Items 1 & 2. Business and Properties
 
   We are a limited partnership, or the "Operating Partnership," owning full
service hotel properties. Our sole general partner is Host Marriott
Corporation, or "Host REIT," a self-managed and self-administered real estate
investment trust. We were formed as a Delaware limited partnership in 1998 as
a wholly owned subsidiary of Host Marriott Corporation, a Delaware
corporation, in connection with its efforts to reorganize its business
operations to qualify as a real estate investment trust, or "REIT," for
federal income tax purposes. As part of this reorganization, which we refer to
as the REIT conversion, and which is described below in more detail, on
 
                                       1

<PAGE>
 
December 29, 1998, Host Marriott and various of its subsidiaries contributed
substantially all of their assets to us and we assumed substantially all of
their liabilities. As a result, we have succeeded to the hotel ownership
business formerly conducted by Host Marriott. We conduct our business as an
umbrella partnership REIT, or UPREIT, with Host REIT as our sole general
partner. As of December 31, 2000, Host REIT held approximately 78% of our
outstanding partnership interests, which we refer to as OP Units. On February
7, 2001, certain limited partners converted 12.5 million OP Units to Host REIT
common shares and immediately sold them to an underwriter for sale on the open
market. As a result, Host REIT now owns approximately 82% of the Operating
Partnership.
 
   Together with Host REIT, we were formed primarily to continue, in an UPREIT
structure, the full service hotel ownership business formerly conducted by
Host Marriott and its subsidiaries. We use the name Host Marriott to refer to
Host Marriott Corporation, the Delaware corporation, prior to the REIT
conversion. Our primary business objective is to provide superior total
returns to our unitholders through a combination of distributions,
appreciation in net asset value per unit, and growth in funds from operations
per unit, or FFO as defined by the National Association of Real Estate
Investment Trusts (i.e., net income computed in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles, excluding gains or losses from debt
restructuring and sales of properties, plus real estate-related depreciation
and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and
joint ventures), by focusing on aggressive asset management and disciplined
capital allocation. In addition, we endeavor to:
 
  .  maximize the value of our existing portfolio through an aggressive asset
     management program which focuses on selectively improving and expanding
     our hotels;
 
  .  acquire additional existing and newly developed upscale and luxury full
     service hotels in targeted markets primarily focusing on downtown hotels
     in core business districts in major metropolitan markets and select
     airport and resort/convention locations;
 
  .  complete our current development and expansion program, and selectively
     develop and construct new upscale and luxury full service hotels;
 
  .  regenerate capital through opportunistic asset sales and selectively
     dispose of noncore assets;
 
  .  opportunistically pursue other real estate investments.
 
   As of March 12, 2001, we own 122 hotels, containing approximately 58,000
rooms, located throughout the United States and Canada. The hotels are
generally operated under the Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, Hilton,
Hyatt and Swissotel brand names. These brand names are among the most
respected and widely recognized brand names in the lodging industry.
 
   Host REIT, our sole general partner, manages all aspects of our business.
This includes decisions with respect to:
 
  .  sales and purchases of hotels;
 
  .  the financing of the hotels;
 
  .  the leasing of the hotels; and
 
  .  capital expenditures for the hotels subject to the terms of the leases
     and the management agreements.
 
   Host REIT is managed by a Board of Directors and has no employees who are
not also our employees.
 
   Due to certain tax laws restricting REITs from deriving revenues directly
from the operations of hotels, during 1999 and 2000 the hotels were leased by
us to third party lessees, including primarily Crestline Capital Corporation,
or "Crestline", and its subsidiaries, and managed on behalf of the lessees by
nationally recognized hotel operators such as Marriott International, Four
Seasons, Hyatt, Interstate and other companies.
 
   The REIT Modernization Act, which was enacted in December 1999, amended the
tax laws to permit REITs, effective January 1, 2001, (i) to lease hotels to a
subsidiary that qualifies as a taxable REIT subsidiary, or
 
                                       2

<PAGE>
 
"TRS," and (ii) to own all of the voting stock of such TRS. Effective January
1, 2001, we completed a transaction with Crestline for the termination of the
Crestline leases through the purchase of the entities, or "Crestline Lessee
Entities", owning the leasehold interests with respect to 116 of our full-
service hotels by our wholly-owned TRS for $207 million in cash, including
approximately $6 million of legal fees and transfer taxes. In connection
therewith, we recorded a non-recurring, pre-tax loss of $207 million during
the fourth quarter of 2000, net of an $82 million tax benefit which we have
recorded as a deferred tax asset, because for income tax purposes, the
acquisition is recorded as an asset that will be amortized over the remaining
term of the leases. In addition, the existing working capital of the
respective hotels, valued at $90 million as of December 31, 2000, including
the existing obligations under the working capital note, was transferred from
Crestline to the TRS. Crestline remains the lessee of one of our full-service
properties. The transaction simplifies our corporate structure, enables us to
better control our portfolio of hotels, and is expected to be accretive to
future earnings and cash flows, as the lessee entities have recorded
substantial earnings and cash flow in 2000 and 1999, although there can be no
guarantee that such results will continue. The TRS will pay rent to us, and
will be obligated to the managers for the fees and costs reimbursements under
the management agreements. On a consolidated basis, our results of operations
beginning in 2001 will reflect the revenues and expenses generated by these
hotels rather than rental income.
 
   The economic trends affecting the hotel industry and the overall economy
will be a major factor in generating growth in hotel revenues, and the
abilities of the managers will also have a material impact on future hotel
level sales and operating profit growth. Our hotel properties may be impacted
by inflation through its effect on increasing costs, as well as recent
increases in energy costs. Unlike other real estate, hotels have the ability
to change room rates on a daily basis, so the impact of higher inflation often
can be passed on to customers, particularly in the transient segment. However,
an economic downturn may affect the managers' ability to increase room rates.
Through our strategic restructuring of our balance sheet, nearly 95% of our
debt bears interest at fixed rates, which mitigates the impact of rising
interest rates.
 
   We endeavor to selectively acquire upscale and luxury full service hotel
lodging properties that complement our existing portfolio of high-end hotels.
Based upon data provided by Smith Travel Research, we believe that our full
service hotels outperform the industry's average occupancy rate by a
significant margin, averaging 77.5% and 77.7% occupancy for fiscal years 2000
and 1999 compared to a 70.5% and 68.8% average occupancy for our competitive
set for 2000 and 1999, respectively. "Our competitive set" refers to hotels in
the upscale and luxury full service segment of the lodging industry, the
segment which is most representative of our full service hotels, and consists
of Crowne Plaza; Doubletree; Hyatt; Hilton; Radisson; Renaissance; Sheraton;
Westin; and Wyndham.
 
   The relatively high occupancy rates of our hotels, along with increased
demand for full-service hotel rooms, have allowed the managers of our hotels
to increase average daily room rates by selectively raising room rates for
certain types of bookings and by minimizing, in specified cases, discounted
group business, replacing it with higher-rate group and transient business.
For the year ended December 31, 2000, as a percentage of total rooms sold,
transient business comprised 59%, group business comprised 38%, and contract
business comprised less than 3%. As a result, on a comparable basis, room
revenue per available room ("REVPAR") for our full-service properties
increased approximately 6.6% in 2000.
 
   In addition to external growth generated by new acquisitions, we intend to
aggressively manage our existing assets by carefully and periodically
reviewing our portfolio to identify opportunities to selectively enhance
operating performance through major capital improvements.
 
 Business Strategy
 
   Our primary business objective is to provide superior total returns to our
shareholders through a combination of distributions, appreciation in net asset
value per unit, and growth in FFO per unit. In order to achieve this objective
we employ the following strategies:
 
  .  acquire existing upscale and luxury full-service hotels as market
     conditions permit, including Marriott and Ritz-Carlton hotels and other
     hotels operated by leading management companies such as Four
 
                                       3

<PAGE>
 
   Seasons, Hyatt, and Hilton which satisfy our investment criteria, which
   acquisitions may be completed through various means including transactions
   where we are already a partner, public and private portfolio transactions,
   and by entering into joint ventures when we believe our return on
   investment will be maximized by doing so;
 
  .  complete the development of our existing pipeline, including the 295-
     room Ritz-Carlton, Naples, Golf Resort, the 50,000 square-foot spa also
     at the Ritz-Carlton, Naples, and the 200-room expansion of the Memphis
     Marriott, as well as selectively expand existing properties and develop
     new upscale and luxury full-service hotels, operated by leading
     management companies, which satisfy our investment criteria and employ
     transaction structures which mitigate our risk;
 
  .  maximize the value of our existing portfolio through aggressive asset
     management, including completing selective capital improvements and
     expansions that are designed to increase gross hotel sales or improve
     operations; and
 
  .  regenerate capital through opportunistic asset sales and selectively
     dispose of noncore assets, including older assets with significant
     capital needs, assets that are at risk given potential new supply, or
     assets in slower-growth markets.
 
   The availability of suitable acquisition candidates that complement our
portfolio of high-end hotels has been limited recently due to market
conditions. Most products in the market consist of smaller, suburban hotels,
and as many luxury hotel owners are choosing to hold on to their assets at
this time, competition for the limited number of available properties in the
top markets has caused them to be generally not price competitive. However, we
believe that acquisitions that meet our stringent criteria will provide the
highest and best use of our capital as they become available.
 
   Our acquisition strategy focuses on the upscale and luxury full-service
segments of the market, which we believe will continue to offer opportunities
over time to acquire assets at attractive multiples of cash flow and at
discounts to replacement value. Our acquisition criteria continues to focus
on:
 
  .  properties in difficult to duplicate locations with high costs to
     prospective competitors, such as hotels located in urban, airport and
     resort/convention locations;
 
  .  premium brand names, such as Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons,
     Hilton, and Hyatt;
 
  .  underperforming hotels which can be improved by conversion to high
     quality brands; and
 
  .  properties which are operated by leading management companies such as
     Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, Hilton, and Hyatt.
 
   In recent years, we have increased our pool of potential acquisition
candidates to include select non-Marriott and non-Ritz-Carlton branded hotels
which offer long-term growth potential, have high quality managers and are
consistent with the overall quality of our portfolio. For example, in December
1998 we acquired a portfolio of hotels consisting of two Ritz-Carlton, two
Four Seasons, one Grand Hyatt, three Hyatt Regency and four Swissotel
properties.
 
   Our current portfolio of hotels are operated under the Marriott, Ritz-
Carlton, Four Seasons, Hilton, Hyatt and Swissotel brand names. In general,
based upon data provided by Smith Travel Research, we believe that these
premium brands have consistently outperformed the industry. Demonstrating the
strength of our portfolio, our comparable properties, consisting of 118
hotels, owned directly or indirectly by us for the entire 2000 and 1999 fiscal
years, respectively (excluding one property that sustained substantial fire
damage during 2000, two properties where significant expansion at the hotels
affected operations, and the Tampa Waterside Marriott, which opened in
February 2000), generated a 32% and 33% REVPAR premium over our competitive
set for fiscal years 2000 and 1999, respectively.
 
   Based on the strength of our portfolio of premium hotels, management
anticipates that any additional full service properties acquired in the future
and converted from other brands to one of our premium brands should
 
                                       4

<PAGE>
 
achieve increases in occupancy rates and average room rates as the properties
begin to benefit from brand name recognition, and national reservation systems
and group sales organizations. Since the beginning of fiscal year 1994, we
have acquired 15 hotels that we have converted to premium brands.
 
   We believe we are well qualified to pursue our acquisition and development
strategy. Management has extensive experience in acquiring and financing
lodging properties and believes its industry knowledge, relationships and
access to market information provide a competitive advantage with respect to
identifying, evaluating and acquiring hotel assets.
 
   Our asset management team, which is comprised of professionals with
exceptional industry knowledge and relationships, focuses on maximizing the
value of our existing portfolio through (i) monitoring property and brand
performance; (ii) pursuing expansion and repositioning opportunities; (iii)
overseeing capital expenditure budgets and forecasts; (iv) assessing return on
investment expenditure opportunities; and (v) analyzing competitive supply
conditions in each market.
 
   In September 1999, the board of directors of Host REIT approved the
repurchase, from time to time on the open market and/or in privately
negotiated transactions, of up to 22 million of the outstanding shares of Host
REIT's common stock, OP Units, or Host REIT's Convertible Preferred Securities
convertible into a like number of shares of its common stock. Through March
2000, we spent, in the aggregate, approximately $150 million, $62 million in
2000, on repurchases for a total reduction of 16.2 million equivalent units on
a fully diluted basis. We have not made any repurchases since that time, but
will continue to evaluate the repurchase program based on changes in market
conditions and Host REIT's stock price.
 
The REIT Conversion
 
   During 1998, Host Marriott and its subsidiaries and affiliates consummated
a series of transactions in order to qualify as a REIT for federal income tax
purposes. As a result of these transactions, the hotels formerly owned by Host
Marriott and its subsidiaries and other affiliates are now owned by us and our
subsidiaries, we and our subsidiaries leased substantially all of these hotels
to Crestline Capital Corporation, and Marriott International and other hotel
operators conducted the day to day management of the hotels pursuant to
management agreements with Crestline. Host REIT has elected to be treated as a
REIT for federal income tax purposes effective January 1, 1999. The important
transactions comprising the REIT conversion are summarized below.
 
   During 1998, Host Marriott reorganized its hotels and certain other assets
so that they were owned by us and our subsidiaries. Host Marriott and its
subsidiaries received a number of OP Units equal to the number of then
outstanding shares of Host Marriott common stock, and we and our subsidiaries
assumed substantially all of the liabilities of Host Marriott and its
subsidiaries. As a result of this reorganization and the related transactions
described below, Host REIT is our sole general partner and as of December 31,
2000 held approximately 78% of the outstanding OP Units. We and our
subsidiaries conduct the hotel ownership business. OP Units owned by holders
other than Host REIT are redeemable at the option of the holder, generally
commencing one year after the issuance of their OP Units. Upon redemption of
an OP Unit, the holder would receive from us cash in an amount equal to the
market value of one share of Host REIT common stock. However, in lieu of a
cash redemption by us, we have the right to acquire any OP Unit offered for
redemption directly from the holder thereof in exchange for either one share
of Host REIT common stock or cash in an amount equal to the market value of
one share of Host REIT common stock. On February 7, 2001, certain limited
partners converted 12.5 million OP Units to Host REIT common shares and
immediately sold them to an underwriter for sale on the open market. As a
result, Host REIT now owns approximately 82% of the outstanding OP Units.
 
   In connection with the REIT conversion, two taxable corporations were
formed in which we own approximately 95% of the economic interest but none of
the voting interest. We refer to these two subsidiaries as the non-controlled
subsidiaries. The non-controlled subsidiaries hold various assets and related
liabilities totaling $354 million and $245 million, respectively, at December
31, 2000, which were originally contributed by Host Marriott and its
subsidiaries to us, but whose direct ownership by us or our subsidiaries
generally would
 
                                       5

<PAGE>
 
jeopardize Host REIT's status as a REIT and our status as a partnership for
federal income tax purposes. These assets primarily consist of controlling
interests in partnerships or other interests in three full-service hotels
which are not leased, and specified furniture, fixtures and equipment--also
known as FF&E--used in the hotels. We have no control over the operation or
management of the hotels or other assets owned by the non-controlled
subsidiaries. The Host Marriott Statutory Employee/Charitable Trust acquired
all of the voting common stock of each non-controlled subsidiary,
representing, in each case, the remaining approximately 5% of the total
economic interests in each non-controlled subsidiary. The beneficiaries of the
Employee/Charitable Trust are a trust formed for the benefit of specified
employees of the operating partnership and the J. Willard and Alice S.
Marriott Foundation. During February 2001, the Board of Directors of Host REIT
approved the acquisition by our TRS of the interests in the non-controlled
subsidiaries held by the Host Marriott Statutory Employee/Charitable Trust for
approximately $2 million in cash. If the transaction is consummated, and there
can be no assurance that the transaction will be consummated, on a
consolidated basis our results of operations will reflect the revenues and
expenses generated by the two taxable corporations, our consolidated balance
sheets will include various assets and related liabilities held by the two
taxable corporations. Approximately $26 million of the subsidiaries' debt
principal matures during 2001. In addition, we will consolidate three
additional full-service properties, one located in Missouri, and two located
in Mexico City, Mexico.
 
   Under the terms of the leases, the lessees pay rent to us and our
subsidiaries generally equal to the greater of (1) a specified minimum rent or
(2) rent based on specified percentages of different categories of aggregate
sales at the relevant hotels. Generally, there is a separate lessee for each
hotel property or there is a separate lessee for each group of hotel
properties that has separate mortgage financing or has owners in addition to
us and wholly owned subsidiaries. The lessees for all but four of our hotels
are limited liability companies, formerly wholly-owned subsidiaries of
Crestline, each of whose purpose is limited to acting as lessee under an
applicable lease. The limited liability company agreements provide that the
lessee has full control over the management of the business of the lessee,
except with respect to certain decisions for which the consent of other
members or the hotel manager is required. In addition, Marriott International
or its appropriate subsidiary has a non-economic voting interest on specific
matters pertaining to hotels managed by Marriott International or its
subsidiaries.
 
   The leases, through the sales percentage rent provisions, are designed to
allow us and our subsidiaries that own our properties to participate in any
growth above specified levels in room sales at the hotels, which management
expects can be achieved through increases in room rates and occupancy levels.
Although the economic trends affecting the hotel industry will be the major
factor in generating growth in revenues, the abilities of the lessees and the
managers will also have a material impact on future sales growth. In 2001,
with 116 of our full-service hotels leased to our wholly-owned TRS, any
increases in future earnings and cash flows at the hotels will have a direct,
positive effect on our consolidated earnings and cash flows. Our leases have
terms ranging from seven to ten years.
 
