certain personal property by
each such Partnership). If you are not an "original" Limited Partner, you need
to review with your tax advisor the specific tax consequences to you of the
Merger.
     
  .  IF YOU RETAIN YOUR OP UNITS FOLLOWING THE MERGER, there are a variety of
     future events and transactions that could cause you to recognize part or
     all of the taxable gain deferred at the time of the Merger. These events
     could include, for example, your exercise of your Unit Redemption Right,
     a sale by the Operating Partnership of one or more of the Hotels owned
     by your Partnership, or a repayment or other reduction of part or all of
     the nonrecourse debt secured by the Hotels owned by your Partnership.
         
  .  IF YOU ELECT TO RECEIVE EITHER COMMON SHARES OR A NOTE IN CONNECTION
     WITH THE MERGER, you will be considered to have made a taxable
     disposition of your OP Units and will recognize taxable gain equal to
     the sum of the fair market value of the Common Shares received (or the
     principal amount of the Note), plus your "share" of the Operating
     Partnership's liabilities (as determined for federal income tax
     purposes), less your adjusted basis in your Partnership Interest.
 
  .  IF YOU ELECT TO RECEIVE COMMON SHARES, the gain likely would be
     recognized at the time your right to receive Common Shares becomes fixed
     (which would be January 22, 1999, if the Mergers occur on December 30,
     1998).
 
  .  IF YOU ELECT TO RECEIVE A NOTE, the taxable disposition likely would be
     deemed to occur when the Mergers are completed (which currently is
     expected to be December 30, 1998), but you may be able to elect to use
     the "installment method" to defer the recognition of at least a portion
     of the gain attributable to receipt of a Note.
 
                                       6

  Any gain that you recognize if you elect to receive Common Shares or a Note
in connection with the Mergers (or other income recognized as a result of the
Mergers) can be offset by unused passive activity losses that you may have
either from your investment in your Partnership or from other investments.
   
  The tables on pages 8 and 9 show for each Partnership the estimated gain to
an "original" Limited Partner owning one Partnership Unit who purchased the
Partnership Unit for cash if the Limited Partner elects to receive Common
Shares or a Note in connection with the Mergers (together with the
hypothetical federal income tax that would be owed if such gain simply were to
be multiplied by the maximum federal income tax rate applicable to gain of
that type).     
   
  The tables on page 10 show for each Partnership the estimated gain to an
"original" Limited Partner owning one Partnership Unit purchased pursuant to
the installment payment plan if the Limited Partner elects to receive Common
Shares or a Note in connection with the Mergers (together with the
hypothetical federal income tax that would be owed if such gain simply were to
be multiplied by the maximum federal income tax rate applicable to gain of
that type).     
   
  The table on page 11 shows for each Partnership, on a per Partnership Unit
basis, the estimated unused passive activity loss carryforwards that an
"original" Limited Partner would have as of December 31, 1998.     
 
  The information in these tables is derived from the information set forth in
the Supplement for your Partnership to the Consent Solicitation Statement
under the caption "Federal Income Tax Consequences--Tax Treatment of the [Your
Partnership] Limited Partners Who Exercise Their Right to Make the Common
Share Election or the Note Election" and "Federal Income Tax Consequences--Tax
Treatment of [Your Partnership] Limited Partners Who Hold OP Units Following
the Merger--Impact on Passive Activity Losses of an Investment in a Publicly
Traded Partnership," and certain key assumptions that are described in the
Supplement under the caption "Federal Income Tax Consequences--Assumptions
Used in Determining Tax Consequences of the Merger." It is essential that you
review the information in these sections of the applicable Supplement and the
assumptions set forth (or referenced) therein in conjunction with the tables
on the following pages.
   
  THE SPECIFIC TAX ATTRIBUTES OF A PARTICULAR LIMITED PARTNER COULD HAVE A
MATERIAL IMPACT ON THE TAX CONSEQUENCES OF THE MERGER, AND THE SUBSEQUENT
OWNERSHIP AND DISPOSITION OF YOUR OP UNITS, COMMON SHARES OR NOTES. THEREFORE,
IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU CONSULT WITH YOUR OWN TAX ADVISORS WITH REGARD TO THE
APPLICATION OF THE FEDERAL INCOME TAX LAWS TO YOUR PERSONAL TAX SITUATION
(PARTICULARLY IN CONNECTION WITH A DECISION WHETHER OR NOT TO ELECT TO RECEIVE
COMMON SHARES OR A NOTE IN CONNECTION WITH THE MERGERS), AS WELL AS ANY TAX
CONSEQUENCES ARISING UNDER THE LAWS OF ANY STATE, LOCAL OR FOREIGN TAXING
JURISDICTION.

8. WHY DOESN'T THE PARTNERSHIP JUST SELL THE HOTELS TO HOST OR ANOTHER
   PURCHASER, INSTEAD OF MERGING OUR PARTNERSHIP INTO THE OPERATING
   PARTNERSHIP?
 
  A sale of the Partnership's assets would result in the liquidation and
termination of each Partnership. A sale would result in each Limited Partner,
as well as Host Marriott, recognizing a substantial tax gain, and receiving
proceeds approximating the Liquidation Value, which in each case is
significantly less than the Exchange Value.
 