   In December 1999, the REIT Modernization Act was enacted, with most
provisions effective for taxable years beginning after December 31, 2000,
which significantly amends the REIT laws applicable to us and Host REIT. Under
the applicable sections of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended by the REIT
Modernization Act, and the corresponding regulations that govern the federal
income tax treatment of REITs and their shareholders, a REIT must meet certain
tests regarding the nature of its income and assets, as follows.
 
   Qualification of an entity as a taxable REIT subsidiary. Beginning January
1, 2001, a REIT is permitted to own up to 100% of the voting stock of one or
more taxable REIT subsidiaries subject to limitations on the value of those
subsidiaries. The rents received from such subsidiaries will not be
disqualified from being "rents from real property" by reason of the operating
partnership's ownership interest in the subsidiary so long as the property is
operated on behalf of the taxable REIT subsidiary by an "eligible independent
contractor." This enables us to lease our hotels to wholly-owned taxable
subsidiaries if the hotels are operated and managed on behalf of such
subsidiaries by an independent third party. Under the REIT Modernization Act,
taxable REIT subsidiaries are subject to federal income tax.
 
   Income tests applicable to REITs. In order to maintain qualification as a
REIT, two gross income requirements must be satisfied on an annual basis.
 
                                       6

<PAGE>
 
  .  At least 75% of gross income, excluding gross income from prohibited
     transactions, must be derived directly or indirectly from investments
     relating to real property, including "rents from real property", gains
     on the disposition of real estate, dividends paid by another REIT and
     interest on obligations secured by mortgages on real property or on
     interests in real property, or from some types of temporary investments.
 
  .  At least 95% of gross income, excluding gross income from prohibited
     transactions, must be derived from any combination of income qualifying
     under the 75% test, dividends, interest, some payments under hedging
     instruments, and gain from the sale or disposition of stock or
     securities, including some hedging instruments.
 
   Rents received from a TRS will qualify as "rents from real property" as
long as the leases are true leases and the property is a qualified lodging
facility operated by an eligible independent contractor. If rent attributable
to personal property leased in connection with a lease of real property is
greater than 15% of the total rent received under the lease (based on relative
fair market values), then the portion of rent attributable to such personal
property will not qualify as "rents from real property."
 
   Asset tests applicable to REITs. At the close of each quarter of its
taxable year, a REIT must satisfy four tests relating to the nature of its
assets.
 
  .  At least 75% of the value of total assets must be represented by real
     estate assets. Our real estate assets include, for this purpose, our
     allocable share of real estate assets held by the operating partnership
     and its non-corporate subsidiaries, as well as stock or debt instruments
     held for less than one year purchased with the proceeds of a stock or
     long-term debt offering, cash and government securities.
 
  .  No more than 25% of total assets may be represented by securities other
     than those in the 75% asset class.
 
  .  Of the investments included in the 25% asset class, the value of any one
     issuer's securities may not exceed 5% of total assets, and a REIT may
     not own more than 10% of either the outstanding voting securities or the

Recent Acquisitions, Developments and Dispositions
 
   The pace of acquisitions changed significantly in 2000 and 1999 from the
previous years. After three years of acquisitions numbering 36, 17, and 24
full service hotels for 1998, 1997 and 1996, respectively, our recent
acquisitions were limited due to the availability of suitable acquisition
candidates that complement our portfolio of high-end hotels, increased price
competition and capital limitations due to weak equity markets for REIT
stocks. We believe that acquisitions that meet our stringent criteria will
provide the highest and best use of our capital. Future acquisitions are
likely to be either public or private portfolio transactions, and transactions
where we already hold minority partnership interests. In addition, we believe
we can successfully add properties to our portfolio through partnership
arrangements with either the seller of the property or the incoming managers.
 
   During 2000, we acquired a non-controlling partnership interest in the 772-
room J.W. Marriott Hotel in Washington, D.C. in which we already held a 17%
limited partner interest for $40 million and have the option to purchase an
additional 44% limited partnership interest. During 1999, our acquisitions
were limited to the acquisition of minority interests in two hotels, where we
had previously acquired the controlling interests, for a total consideration
of approximately $14 million. We have the financial flexibility and, due to
our existing private partnership investment portfolio, the administrative
infrastructure in place to accommodate such arrangements. We view this ability
as a competitive advantage and expect to enter into similar arrangements to
acquire additional properties in the future.
 
                                       7

   Also during 2000, we, through our affiliates, formed a joint venture with
Marriott International, the "Courtyard Joint Venture," to acquire the
partnership interests in Courtyard by Marriott Limited Partnership and
Courtyard by Marriott II Limited Partnership for an aggregate payment of
approximately $372 million plus interest and legal fees, of which we paid
approximately $79 million. The Courtyard Joint Venture acquired 120 Courtyard
by Marriott properties totaling 17,554 rooms. The joint venture financed the
acquisition with mezzanine indebtedness borrowed from Marriott International
and with cash and other assets contributed by our affiliates and Marriott
International. The investment was consummated pursuant to a litigation
settlement involving the two limited partnerships, in which we, through our
affiliates, served as general partner, rather than as a strategic initiative.
 
   During 2000, we focused our energies on increasing the value of our current
portfolio with selective investments, expansions and new developments. We plan
to complete our current pipeline of development activity, and selectively
expand existing properties and develop new upscale and luxury full-service
hotels that complement our quality portfolio in the future. We intend to
target only development projects that show promise of providing financial
returns that represent a premium to returns from acquisitions. The largest of
our recent development projects has been the construction of a 717-room full
service Marriott hotel adjacent to the convention center in downtown Tampa,
Florida. The hotel, which was completed and opened for business on February
19, 2000, includes 45,000 square feet of meeting space, three restaurants and
a 30 slip marina as well as many other amenities. The total development cost
of the property was approximately $104 million, excluding a $16 million tax
subsidy provided by the City of Tampa.
 
   At the Orlando Marriott, the addition of a 500-room tower and 15,000 square
feet of meeting space was placed in service in June 2000 at an approximate
development cost of $88 million, making it the largest hotel in the Marriott
system with 2000 rooms. We also have renovated the golf course, added a multi-
level parking deck, and upgraded and expanded several restaurants.
 
   Also under development is a 50,000 square-foot world-class spa at the Ritz-
Carlton, Naples, at an estimated development cost of $23 million, scheduled
for completion in March 2001. A 295-room Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples is
in process approximately 2 miles from the Ritz-Carlton, Naples, at an
estimated development cost of $75 million, with expected completion during the
fourth quarter of 2001. The golf resort will also host 15,000 square-feet of
meeting space, four food and beverage outlets, and full access to 36 holes of
a Greg Norman designed golf course surrounding the hotel. The newly created
golf resort, as well as the new spa facility will operate in concert with the
463-room Ritz-Carlton, Naples and on a combined basis will offer travelers an
unmatched resort experience. Further, given the close proximity of the
properties to each other, we will benefit from cost efficiencies and the
ability to capture larger groups.
 
   We expect to begin a 200-room expansion of the Memphis Marriott, which is
located adjacent to a newly-renovated convention center. The property was
converted to the Marriott brand upon acquisition in 1998 to capitalize on
Marriott's brand name recognition. The project is expected to be completed in
2002 at a total development cost of approximately $16 million.
 
   Also during 2000, we focused on aggressively managing our existing assets,
including completing approximately $21 million in projects that are expected
to provide internal rates of return in excess of 24%. Major projects completed
during the year include a renovation of the guest rooms and public space at
the Boston Marriott Newton, a conversion of a rooftop ballroom to high-end
catering and meeting space at the Marina Beach Marriott, and a conversion of
lounge space to flexible meeting space at the Ft. Lauderdale Marina Marriott.
 
   We also accomplished various projects to enhance revenues, control
expenses, and enhance technology at the hotels. During 2000, we added
approximately 36,000 square feet of meeting space and 200 premium-priced rooms
to the portfolio, and approved new parking contracts at four of our
properties. We authorized utility conservation efforts including energy
management strategies at five properties, the closing of several unprofitable
food and beverage outlets, and the development of a program to review labor
models. We also approved internet
 
                                       8

<PAGE>
 
connectivity solutions and in-room portal and entertainment options to better
meet the technology needs of our customers.
 
   Through subsidiaries we currently own four Canadian properties, with 1,636
rooms. International acquisitions are limited due to the difficulty in meeting
our stringent return criteria. However, we intend to continue to evaluate
acquisition opportunities in Canada and other international locations. The
overbuilding and economic stress experienced in some European and Pacific Rim
countries may eventually lead to additional international acquisition
opportunities. We will acquire international properties only when we believe
such acquisitions achieve satisfactory returns after adjustments for currency
and country risks.
 
   We will also consider from time to time selling hotels that do not fit our
long-term strategy, or otherwise meet our ongoing investment criteria,
including for example, hotels in some suburban locations, hotels that require
significant future capital improvement and other underperforming assets. The
net proceeds from any such sales will be reinvested in upscale and luxury
hotels more consistent with our strategy or otherwise applied in a manner
consistent with our investment strategy (which may include the purchase of
securities) at the time of sale. We did not dispose of any hotels during 2000.

Hotel Lodging Industry
 
   The lodging industry posted moderate gains in 2000 and 1999 as higher
average daily rates drove strong increases in REVPAR, which measures daily
room revenues generated on a per room basis. This does not include food and
beverage or other ancillary revenues generated by the property. REVPAR
represents the product of the average daily room rate charged and the average
daily occupancy achieved. Previously, the upper upscale sector of the lodging
industry benefited from a favorable supply/demand imbalance, driven in part by
low construction levels combined with high gross domestic product, or GDP,
growth. However, during 1998 through 2000, supply moderately outpaced demand,
causing slight declines in occupancy rates in the sector in which we operate.
 
   According to Smith Travel Research, occupancy in our brands' competitive
set consisting of Crowne Plaza; Doubletree; Hyatt; Hilton; Radisson;
Renaissance; Sheraton; Westin; and Wyndham increased 2.5% for the year ended
December 31, 2000. Within our competitive set, the slight increase in
occupancy during 2000 was reinforced by a 5.0% increase in average daily rate
which generated a 7.4% increase in REVPAR.
 
   The current amount of excess supply growth in the upper-upscale and luxury
portions of the full-service segment of the lodging industry is beginning to
moderate and has been much less severe than that experienced in the lodging
industry in other economic downturns, in part because of the greater financial
discipline and lending practices imposed by financial institutions and public
markets today relative to those during the late 1980's.
 
   The occupancy rates and average daily rates commanded by our properties
have exceeded both the industry as a whole and the upper-upscale and luxury
full service segment. The attractive locations of our hotels, the limited
availability of new building sites for new construction of competing full
service hotels, and the lack of availability of financing for new full service
hotels has allowed us to maintain REVPAR and average daily rate premiums over
our competitors in these service segments. For our comparable hotels, average
daily rates increased 6.3% in 2000. The increase in average daily rate helped
generate a strong increase in comparable hotel
 
                                       9

<PAGE>
 
REVPAR of 6.6% for the same period. Furthermore, because our lodging
operations have a high fixed-cost component, increases in REVPAR generally
yield greater percentage increases in our earnings and cash flows. As a result
of our acquisition of the Crestline Lessee Entities with respect to 116 of our
full-service hotels, effective January 1, 2001 any change in earnings and cash
flow levels at those properties (which formerly were leased to Crestline) will
have a direct effect on our consolidated earnings and cash flows.
 
   The relative balance between supply and demand growth may be influenced by
a number of factors including growth of the economy, interest rates, unique
local considerations and the relatively long lead time to develop urban,
convention and resort hotels. We believe that growth in room supply in upper-
upscale sector in which we operate will continue to exceed room demand growth
through 2001. However, we believe that during 2001 and 2002, supply growth
will begin to decrease, as the lack of availability of development financing
slows new construction. We further believe that demand growth will begin to
increase during 2001 and 2002. However, some economists are predicting an
economic slowdown in 2001, which could lead to substantial decreases in
demand. There can be no assurance that growth in supply will decrease, or that
REVPAR and EBITDA will continue to improve.
 
Hotel Lodging Properties
 
   Our lodging portfolio, as of March 12, 2001, consists of 122 upscale and
luxury full service hotels containing approximately 58,000 rooms. Our hotel
lodging properties represent quality upscale and luxury assets in the full
service segment. Our hotel properties are currently operated under various
premium brands including Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, Hilton, Hyatt,
and Swissotel brand names.
 
   Our hotels average approximately 478 rooms. Thirteen of our hotels have
more than 750 rooms. Hotel facilities typically include meeting and banquet
facilities, a variety of restaurants and lounges, swimming pools, gift shops
and parking facilities. Our hotels primarily serve business and pleasure
travelers and group meetings at locations in urban, airport, resort convention
and suburban locations throughout the United States. The properties are
generally well situated in locations where there are significant barriers to
entry by competitors including downtown areas of major metropolitan cities, at
airports and resort/convention locations where there are limited or no
development sites. The average age of the properties is 17 years, although
many of the properties have had substantial renovations or major additions.
 
   To maintain the overall quality of our lodging properties, each property
undergoes refurbishments and capital improvements on a regularly scheduled
basis. Typically, refurbishing has been provided at intervals of five years,
based on an annual review of the condition of each property. For fiscal years
2000, 1999 and 1998 we spent $230 million, $197 million and $165 million,
respectively, on capital improvements to existing properties. As a result of
these expenditures, we expect to maintain high quality rooms, restaurants and
meeting facilities at our properties.
 
   In addition to acquiring and maintaining superior assets, a key part of our
strategy is to have the hotels managed by leading management companies. As of
March 12, 2001, 100 of our 122 hotel properties were managed by subsidiaries
of Marriott International as Marriott or Ritz-Carlton brand hotels and an
additional nine hotels are part of Marriott International's full-service hotel
system through franchise agreements. The remaining hotels are managed by
leading management companies including Four Seasons, Hilton, and Hyatt. Our
properties have reported annual increases in REVPAR since 1993. Based upon
data provided by Smith Travel Research, our comparable properties, as
previously defined, have an approximate 5 and 6 percentage point occupancy
premium and an approximate 32% and 33% REVPAR premium over the competitive set
for fiscal years 2000 and 1999, respectively.

   Prior to 1997, we divested certain limited-service hotel properties through
the sale and leaseback of 53 Courtyard properties and 18 Residence Inn
properties. The Courtyard and Residence Inn properties are subleased to
subsidiaries of Crestline under sublease agreements and are managed by
Marriott International under long-term management agreements. During 2000,
limited-service properties represented less than 1% of our EBITDA
from hotel properties. Lease revenues for the 71 properties that we sub-lease
are reflected in our revenues in 2000 and 1999, while gross property-level
sales were reflected previous to that.
 
   During 2000, the Courtyard Joint Venture, which was formed by us (through
our non-controlled subsidiary) and Marriott International, acquired the
partnership interests in Courtyard by Marriott Limited Partnership and
Courtyard by Marriott II Limited Partnership, which collectively own 120
Courtyard by Marriott properties totaling 17,554 rooms. We own, through our
affiliates, a 50% non-controlling interest in the joint venture.

(1)   The land on which this hotel is built is leased under one or more long-
      term lease agreements.
(2)   This property is not wholly owned by the operating partnership.
(3)   This property is not leased to our TRS.
 
Investments in Affiliated Partnerships
 
   We also maintain investments in several partnerships that own hotel
properties. Typically, we and certain of our subsidiaries manage our
partnership investments and through a combination of general and limited
partnership interests, conduct the partnership services business. As
previously discussed, during 2000 we acquired a non-controlling interest in
the partnership that owns the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Washington, D.C. In
connection with the REIT conversion, Rockledge Hotel Properties and Fernwood
Hotel Assets were formed as non-controlled subsidiaries to hold various
assets, the direct ownership of which by us or the operating partnership could
jeopardize Host REIT's status as a REIT or our treatment as a partnership for
federal income tax purposes. As of December 31, 2000, substantially all of our
general and limited partner interests in partnerships owning 208 limited-
service properties (including nearly all of our interests in the Courtyard
Joint Venture) and four full-service hotels were held by our two non-
controlled subsidiaries.
 
   The partnership hotels are currently operated under management agreements
with Marriott International or its subsidiaries. As the general partner, we
oversee and monitor Marriott International and its subsidiaries' performance
pursuant to these agreements. Additionally, we are responsible for the payment
of partnership obligations from partnership funds, preparation of financial
reports and tax returns and communications with lenders, limited partners and
regulatory bodies. As the general partner, we are reimbursed for the cost of
providing these services subject to limitations in certain cases. Cash
distributions provided from these partnerships are tied to the overall
performance of the underlying properties and the overall level of debt.
Distributions from these partnerships to us were $1.3 million in 2000 and $2
million in 1998. There were no distributions in 1999. All debt of these
partnerships is nonrecourse to us and our subsidiaries, except that we are
contingently liable under various guarantees of debt obligations of certain of
the limited-service partnerships.
 
Marketing
 
   As of March 1, 2001, 100 of our 122 hotel properties are managed by
subsidiaries of Marriott International as Marriott or Ritz-Carlton brand
hotels and an additional nine hotels are part of Marriott International's
full-service hotel system through franchise agreements. The remaining hotels
are managed primarily by Four Seasons, Hilton, Hyatt, and Swissotel.
 
                                      13

<PAGE>
 
   We believe that our properties will continue to enjoy competitive
advantages arising from their participation in the Marriott, Ritz-Carlton,
Four Seasons, Hilton, Hyatt and Swissotel hotel systems. The national
marketing programs and reservation systems of each of these managers, as well
as the advantages of strong customer preference for these upper-upscale and
luxury brands should also help these properties to maintain or increase their
premium over competitors in both occupancy and room rates. Repeat guest
business is enhanced by guest rewards programs offered by Marriott, Ritz-
Carlton, Hilton, Hyatt, and Swissotel. Each of the managers maintains national
reservation systems that provide reservation agents with complete descriptions
of the rooms available and up-to-date rate information from the properties.
Our website (www.hostmarriott.com) currently permits users to connect to the
Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, Hilton, Hyatt, and Swissotel reservation
systems to reserve rooms in our hotels.
 
Competition
 
   Our hotels compete with several other major lodging brands in each segment
in which they operate. Competition in the industry is based primarily on the
level of service, quality of accommodations, convenience of locations and room
rates. Although the competitive position of each of our hotel properties
differs from market to market, we believe that our properties compare
favorably to their competitive set in the markets in which they operate on the
basis of these factors. The following table presents key participants in
segments of the lodging industry in which we compete:

Seasonality
 
   Our hotel revenues have traditionally experienced significant seasonality.
Additionally, hotel revenues in the fourth quarter reflect sixteen weeks of
results compared to twelve weeks for the first three quarters of the fiscal
year. Average hotel sales by quarter over the years 1998 through 2000 for our
lodging properties are as follows:

Other Real Estate Investments
 
   We have lease and sublease activity relating primarily to Host Marriott's
former restaurant operations. Additionally, we have lease activity related to
certain office space that we own in Atlanta, Chicago, and San Francisco which
is included in other revenues in our statements of operations.
 
Employees
 
   Currently, we have approximately 201 management employees, and
approximately 14 other employees who are covered by a collective bargaining
agreement that is subject to review and renewal on a regular basis. We believe
that we and our managers have good relations with labor unions and have not
experienced any material business interruptions as a result of labor disputes.
 
Environmental and Regulatory Matters
 
   Under various federal, state and local environmental laws, ordinances and
regulations, a current or previous owner or operator of real property may be
liable for the costs of removal or remediation of hazardous or toxic
 
                                      14

<PAGE>
 
substances on, under or in such property. Such laws may impose liability
whether or not the owner or operator knew of, or was responsible for, the
presence of such hazardous or toxic substances. In addition, certain
environmental laws and common law principles could be used to impose liability
for release of asbestos-containing materials, and third parties may seek
recovery from owners or operators of real properties for personal injury
associated with exposure to released asbestos-containing materials.
Environmental laws also may impose restrictions on the manner in which
property may be used or business may be operated, and these restrictions may
require expenditures. In connection with our current or prior ownership or
operation of hotels, we may be potentially liable for any such costs or
liabilities. Although we are currently not aware of any material environmental
claims pending or threatened against us, we can offer no assurance that a
material environmental claim will not be asserted against us.
 
The Management Agreements
 
   All of our hotels are subject to management agreements for the operation of
the properties. The original terms of the management agreements are generally
15 to 20 years in length with multiple optional renewal terms. The following
is a brief summary of the general terms of the management agreements a form of
which has been filed with the Commission.
 
   The lessees lease the hotels from us or our subsidiaries. Upon leasing the
hotels, the lessees assumed substantially all of the obligations of such
subsidiaries under the management agreements between those entities and other
companies that currently manage the hotels. As a result of their assumptions
of obligations under the management agreements, the lessees have substantially
all of the rights and obligations of the "owners" of the hotels under the
management agreements for the period during which the leases are in effect
(including the obligation to pay the management fees and other fees
thereunder) and hold the lessor harmless with respect thereto. The lessors
remain liable for all obligations under the management agreements. As
previously discussed, effective January 1, 2001, the lessor leases 116 of our
full-service hotels to subsidiaries of a wholly-owned TRS. Therefore, through
our wholly-owned subsidiary, we have assumed the rights and obligations of the
"owners" under the management agreements with respect to the 116 hotels.
 
  .   General. Under each management agreement the manager provides complete
      management services to the applicable lessees in connection with its
      management of such lessee's hotels.
 
  .   Operational services. The managers are responsible for the activities
      necessary for the day-to-day operation of the hotels, including
      establishment of all room rates, the processing of reservations,
      procurement of inventories, supplies and services, periodic inspection
      and consultation visits to the hotels by the managers' technical and
      operational experts and promotion and publicity of the hotels. The
      manager receives compensation from the lessee in the form of a base
      management fee and an incentive management fee, which are normally
      calculated as percentages of gross revenues and operating profits,
      respectively.
 
  .     Executive supervision and management services. The managers provide
      all managerial and other employees for the hotels; review the operation
      and maintenance of the hotels; prepare reports, budgets and
      projections; provide other administrative and accounting support
      services, such as planning and policy services, financial planning,
      divisional financial services, risk planning services, product planning
      and development, employee planning, corporate executive management,
      legislative and governmental representation and certain in-house legal
      services; and protect trademarks, trade-names and service marks. The
      manager also provides a national reservations system.
 
  .   Chain services. The management agreements require the manager to
      furnish chain services that are furnished generally on a central or
      regional basis. Such services include: (1) the development and
      operation of computer systems and reservation services, (2)
      administrative services, marketing and sales services, training
      services, manpower development and relocation costs of personnel and
      (3) such additional central services as may from time to time be more
      efficiently performed on a group level. Costs and expenses incurred in
      providing such services are required to be allocated among all hotels
      managed by the manager or its affiliates and each applicable lessee is
      required to reimburse the manager for its allocable share of such costs
      and expenses.
 
                                      15

<PAGE>
 
  .   Working capital and fixed asset supplies. The lessee is required to
      maintain working capital for each hotel and fund the cost of fixed
      asset supplies, which principally consist of linen and similar items.
      The applicable lessee also is responsible for providing funds to meet
      the cash needs for the operations of the hotels if at any time the
      funds available from operations are insufficient to meet the financial
      requirements of the hotels.
 
  .   Use of affiliates. The manager employs the services of its affiliates
      to provide certain services under the management agreements.
 
   FF&E replacements. The management agreements generally provide that once
each year the manager will prepare a list of FF&E to be acquired and certain
routine repairs that are normally capitalized to be performed in the next year
and an estimate of the funds necessary therefor. Under the terms of the
leases, the lessor is required to provide to the applicable lessee all
necessary FF&E for the operation of the hotels (including funding any required
FF&E replacements). For purposes of funding the FF&E replacements, a specified
percentage (generally 5%) of the gross revenues of the hotel is deposited by
the manager into a book entry account. These amounts are treated under the
leases as paid by the lessees to the lessor and will be credited against their
rental obligations.
 
   Under each lease, the lessor is responsible for the costs of FF&E
replacements and for decisions with respect thereto (subject to its
obligations to the lessee under the lease).
 
  .   Building alterations, improvements and renewals. The management
      agreements require the manager to prepare an annual estimate of the
      expenditures necessary for major repairs, alterations, improvements,
      renewals and replacements to the structural, mechanical, electrical,
      heating, ventilating, air conditioning, plumbing and vertical
      transportation elements of each hotel. Such estimate must be submitted
      to the lessor and the lessee for their approval. In addition to the
      foregoing, the management agreements generally provide that the manager
      may propose such changes, alterations and improvements to the hotel as
      are required, in the manager's reasonable judgment, to keep the hotel
      in a competitive, efficient and economical operating condition or in
      accordance with Marriott standards. The cost of the foregoing is paid
      from the FF&E reserve account; to the extent that there are
      insufficient funds in such account, the lessor is required to pay any
      shortfall.
 
  .   Service marks. During the term of the management agreements, the
      service mark, symbols and logos currently used by the manager and its
      affiliates, may be used in the operation of the hotels. Marriott
      International, Four Seasons, Hilton, Hyatt, and Swissotel intend to
      retain their legal ownership of these marks. Any right to use the
      service marks, logo and symbols and related trademarks at a hotel will
      terminate with respect to that hotel upon termination of the management
      agreement with respect to such hotel.
 
  .   Termination fee. Certain of the management agreements provide that if
      the management agreement is terminated prior to its full term due to
      casualty, condemnation or the sale of the hotel, the manager would
      receive a termination fee as specified in the specific management
      agreement. Under the leases, the responsibility for the payment of any
      such termination fee as between the lessee and the lessor depends upon
      the cause for such termination.
 
  .   Termination for failure to perform. Most of the management agreements
      may be terminated based upon a failure to meet certain financial
      performance criteria, subject to the manager's right to prevent such
      termination by making specified payments to the lessee based upon the
      shortfall in such criteria.
 
  .   Assignment of management agreements. The management agreements
      applicable to each hotel have been assigned to the applicable lessee
      for the term of the lease of such hotel. As previously discussed,
      virtually all of our full-service hotels were leased to Crestline
      during 1999 and 2000, and are now leased to subsidiaries of our wholly-
      owned TRS as a result of our acquisition of the Crestline Lessee
      Entities during January 2001. The lessee is obligated to perform all of
      the obligations of the lessor under the management agreement during the
      term of its lease, other than specified retained obligations including,
      without limitation, payment of real property taxes, property casualty
      insurance and ground rent, and maintaining a reserve fund for FF&E
      replacements and capital expenditures, for which the lessor retains
 
                                      16

<PAGE>
 
   responsibility. Although the lessee has assumed obligations of the lessor
   under the management agreement, the lessor is not released from its
   obligations and, if the lessee fails to perform any obligations, the
   manager will be entitled to seek performance by or damages from the
   lessor. If the lease is terminated for any reason, any new or successor
   lessee must meet certain requirements for an approved lessee or otherwise
   be acceptable to the manager.
 
Non-competition agreements
 
   We agreed with Crestline that until December 31, 2003, we would not
purchase, finance or otherwise invest in senior living communities, or act as
an agent or consultant with respect to any of the foregoing activities, except
for acquisitions of communities which represent an immaterial portion of a
merger or similar transaction or for minimal portfolio investments in other
entities. In connection with the acquisition of the Crestline Lessee Entities,
the non-competition agreement was terminated effective January 1, 2001 and
thereafter.
 
   We agreed with Marriott International that until June 21, 2007, we would
not operate, manage or franchise (as franchisor) senior living facilities or
invest, finance or act as an agent or consultant with respect to any of the
foregoing activities, except for acquisitions of entities engaged in such
operating, management or franchising activities if such activities are
terminated or divested within 12 months of such acquisition or for minimal
portfolio investments in such entities and except for operating or managing
senior living facilities for a transitional period or up to 12 months in
connection with a change in the operator or manager of such facility.
 
Risk Factors
 
   The following risk factors should be carefully considered by prospective
investors.
 
Risks relating to redemption of OP Units
 
   A holder who redeems OP Units may have adverse tax effects. A holder of OP
Units who redeems OP Units will be treated for tax purposes as having sold the
OP Units. The sale will be taxable and the holder will be treated as realizing
an amount equal to the sum of the value of the common stock or cash the holder
receives plus the amount of operating partnership nonrecourse liabilities
allocable to the redeemed OP Units. It is possible that the amount of gain the
holder recognizes could exceed the value of the common stock the holder
receives. It is even possible that the tax liability resulting from this gain
could exceed the value of the common stock or cash the holder receives.
 
   If a holder of OP Units redeems OP Units, the original receipt of the OP
Units may be subject to tax. If a holder of OP Units redeems OP Units,
particularly within two years of receiving them, there is a risk that the
original receipt of the OP Units may be treated as a taxable sale under the
"disguised sale" rules of the Internal Revenue Code. Subject to several
exceptions, the tax law generally provides that a partner's contribution of
property to a partnership and a simultaneous or subsequent transfer of money
or other consideration from the partnership to the partner will be presumed to
be a taxable sale. In particular, if money or other consideration is
transferred by a partnership to a partner within two years of the partner's
contribution of property, the transactions are presumed to be a taxable sale
of the contributed property unless the facts and circumstances clearly
establish that the transfers are not a sale. On the other hand, if two years
have passed between the original contribution of property and the transfer of
money or other consideration, the transactions will not be presumed to be a
taxable sale unless the facts and circumstances clearly establish that they
should be.
 
   Differences between an investment in shares of common stock and OP Units
may affect redeeming holders of OP Units. If a holder of OP Units elects to
redeem OP Units, we will determine whether the holder receives cash or shares
of our common stock in exchange for the OP Units. Although an investment in
shares of our common stock is substantially similar to an investment in OP
Units, there are some differences between
 
                                      17

<PAGE>
 
ownership of OP Units and ownership of common stock. These differences include
form of organization, management structure, voting rights, liquidity and
federal income taxation, some of which may be material to investors.
 
   There are possible differing fiduciary duties of Host Marriott, as the
general partner, and the Board of Directors of Host Marriott. Host Marriott,
as the general partner of the operating partnership, and the Board of
Directors of Host Marriott, respectively, owe fiduciary duties to their
constituent owners. Although some courts have interpreted the fiduciary duties
of the Board of Directors in the same way as the duties of a general partner
in a limited partnership, it is unclear whether, or to what extent, there are
differences in such fiduciary duties. It is possible that the fiduciary duties
of the directors of Host Marriott to the shareholders may be less than those
of Host Marriott, as the general partner of the operating partnership, to the
holders of OP Units.
 
Risks of ownership of Host REIT common stock
 
   There are limitations on the acquisition of Host REIT common stock and
changes in control. The charter and bylaws of Host REIT, our partnership
agreement, Host REIT's shareholder rights plan and the Maryland General
Corporation Law contain a number of provisions that could delay, defer or
prevent a transaction or a change in control of Host REIT that might involve a
premium price for Host REIT's shareholders or otherwise be in their best
interests, including the following:
 
     Ownership limit. The 9.8% ownership limit described under "--There are
  possible adverse consequences of limits on ownership of our common stock"
  below may have the effect of precluding a change in control of Host REIT by
  a third party without the consent of Host REIT's Board of Directors, even
  if such change in control would be in the interest of Host REIT's
  shareholders, and even if such change in control would not reasonably
  jeopardize Host REIT's REIT status.
 
     Staggered board. Host REIT's charter provides that Host REIT's Board of
  Directors will consist of nine members and can be increased or decreased
  after that according to Host REIT's bylaws, provided that the total number
  of directors is not less than three nor more than 13. Pursuant to Host
  REIT's bylaws, the number of directors will be fixed by Host REIT's Board
  of Directors within the limits in Host REIT's charter. Host REIT's Board of
  Directors is divided into three classes of directors. Directors for each
  class are chosen for a three-year term when the term of the current class
  expires. The staggered terms for directors may affect Host REIT
  shareholders' ability to effect a change in control of Host REIT, even if a
  change in control would be in the interest of Host REIT's shareholders.
  Currently, there are nine directors.
 
     Removal of board of directors. Host REIT's charter provides that, except
  for any directors who may be elected by holders of a class or series of
  shares of capital stock other than Host REIT's common stock, directors may
  be removed only for cause and only by the affirmative vote of Host REIT
  shareholders holding at least two-thirds of Host REIT's outstanding shares
  entitled to be cast for the election of directors. Vacancies on the Board
  of Directors may be filled by the concurring vote of a majority of the
  remaining directors and, in the case of a vacancy resulting from the
  removal of a director by the shareholders, by at least two-thirds of all
  the votes entitled to be cast in the election of directors.
 
     Preferred shares; classification or reclassification of unissued shares
  of capital stock without shareholder approval. Host REIT's charter provides
  that the total number of shares of stock of all classes which Host REIT has
  authority to issue is 800,000,000, initially consisting of 750,000,000
  shares of common stock and 50,000,000 shares of preferred stock, of which
  8,160,000 have been issued. Host REIT's Board of Directors has the
  authority, without a vote of its shareholders, to classify or reclassify
  any unissued shares of stock, including common stock into preferred stock
  or vice versa, and to establish the preferences and rights of any preferred
  or other class or series of shares to be issued. The issuance of preferred
  shares or other shares having special preferences or rights could delay or
  prevent a change in control even if a change in control would be in the
  interests of Host REIT's shareholders. Because Host REIT's Board of
  Directors has the power to establish the preferences and rights of
  additional classes or series of shares without a shareholder vote, Host
  REIT's Board of Directors may give the holders of any class or series
  preferences, powers and rights, including voting rights, senior to the
  rights of holders of Host REIT's common stock.
 
                                      18

     Consent rights of the limited partners. Under our partnership agreement,
  Host REIT generally will be able to merge or consolidate with another
  entity with the consent of partners holding percentage interests that are
  more than 50% of the aggregate percentage interests of the outstanding
  limited partnership interests entitled to vote on the merger or
  consolidation, including any limited partnership interests held by Host
  REIT, as long as the holders of limited partnership interests either
  receive or have the right to receive the same consideration as Host REIT
  shareholders. Host REIT, as holder of a majority of the limited partnership
  interests, would be able to control the vote. Under Host REIT's charter,
  holders of at least two-thirds of Host REIT's outstanding shares of common
  stock generally must approve the merger or consolidation.
 
     Maryland business combination law. Under the Maryland General
  Corporation Law, specified "business combinations," including specified
  issuances of equity securities, between a Maryland corporation and any
  person who owns 10% or more of the voting power of the corporation's then
  outstanding shares, or an "interested shareholder," or an affiliate of the
  interested shareholder are prohibited for five years after the most recent
  date in which the interested shareholder becomes an interested shareholder.
  Thereafter, any such business combination must be approved by 80% of
  outstanding voting shares, and by two-thirds of voting shares other than
  voting shares held by an interested shareholder unless, among other
  conditions, the corporation's common shareholders receive a minimum price,
  as defined in the Maryland General Corporation Law, for their shares and
  the consideration is received in cash or in the same form as previously
  paid by the interested shareholder. Host REIT is subject to the Maryland
  business combination statute.
 