9. WHY IS HOST MARRIOTT CORPORATION CONVERTING TO A REIT?
 
  Host Marriott Corporation believes that the REIT structure, as a more tax
efficient structure, will provide improved operating results through changing
economic conditions and all phases of the hotel economic cycle. In this
regard, Host believes the REIT Conversion, which will reduce corporate-level
taxes and the need to incur debt to reduce taxes through interest deductions,
will improve its financial flexibility and allow it to continue to strengthen
its balance sheet by reducing its overall debt to equity ratio over time. As a
REIT, Host believes it will be able to compete more effectively with other
public lodging real estate companies that already are organized as REITs. Host
also believes that the REIT conversion will make performance comparisons with
its peers more meaningful.
 
                                      11

<PAGE>
 
  By becoming a dividend paying company, Host believes its shareholder base
will expand to include investors attracted by yield as well as asset quality.
In addition, the adoption of the UPREIT structure is expected to facilitate
tax-deferred acquisitions of other quality hotel properties.
 
10. WHY IS THE OPERATING PARTNERSHIP LEASING THE HOTELS? WHAT IS CRESTLINE?
    WILL I RECEIVE ANY CRESTLINE STOCK?
 
  Under current federal income tax law, REITs are not permitted to derive
revenues directly from the operation of hotels. Therefore, the Operating
Partnership will lease its hotels to Crestline. Crestline currently is a
wholly owned subsidiary of Host, but Crestline will become a separate public
company when Host distributes the common stock of Crestline and other
consideration to Host's existing shareholders and the Blackstone entities in
connection with the REIT Conversion. This distribution will be done in
connection with Host's required distribution of its accumulated earnings and
profits in order to qualify as a REIT. Shares of Host REIT and Crestline will
be separately traded securities, and the two companies will operate
independently.
 
  The Limited Partners will not receive any Crestline stock in connection with
the Mergers. The pricing mechanism for the Mergers--which is based upon the
average closing price for Host REIT Common Shares for the 20 trading days
following the Mergers (all of which will be after the Crestline stock has been
distributed)--is designed to ensure that your OP Units are fairly valued after
giving effect to Host's distribution of the Crestline stock to its
shareholders.
 
11. WHAT WILL BE THE TERMS OF THE NOTE IF I ELECT TO RECEIVE A NOTE?
 
  The Notes will be direct, senior unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of
the Operating Partnership. The Notes will mature on December 15, 2005, or
approximately seven years following the Mergers. The Notes will bear interest
at a fixed rate of interest equal to 6.56% per annum. Interest will be payable
in arrears on each June 15 and December 15, commencing on June 15, 1999. The
principal amount of the Notes with respect to each Partnership will be equal
to the Liquidation Value, or if greater, 80% of the Exchange Value for your
Partnership Interest. (See the Answer to Question 1 for these amounts.) For a
table showing the estimated principal amount of the Notes with respect to each
Partnership, on a per Partnership Unit basis, see the Answer to Question 1.
 
12. I CURRENTLY OWN A VERY ILLIQUID INVESTMENT; WILL THIS CHANGE IF I VOTE FOR
    THE MERGER?
 
  Your Partnership Units are relatively illiquid investments. Although there
may be a limited resale market for your Partnership Units, the trading volume
is thin and the recent average trading prices of the outstanding Partnership
Units in each of the Partnerships are less than the estimated Exchange Value
for the Partnership Units. The Merger will offer you liquidity because you can
elect to exchange OP Units received in the Merger for Common Shares. In
addition, if you elect to retain your OP Units following the Mergers, you will
have
 
                                      12

<PAGE>
 
   
the right at any time, commencing one year following the Mergers, to exchange
your OP Units, on a one-for-one basis, for Host REIT Common Shares or the cash
equivalent thereof, at the election of Host REIT.     
 
13. DO ALL EIGHT PARTNERSHIPS NEED TO VOTE "FOR" A MERGER FOR THE TRANSACTION
    INVOLVING MY PARTNERSHIP TO BE COMPLETED?
 
  No. Each Partnership votes individually on the transaction, and no Merger is
conditioned upon the consummation of any other Merger.
   
14. ON PAGE 136 OF THE CONSENT SOLICITATION, HOST ESTIMATES THAT THE
    DISTRIBUTIONS PER OP UNIT DURING 1999 WILL BE APPROXIMATELY $0.84 PER OP
    UNIT (ASSUMING THE MERGER OCCURS IN 1998). IF THIS ESTIMATE IS CORRECT,
    HOW MUCH CASH WOULD A LIMITED PARTNER OWNING ONE PARTNERSHIP UNIT RECEIVE
    FOR 1999, AND HOW DOES THAT COMPARE WITH THE DISTRIBUTION FROM MY
    PARTNERSHIP FOR 1997 AND 1998?     
   
  Based upon preliminary estimates of Host REIT's taxable income for 1999, the
Operating Partnership currently estimates its initial annual distribution will
be approximately $0.84 per OP Unit ($0.21 per quarter) during 1999, a portion
of which may come from borrowings. Distributions are expected to be paid in
January, April, July and October of each year, except that the first
distribution in 1999 is expected to be paid at the end of February if the REIT
Conversion is completed in 1998. The actual amount of cash distributions that
you would receive for 1999 if you were to retain the OP Units issued to you in
the Mergers would depend upon the number of OP Units issued to you in the
Merger with respect to your Partnership Interest. The Answer to Question 1
explains how that number will be determined.     
   