     Maryland control share acquisition law. Under the Maryland General
  Corporation Law, "control shares" acquired in a "control share acquisition"
  have no voting rights except to the extent approved by a vote of two-thirds
  of the votes entitled to be cast on the matter, excluding shares owned by
  the acquiror and by officers or directors who are employees of the
  corporation. "Control shares" are voting shares which, if aggregated with
  all other such shares previously acquired by the acquiror or in respect of
  which the acquiror is able to exercise or direct the exercise of voting
  power (except solely by virtue of a revocable proxy), would entitle the
  acquiror to exercise voting power in electing directors within one of the
  following ranges of voting power: (1) one-fifth or more but less than one-
  third, (2) one-third or more but less than a majority or (3) a majority or
  more of the voting power. Control shares do not include shares the
  acquiring person is then entitled to vote as a result of having previously
  obtained shareholder approval. A "control share acquisition" means the
  acquisition of control shares, subject to specified exceptions. Host REIT
  is subject to these control share provisions of Maryland law, subject to an
  exemption for Marriott International pursuant to its purchase right. See
  "Risks of ownership of our common stock--Marriott International purchase
  right."
 
     Merger, consolidation, share exchange and transfer of Host REIT's
  assets. Pursuant to Host REIT's charter, subject to the terms of any
  outstanding class or series of capital stock, Host REIT can merge with or
  into another entity, consolidate with one or more other entities,
  participate in a share exchange or transfer our assets within the meaning
  of the Maryland General Corporation Law if approved (1) by Host REIT's
  Board of Directors in the manner provided in the Maryland General
  Corporation Law and (2) by Host REIT's shareholders holding two-thirds of
  all the votes entitled to be cast on the matter, except that any merger of
  Host REIT with or into a trust organized for the purpose of changing its
  form of organization from a corporation to a trust requires only the
  approval of Host REIT's shareholders holding a majority of all votes
  entitled to be cast on the merger. Under the Maryland General Corporation
  Law, specified mergers may be approved without a vote of shareholders and a
  share exchange is only required to be approved by a Maryland corporation by
  its Board of Directors. Host REIT's voluntary dissolution also would
  require approval of shareholders holding two-thirds of all the votes
  entitled to be cast on the matter.
 
     Amendments to Host REIT's charter and bylaws. Host REIT's charter
  contains provisions relating to restrictions on transferability of Host
  REIT's common stock, the classified Board of Directors, fixing the size of
  Host REIT's Board of Directors within the range set forth in Host REIT's
  charter, removal of directors and the filling of vacancies, all of which
  may be amended only by a resolution adopted by the
 
                                      19

<PAGE>
 
  Board of Directors and approved by Host REIT's shareholders holding two-
  thirds of the votes entitled to be cast on the matter. As permitted under
  the Maryland General Corporation Law, Host REIT's charter and bylaws
  provide that directors have the exclusive right to amend Host REIT's
  bylaws. Amendments of this provision of Host REIT's charter also would
  require action of Host REIT's Board of Directors and approval by
  shareholders holding two-thirds of all the votes entitled to be cast on the
  matter.
 
     Marriott International purchase right. As a result of our spin-off of
  Marriott International in 1993, Marriott International has the right to
  purchase up to 20% of each class of Host REIT's outstanding voting shares
  at the then fair market value when specific change of control events
  involving Host REIT occur, subject to specified limitations to protect Host
  REIT's REIT status. The Marriott International purchase right may have the
  effect of discouraging a takeover of Host REIT, because any person
  considering acquiring a substantial or controlling block of Host REIT's
  common stock will face the possibility that its ability to obtain or
  exercise control would be impaired or made more expensive by the exercise
  of the Marriott International purchase right.
 
     Shareholder rights plan. Host REIT adopted a shareholder rights plan
  which provides, among other things, that when specified events occur, their
  shareholders will be entitled to purchase from Host REIT a newly created
  series of junior preferred shares, subject to Host REIT's ownership limit
  described below. The preferred share purchase rights are triggered by the
  earlier to occur of (1) ten days after the date of a public announcement
  that a person or group acting in concert has acquired, or obtained the
  right to acquire, beneficial ownership of 20% or more of Host REIT's
  outstanding shares of common stock or (2) ten business days after the
  commencement of or announcement of an intention to make a tender offer or
  exchange offer, the consummation of which would result in the acquiring
  person becoming the beneficial owner of 20% or more of Host REIT's
  outstanding common stock. The preferred share purchase rights would cause
  substantial dilution to a person or group that attempts to acquire Host
  REIT on terms not approved by Host REIT's Board of Directors.
 
   There are possible adverse consequences of limits on ownership of Host REIT
common stock. To maintain its qualification as a REIT for federal income tax
purposes, not more than 50% in value of Host REIT's outstanding shares of
capital stock may be owned, directly or indirectly, by five or fewer
individuals, as defined in the Internal Revenue Code to include some entities.
In addition, a person who owns, directly or by attribution, 10% or more of an
interest in a tenant of Host REIT, or a tenant of any partnership in which
Host REIT is a partner, cannot own, directly or by attribution, 10% or more of
Host REIT's shares without jeopardizing Host REIT's qualification as a REIT.
Primarily to facilitate maintenance of Host REIT's qualification as a REIT for
federal income tax purposes, the ownership limit under Host REIT's charter
prohibits ownership, directly or by virtue of the attribution provisions of
the Internal Revenue Code, by any person or persons acting as a group, of more
than 9.8% of the issued and outstanding shares of Host REIT's common stock,
subject to an exception for shares of Host REIT's common stock held prior to
the REIT conversion so long as the holder would not own more than 9.9% in
value of Host REIT's outstanding shares after the REIT conversion, and
prohibits ownership, directly or by virtue of the attribution provisions of
the Internal Revenue Code, by any person, or persons acting as a group, of
more than 9.8% of the issued and outstanding shares of any class or series of
Host REIT's preferred shares. Together, these limitations are referred to as
the "ownership limit." Host REIT's Board of Directors, in its sole and
absolute discretion, may waive or modify the ownership limit with respect to
one or more persons who would not be treated as "individuals" for purposes of
the Internal Revenue Code if it is satisfied, based upon information required
to be provided by the party seeking the waiver and upon an opinion of counsel
satisfactory to Host REIT's Board of Directors, that ownership in excess of
this limit will not cause a person who is an individual to be treated as
owning shares in excess of the ownership limit, applying the applicable
constructive ownership rules, and will not otherwise jeopardize Host REIT's
status as a REIT for federal income tax purposes (for example, by causing any
of Host REIT's tenants to be considered a "related party tenant" for purposes
of the REIT qualification rules). Common stock acquired or held in violation
of the ownership limit will be transferred automatically to a trust for the
benefit of a designated charitable beneficiary, and the person who acquired
such common stock in violation of the ownership limit will not be entitled to
any
 
                                      20

<PAGE>
 
distributions thereon, to vote such shares of common stock or to receive any
proceeds from the subsequent sale thereof in excess of the lesser of the price
paid therefor or the amount realized from such sale. A transfer of shares of
Host REIT's common stock to a person who, as a result of the transfer,
violates the ownership limit may be void under certain circumstances, and, in
any event, would deny that person any of the economic benefits of owning
shares of Host REIT's common stock in excess of the ownership limit. The
ownership limit may have the effect of delaying, deferring or preventing a
change in control and, therefore, could adversely affect the shareholders'
ability to realize a premium over the then-prevailing market price for Host
REIT's common stock in connection with such transaction.
 
   We depend on external sources of capital for future growth. As with other
REITs, but unlike corporations generally, Host REIT's and our ability to
reduce our debt and finance our growth largely must be funded by external
sources of capital because Host REIT generally will have to distribute to its
shareholders 90% of its taxable income in order to qualify as a REIT,
including taxable income where it does not receive corresponding cash. For
taxable years prior to January 1, 2001, Host REIT was required to distribute
95% of its taxable income to qualify as a REIT. Our access to external capital
will depend upon a number of factors, including general market conditions, the
market's perception of our growth potential, our current and potential future
earnings, cash distributions and the market price of Host REIT's common stock.
Currently, our access to external capital has been limited to the extent that
Host REIT's common stock is trading at what we believe is a discount to its
estimated net asset value.
 
   Shares of Host REIT common stock that are or become available for sale
could affect the price for shares of Host REIT common stock. Sales of a
substantial number of shares of Host REIT's common stock, or the perception
that sales could occur, could adversely affect prevailing market prices for
Host REIT's common stock. In addition, holders of our outside OP Units, who
redeem their OP Units and receive common stock will be able to sell such
shares freely, unless the person is our affiliate and resale of such
affiliate's shares is not covered by an effective registration statement.
There are currently approximately 50.7 million outside OP Units outstanding,
all of which are currently redeemable. Further, a substantial number of shares
of Host REIT's common stock have been and will be issued or reserved for
issuance from time to time under our employee benefit plans, including shares
of Host REIT's common stock reserved for options, and these shares of common
stock would be available for sale in the public markets from time to time
pursuant to exemptions from registration or upon registration. Moreover, the
issuance of additional shares of Host REIT's common stock by us in the future
would be available for sale in the public markets. We can make no prediction
about the effect that future sales of Host REIT's common stock would have on
the market price of Host REIT's common stock.
 
   Host REIT's earnings and cash distributions will affect the market price of
shares of Host REIT common stock. We believe that the market value of a REIT's
equity securities is based primarily upon the market's perception of the
REIT's growth potential and its current and potential future cash
distributions, whether from operations, sales, acquisitions, development or
refinancings, and is secondarily based upon the value of the underlying
assets. For that reason, shares of Host REIT's common stock may trade at
prices that are higher or lower than the net asset value per share. To the
extent we retain operating cash flow for investment purposes, working capital
reserves or other purposes rather than distributing such cash flow to Host
REIT's shareholders, these retained funds, while increasing the value of our
underlying assets, may not correspondingly increase the market price of Host
REIT's common stock. Host REIT's failure to meet the market's expectation with
regard to future earnings and cash distributions would likely adversely affect
the market price of Host REIT's common stock.
 
   Market interest rates may affect the price of shares of Host REIT's common
stock. One of the factors that investors consider important in deciding
whether to buy or sell shares of a REIT is the distribution rate on such
shares, considered as a percentage of the price of such shares, relative to
market interest rates. If market interest rates increase, prospective
purchasers of REIT shares may expect a higher distribution rate. Thus, higher
market interest rates could cause the market price of Host REIT's shares to go
down.

Risks of operation
 
   We do not control our hotel operations, and we are dependent on the
managers of our hotels. Because federal income tax laws currently restrict
REITs and "publicly traded" partnerships from deriving revenues directly from
operating a hotel, we do not manage our hotels. Instead, we retain managers to
manage our hotels pursuant to management agreements. Our income from the
hotels may be adversely affected if the managers fail to provide quality
services and amenities and competitive room rates at our hotels or fail to
maintain the quality of the hotel brand names. While we employ very aggressive
asset management techniques to oversee the managers' performance, we have
limited specific recourse if we believe that the hotel managers do not
maximize the revenues from our hotels or control expenses, which in turn will
maximize our results of operations and EBITDA on a consolidated basis.
 
   Our relationship with Marriott International may result in conflicts of
interest. Marriott International, a public hotel management company, manages a
significant number of our hotels. In addition, Marriott International manages
and in some cases may own or be invested in hotels that compete with our
hotels. As a result, Marriott International may make decisions regarding
competing lodging facilities which it manages that would not necessarily be in
our best interests. J.W. Marriott, Jr. is a member of our Board of Directors
and his brother, Richard E. Marriott, is our Chairman of the Board. Both J.W.
Marriott, Jr. and Richard E. Marriott serve as directors, and J.W. Marriott,
Jr. also serves as an officer, of Marriott International. J.W. Marriott, Jr.
and Richard E. Marriott beneficially own, as determined for securities law
purposes, as of January 31, 2001, approximately 12.6% and 12.2%, respectively,
of the outstanding shares of common stock of Marriott International. As a
result, J.W. Marriott, Jr. and Richard E. Marriott have potential conflicts of
interest as our directors when making decisions regarding Marriott
International, including decisions relating to the management agreements
involving the hotels and Marriott International's management of competing
lodging properties.
 
   Both our Board of Directors and the Board of Directors of Marriott
International follow appropriate policies and procedures to limit the
involvement of Messrs. J.W. Marriott, Jr. and Richard E. Marriott in conflict
situations, including requiring them to abstain from voting as directors of
either us or Marriott International or our or their subsidiaries on matters
which present a conflict between the companies. If appropriate, these policies
and procedures will apply to other directors and officers.
 
   We have substantial indebtedness. Our degree of leverage could affect our
ability to:
 
  .  obtain financing in the future for working capital, capital
     expenditures, acquisitions, development or other general business
     purposes;
 
  .  undertake financings on terms and conditions acceptable to us;
 
  .  pursue our acquisition strategy; or
 
  .  compete effectively or operate successfully under adverse economic
     conditions.
 
   If our cash flow and working capital are not sufficient to fund our
expenditures or service our indebtedness, we would have to raise additional
funds through:
 
  .  the sale of equity;
 
  .  the refinancing of all or part of our indebtedness;
 
  .  the incurrence of additional permitted indebtedness; or
 
  .  the sale of assets.
 
   We cannot assure you that any of these sources of funds would be available
in amounts sufficient for us to meet our obligations or fulfill our business
plans. Additionally, our debt contains performance related covenants that, if
not achieved, could require immediate repayment of our debt or significantly
increase the rate of interest on our debt.
 
                                      22

<PAGE>
 
   There is no limitation on the amount of debt we may incur. There are no
limitations in our organizational documents or the operating partnership's
organizational documents that limit the amount of indebtedness that we may
incur. However, our existing debt instruments contain restrictions on the
amount of indebtedness that we may incur. Accordingly, we could incur
indebtedness to the extent permitted by our debt agreements. If we became more
highly leveraged, our debt service payments would increase and our cash flow
and our ability to service our debt and make distributions to our shareholders
would be adversely affected.
 
   Our management agreements could impair the sale or other disposition of our
hotels. Under the terms of the management agreements, we generally may not
sell, lease or otherwise transfer the hotels unless the transferee assumes the
related management agreements and meets specified other conditions. Our
ability to finance, refinance or sell any of the properties may, depending
upon the structure of such transactions, require the manager's consent. If the
manager did not consent, we would be prohibited from financing, refinancing or
selling the property without breaching the management agreement.
 
   The acquisition contracts relating to some hotels limit our ability to sell
or refinance those hotels. For reasons relating to federal income tax
considerations of the former owners of some of our hotels, we agreed to
restrictions on selling some hotels or repaying or refinancing the mortgage
debt on those hotels for varying periods depending on the hotel. We anticipate
that, in specified circumstances, we may agree to similar restrictions in
connection with future hotel acquisitions. As a result, even if it were in our
best interests to sell or refinance the mortgage debt on these hotels, it may
be difficult or impossible to do so during their respective lock-out periods.
 
   Our ground lease payments may increase faster than the revenues we receive
on the hotels. As of January 31, 2001, we leased 46 of our hotels pursuant to
ground leases. These ground leases generally require increases in ground rent
payments every five years. Our ability to make distributions to shareholders
could be adversely affected to the extent that our revenues do not increase at
the same or a greater rate as the increases under the ground leases. In
addition, if we were to sell a hotel encumbered by a ground lease, the buyer
would have to assume the ground lease, which could result in a lower sales
price. Moreover, to the extent that such ground leases are not renewed at
their expiration, our revenues could be adversely affected.
 
   New acquisitions may fail to perform as expected or we may be unable to
make acquisitions on favorable terms. We intend to acquire additional full-
service hotels. Newly acquired properties may fail to perform as expected,
which could adversely affect our financial condition. We may underestimate the
costs necessary to bring an acquired property up to standards established for
its intended market position. We expect to acquire hotels with cash from
secured or unsecured financings and proceeds from offerings of equity or debt,
to the extent available. We may not be in a position or have the opportunity
in the future to make suitable property acquisitions on favorable terms.
Competition for attractive investment opportunities may increase prices for
hotel properties, thereby decreasing the potential return on our investment.
 
   We may be unable to sell properties when appropriate because real estate
investments are illiquid. Real estate investments generally cannot be sold
quickly. We may not be able to vary our portfolio promptly in response to
economic or other conditions. The inability to respond promptly to changes in
the performance of our investments could adversely affect our financial
condition, and ability to service debt and make distributions to shareholders.
In addition, there are limitations under the federal tax laws applicable to
REITs and agreements that we have entered into when we acquired some of our
properties that may limit our ability to recognize the full economic benefit
from a sale of our assets.
 
   Our revenues and the value of our properties are subject to conditions
affecting the lodging industry. If our assets do not generate income
sufficient to pay our expenses, service our debt and maintain our properties,
we will be unable to make distributions to our shareholders. Our revenues and
the value of our properties are subject to conditions affecting the lodging
industry. These include:
 
  .   changes in the national, regional and local economic climate;
 
                                      23

<PAGE>
 
  .   local conditions such as an oversupply of hotel properties or a
      reduction in demand for hotel rooms;
 
  .   the attractiveness of our hotels to consumers and competition from
      comparable hotels;
 
  .   the quality, philosophy and performance of the managers of our hotels;
 
  .   changes in room rates and increases in operating costs due to inflation
      and other factors; and
 
  .   the need to periodically repair and renovate our hotels.
 