  If Host's preliminary estimate of $226 million of cash distributions by the
Operating Partnership during 1999 proves accurate but the Operating
Partnership's cash available for distribution were only equal to its estimated
cash available for distribution ($163 million) and estimated cash from
contingent rents ($54 million) during 1999, then the Operating Partnership
would be required to borrow approximately $9 million (or $0.04 per OP Unit) to
make such distributions. Moreover, if estimated cash from contingent rents
were less than $54 million, then the Operating Partnership also would be
required to borrow any such shortfall in order to make such distributions.
While the Operating Partnership does not believe this will be necessary, it
believes it would be able to borrow the necessary amounts under its credit
facility or from other sources and that any such borrowing would not have a
material adverse effect on its financial condition or results of operations.
    
                                      13

<PAGE>
 
  The following table sets forth for each Partnership, on a per Partnership
Unit basis, the actual cash distributions made from operations during 1997 and
the actual and expected distribution levels from operations during 1998, as
well as three alternative expected distributions that would be made with
respect to OP Units for 1999 if the Mergers and the REIT Conversion occur
(assuming that the Mergers occur on December 30, 1998), computed assuming that
the OP Units are valued for purposes of the Mergers at $9.50 (the minimum
price), $15.50 (the maximum price), and $12.50 (the midpoint between the
minimum price and the maximum price).

1. IF MY PARTNERSHIP VOTES FOR THE MERGER, WHAT WILL I RECEIVE IN EXCHANGE FOR
MY PARTNERSHIP UNIT?
 
  If your Partnership votes to approve the Merger and the Merger is
consummated, all of the Limited Partners in your Partnership will receive
units of limited partnership interest in the Operating Partnership ("OP
Units"). Each OP Unit is intended to be the economic equivalent of a Host REIT
Common Share.
 
  You can retain the OP Units issued to you in the Merger or make the
following elections at any time from the beginning of the solicitation period
until the 15th trading day following the closing of the Merger (the "Election
Period"):
 
  .  COMMON SHARE ELECTION: to exchange the OP Units that you would receive
     in the Merger for an equal number of shares of Host REIT Common Shares,
     or
 
  .  NOTE ELECTION: to exchange the OP Units that you would receive in the
     Merger for a Note issued by the Operating Partnership (see the Answer to
     Question 11 below).
 
  If you elect to retain the OP Units issued to you in the Merger, you will
have the right, beginning one year after the Merger, to exchange your OP Units
at any time for either Common Shares of Host REIT, on a one-for-one basis, or
cash in an amount equal to the market value of such shares, at the election of
Host REIT (the "Unit Redemption Right").
 
  The following table sets forth for each Partnership, on a per Partnership
Unit basis, the estimated Exchange Value for that Partnership and the
estimated dollar amount of the Note that would be issued to a Limited Partner
electing to receive a Note. (For a description of how these amounts were
determined, see the Answers to Questions 6 and 11 below).

</TABLE>
    
 
  The number of OP Units that you will receive in the Merger will be
determined by dividing the Exchange Value for your Partnership Interest by the
average closing price on the New York Stock Exchange for the Host REIT Common
Shares for the first 20 trading days following the Merger (but that price
would not be greater than $15.50 or less than $9.50). Your OP Units, Host REIT
Common Share or Note, as applicable, will be issued promptly after this
determination is made.

  The following table sets forth for each Partnership (on a per Partnership
Unit basis) the estimated minimum number of OP Units and the estimated maximum
number of OP Units, and the number of OP Units that would be issued at the
midpoint between the minimum and maximum, each computed based upon the
estimated Exchange Values.

(1) Assumes that the average closing price of Host REIT Common Shares for the
    20 trading days following the Mergers is $12.50, the midpoint between the
    minimum price ($9.50) and the maximum price ($15.50).
 
  For example, if the Merger closes on December 30, 1998, the Election Period
would end on January 22, 1999, the period for determining the value of the
Host REIT Common Shares would end January 29, 1999, and the OP Units (or
Common Shares or Notes) would be distributed to the Limited Partners on or
about February 5, 1999.
 
2. DESCRIBE AN OP UNIT.
 
  An OP Unit will constitute a limited partnership interest in the Operating
Partnership. The OP Units are structured with the intent that they be
economically equivalent to the Host REIT Common Shares. All holders of OP
Units will be entitled to share in cash distributions from, and in the profits
and losses of, the Operating Partnership. Thus, the cash distributions per OP
Unit are expected to correspond to the cash distributions per share paid by
Host REIT with respect to the Common Shares. Commencing one year after the
Mergers, each holder of an OP Unit will have the right at any time to exchange
his OP Units on a one-for-one basis for Host REIT Common Shares or the cash
equivalent thereof (at the election of Host REIT).
 
3. HOW DO I SUBMIT MY VOTE WITH RESPECT TO THE MERGER? HOW WOULD I EXERCISE
   THE ELECTION TO RECEIVE COMMON SHARES OR A NOTE IN CONNECTION WITH THE
   MERGER?
   
  You vote with respect to the Merger by fully completing the Consent Form
(YELLOW) and returning the Consent Form to the Tabulation Agent, at the
following address:     
 
  Gemisys
  7103 South Revere Parkway
  Englewood, Colorado 80172
  (Postage Paid Envelope Enclosed) or
 
  VIA FACSIMILE
     
  800-387-7365     
 
                                       2

<PAGE>
 
   
prior to 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, on the last day of the Solicitation Period,
which will be December 12, 1998, unless extended by the General Partners and
the Operating Partnership. You will receive a written notice if the
Solicitation Period is extended.     
 