  .   Adverse changes in these conditions could adversely affect our
      financial performance.
 
   Our expenses may remain constant even if our revenue drops. The expenses of
owning property are not necessarily reduced when circumstances like market
factors and competition cause a reduction in income from the property. If a
property is mortgaged and we are unable to meet the mortgage payments, the
lender could foreclose and take the property. Our financial condition could be
adversely affected by:
 
  .   interest rate levels;
 
  .   the availability of financing;
 
  .   the cost of compliance with government regulation, including zoning and
      tax laws; and
 
  .   changes in governmental regulations, including those governing usage,
      zoning and taxes.
 
   We depend on our key personnel. We depend on the efforts of our executive
officers and other key personnel. While we believe that we could find
replacements for these key personnel, the loss of their services could have a
significant adverse effect on our operations. We do not intend to obtain key-
man life insurance with respect to any of our personnel.
 
   Partnership and other litigation judgments or settlements could have a
material adverse effect on our financial condition. We and the operating
partnership are parties to various lawsuits relating to previous partnership
transactions, including the REIT conversion. While we and the other defendants
to such lawsuits believe all of the lawsuits in which we are a defendant are
without merit and we are vigorously defending against such claims, we can give
no assurance as to the outcome of any of the lawsuits. In connection with the
REIT conversion, the operating partnership has assumed all liability arising
under legal proceedings filed against us and will indemnify us as to all such
matters. If any of the lawsuits were to be determined adversely to us or
settlement involving a payment of a material sum of money were to occur, there
could be a material adverse effect on our financial condition.
 
   We may acquire hotel properties through joint ventures with third parties
that could result in conflicts. Instead of purchasing hotel properties
directly, we may invest as a co-venturer. Joint venturers often share control
over the operation of the joint venture assets. Actions by a co-venturer could
subject the assets to additional risk, including:
 
  .   our co-venturer in an investment might have economic or business
      interests or goals that are inconsistent with our interests or goals;
 
  .   our co-venturers may be in a position to take action contrary to our
      instructions or requests or contrary to our policies or objectives; or
 
  .   a joint venture partner could go bankrupt, leaving us liable for its
      share of joint venture liabilities.
 
   Although we generally will seek to maintain sufficient control of any joint
venture to permit our objectives to be achieved, we might not be able to take
action without the approval of our joint venture partners. Also, our joint
venture partners could take actions binding on the joint venture without our
consent.
 
   Environmental problems are possible and can be costly. We believe that our
properties are in compliance in all material respects with applicable
environmental laws. Unidentified environmental liabilities could arise,
however, and could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition
and performance. Federal, state and local laws and regulations relating to the
protection of the environment may require a current
 
                                      24

or previous owner or operator of real estate to investigate and clean up
hazardous or toxic substances or petroleum product releases at the property.
The owner or operator may have to pay a governmental entity or third parties
for property damage and for investigation and clean-up costs incurred by the
parties in connection with the contamination. These laws typically impose
clean-up responsibility and liability without regard to whether the owner or
operator knew of or caused the presence of the contaminants. Even if more than
one person may have been responsible for the contamination, each person
covered by the environmental laws may be held responsible for all of the
clean-up costs incurred. In addition, third parties may sue the owner or
operator of a site for damages and costs resulting from environmental
contamination emanating from that site. Environmental laws also govern the
presence, maintenance and removal of asbestos. These laws require that owners
or operators of buildings containing asbestos properly manage and maintain the
asbestos, they notify and train those who may come into contact with asbestos
and they undertake special precautions, including removal or other abatement,
if asbestos would be disturbed during renovation or demolition of a building.
These laws may impose fines and penalties on building owners or operators who
fail to comply with these requirements and may allow third parties to seek
recovery from owners or operators for personal injury associated with exposure
to asbestos fibers.
 
   Compliance with other government regulations can also be costly. Our hotels
are subject to various forms of regulation, including Title III of the
Americans with Disabilities Act, building codes and regulations pertaining to
fire safety. Compliance with those laws and regulations could require
substantial capital expenditures. These regulations may be changed from time
to time, or new regulations adopted, resulting in additional or unexpected
costs of compliance. Any increased costs could reduce the cash available for
servicing debt and making distributions to our shareholders.
 
   Some potential losses are not covered by insurance. We carry comprehensive
liability, fire, flood, extended coverage and rental loss, for rental losses
extending up to 12 months, insurance with respect to all of our hotels. We
believe the policy specifications and insured limits of these policies are of
the type customarily carried for similar hotels. Some types of losses, such as
from earthquakes and environmental hazards, however, may be either uninsurable
or too expensive to justify insuring against. Should an uninsured loss or a
loss in excess of insured limits occur, we could lose all or a portion of the
capital we have invested in a hotel, as well as the anticipated future revenue
from the hotel. In that event, we might nevertheless remain obligated for any
mortgage debt or other financial obligations related to the property.
 
Federal income tax risks
 
   General. We believe that Host REIT has been organized and has operated in
such a manner so as to qualify as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code,
commencing with the taxable year beginning January 1, 1999. A REIT generally
is not taxed at the corporate level on income it currently distributes to its
shareholders as long as it distributes at least 90% of its taxable income,
excluding net capital gain. No assurance can be provided, however, that Host
REIT will qualify as a REIT or that new legislation, Treasury Regulations,
administrative interpretations or court decisions will not significantly
change the tax laws with respect to its qualification as a REIT or the federal
income tax consequences of such qualification.
 
   Required distributions and payments. To continue to qualify as a REIT, Host
REIT currently is required each year to distribute to its shareholders at
least 90% of its taxable income, excluding net capital gain (for taxable years
that ended prior to January 1, 2001, Host REIT was required to distribute at
least 95% of this amount to so qualify). Due to some transactions entered into
in years prior to the REIT conversion, we expect to recognize substantial
amounts of "phantom" income, which is taxable income that is not matched by
cash flow or EBITDA to us. In addition, we will be subject to a 4%
nondeductible excise tax on the amount, if any, by which distributions made by
us with respect to the calendar year are less than the sum of 85% of our
ordinary income and 95% of our capital gain net income for that year and any
undistributed taxable income from prior periods. Host REIT intends to make
distributions to its shareholders to comply with the distribution requirement
and to avoid the nondeductible excise tax and will rely for this purpose on
distributions from us. However, differences in timing between taxable income
and cash available for distribution due to, among other things, the
 
                                      25

<PAGE>
 
seasonality of the lodging industry and the fact that some taxable income will
be "phantom" income could require us to borrow funds or Host REIT to issue
additional equity to enable us to meet the distribution requirement and,
therefore, to maintain Host REIT's REIT status, and to avoid the nondeductible
excise tax. We are required to pay, or reimburse Host REIT, as general
partner, for some taxes and other liabilities and expenses that Host REIT
incurs, including all taxes and liabilities attributable to periods and events
prior to the REIT conversion. In addition, because the REIT distribution
requirements prevent Host REIT from retaining earnings, we will generally be
required to refinance debt that matures with additional debt or equity. We
cannot assure you that any of these sources of funds, if available at all,
would be sufficient to meet the distribution and tax obligations.
 
   Adverse consequences of our failure to qualify as a REIT. If we fail to
qualify as a REIT, we will be subject to federal income tax, including any
applicable alternative minimum tax, on our taxable income at regular corporate
rates. In addition, unless entitled to statutory relief, we will not qualify
as a REIT for the four taxable years following the year during which REIT
qualification is lost. The additional tax burden on us would significantly
reduce the cash available for distribution by us to our shareholders and we
would no longer be required to make any distributions to shareholders. Our
failure to qualify as a REIT could reduce materially the value of our common
stock and would cause any distributions to shareholders that otherwise would
have been subject to tax as capital gain dividends to be taxable as ordinary
income to the extent of our current and accumulated earnings and profits, or
E&P. However, subject to limitations under the Internal Revenue Code,
corporate distributees may be eligible for the dividends received deduction
with respect to our distributions. Our failure to qualify as a REIT also would
result in a default under our senior notes and our credit facility.
 
   Our earnings and profits attributable to our non-REIT taxable years. In
order to qualify as a REIT, we cannot have at the end of any taxable year any
undistributed E&P that is attributable to one of our non-REIT taxable years. A
REIT has until the close of its first taxable year as a REIT in which it has
non-REIT E&P to distribute such accumulated E&P. We were required to have
distributed this E&P prior to the end of 1999, the first taxable year for
which our REIT election was effective. If we failed to do this, we will be
disqualified as a REIT at least for taxable year 1999. We believe that
distributions of non-REIT E&P that we made were sufficient to distribute all
of the non-REIT E&P as of December 31, 1999, but there could be uncertainties
relating to the estimate of our non-REIT E&P and the value of the Crestline
stock that we distributed to our shareholders. Therefore, we cannot guarantee
that we met this requirement.
 
   Treatment of leases. To qualify as a REIT, we must satisfy two gross income
tests, under which specified percentages of our gross income must be passive
income, like rent. For the rent paid pursuant to the leases, which constitutes
substantially all of our gross income, to qualify for purposes of the gross
income tests, the leases must be respected as true leases for federal income
tax purposes and not be treated as service contracts, joint ventures or some
other type of arrangement. In addition, the lessees must not be regarded as
"related party tenants," as defined in the Internal Revenue Code. We believe,
taking into account both the terms of the leases and the expectations that we
and the lessees have with respect to the leases, that the leases will be
respected as true leases for federal income tax purposes. There can be no
assurance, however, that the IRS will agree with this view. If the leases were
not respected as true leases for federal income tax purposes or if the lessees
were regarded as "related party tenants," we would not be able to satisfy
either of the two gross income tests applicable to REITs and we would lose our
REIT status. See "--Adverse consequences of our failure to qualify as a REIT"
above.
 
   For our taxable years beginning on and after January 1, 2001, as a result
of the REIT Modernization Act, we are permitted to lease our hotels to a
subsidiary of the operating partnership that is taxable as a corporation and
that elects to be treated as a "taxable REIT subsidiary." Accordingly,
effective January 1, 2001, HMT Lessee, a newly created, wholly owned
subsidiary of the operating partnership, directly or indirectly acquired all
but one of the full-service hotel leasehold interests formerly held by
Crestline. So long as HMT Lessee and other affiliated lessees qualify as
taxable REIT subsidiaries of ours, they will not be treated as "related party
tenants." We believe that HMT Lessee qualifies to be treated as a taxable REIT
subsidiary for federal income tax purposes.
 
                                      26

<PAGE>
 
We cannot assure you, however, that the IRS will not challenge its status as a
taxable REIT subsidiary for federal income tax purposes, or that a court would
not sustain such a challenge. If the IRS were successful in disqualifying HMT
Lessee from treatment as a taxable REIT subsidiary, we would fail to meet the
asset tests applicable to REITs and substantially all of our income would fail
to qualify for the gross income tests and, accordingly, we would cease to
qualify as a REIT. See "--Adverse consequences of our failure to qualify as a
REIT" above.
 
   Other tax liabilities; our substantial deferred and contingent tax
liabilities. Notwithstanding our status as a REIT, we are subject, through our
ownership interest in the operating partnership, to certain federal, state and
local taxes on our income and property. In addition, we will be required to
pay federal tax at the highest regular corporate rate, currently 35%, upon our
share of any "built-in gain" recognized as a result of any sale before January
1, 2009, by the operating partnership of assets, including the hotels, in
which interests were acquired by the operating partnership from our
predecessor and its subsidiaries as part of the REIT conversion. Built-in gain
is the amount by which an asset's fair market value exceeded our adjusted
basis in the asset on January 1, 1999, the first day of our first taxable year
as a REIT. At the time of the REIT conversion, we expected that we or a non-
controlled subsidiary likely would recognize substantial built-in gain and
deferred tax liabilities in the next ten years without any corresponding
receipt of cash by us or the operating partnership. We recognized a
substantial amount of these built-in gains and deferred tax liabilities in
1999 and paid tax thereon at the applicable corporate rates. Accordingly, our
potential tax exposure on these gains and deferred liabilities for the future
is significantly less than it was at the time of our REIT conversion. In
addition, because not all states treat REIT's the same as they are treated for
federal income tax purposes, we may have to pay certain state income taxes,
notwithstanding our status as a REIT. The operating partnership is obligated
under its partnership agreement to pay all such taxes incurred by us, as well
as any liabilities that the IRS may assert against us for corporate income
taxes for taxable years prior to the time we qualified as a REIT. The non-
controlled subsidiaries and any of our taxable REIT subsidiaries, including
HMT Lessee, are taxable as corporations and will pay federal and state income
tax on their net income at the applicable corporate rates.
 
   The operating partnership's failure to qualify as a partnership. We believe
that the operating partnership qualifies to be treated as a partnership for
federal income tax purposes. No assurance can be provided, however, that the
IRS will not challenge its status as a partnership for federal income tax
purposes, or that a court would not sustain such a challenge. If the IRS were
successful in treating the operating partnership as a corporation for tax
purposes, we would fail to meet two of the asset tests applicable to REITs
and, accordingly, cease to qualify as a REIT. See "--Adverse consequences of
our failure to qualify as a REIT" above. Also, the imposition of a corporate
tax on the operating partnership would reduce significantly the amount of cash
available for distribution to its limited partners, including us. Finally, the
classification of the operating partnership as a corporation would cause us to
recognize gain at least equal to our "negative capital accounts," and possibly
more, depending upon the circumstances.
 
   REIT Modernization Act changes to the REIT asset tests. Subject to the
exceptions discussed in this paragraph, a REIT is prohibited from owning
securities in any one issuer if the value of those securities exceeds 5% of
the value of the REIT's total assets or the securities owned by the REIT
represent more than 10% of the issuer's outstanding voting securities or, for
taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2001, more than 10% of the
value of the issuer's outstanding securities. For taxable years beginning on
or after January 1, 2001, as a result of the REIT Modernization Act, a REIT is
permitted to own securities of a subsidiary that exceed the 5% value test and
the 10% vote or value test if the subsidiary elects to be a "taxable REIT
subsidiary," which is taxable as a corporation. However, a REIT may not own
securities of taxable REIT subsidiaries that represent in the aggregate more
than 20% of the value of the REIT's total assets. Effective January 1, 2001,
each of the non-controlled subsidiaries and HMT Lessee has elected to be
treated as a taxable REIT subsidiary.
 
   Several provisions of the REIT Modernization Act ensure that a taxable REIT
subsidiary is subject to an appropriate level of federal income taxation. For
example, a taxable REIT subsidiary is limited in its ability to deduct
interest payments made to an affiliated REIT. In addition, the REIT has to pay
a 100% penalty tax on
 
                                      27

<PAGE>
 
some payments that it receives if the economic arrangements between the REIT
and the taxable REIT subsidiary are not comparable to similar arrangements
between unrelated parties.
 
   We may be required to pay a penalty tax upon the sale of a hotel. The
federal income tax provisions applicable to REITs provide that any gain
realized by a REIT on the sale of property held as inventory or other property
held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of business is
treated as income from a "prohibited transaction" that is subject to a 100%
penalty tax. Under existing law, whether property, including hotels, is held
as inventory or primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of
business is a question of fact that depends upon all of the facts and
circumstances with respect to the particular transaction. The operating
partnership intends that it and its subsidiaries will hold the hotels for
investment with a view to long-term appreciation, to engage in the business of
acquiring and owning hotels and to make occasional sales of hotels as are
consistent with the operating partnership's investment objectives. We cannot
assure you, however, that the IRS might not contend that one or more of these
sales is subject to the 100% penalty tax, particularly if the hotels that are
sold have been held for a relatively short period of time.

tem 3. Legal Proceedings
 
   In connection with the REIT Conversion, we assumed all liability arising
under legal proceedings filed against Host REIT and will indemnify Host REIT
as to all such matters. We believe all of the lawsuits in which we are a
defendant, including the following lawsuits, are without merit and we intend
to defend vigorously against such claims; however, no assurance can be given
as to the outcome of any of the lawsuits.
 
   Marriott Hotel Properties II Limited Partnership (MHP). Limited partners of
MHP II have filed putative class action lawsuits in Palm Beach County Circuit
Court on May 10, 1996, Leonard Rosenblum, as Trustee of the Sylvia Bernice
Rosenblum Trust, et. al. v. Marriott MHP Two Corporation, et. al., Case No.
CL-96-4087-AD, and, in the Delaware Court of Chancery on April 24, 1996, Cary
W. Salter, Jr., et. al. v. MHP II Acquisition Corp., et. al., respectively,
against Host REIT and certain of its affiliates alleging that the defendants
violated their fiduciary duties and engaged in fraud and coercion in
connection with the 1996 tender offer for MHP II units and with our
acquisition of MHP II in connection with the 1998 REIT conversion. The
plaintiffs in these actions are seeking unspecified damages.
 
   In the Florida case, the defendants removed the case to the United States
District Court for the Southern District of Florida and, after hearings on
various procedural motions, the District Court remanded the case to state
court on July 25, 1998. In light of the court's decision in the Delaware case,
detailed below, the defendants in the Florida action filed a supplemental
memorandum in support of their motions to dismiss, and attached a copy of the
Delaware opinion to the memorandum. The Florida court has not yet ruled on the
motions.
 