  In order to vote in favor of the Merger, you must vote FOR the Merger and
FOR the amendments to the partnership agreement. A vote AGAINST either the
Merger or the amendments effectively will be a vote AGAINST the Merger.
 
  If you are a Limited Partner in Atlanta Marquis, Chicago Suites, MDAH or
PHLP and you either fail to return the Consent Form or return the Consent Form
and abstain as to either matter, that action effectively will be a vote
AGAINST the Merger.
 
  If you are a partner in Desert Springs, Hanover, MHP or MHP 2 and return the
Consent Form but abstain as to either matter, that action also effectively
will be a vote AGAINST the Merger; if you do not return the Consent Form, you
will not be counted for purposes of determining whether the required majority
of Limited Partners is present for purposes of having a vote to approve the
Merger.
   
  IF YOU WANT TO ELECT TO RECEIVE COMMON SHARES OR A NOTE, YOU NEED TO
COMPLETE AN OP UNIT EXCHANGE ELECTION FORM (BLUE) AND RETURN IT TO THE
TABULATION AGENT AT ANY TIME PRIOR TO 5:00 P.M., EASTERN TIME, ON THE 15TH
TRADING DAY FOLLOWING THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE MERGERS. You can return the OP
Unit Exchange Election Form with your Consent Form, but you are not required
to do so. In addition, you are permitted to submit an OP Unit Exchange
Election Form even if you do not return a Consent Form or if you return a
Consent Form but vote against the Merger.     
   
  If you submit an OP Unit Exchange Election Form prior to the end of the
Election Period, you are free up until the end of the Election Period to
revoke any election made previously (and make a new election) so long as the
Tabulation Agent receives written notice of such action prior to the end of
the Election Period. Once the Effective Time of the Mergers has occurred, the
Operating Partnership will give you notice of when the Election Period will
expire.     
 
4. WHAT ARE THE RISKS TO ME IF I APPROVE THE MERGER?
 
  The risk factors associated with the Mergers are described in several
sections of the Consent Solicitation, including the "Summary--Risk Factors,"
"Risk Factors," and "Conflicts of Interest." Some of these risk factors are:
 
  .Substantial Benefits to Related Parties
 
  .Absence of Arm's Length Negotiations
 
  .Other Conflicts of Interest
 
  .No Opportunity to Benefit from Crestline Stock
 
  .Exchange Value May Not Equal Fair Market Value of the Partnerships' Hotels
 
  .Inability of Limited Partners Who Retain OP Units to Redeem OP Units for
  One Year
 
                                       3

5. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO ME IN PARTICIPATING IN THE MERGER?
 
  The General Partners believe that the Mergers provide substantial benefits
to the Limited Partners. Those benefits include:
 
  .Liquidity
 
  .Regular Quarterly Cash Distributions
 
  .Substantial Tax Deferral for Limited Partners Not Electing to Exchange
   OP Units for Common Shares or Notes
 
  .Risk Diversification
 
  .Reduction in Leverage and Interest Costs
 
  .Growth Potential
 
  .Greater Access to Capital
 
  .Public Market Valuation of Assets
 
6. HOW WAS THE ESTIMATED EXCHANGE VALUE OF A PARTNERSHIP UNIT DETERMINED?
 
  The method used for determining the estimated Exchange Value of a
Partnership Unit is described in several sections of the Consent Solicitation,
including the "Summary--Determination of Exchange Values and Allocation of OP
Units," "Risk Factors" and
 
                                       4

<PAGE>
 
   
"Conflicts of Interest." In addition, there is an entire section,
"Determination of Exchange Values and Allocation of OP Units," beginning on
page 79 of the Consent Solicitation with an overview. We encourage you to
review this information as more fully described in the Consent Solicitation.
    
  The Exchange Value of each Partnership is equal to the greatest of its
Adjusted Appraised Value, Continuation Value and Liquidation Value.
 
  Adjusted Appraised Value. The General Partners retained American Appraisal
Associates, Inc. ("AAA") to determine the market value of the hotels owned by
each of the Partnerships as of March 1, 1998 ("Appraised Value"). The Adjusted
Appraised Value of each Partnership equals the Appraised Value of its hotel(s)
(adjusted as of the end of the "accounting period" ending not less than 20
days before the Mergers), adjusted for lender reserves, capital expenditure
reserves, existing indebtedness (including a "mark to market" adjustment to
reflect the market value of such indebtedness), certain deferred maintenance
costs, deferred management fees and transfer and recordation taxes and fees.
 
  Continuation Value. The Continuation Value for each Partnership was arrived
at through the use of estimates prepared by AAA for the Partnership of the
discounted present value, as of January 1, 1998, of the limited partners'
share of estimated future cash distributions and estimated net sales proceeds
(plus lender reserves), assuming that the Partnership continues as an
operating business for twelve years and its assets are sold at the end of 2009
for their then estimated market value.
 
  Liquidation Value. The Liquidation Value for each Partnership is the General
Partner's estimate of the net proceeds to limited partners resulting from the
assumed sale of the Partnership's hotel(s) as of December 31, 1998, each at
its Adjusted Appraised Value (after eliminating any "mark to market"
adjustment and adding back the deduction for transfer and recordation taxes
and fees, if any, made in deriving the Adjusted Appraised Value) less
(i) estimated liquidation costs, expenses and contingencies equal to 2.5% of
Appraised Value and (ii) prepayment penalties or defeasance costs, as
applicable.
 
  The Exchange Value is the highest of the three valuations. The following
table sets forth for each Partnership (on a per Partnership Unit basis) the
estimated Adjusted Appraised Value, estimated Continuation Value, estimated
Liquidation Valuation, and the resulting estimated Exchange Value.

  As described above in the answer to Question 1, the number of OP Units that
you will receive as a result of a Merger (or Host REIT Common Shares if you
elect to receive Common Shares in connection with the Merger) will be
determined based upon the final Exchange Value for your Partnership Interest
(which will be determined prior to the closing of the Mergers) and the average
closing price for Host REIT Common Shares on the New York Stock Exchange for
the 20 trading days following the Merger (but in no event will it be less than
$9.50 or greater than $15.50 per OP Unit). This pricing mechanism has the
effect of fixing the minimum and maximum number of OP Units to be issued in
the Mergers.
 
  The General Partners believe that the value of the OP Units allocable to the
Limited Partners in each Partnership on the basis of the Exchange Value
established for that Partnership represents fair consideration for the
Partnership Interests held by the Limited Partners in that Partnership and is
fair from a financial point of view.
 
7. WHAT WILL THE FEDERAL INCOME TAX EFFECT OF THIS TRANSACTION BE FOR ME?
 
  The Mergers are not expected to result in the immediate recognition of
taxable income or gain by an "original" Limited Partner (i.e., a Limited
Partner who purchased his Partnership Interest at the time the Interests were
originally offered for purchase and who has retained those Interests since
that time) who does not elect to receive the Common Shares or a Note in
connection with the Merger (except for a small amount of ordinary income that
might be recognized by the Limited Partners in Atlanta Marquis, Desert
Springs, MHP and PHLP resulting from the sale of certain personal property by
each such Partnership). If you are not an "original" Limited Partner, you need
to review with your tax advisor the specific tax consequences to you of the
Merger.
     
  .  IF YOU RETAIN YOUR OP UNITS FOLLOWING THE MERGER, there are a variety of
     future events and transactions that could cause you to recognize part or
     all of the taxable gain deferred at the time of the Merger. These events
     could include, for example, your exercise of your Unit Redemption Right,
     a sale by the Operating Partnership of one or more of the Hotels owned
     by your Partnership, or a repayment or other reduction of part or all of
     the nonrecourse debt secured by the Hotels owned by your Partnership.
         
  .  IF YOU ELECT TO RECEIVE EITHER COMMON SHARES OR A NOTE IN CONNECTION
     WITH THE MERGER, you will be considered to have made a taxable
     disposition of your OP Units and will recognize taxable gain equal to
     the sum of the fair market value of the Common Shares received (or the
     principal amount of the Note), plus your "share" of the Operating
     Partnership's liabilities (as determined for federal income tax
     purposes), less your adjusted basis in your Partnership Interest.
 
  .  IF YOU ELECT TO RECEIVE COMMON SHARES, the gain likely would be
     recognized at the time your right to receive Common Shares becomes fixed
     (which would be January 22, 1999, if the Mergers occur on December 30,
     1998).
 
  .  IF YOU ELECT TO RECEIVE A NOTE, the taxable disposition likely would be
     deemed to occur when the Mergers are completed (which currently is
     expected to be December 30, 1998), but you may be able to elect to use
     the "installment method" to defer the recognition of at least a portion
     of the gain attributable to receipt of a Note.
 
                                       6

  Any gain that you recognize if you elect to receive Common Shares or a Note
in connection with the Mergers (or other income recognized as a result of the
Mergers) can be offset by unused passive activity losses that you may have
either from your investment in your Partnership or from other investments.
   
  The tables on pages 8 and 9 show for each Partnership the estimated gain to
an "original" Limited Partner owning one Partnership Unit who purchased the
Partnership Unit for cash if the Limited Partner elects to receive Common
Shares or a Note in connection with the Mergers (together with the
hypothetical federal income tax that would be owed if such gain simply were to
be multiplied by the maximum federal income tax rate applicable to gain of
that type).     
   
  The tables on page 10 show for each Partnership the estimated gain to an
"original" Limited Partner owning one Partnership Unit purchased pursuant to
the installment payment plan if the Limited Partner elects to receive Common
Shares or a Note in connection with the Mergers (together with the
hypothetical federal income tax that would be owed if such gain simply were to
be multiplied by the maximum federal income tax rate applicable to gain of
that type).     
   
  The table on page 11 shows for each Partnership, on a per Partnership Unit
basis, the estimated unused passive activity loss carryforwards that an
"original" Limited Partner would have as of December 31, 1998.     
 
  The information in these tables is derived from the information set forth in
the Supplement for your Partnership to the Consent Solicitation Statement
under the caption "Federal Income Tax Consequences--Tax Treatment of the [Your
Partnership] Limited Partners Who Exercise Their Right to Make the Common
Share Election or the Note Election" and "Federal Income Tax Consequences--Tax
Treatment of [Your Partnership] Limited Partners Who Hold OP Units Following
the Merger--Impact on Passive Activity Losses of an Investment in a Publicly
Traded Partnership," and certain key assumptions that are described in the
Supplement under the caption "Federal Income Tax Consequences--Assumptions
Used in Determining Tax Consequences of the Merger." It is essential that you
review the information in these sections of the applicable Supplement and the
assumptions set forth (or referenced) therein in conjunction with the tables
on the following pages.
   