   In the Delaware case, the Delaware Court of Chancery initially granted the
plaintiffs' motion to voluntarily dismiss the case with the proviso that the
plaintiffs could refile in the aforementioned action in federal court in
Florida. After the District Court's remand of the Florida action back to
Florida state court, two of the three original Delaware plaintiffs asked the
Court of Chancery to reconsider its order granting their voluntary dismissal.
The Court of Chancery refused to allow the plaintiffs to join the Florida
action and, instead, reinstated the Delaware case, now styled In Re Marriott
Hotel Properties II Limited Partnership Unitholders Litigation, Consolidated
Civil Action No. 14961. On January 29, 1999, Cary W. Salter, one of the
original plaintiffs, alone filed an Amended Consolidated Class Action
Complaint in the Delaware action. On January 24, 2000, the Delaware Court of
Chancery issued a memorandum opinion in which the court dismissed all but one
of the plaintiff's claims, which remaining claim concerns the adequacy of
disclosure during the initial tender offer. This claim remains pending.
 
   A subsequent lawsuit, Accelerated High Yield Growth Fund, Ltd., et al. v.
HMC Hotel Properties II Limited Partnership, et. al., C.A. No. 18254NC, was
filed on August 23, 2000 in the Delaware Court of Chancery by the MacKenzie
Patterson group of funds, one of the three original Delaware plaintiffs,
against Host REIT and certain of its affiliates alleging breach of contract,
fraud and coercion in connection with the acquisition of MHP II
 
                                      28

<PAGE>
 
during the 1998 REIT conversion. The plaintiffs allege that our acquisition of
MHP II by merger in connection with the REIT conversion violated the
partnership agreement and that our subsidiary acting as the general partner of
MHP II breached its fiduciary duties by allowing it to occur. The plaintiffs
in this action are seeking unspecified damages.
 
   Marriott Suites Limited Partnership (MSLP). On December 10, 1999, KSK
Hawaii Co., Ltd. ("KSK"), a limited partner in MSLP, filed a lawsuit, KSK
Hawaii Co., Ltd. v. Marriott SBM One Corporation, et al., Civil Action No.
17657-NC, in the Delaware Court of Chancery. KSK alleges that we and our
subsidiary, the general partner of MSLP, breached fiduciary duties to KSK
through a recapitalization of the partnership in 1996 and through a merger of
the partnership in 1998. KSK contends that it was coerced into selling 19 of
its 20 partnership units in 1996 and that it was further harmed by the 1998
merger, in which its remaining interest in the partnership was eliminated.
KSK's complaint also alleges that the recapitalization and merger involved
fraud and breaches of the partnership agreement. This matter was recently
settled in a manner which will have no material impact on our financial
statements and the lawsuit will be dismissed.
 
   Mutual Benefit Chicago Marriott Suite Hotel Partners, L.P. ("O'Hare
Suites"). On October 5, 2000, Joseph S. Roth and Robert M. Niedelman, limited
partners in O'Hare Suites, filed a putative class action lawsuit, Joseph S.
Roth, et al., v. MOHS Corporation, et al., Case No. 00CH14500, in the Circuit
Court of Cook County, Illinois, Chancery Division, against Host REIT, Host LP,
Marriott International, and MOHS Corporation, a subsidiary of Host LP and a
former general partner of O'Hare Suites. The plaintiffs allege that an
improper calculation of the hotel manager's incentive management fees resulted
in inappropriate payments in 1997 and 1998, and, consequently, in an
inadequate appraised value for their limited partner units in connection with
the acquisition of O'Hare Suites during the 1998 REIT conversion. The
plaintiffs are seeking damages of approximately $13 million. The defendants
have filed motions to dismiss this case and are awaiting rulings on these
motions.
 
   Tampa Waterside Hotel. On January 23, 2001, Tampa Convention Hotel
Associates, Inc. ("TCHA") filed a lawsuit, Tampa Convention Hotel Associates,
Inc. v. The City of Tampa, Florida, et al., Case No. 01000668, Division G, in
the Circuit Court for Hillsborough County, Florida against the City of Tampa
(the "City"), Faison & Associates 2000, L.L.C. ("Faison"), Sodexho Marriott
Services, Inc., f/k/a Marriott International, Inc. ("Marriott International"),
Host REIT, and HMC Hotel Development LLC ("HMC Development"). TCHA was one of
several groups who had submitted development proposals in response to the
City's 1995 request for a proposal ("RFP") to develop a convention center
hotel in downtown Tampa. Each of the proposals submitted was ranked under the
terms of the RFP. The City's Hotel Review Committee ranked the TCHA proposal
second, and commenced negotiations with the top-ranked bidder
("Faison/Sheraton"). Faison/Sheraton failed to fulfill certain contingencies
by a May 27, 1997 deadline and the parties terminated their negotiations.
 
   TCHA alleges that it relied on the May 27, 1997 deadline, and that the City
engaged in negotiations with other bidders prior to its expiration to the
detriment of TCHA. On May 29, 1997, the City cancelled the RFP. HMC
Development subsequently entered into development agreements with the City to
develop the convention center hotel in October of 1997, and closed on the
Tampa hotel site in January of 1998.
   TCHA is suing the City on promissory estoppel grounds for failing to comply
with the Florida Sunshine Law by conducting private negotiations with the
other defendants. TCHA alleges that the other defendants tortiously interfered
with its business relationship with the City. TCHA is seeking unspecified
actual, compensatory, and special damages. The City, Host REIT, and HMC
Development have filed motions to dismiss this lawsuit. A hearing on these
motions has not yet been set.

Item 5. Market for our OP Units and related unitholder matters
 
   There is no established public trading market for our OP Units and
transfers of OP Units are restricted by the terms of our partnership
agreements. During 2000, quarterly cash distributions of $0.21, $0.21, $0.23,
and $0.26 per OP Unit were declared on March 23, June 21, September 19, and
December 18, 2000, respectively. The quarterly distributions were subsequently
paid on April 14, July 14, and October 16, 2000, and January 12, 2001. During
1999, a quarterly cash distribution of $0.21 per OP Unit was declared on March
15, June 15, September 23, 1999, and December 20, 1999. The quarterly
distributions were subsequently paid on April 14, July 14, and October 15,
1999, and January 17, 2000.
 
   The number of holders of record of our OP Units on March 12, 2001 was
2,729. The number of outstanding OP Units was 284,705,092 as of March 12,
2001, of which 234,022,707 were owned by Host REIT.
 
Issuances of Unregistered Securities.
 
   Unless stated otherwise, we acquired interests in partnerships owning hotel
properties in connection with each of the following issuances of unregistered
securities.
 
   On December 30, 1998, we issued 25.8 million OP Units to various limited
partners in the eight public partnership mergers and the four private
partnerships in exchange for their existing partnership interests, which were
valued at approximately $333 million. The issuance of OP Units was made in
reliance on an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities
Act pursuant to Section 4(2). The OP Units issued are redeemable for the cash
equivalent of a share of Host REIT's common stock or, at Host REIT's option,
shares of its common stock, beginning on December 30, 1999.
 
   Also on December 30, 1998, we issued approximately 43.9 million OP Units to
the Blackstone Entities in part in exchange for the acquisition of, or
controlling interests in, twelve hotels and one mortgage loan secured by an
additional hotel. We issued approximately 3.8 million additional OP Units on
March 31, 1999 to the Blackstone Entities. The issuance of OP Units was made
in reliance on an exemption from the registration requirements of the
Securities Act pursuant to Section 4(2) thereunder. The OP Units are
redeemable for the cash equivalent of a share of Host REIT's common stock or,
at Host REIT's option, shares of its common stock.
 
   In December 1998, we issued approximately 205.3 million OP Units to Host
Marriott and its subsidiaries in exchange for substantially all of Host
Marriott's and its subsidiaries' assets (excluding the senior living business
transferred to Crestline) and the assumption of substantially all of their
liabilities. The number of OP Units issued to Host Marriott and its
subsidiaries equalled the number of outstanding shares of Host Marriott's
common stock. The issuance of OP Units was made in reliance on an exemption
from the registration requirements for the Securities Act pursuant to Section
4(2).
 
   In June 1999, we issued approximately 586,000 Class TS cumulative
redeemable preferred OP Units to limited partners of Timewell Group, Ltd. and
Timeport, Ltd for the acquisition of their limited partnership interests in
Times Square Marquis Hotel, L.P., which owns the New York Marriott Marquis
Hotel. The issuance of the preferred OP units was made in reliance on an
exemption from the registration requirements for the Securities Act pursuant
to Section 4(2). The preferred OP Units are redeemable for OP Units one year
from the date of acquisition and are then immediately redeemable for cash, or
at Host REIT's option, common shares of Host REIT. During 2000, the holders
converted of all of the outstanding Class TS preferred OP Units to common OP
Units.
 
   In August 1999, Host REIT issued 4,160,000 shares of Class A cumulative
redeemable preferred stock the proceeds of which were used to purchase
4,160,000 units of Class A cumulative redeemable preferred units.
 
                                      30

<PAGE>
 
Dividends on the preferred OP Units are payable quarterly in arrears at the
rate of 10% per year. The issuance of the preferred OP Units was made in
reliance on an exemption from the registration requirements for the Securities
Act pursuant to Section 4(2).
 
   In November 1999, Host REIT issued 4,000,000 shares of Class B cumulative
redeemable preferred stock the proceeds of which were used to purchase
4,000,000 units of Class B cumulative redeemable preferred units. Dividends on
the preferred OP Units are payable quarterly in arrears at the rate of 10% per
year. The issuance of the preferred OP Units was made in reliance on an
exemption from the registration requirements for the Securities Act pursuant
to Section 4(2).
 
   In December 1999, we issued approximately 26,000 Class AM cumulative
redeemable preferred OP Units to limited partners of Hopewell Group, Ltd. for
the acquisition of their limited partnership interests in Ivy Street Hotel
Limited Partnership, which indirectly owns the Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel.
The issuance of the preferred OP units was made in reliance on an exemption
from the registration requirements for the Securities Act pursuant to Section
4(2). The preferred OP Units are redeemable for OP Units one year from the
date of acquisition and are then immediately redeemable for cash, or at Host
REIT's option, common shares of Host REIT. During 2000, holders of
approximately 7,000 of the Class AM Preferred OP Units converted to common OP
Units. Two years from the date of acquisition, Host REIT may require the
holders to convert to OP Units.

Item 6. Selected Financial Data
 
   The following table presents certain selected historical financial data of
Host Marriott, the predecessor to Host REIT and the Operating Partnership,
which has been derived from Host Marriott's audited consolidated financial
statements for fiscal years 1996, 1997, and 1998, and our audited consolidated
financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2000 and 1999.
 
   The information contained in the following table for years prior to 1999 is
not comparable to our 2000 and 1999 operations because the historical
information for those years relates to an operating entity which owned and
operated its hotels, while during 1999 and 2000 we owned the hotels but leased
them to third-party lessees, receiving rental payments in connection
therewith. As a result of the acquisition by our wholly-owned taxable REIT
subsidiary of the Crestline entities owning the leasehold interests with
respect to 116 of our full-service hotels, our consolidated operations
beginning January 1, 2001 will present property-level revenues and expenses
rather than rental income from lessees.

(1)  The Internal Revenue Code requires REITs to file their income tax return
     on a calendar year basis. Accordingly, in 1998 we changed our fiscal year
     end to December 31 for both financial and tax reporting requirements.
     Previously, our fiscal year ended on the Friday nearest to December 31.
     As a result of this change, the results of operations for 15 hotels not
     managed by Marriott International were adjusted in 1998 to include 13
     months of operations (December 1997 through December 1998) and therefore
     are not comparable to fiscal years 1997 and 1996, each of which included
     12 months of operations. The additional month of operations in 1998
     increased our revenues by $44 million.
(2)  Fiscal year 1996 includes 53 weeks. Fiscal years 1997, 1998, 1999 and
     2000 include 52 weeks.
(3)  The historical financial data for fiscal years 1998 and 1997 reflect as
     discontinued operations our senior living business that we formerly
     conducted but disposed of in the spin-off of Crestline as part of the
     REIT conversion. We recorded income from the discontinued operations, net
     of taxes, of $6 million in fiscal year 1998.
(4)  Historical revenues for 2000 and 1999 primarily represent lease income
     generated by our leases, primarily with Crestline. Periods prior to 1999
     represent gross hotel sales as our leases were not in effect until
     January 1, 1999. Revenues for fiscal years 1998, 1997 and 1996 have also
     been adjusted to reclassify interest income as revenue (previously
     classified as other income from operations) in order to be consistent
     with our 2000 and 1999 statement of operations presentation.

(5)  During the fiscal year 2000, we recorded an extraordinary loss of $2
     million in connection with the renegotiation of the bank credit facility,
     an extraordinary gain of $7 million on the extinguishment of $22 million
     of the convertible debt obligation to Host REIT, and an extraordinary loss
     of $1 million representing the write-off of deferred financing fees in
     connection with the repurchase of 0.4 million shares of Host REIT's
     Convertible Preferred Securities. In 1999, we recognized a $14 million
     extraordinary gain on the renegotiation of the management agreement for
     the New York Marriott Marquis, a net extraordinary gain of $5 million
     related to the refinancing of the mortgage debt for eight properties, a $2
     million extraordinary loss related to prepayments on the bank credit
     facility, and a net extraordinary gain of $12 million on the
     extinguishment of $53 million of the convertible debt obligation to Host
     REIT, including the write-off of deferred financing fees in connection
     with the repurchase of 1.1 million shares of Convertible Preferred
     Securities. In 1998, we recognized a $148 million extraordinary loss, net
     of taxes, on the early extinguishment of debt. In 1997, we recognized a $3
     million extraordinary gain, net of taxes, on the early extinguishment of
     debt.
(6)  Basic earnings (loss) per common unit is computed by dividing net income
     (loss) by the weighted average number of OP Units outstanding. Diluted
     earnings (loss) per common unit is computed by dividing net income (loss)
     by the weighted average number of OP Units outstanding plus other dilutive
     securities. Diluted earnings (loss) per unit has not been adjusted for the
     impact of the Convertible Preferred Securities for 2000, 1999, 1997 and
     1996 and for the comprehensive stock plan for 1996, as they are anti-
     dilutive.
(7)  2000 cash distributions per OP Unit reflect quarterly cash distributions
     of $0.21, $0.21, $0.23,and $0.26 per OP Unit paid on April 14, July 14,
     and October 16, 2000, and January 12, 2001, respectively. 1999 cash
     distributions per OP Unit reflect a quarterly cash distribution of $0.21
     per OP Unit paid on April 14, July 14 and October 15, 1999 and January 17,
     2000. 1998 cash distributions per OP Unit reflect the cash portion of a
     special distribution paid on February 10, 1999. This special distribution
     entitled shareholders of record on December 28, 1998 to elect to receive
     either $1.00 in cash or .087 of a share of common stock for each
     outstanding share of common stock owned by such shareholder on the record
     date. Cash totaling approximately $73 million and approximately 11.5
     million Host REIT common shares were subsequently issued during 1999.
(8)  Total assets for fiscal year 1997 include $236 million related to net
     investment in discontinued operations.
(9)  Long-term obligations consist of long term debt (which includes senior
     notes, secured senior notes, mortgage debt, other notes, capital lease
     obligations, a revolving bank credit facility, and the convertible debt
     obligation to Host REIT).

Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and
Financial Condition
 
Overview
 
   Host Marriott, L.P. a Maryland corporation formerly named HMC Merger
Corporation operating through an umbrella partnership structure, is the owner
of hotel properties. Host REIT is our sole general partner and operates as a
self-managed and self-administered REIT with its operations conducted solely
through us and our subsidiaries. As of December 31, 2000, Host REIT owned
approximately 78% of our outstanding OP Units. On February 7, 2001, certain
limited partners converted 12.5 million OP Units to Host REIT common shares
and immediately sold them to an underwriter for sale on the open market. As a
result, Host REIT now owns approximately 82% our outstanding OP Units.
 
   As of December 31, 2000, we owned, or had controlling interests in, 122
upscale and luxury, full-service hotel lodging properties generally located
throughout the United States and operated primarily under the Marriott, Ritz-
Carlton, Four Seasons, Hilton, Hyatt and Swissotel brand names.
 
   In December 1999, the REIT Modernization Act was passed, effective for
taxable years beginning after December 31, 2000, which significantly amends
the REIT laws applicable to us. Prior to that time, REITs were restricted from
deriving revenues directly from the operations of hotels. Thus, during 1999
and 2000 we leased substantially all of our hotels to subsidiaries of
Crestline and other third-party lessees.
 
   Under the REIT Modernization Act, beginning January 1, 2001, (i) we are now
permitted to lease our hotels to a subsidiary that is a taxable corporation
and that elects to be treated as a "taxable REIT subsidiary" rather than to a
third party such as Crestline and (ii) we may own all of the voting stock of
such TRS. Consequently, on November 13, 2000, we executed a definitive
agreement with Crestline to terminate our lease arrangements through the
purchase of the Crestline Lessee Entities that own the leasehold interests
with respect to 116 of our full-service hotels. In connection therewith,
during the fourth quarter of 2000 we recorded a non-recurring, pre-tax loss of
$207 million net of a tax benefit of $82 million which we have recognized as a
deferred tax asset because, for income tax purposes, the acquisition is
recognized as an asset that will be amortized over the remaining term of the
leases. We consummated the transaction effective January 1, 2001. Under the
terms of the transaction, our wholly-owned subsidiary, which will elect to be
treated as a TRS, acquired the Crestline Lessee Entities. Beginning in 2001,
we will recognize the revenues and expenses generated by the hotels subject to
the leases rather than rental income. The transaction simplifies our corporate
structure, enables us to better control our portfolio of hotels, and is
expected to be accretive to our future earnings and cash flows.
 
   During February 2001, the Board of Directors of Host REIT approved the
acquisition by our TRS of the interests in our non-controlled subsidiaries
held by the Host Marriott Statutory Employee/Charitable Trust for
approximately $2 million, which is also permitted as a result of the REIT
Modernization Act. If the transaction is consummated, and there can be no
assurance that it will be consummated, on a consolidated basis our results of
operations will reflect the revenues and expenses generated by the two taxable
corporations, and our consolidated balance sheets will include the various
assets and related liabilities held by the two taxable corporations, which
were $354 million and $245 million as of December 31, 2000. Approximately $26
million of the subsidiaries' debt principal matures during 2001. In addition,
we will consolidate three additional full-service properties, one located in
Missouri, and two located in Mexico City, Mexico.
 
   During the year, we focused on maintaining the strength and flexibility of
our balance sheet in order to allow us the opportunity to selectively choose
investment alternatives that will further enhance shareholder value.
 
  .  During 1999 and the first quarter of 2000, our primary use of free cash
     flow and asset sales proceeds was the funding of Host REIT's stock
     buyback program. In the aggregate, we spent approximately $150 million
     for a total reduction of 16.2 million equivalent units on a fully
     diluted basis.
 
  .  During June 2000, we modified our bank credit facility in order to
     provide the company greater financial flexibility. As modified, the
     total facility has been permanently reduced to $775 million, and the
     original term was extended for two additional years.
 
                                      34

<PAGE>
 
  .  In October 2000, we issued $250 million 9 1/4% Series F senior notes due
     in 2007, which were exchanged for Series G senior notes in March 2001.
 
  .  During March 2001, Host REIT issued 5.2 million shares of 10% Class C
     preferred stock, for net proceeds of $125.8 million, and we issued an
     equivalent security, the Class C Preferred Limited Partner Units.
 
   We and Marriott International closed on the settlement with plaintiffs to
resolve specific litigation involving seven limited partnerships in which we
acted as general partner. The settlement involved an acquisition during the
fourth quarter of 2000, of the limited partner interests in two partnerships
by a joint venture between one of our affiliates and a subsidiary of Marriott
International, the contribution by our non-controlled subsidiaries of their
general partnership interests in the partnerships and cash payments to
partners in the other five partnerships, in exchange for resolution of claims
against all defendants in all seven partnerships. Our total share of the cash
required to resolve the litigation, including amounts paid by our non-
controlled subsidiary, was approximately $112 million. As a result of the
settlement, we recorded a one-time non-recurring, pre-tax charge of $40
million in the fourth quarter of 1999.
 
Results of Operations
 
   Our historical revenues for 2000 and 1999 represent rental income on
leases, net gains on property transactions, interest income and equity in
earnings affiliates. Expenses represent specific owner costs including real
estate and property taxes, property insurance and ground and equipment rent.
For 1998, we reported gross property level sales from our hotels and,
accordingly, our expenses included all property level costs including
depreciation, management fees, real and personal property taxes, ground
building and equipment rent, property insurance and other costs. Beginning
January 1, 2001, we will again report the gross property level results from
our hotels as a result of changes in the REIT tax laws and the subsequent
acquisition by the TRS of the Crestline Lessee Entities. As a result, our 2001
results will not be comparable to the historical reported amounts for 2000 and
1999. In order to provide a clearer understanding and comparability of our
results of operations we have presented unaudited pro forma statements of
operations for 2000 and 1999, adjusted to reflect the acquisition of the
Crestline Lessee Entities as if it occurred on January 1, 1999, and a
discussion of the results thereof beginning on page 39 in addition to our
discussion of the historical results.
 
2000 Compared to 1999 (Historical)
 
   Revenues. Revenues increased $97 million, or 7%, to approximately $1.5
billion for 2000. Gross hotel sales, which is used in the determination of
rental income for 2000, increased $231 million or 5% over 1999 amounts as is
shown in the following table.

--------
(1)   Gross hotel sales do not represent our reported revenues for 2000 and
      1999, but are used to compute our reported rental income.
 
   Rental income increased $95 million, or 7%, to approximately $1.4 billion
for 2000, primarily driven by the growth in room revenues generated per
available room or REVPAR for comparable properties, completion of the new
Tampa Waterside Marriott in February 2000, and the opening of a 500-room
expansion at the Orlando
 
                                      35

<PAGE>
 
World Center Marriott in June 2000, partially offset by the sale of five
properties (1,577 rooms) in 1999. REVPAR increased 6.6% to $123.50 for 2000
for comparable properties, which consist of the 118 properties owned, directly
or indirectly, by us for the same period of time in each period covered,
excluding one property that sustained substantial fire damage during 2000, two
properties where significant expansion at the hotels affected operations, and
the Tampa Waterside Marriott, which opened in February 2000. On a comparable
basis, average room rates increased approximately 6.3%, while average
occupancy increased less than one percentage point for 2000.
 
   Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization increased $38
million or 13% during 2000, reflecting an increase in depreciable assets,
which is primarily the result of capital projects placed in service in 2000,
including the Tampa Waterside Marriott and expansion at the Orlando World
Center Marriott, partially offset by net asset disposals of approximately $174
million in connection with the sale of five hotels during 1999.
 
   Property-level Owner Expenses. Property-level owner expenses primarily
consist of property taxes, insurance, and ground and equipment rent. These
expenses increased $8 million, or 3%, to $272 million for 2000, primarily due
to an increase in ground lease expense, which is commensurate with the
increase in hotel sales, and an increase in equipment rent expense due to
technology initiatives at the hotels during 2000.
 
   Minority Interest. Minority interest expense increased $6 million to $27
million for 2000, primarily reflecting the improved property-level results, as
previously discussed, to include those properties that are not wholly-owned by
us.
 
   Interest Expense. Interest expense decreased less than 1% to $466 million
in 2000, primarily due to the $75 million reduction in the convertible debt
obligation to Host REIT during the fourth quarter of 1999 and first quarter of
2000, and the decrease in the outstanding balance of the bank credit facility
during 2000 compared to 1999, partially offset by the issuance of the Series F
senior notes in October 2000.
 
   Corporate Expenses. Corporate expenses increased $8 million to $42 million
for 2000, resulting primarily from an increase in compensation expense related
to employee stock plans.
 
   Loss on Litigation Settlement. In connection with a proposed settlement for
litigation related to seven limited service partnerships discussed above, we
recorded a non-recurring charge of $40 million during the fourth quarter of
1999.
 
   Lease Repurchase Expense. In connection with the execution of a definitive
agreement with Crestline in November 2000 for the termination of the Crestline
leases through the purchase and sale of the Crestline Lessee Entities by our
TRS for $207 million in cash, we recorded a non-recurring loss provision of
$207 million during the fourth quarter of 2000.
 
   Income Tax Benefit. In connection with the lease repurchase expense
recognized during the fourth quarter of 2000, we recognized an income tax
benefit of $82 million, because for income tax purposes, the acquisition is
recognized as an asset that will be amortized over the remaining term of the
leases. In addition, during 2000 we favorably resolved certain tax
contingencies and reversed $32 million of our net tax liabilities into income
through the tax provision during the year ended December 31, 2000.
 
   Extraordinary Gain (Loss). During 2000, we recorded an extraordinary loss
of approximately $2 million representing the write off of deferred financing
costs and certain fees paid to our lender in connection with the renegotiation
of the bank credit facility
 
   During the first quarter of 2000, we extinguished approximately $22 million
of the convertible debt obligation to Host REIT through the purchase of 0.4
million shares of Host REIT's Convertible Preferred Securities on the open
market. We recorded an extraordinary gain of $7 million on this transaction,
based on the discount at which we purchased the Convertible Preferred
Securities. We also recorded an extraordinary loss of $1 million representing
the write-off of deferred financing costs in connection with the early
extinguishment.
 
                                      36

<PAGE>
 
   In connection with the refinancing of the mortgage and renegotiation of the
management agreement on the New York Marriott Marquis hotel, we recognized an
extraordinary gain of $14 million on the forgiveness of debt in the form of
accrued incentive management fees during 1999.
 
   An extraordinary loss of $3 million representing the write-off of deferred
financing fees occurred in July 1999 when the mortgage debt for eight
properties, including the New York Marriott Marquis hotel, was refinanced. In
connection with this refinancing, the interest rate swap agreements associated
with some of the original debt were terminated and an extraordinary gain of $8
million was recognized.
 
   An extraordinary loss of $2 million representing the write-off of deferred
financing fees occurred during the fourth quarter of 1999 when prepayments
totaling $225 million were made to permanently reduce the outstanding balance
of the term loan portion of the Bank Credit Facility to $125 million.
 
   During the fourth quarter of 1999, we extinguished approximately $53
million of the convertible debt obligation to Host REIT through the purchase
of 1.1 million shares of Host REIT's Convertible Preferred Securities on the
open market. We recorded an extraordinary gain of $14 million on this
transaction, based on the discount at which we purchased the Convertible
Preferred Securities. We also recorded an extraordinary loss of $2 million
representing the write-off of deferred financing fees in connection with the
extinguishment.
 
   Net Income. Our net income in 2000 was $207 million, compared to $285
million in 1999. Basic and diluted earnings per common unit was $.66 and $.65,
respectively, for 2000, compared to $.96 and $.93, respectively, in 1999.
 
   Net Income Available to Common Unitholders. Our net income available to
common unitholders in 2000 was $187 million, compared to $279 million in 1999,
reflecting distributions of $20 million in 2000 on the preferred limited
partner units which were issued during the second half of 1999.
 
1999 Compared to 1998 (Historical)
 
   Revenues. Revenues decreased $2.2 billion, or 61%, to $1.4 billion for
1999. As discussed above, our revenues and operating profit are not comparable
to prior years, primarily due to the leasing of our hotels as a result of the
REIT conversion. However, gross hotel sales, which is used in the
determination of rental income for 1999, increased $836 million or 24% over
1998 amounts as is shown in the following table. Rental income for 1999 is
computed based on gross hotel sales.

(1)   1999 gross hotel sales do not represent our reported revenues for 1999.
      Rather, rental income, which is computed based on gross hotel sales,
      represents our reported revenues for 1999.
 
   Lodging results for 1999 were primarily driven by the addition of 36
properties in 1998. The increase in hotel sales also reflects the growth in
room revenues generated per available room or REVPAR. For comparable
properties, REVPAR increased 4.1%, to $115.13 for 1999. On a comparable basis,
average room rates increased approximately 3.8% for the year, while average
occupancy increased less than one percentage point for the year.

<PAGE>
 
   Interest income decreased $12 million or 24% as a result of a lower level
of cash and marketable securities held during 1999 compared to 1998.
 
   The net gain on property transactions for 1999 primarily represents the $24
million recognized on the sale of five properties, including the sale of the
Ritz-Carlton Boston and the El Paso Marriott during the fourth quarter of
1999.
 
   Expenses. As discussed above, hotel revenues and hotel operating costs are
not comparable with the prior year. The lessee pays specified direct property-
level costs including management fees and we receive a rent payment, which is
generally calculated as a percentage of revenue, subject to a minimum level,
net of certain property-level owner costs. All of these costs were our
expenses in 1998. Property-level owner costs which are comparable, including
depreciation, property taxes, property insurance, ground and equipment rent,
increased 8% to $557 million for 1999 versus 1998, primarily reflecting the
depreciation from 36 properties acquired during 1998.
 
   Minority Interest. Minority interest expense decreased $31 million to $21
million in 1999, primarily reflecting the impact of the consolidation of
partnerships which occurred as part of the REIT conversion.
 
   Interest Expense. Interest expense increased 40% to $469 million in 1999,
primarily due to the issuance of senior notes, establishment of a new credit
facility and additional mortgage debt on properties acquired in 1998. In
addition, in 1999, we recognized $38 million in interest expense related to
the convertible debt obligation to Host Marriott Corporation, which supports
the dividends paid by Host REIT to holders of the Convertible Preferred
Securities. In 1998, these dividends, totaling $37 million, were a separate
component of expense.
 
   Corporate Expenses. Corporate expenses decreased $14 million to $34 million
in 1999, resulting primarily from lower staffing levels after the Crestline
spin-off, lower costs associated with reduced acquisition activity and lower
costs related to various stock compensation plans.
 
   Loss on Litigation. In connection with a proposed settlement for litigation
related to six limited service partnerships we have recorded a one-time, non-
recurring charge of $40 million.
 
   Income from Discontinued Operations. Income from discontinued operations
represents the senior living communities business' results of operations for
1998.
 
   Extraordinary Gain (Loss). In connection with the refinancing of the
mortgage and renegotiation of the management agreement on the New York
Marriott Marquis Hotel, we recognized and extraordinary gain of $14 million on
the forgiveness of debt in the form of accrued incentive management fees.
 
   An extraordinary loss of $3 million representing the write-off of deferred
financing fees occurred in July 1999 when the mortgage debt for eight
properties was refinanced, including the New York Marriott Marquis Hotel. In
connection with this refinancing, the interest rate swap agreements associated
with some of the original debt were terminated and an extraordinary gain of $8
million was recognized.
 
   An extraordinary loss of $2 million representing the write-off of deferred
financing fees occurred during the fourth quarter of 1999 when prepayments
totaling $225 million were made to permanently reduce the outstanding balance
of the term loan portion of the Bank Credit Facility to $125 million.
 
   During the fourth quarter of 1999, we extinguished approximately $53
million of the convertible debt obligation to Host Marriott through the
purchase of 1.1 million shares of Host REIT's Convertible Preferred Securities
on the open market. We recorded an extraordinary gain of $14 million on this
transaction, based on the discount at which we purchased the Convertible
Preferred Securities. We also recorded an extraordinary loss of $2 million
representing the write-off of deferred financing fees in connection with the
early extinguishment.
 
                                      38

   In connection with the purchase of the old senior notes, we recognized an
extraordinary loss of $148 million in the third quarter of 1998, which
represents the bond premium and consent payments totaling approximately $175
million and the write-off of deferred financing fees of approximately $52
million related to the old senior notes, net of taxes.
 
   Net Income (Loss). Our net income in 1999 was $285 million, compared to $47
million in 1998. Basic and diluted earnings per common unit was $.96 and $.93
for 1999, compared to $.22 and $.27 in 1998.
 
   Net Income (Loss) Available to Common Unitholders. Our net income available
to common unitholders in 1999 was $279 million, compared to $47 million in
1998, reflecting dividends of $6 million in 1999 on the Class A and Class B
Preferred Units which were issued during 1999.
 
2000 Compared to 1999 (Pro Forma)
 
   Because of the significant changes to our corporate structure as a result
of our acquisition of the Crestline Lessee Entities during January 2001,
management believes that a discussion of our pro forma results of operations
is meaningful and relevant to an investor's understanding of our present and
future operations. The pro forma results of operations set forth below are
based on the audited consolidated statements of operations for the years ended
December 31, 2000 and 1999, and are only adjusted to reflect the January 2001
acquisition of the Crestline Lessee Entities for $207 million in cash as if
the transaction occurred at the beginning of 1999. The following pro forma
results do not include adjustments for any transactions other than the
Crestline lease repurchase and are not presented in accordance with Article 11
of SEC Regulation S-X.
 
   As a result of the Crestline acquisition, effective January 1, 2001, we
lease 116 of our full-service hotels to our TRS, and therefore, our
consolidated operations with respect to those hotels will represent property-
level revenues and expenses rather than rental income from third-party
lessees. In addition, the net income applicable to the TRS will be subject to
federal and state income taxes. A non-recurring pre-tax loss of $207 million
net of a tax benefit of $82 million that was recorded in our historical
results of operations for the fourth quarter of 2000 is excluded from the pro
forma results of operations for 2000.
 
   The pro forma adjustments to reflect the acquisition of the Crestline
Lessee Entities are as follows:
 
  .  record hotel-level revenues and expenses and reduce historical rental
     income with respect to the 116 properties;
 
  .  reduce historical interest income for amounts related to the working
     capital note with Crestline;
 
  .  reduce historical equity in earnings of affiliates for interest earned
     at our non-controlled subsidiary on the related FF&E loans with
     Crestline;
 
  .  record interest expense related to the additional borrowings from the 9
     1/4% Series F senior notes to fund the $207 million cash payment;
 
  .  record the minority interest effect related to the outside ownership in
     the operating partnership; and
 
  .  record the tax provision attributable to the income of the TRS at an
     effective rate of 39.5%.
 
   The unaudited pro forma financial information does not purport to represent
what our results of operations or financial condition would actually have been
if the transaction had in fact occurred at the beginning of 1999, or to
project our results of operations or financial condition for any future
period. The unaudited pro forma financial information is based upon available
information and upon assumptions and estimates that we believe are reasonable
under the circumstances. The following unaudited pro forma financial
information should be read in conjunction with our audited financial
statements contained in this annual report.

</TABLE>

 
   Revenues. Revenues increased $274 million, or 7%, to $4.1 billion for 2000
from $3.9 billion for 1999. Our revenue and operating profit were impacted by
improved results for comparable full-service hotel properties, and the
addition of a full-service hotel property, the Tampa Waterside Marriott, and a
significant expansion (500 rooms) at the Orlando World Center Marriott during
2000.
 
                                      40

<PAGE>
 
   Hotel sales, which include room sales, food and beverage sales, and other
ancillary sales such as telephone sales, increased $287 million, or 8%, to
over $3.9 billion in 2000. The strong hotel results reflect the 6.6% REVPAR
increase for our comparable properties and the aforementioned developments
during 2000. Rental income, which primarily represents income on third party
leases with respect to five of our full-service hotels, decreased $10 million
or 5% to $178 million.
 