  THE SPECIFIC TAX ATTRIBUTES OF A PARTICULAR LIMITED PARTNER COULD HAVE A
MATERIAL IMPACT ON THE TAX CONSEQUENCES OF THE MERGER, AND THE SUBSEQUENT
OWNERSHIP AND DISPOSITION OF YOUR OP UNITS, COMMON SHARES OR NOTES. THEREFORE,
IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU CONSULT WITH YOUR OWN TAX ADVISORS WITH REGARD TO THE
APPLICATION OF THE FEDERAL INCOME TAX LAWS TO YOUR PERSONAL TAX SITUATION
(PARTICULARLY IN CONNECTION WITH A DECISION WHETHER OR NOT TO ELECT TO RECEIVE
COMMON SHARES OR A NOTE IN CONNECTION WITH THE MERGERS), AS WELL AS ANY TAX
CONSEQUENCES ARISING UNDER THE LAWS OF ANY STATE, LOCAL OR FOREIGN TAXING
JURISDICTION.

8. WHY DOESN'T THE PARTNERSHIP JUST SELL THE HOTELS TO HOST OR ANOTHER
   PURCHASER, INSTEAD OF MERGING OUR PARTNERSHIP INTO THE OPERATING
   PARTNERSHIP?
 
  A sale of the Partnership's assets would result in the liquidation and
termination of each Partnership. A sale would result in each Limited Partner,
as well as Host Marriott, recognizing a substantial tax gain, and receiving
proceeds approximating the Liquidation Value, which in each case is
significantly less than the Exchange Value.
 
9. WHY IS HOST MARRIOTT CORPORATION CONVERTING TO A REIT?
 
  Host Marriott Corporation believes that the REIT structure, as a more tax
efficient structure, will provide improved operating results through changing
economic conditions and all phases of the hotel economic cycle. In this
regard, Host believes the REIT Conversion, which will reduce corporate-level
taxes and the need to incur debt to reduce taxes through interest deductions,
will improve its financial flexibility and allow it to continue to strengthen
its balance sheet by reducing its overall debt to equity ratio over time. As a
REIT, Host believes it will be able to compete more effectively with other
public lodging real estate companies that already are organized as REITs. Host
also believes that the REIT conversion will make performance comparisons with
its peers more meaningful.
 
                                      11

<PAGE>
 
  By becoming a dividend paying company, Host believes its shareholder base
will expand to include investors attracted by yield as well as asset quality.
In addition, the adoption of the UPREIT structure is expected to facilitate
tax-deferred acquisitions of other quality hotel properties.
 
10. WHY IS THE OPERATING PARTNERSHIP LEASING THE HOTELS? WHAT IS CRESTLINE?
    WILL I RECEIVE ANY CRESTLINE STOCK?
 
  Under current federal income tax law, REITs are not permitted to derive
revenues directly from the operation of hotels. Therefore, the Operating
Partnership will lease its hotels to Crestline. Crestline currently is a
wholly owned subsidiary of Host, but Crestline will become a separate public
company when Host distributes the common stock of Crestline and other
consideration to Host's existing shareholders and the Blackstone entities in
connection with the REIT Conversion. This distribution will be done in
connection with Host's required distribution of its accumulated earnings and
profits in order to qualify as a REIT. Shares of Host REIT and Crestline will
be separately traded securities, and the two companies will operate
independently.
 
  The Limited Partners will not receive any Crestline stock in connection with
the Mergers. The pricing mechanism for the Mergers--which is based upon the
average closing price for Host REIT Common Shares for the 20 trading days
following the Mergers (all of which will be after the Crestline stock has been
distributed)--is designed to ensure that your OP Units are fairly valued after
giving effect to Host's distribution of the Crestline stock to its
shareholders.
 
11. WHAT WILL BE THE TERMS OF THE NOTE IF I ELECT TO RECEIVE A NOTE?
 
  The Notes will be direct, senior unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of
the Operating Partnership. The Notes will mature on December 15, 2005, or
approximately seven years following the Mergers. The Notes will bear interest
at a fixed rate of interest equal to 6.56% per annum. Interest will be payable
in arrears on each June 15 and December 15, commencing on June 15, 1999. The
principal amount of the Notes with respect to each Partnership will be equal
to the Liquidation Value, or if greater, 80% of the Exchange Value for your
Partnership Interest. (See the Answer to Question 1 for these amounts.) For a
table showing the estimated principal amount of the Notes with respect to each
Partnership, on a per Partnership Unit basis, see the Answer to Question 1.
 
12. I CURRENTLY OWN A VERY ILLIQUID INVESTMENT; WILL THIS CHANGE IF I VOTE FOR
    THE MERGER?
 
  Your Partnership Units are relatively illiquid investments. Although there
may be a limited resale market for your Partnership Units, the trading volume
is thin and the recent average trading prices of the outstanding Partnership
Units in each of the Partnerships are less than the estimated Exchange Value
for the Partnership Units. The Merger will offer you liquidity because you can
elect to exchange OP Units received in the Merger for Common Shares. In
addition, if you elect to retain your OP Units following the Mergers, you will
have
 
                                      12

<PAGE>
 
   
the right at any time, commencing one year following the Mergers, to exchange
your OP Units, on a one-for-one basis, for Host REIT Common Shares or the cash
equivalent thereof, at the election of Host REIT.     
 
13. DO ALL EIGHT PARTNERSHIPS NEED TO VOTE "FOR" A MERGER FOR THE TRANSACTION
    INVOLVING MY PARTNERSHIP TO BE COMPLETED?
 
  No. Each Partnership votes individually on the transaction, and no Merger is
conditioned upon the consummation of any other Merger.
   
14. ON PAGE 136 OF THE CONSENT SOLICITATION, HOST ESTIMATES THAT THE
    DISTRIBUTIONS PER OP UNIT DURING 1999 WILL BE APPROXIMATELY $0.84 PER OP
    UNIT (ASSUMING THE MERGER OCCURS IN 1998). IF THIS ESTIMATE IS CORRECT,
    HOW MUCH CASH WOULD A LIMITED PARTNER OWNING ONE PARTNERSHIP UNIT RECEIVE
    FOR 1999, AND HOW DOES THAT COMPARE WITH THE DISTRIBUTION FROM MY
    PARTNERSHIP FOR 1997 AND 1998?     
   
  Based upon preliminary estimates of Host REIT's taxable income for 1999, the
Operating Partnership currently estimates its initial annual distribution will
be approximately $0.84 per OP Unit ($0.21 per quarter) during 1999, a portion
of which may come from borrowings. Distributions are expected to be paid in
January, April, July and October of each year, except that the first
distribution in 1999 is expected to be paid at the end of February if the REIT
Conversion is completed in 1998. The actual amount of cash distributions that
you would receive for 1999 if you were to retain the OP Units issued to you in
the Mergers would depend upon the number of OP Units issued to you in the
Merger with respect to your Partnership Interest. The Answer to Question 1
explains how that number will be determined.     
   
  If Host's preliminary estimate of $226 million of cash distributions by the
Operating Partnership during 1999 proves accurate but the Operating
Partnership's cash available for distribution were only equal to its estimated
cash available for distribution ($163 million) and estimated cash from
contingent rents ($54 million) during 1999, then the Operating Partnership
would be required to borrow approximately $9 million (or $0.04 per OP Unit) to
make such distributions. Moreover, if estimated cash from contingent rents
were less than $54 million, then the Operating Partnership also would be
required to borrow any such shortfall in order to make such distributions.
While the Operating Partnership does not believe this will be necessary, it
believes it would be able to borrow the necessary amounts under its credit
facility or from other sources and that any such borrowing would not have a
material adverse effect on its financial condition or results of operations.
    
                                      13

<PAGE>
 
  The following table sets forth for each Partnership, on a per Partnership
Unit basis, the actual cash distributions made from operations during 1997 and
the actual and expected distribution levels from operations during 1998, as
well as three alternative expected distributions that would be made with
respect to OP Units for 1999 if the Mergers and the REIT Conversion occur
(assuming that the Mergers occur on December 30, 1998), computed assuming that
the OP Units are valued for purposes of the Mergers at $9.50 (the minimum
price), $15.50 (the maximum price), and $12.50 (the midpoint between the
minimum price and the maximum price).

Dear [Partnership] Limited Partner:
 
  As publicly announced in April 1998, Host Marriott Corporation, a Delaware
corporation ("Host"), has adopted a plan to restructure its business
operations so that it will qualify as a real estate investment trust ("REIT")
for federal income tax purposes. As part of the restructuring and related
transactions (the "REIT Conversion"), Host proposes to merge into HMC Merger
Corporation (to be renamed "Host Marriott Corporation"), a Maryland
corporation ("Host REIT"), and thereafter continue and expand its full-service
hotel ownership business. Host REIT will operate through Host Marriott, L.P.,
a Delaware limited partnership (the "Operating Partnership"), of which Host
REIT will be the sole general partner. This is commonly called an "UPREIT"
structure and it is used to facilitate tax-deferred acquisitions of
properties.
 
  In connection with the REIT Conversion, the Operating Partnership is
proposing to acquire     Limited Partnership, a     limited partnership (the
"Partnership"), through a merger (the "Merger")
 of the Partnership with a
subsidiary of the Operating Partnership ("Merger Sub"). As a limited partner
in the Partnership, your written consent is being solicited to approve
 
    (i) the proposed Merger of the Partnership pursuant to the Agreement and
  Plan of Merger, dated as of October 8, 1998 (the "Merger Agreement"), by
  and among Host REIT, the Operating Partnership, Merger Sub and the
  Partnership and the transactions contemplated thereby and
 
    (ii) certain related amendments to the partnership agreement of the
  Partnership intended to facilitate the Merger and the REIT Conversion.
 
  Included in this package are:
 
  .  The Prospectus/Consent Solicitation Statement (the "Consent
     Solicitation");
 
  .  A Supplement that contains specific information with respect to the
     Partnership;
 
  .  A Consent Form (YELLOW) for voting--marked specifically for the
     Partnership;
 
  .  An OP Unit Exchange Election Form (BLUE) and
 
  .  A list of commonly asked Questions and Answers, including telephone
     numbers for assistance.
 
  Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the same meaning given to
them in the enclosed Prospectus/Consent Solicitation Statement (the "Consent
Solicitation").
 
  If the Merger and the amendments are approved and the Merger is consummated,
you will be entitled to receive units of limited partnership interest in the
Operating Partnership ("OP Units") in exchange for your interests in the
Partnership. This generally will be a tax-deferred transaction. The OP Units
are economically equivalent to Host REIT Common Shares. 

  The number of OP Units you will receive will be based upon the Exchange Value
of the Partnership (determined as described in the Consent Solicitation) and the
value of the OP Units, which will be based on the average closing trading price
on the New York Stock Exchange of the Host REIT Common Shares over the first 20
trading days after the Merger (but will not be less than $9.50 or more than
$15.50 per OP Unit).

  Beginning one year after the Merger, you may elect to have your OP Units
exchanged for freely-traded Host REIT Common Shares on a one-for-one basis (or
its cash equivalent, as determined by Host REIT). At your option, you also may
elect, at any time prior to the end of the Election Period (described

<PAGE>
 
below), to exchange all of the OP Units received in the Merger for either an
equal number of Host REIT Common Shares or a 6.56% Callable Note due December
15, 2005 of the Operating Partnership (a "Note") in a principal amount equal
to the Note Election Amount. Exercise of either the Common Share Election or
the Note Election would be a taxable transaction.
 
  The accompanying Consent Solicitation provides detailed information
concerning the proposed Merger and the amendments to the Partnership's
partnership agreement, the reasons for the General Partner's recommendations
in favor of the Merger, information about the Partnership, Host REIT and the
Operating Partnership and certain additional information. WE URGE YOU TO
CAREFULLY CONSIDER ALL OF THE INFORMATION IN THE CONSENT SOLICITATION,
INCLUDING THE INFORMATION SET FORTH UNDER "SUMMARY--RISK FACTORS" BEGINNING ON
PAGE SIX AND "RISK FACTORS" BEGINNING ON PAGE   OF THE CONSENT SOLICITATION
FOR A DESCRIPTION OF THE MATERIAL RISKS OF AN INVESTMENT IN THE OP UNITS,
NOTES OR COMMON SHARES.

  Some of the material risks include the following: (i)
substantial benefits to related partners; (ii) absence of arm's length
negotiations; (iii) other conflicts of interest; (iv) no opportunity to
benefit from Crestline common stock; (v) Exchange Value may not equal fair
market value of the Partnerships' Hotels; (vi) inability of Limited Partners
who retain OP Units to redeem OP Units for one year; (vii) value of the Notes
will be less than the Exchange Value; (viii) election of Common Shares or
Notes is a taxable transaction; (ix) cash distributions may exceed cash
available for distribution; reduced cash distributions for certain Limited
Partners; (x) timing of the REIT Conversion; (xi) fundamental change in nature
of investment; (xii) uncertainties as to the size and leverage of the
Operating Partnership; (xiii) lack of control over hotel operations and Non-
Controlled Subsidiaries; dependence upon Crestline; (xiv) requisite vote of
Limited Partners of the Partnerships binds all Limited Partners; (xv)
inability to obtain third-party consents may have a material adverse effect;
(xvi) exposure to market and economic conditions of other hotels; (xvii)
ownership limitations; (xviii) no limitation on debt; (xix) effect of
subsequent events upon recognition of gain; (xx) sale of personal property may
result in gain to Limited Partners in certain Partnerships; (xxi) failure of
Host REIT to qualify as a REIT for tax purposes; failure of the Operating
Partnership to qualify as a Partnership for tax purposes; and (xxii) change in
tax laws.
 
  The General Partner believes that the Merger provides substantial benefits
to you as a Limited Partner, including: (i) the opportunity to receive regular
cash distributions per OP Unit equal to the distributions paid on each Host
REIT Common Share; (ii) the ability to participate in the operations of a
larger, more diverse enterprise with growth opportunities and generally lower
leverage; (iii) the ability to receive, in exchange for your OP Units, freely
tradeable Host REIT Common Shares in connection with the Merger; (iv) the
ability of Limited Partners who retain OP Units, at any time beginning one
year following the Merger, to liquidate their investment in the Operating
Partnership for cash based upon the price of Host REIT Common Shares or, at
the election of Host REIT, Host REIT Common Shares; and (v) the deferral, for
Limited Partners who retain their OP Units, of recognition of at least a
substantial portion of any built-in taxable gain attributable to their
Partnership Interests generally until such time as each Limited Partner elects
to trigger such gain.
 
  AFTER CAREFUL CONSIDERATION, THE GENERAL PARTNER HAS DETERMINED THAT THE
MERGER IS ADVISABLE FOR AND FAIR TO THE LIMITED PARTNERS AND RECOMMENDS THAT
ALL LIMITED PARTNERS VOTE TO APPROVE THE MERGER AND THE RELATED AMENDMENTS TO
THE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT. IN ORDER TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT THE MERGER IS
APPROVED, A LIMITED PARTNER WHO FAVORS THE MERGER SHOULD VOTE FOR THE MERGER
AND FOR THE AMENDMENTS TO THE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT.
 
  The close of business on September 18, 1998 has been set by [GP ENTITY] (the
"General Partner") as the record date for determining Limited Partners entitled
to vote on the Merger and the related amendments to the partnership agreement.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOUR PARTNERSHIP UNITS BE VOTED, REGARDLESS OF THE NUMBER
OF PARTNERSHIP UNITS YOU HOLD. Therefore, please promptly complete, sign, date
and return the Consent Form (yellow) in the enclosed prepaid envelope as soon as
possible but in any event no later than 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, on December 12,
1998 (the "Solicitation Period"). You may change or revoke your vote during the
Solicitation