   Operating Costs and Expenses. Operating costs and expenses principally
consist of property-level operating costs, depreciation, management fees, real
and personal property taxes, ground building and equipment rent, insurance and
certain other costs. Operating costs and expenses increased $229 million to
$3.3 billion for 2000, primarily representing increased hotel operating costs.
Hotel operating costs increased $136 million, or 8% to $1.8 billion for 2000,
which is commensurate with the increase in hotel sales. As a percentage of
hotel revenues, hotel operating costs and expenses were 47% for 2000 and 1999.
The significant increases in REVPAR were offset by increases in management
fees and property-level operating costs, including higher labor costs in
certain markets.
 
   Operating Profit. As a result of the changes in revenues and operating
costs and expenses discussed above, our operating profit increased $45
million, or 5%, to $876 million for 2000. Operating profit was approximately
21% of total revenues for both 2000 and 1999.
 
   Minority Interest. Minority interest expense increased $6 million to $27
million for 2000, primarily reflecting the improved property-level results, as
previously discussed, to include those properties that are not wholly-owned by
us.
 
   Loss on Litigation. In connection with a proposed settlement for litigation
related to seven limited service partnerships discussed above, we recorded a
non-recurring charge of $40 million during the fourth quarter of 1999.
 
   Income Tax Provision. Income of the TRS will be subject to federal and
state income taxes.
 
   Income Before Extraordinary Items. Income Before Extraordinary Items for
2000 was $337 million compared to $264 million for 1999. Basic earnings before
extraordinary items per common share was $1.12 and $.88 for 2000 and 1999,
respectively. Diluted earning before extraordinary items per common share was
$1.10 and $.86 for 2000 and 1999, respectively.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
   Cash and cash equivalents were $313 million and $277 million at December
31, 2000 and December 31, 1999, respectively. Cash from operations increased
$174 million to $534 million in 2000, primarily reflecting improved results of
operations as previously discussed, and changes in other liabilities, which
were a source of cash of $67 million in 2000, primarily due to the $125
million accrual, net of taxes, for the Crestline lease repurchase expense
which was not paid until January 2001, and a use of cash of $60 million in
1999 primarily reflecting cash payments for REIT Conversion expenses which
were accrued in 1998.
 
   Cash used in investing activities was $448 million and $176 million in 2000
and 1999, respectively. Cash used in investing activities includes capital
expenditures of $379 million and $361 million and acquisitions for $40 million
and $29 million in 2000 and 1999, respectively. Significant investing
activities during 2000 and 1999 include:
 
  .   In December 2000, a joint venture formed by us (through non-controlled
      subsidiaries) and Marriott International acquired the partnership
      interests in Courtyard by Marriott Limited Partnership and Courtyard by
      Marriott II Limited Partnership for an aggregate payment of
      approximately $372 million plus interest and legal fees, of which we
      paid approximately $79 million. The joint venture acquired the
      partnerships by acquiring partnership units pursuant to a tender offer
      for such units followed by a merger
 
                                      41

<PAGE>
 
   of each of CBM I and CBM II with and into subsidiaries of the joint
   venture. The joint venture financed the acquisition with mezzanine
   indebtedness borrowed from Marriott International, cash and other assets
   contributed by us (through our non-controlled subsidiaries) including
   Rockledge's existing general partner and limited partner interests in the
   partnerships, and cash and other sets contributed by Marriott
   International. We own a 50% interest in the joint venture.
 
  .   In late June 2000, an expansion that included the additions of a 500-
      room tower and 15,000 square feet of meeting space at the Orlando World
      Center Marriott was placed in service at an approximate development
      cost of $88 million, of which $39 million was expended during 2000.
 
  .   In May 2000, we acquired a non-controlling partnership interest in the
      JWDC Limited Partnership, which owns the JW Marriott Hotel, a 772-room
      hotel located on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC. We previously
      held a small interest in the venture, and invested an additional $40
      million in the form of a co-general partner and limited partner
      interest.
 
  .   In October 1999, the Company was paid $65 million in satisfaction of
      the mortgage note secured by an additional hotel that was acquired in
      connection with the Blackstone Acquisition.
 
  .   Property and equipment balances include $135 million and $243 million
      for construction in progress as of December 31, 2000 and December 31,
      1999, respectively. The reduction in construction in progress is due to
      the completion of the Tampa Waterside Marriott, which was placed in
      service in February 2000 and the expansion at the Orlando World Center
      Marriott, which was placed in service in late June 2000. The balance as
      of December 31, 2000, primarily relates to properties in Naples,
      Orlando, San Diego, and various other expansion and development
      projects.
 
   Cash used in financing activities was $50 million and $343 million in 2000
and 1999, respectively.
 
   We believe cash payments will be required for the recognition of certain
deferred tax items and the settlement of certain audits of prior years' tax
returns with the Internal Revenue Service and state tax authorities. We made
net payments to certain states and the IRS of approximately $14 million and
$27 million in 1999 and 1998, respectively, and made additional payments of
$24 million in the first quarter of 2001. We also believe cash payments will
be needed to fund specific development projects, all of which are discussed in
this annual report. The sources of future cash outflows are dependent on cash
from operations and the amount of additional debt, if any, necessary for
payment upon the final resolution of these matters.
 
   As of December 31, 2000, our total consolidated debt was approximately $5.8
billion. Our debt is comprised of $2.8 billion in unsecured senior notes, $2.3
billion in non-recourse mortgage debt, $150 million outstanding under the term
loan portion of the $775 million bank credit facility, and the $492 million
convertible debt obligation to Host REIT.
 
   Since August 1998, we have issued or refinanced more than $3.9 billion of
debt, as is described below, in order to reduce the risk and volatility in our
capital structure. The net effect of these transactions has been to virtually
eliminate all of our near term maturities, with only $8 million maturing
through 2001, reduce our weighted average interest rate by approximately 70
basis points, and extend our average maturity by over one year. As a result,
our weighted average rate is now approximately 8.2%, and our average maturity
is approximately seven years, with 95% of our debt having fixed interest
rates. Significant debt transactions include:
 
  .   As of December 31, 2000, $150 million was outstanding under the term
      loan portion of the bank credit facility, while the available capacity
      under the revolving credit portion of the bank credit facility was $625
      million. The bank credit facility was renegotiated in June 2000 for
      $775 million. The credit facility's term was extended for two
      additional years, through August 2003. Borrowings under the credit
      facility generally bear interest at the Eurodollar rate plus 2.25%
      (9.04% at December 31, 2000), and the interest rate and a commitment
      fee on the unused portion of the facility fluctuate based on specified
      financial ratios. We funded a portion of the $207 million cash payment
      to acquire the Crestline Lessee Entities through increased borrowings
      under the revolver portion of the bank credit facility of $40 million
      during
 
                                      42

<PAGE>
 
   January 2001, and we borrowed an additional $50 million and $25 million in
   February 2001 and March 2001, respectively, for general corporate
   purposes.
 
  .  In October 2000, we issued $250 million of 9 1/4% Series F senior notes
     due in 2007, under the same indenture and with the same covenants as the
     Series A, Series B, Series C, and Series E senior notes. The net
     proceeds to the Company were approximately $245 million, after
     commissions and expenses of approximately $5 million. In March 2001, the
     Series F Senior notes were exchanged on a one-for-one basis for Series G
     Senior notes, which are freely transferable by the holders.
 
  .  In February 2000, we refinanced the $80 million mortgage on Marriott's
     Harbor Beach Resort property in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The new
     mortgage is for $84 million, at a rate of 8.58%, and matures in March
     2007.
 
  .  In February 1999, we issued $300 million of 8 3/8% Series D senior notes
     due 2006 and used the proceeds to refinance, or purchase, debt which had
     been assumed through the merger of some partnerships or the purchase of
     hotel properties in connection with the REIT conversion in December
     1998. We repaid a $40 million variable rate mortgage with a portion of
     the proceeds, and terminated the associated swap agreement, incurring a
     termination fee of approximately $1 million. In August 1999, the Series
     D Senior notes were exchanged on a one-for-one basis for Series E Senior
     notes, which are freely transferable by the holders.
 
  .  In April 1999, a subsidiary of ours completed the refinancing of the
     $245 million mortgage on the New York Marriott Marquis Hotel, maturing
     in June 2000. In connection with the refinancing, we renegotiated the
     hotel's management agreement and recognized an extraordinary gain of $14
     million on the forgiveness of accrued incentive management fees by the
     manager. This mortgage was subsequently refinanced as part of the $665
     million financing agreement discussed below.
 
  .  In June 1999, we refinanced the debt on the San Diego Marriott Hotel and
     Marina. The mortgage is for $195 million and a term of 10 years at a
     rate of 8.45%. In addition, we entered into a mortgage for the
     Philadelphia Marriott expansion in July 1999 for $23 million at an
     interest rate of approximately 8.6%, maturing in 2009.
 
  .  In July 1999, we entered into a financing agreement pursuant to which we
     borrowed $665 million due 2009 at a fixed rate of 7.47 percent. Eight of
     our hotels serve as collateral for the agreement. In connection with
     this refinancing, an extraordinary loss of $3 million was recognized,
     representing the write-off of deferred financing fees. The proceeds from
     this financing were used to refinance existing mortgage indebtedness
     maturing at various times through 2000, including approximately $590
     million of outstanding variable rate mortgage debt, and to terminate the
     related interest rate swap agreements, recognizing an extraordinary gain
     of approximately $8 million. As a result of the refinancing we no longer
     have any interest rate swap agreements outstanding.
 
  .  In August 1999, we made a prepayment of $19 million to pay down in full
     the mezzanine mortgage on the Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa. In
     September 1999, we made a prepayment of $45 million to pay down in full
     the mortgage note on the Philadelphia Four Seasons Hotel.
 
  .  In addition to the capital resources provided by our debt financings, in
     December 1996, one of our wholly-owned subsidiary trusts, issued 11
     million shares of 6 3/4% Convertible Quarterly Income Preferred
     Securities, with a liquidation preference of $50 per share for a total
     liquidation amount of $550 million. Proceeds from the issuance were
     invested in 6 3/4% Convertible Subordinated Debentures due December 2,
     2026 issued by us, which are the trust's sole assets. During 2000, we
     repurchased .4 million shares of the Convertible Preferred Securities as
     part of the stock repurchase plan discussed below. Since the inception
     of the repurchase program in September 1999, 1.5 million shares of the
     Convertible Preferred Securities have been repurchased.
 
   Significant equity financings include:
 
  .  Distributions in 2000 reflect the $0.86 cash distribution per OP Unit
     paid during the year. In addition, on December 18, 2000, the Board of
     Directors declared a regular cash distribution of $0.26 per OP Unit
 
                                      43

<PAGE>
 
   which was paid on January 12, 2001. 1999 distributions reflect the $73
   million special dividend declared in December 1998 in connection with the
   REIT Conversion, as well as the $0.63 distribution per OP Unit paid as of
   December 31, 1999.
 
  . In September 1999, the Board of Directors of Host REIT announced our
    intention to repurchase, from time to time, up to 22 million shares of
    Host REIT common stock, OP Units, or an amount of Host REIT's Convertible
    Preferred Securities which are convertible into a like number of shares
    of Host REIT's common stock based upon the specified conversion ratio.
    For the year ended December 31, 2000, we purchased approximately 4.9
    million shares of common stock, .4 million shares of the Convertible
    Preferred Securities, and .3 million OP Units for approximately $62
    million. Since the inception of the repurchase program, we spent, in the

FFO and EBITDA
 
   We consider Comparative Funds from Operations (Comparative FFO), which
represents FFO as defined by the National Association of Real Estate
Investment Trusts adjusted for significant non-recurring items detailed in the
chart below, and our EBITDA to be indicative measures of our operating
performance due to the significance of our long-lived assets. Comparative FFO
and EBITDA are also useful in measuring our ability to service debt, fund
capital expenditures and expand our business. Furthermore, management believes
that Comparative FFO and EBITDA are meaningful disclosures that will help
unitholders and the investment community to better understand our financial
performance, including comparing our performance to other REITs. However,
Comparative FFO and EBITDA as presented may not be comparable to amounts
calculated by other companies. This information should not be considered as an
alternative to net income, operating profit, cash from operations, or any
other operating or liquidity performance measure prescribed by accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States. Cash expenditures for
various long-term assets, interest expense (for EBITDA purposes only) and
income taxes have been, and will be incurred which are not reflected in the
EBITDA and Comparative FFO presentation.

   Our interest coverage, defined as EBITDA divided by cash interest expense,
was 2.4 times, 2.2 times, and 2.7 times for 2000, 1999, and 1998,
respectively. The ratio of earnings to fixed charges was 1.2 to 1.0, 1.5 to
1.0, and 1.5 to 1.0 in 2000, 1999, and 1998, respectively.
 
   Leases. In addition to our full-service hotels, we also lease some property
and equipment under noncancelable operating leases, including the long-term
ground leases for some of our hotels, generally with multiple renewal options.
The leases related to the 53 Courtyard properties and 18 Residence Inn
properties sold during 1995 and 1996, are nonrecourse to us and contain
provisions for the payment of contingent rentals based on a percentage of
sales in excess of stipulated amounts. We remain contingently liable on some
leases related to divested non-lodging properties. Such contingent liabilities
aggregated $68 million at December 31, 2000. However, management considers the
likelihood of any substantial funding related to these divested properties'
leases to be remote.
 
   Inflation. Our hotel lodging properties have been impacted by inflation
through its effect on increasing costs and on the managers' ability to
increase room rates. Unlike other real estate, hotels have the ability to
change room rates on a daily basis, so the impact of higher inflation often
can be passed on to customers.
 
   Approximately 95% of our debt bears interest at fixed rates. This debt
structure largely mitigates the impact of changes in the rate of inflation on
future interest costs. We have some financial instruments that are sensitive
to changes in interest rates. The interest recognized on the debt obligations
is based on various LIBOR terms, which ranged from 6.6% to 6.8% and 5.6% to
5.9% at December 31, 2000 and December 31, 1999, respectively.
 
   In July 1999, we completed the refinancing of approximately $588 million of
outstanding variable rate mortgage debt and terminated the related interest
rate swap agreements. In June 1999, we completed the refinancing of
approximately $196 million of outstanding variable rate mortgage debt. As a
result of the refinancing we no longer have any interest rate swap agreements
outstanding. Our remaining variable debt consists of the credit facility and
the mortgage debt on the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island property which totaled
$354 million at March 16, 2001.
 
   New Accounting Standards. As discussed in note 1 to the consolidated
financial statements, in December 1999, we changed our method of accounting
for contingent rental revenues to conform to the Commission's Staff Accounting
Bulletin (SAB) No. 101. As a result, contingent rental revenue was deferred on
the balance sheet until certain revenue thresholds are realized. We adopted
SAB No. 101 with retroactive effect beginning January 1, 1999 to conform to
the new presentation. SAB No. 101 had no impact on full-year 2000 and 1999
revenues, net income, or earnings per share because all rental revenues
considered contingent under SAB No. 101 were earned as of December 31, 2000
and 1999. The change in accounting principle has no effect on years prior to
1999 because percentage rent relates to rental income on our leases, which
began in 1999.
 
   In June 1998, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued SFAS No. 133,
"Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities." The Statement
establishes accounting and reporting standards requiring that every derivative
instrument (including specified derivative instruments embedded in other
contracts) be recorded in the balance sheet as either an asset or liability
measured at its fair value. The Statement requires that changes in the
derivative's fair value be recognized currently in earnings unless specific
hedge accounting criteria are met. Special accounting for qualifying hedges
allows a derivative's gains and losses to offset related results on the hedged
item in the income statement and requires that a company must formally
document, designate and assess the effectiveness of transactions that receive
hedge accounting. SFAS No. 133 is effective for fiscal years beginning after
June 15, 2000. We determined that there will be no impact from the
implementation of SFAS No. 133.

      portion of the bank credit facility during the first quarter of 2001 to
      partially fund the acquisition of the Crestline Lessee Entities and for
      general corporate purposes.
(2)   Interest rates are based on various LIBOR terms plus certain basis
      points which range from 200 to 225 basis points. The one-month LIBOR
      rate at December 31, 2000 was 6.6%. We have assumed for purposes of this
      presentation that the LIBOR rate remains unchanged. A 100 basis point
      increase in LIBOR would increase our interest rate expense by
      approximately $2 million per year.

partners' capital and cash flows of Host Marriott, L.P. for each of the three
fiscal years in the period ended December 31, 2000. These financial statements
and the schedule referred to below are the responsibility of the Company's
management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial
statements based on our audits.
 
   We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally
accepted in the United States. Those standards require that we plan and
perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the
consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit
includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and
disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the
accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as
well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe
that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
   In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above
present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Host
Marriott, L.P. and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2000 and 1999, and the
results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the three fiscal
years in the period ended December 31, 2000 in conformity with accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States.
 
   Our audits were made for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic
financial statements taken as a whole. The schedule listed in the index at

Item 14(a)(2) is presented for purposes of complying with the Securities and
Exchange Commission's rules and are not part of the basic financial
statements. This schedule has been subjected to the auditing procedures
applied in our audit of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, is
fairly stated in all material respects to the financial data required to be
set forth therein in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a
whole.

                  NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
 Description of Business
 
   Host Marriott L.P. ("Host LP" or the "Operating Partnership"), a Delaware
limited partnership, operating through an umbrella partnership structure with
Host Marriott Corporation ("Host REIT") as the sole general partner, is
primarily the owner of hotel properties. Host REIT operates as a self-managed
and self-administered real estate investment trust ("REIT") with its
operations conducted solely through the Operating Partnership and its
subsidiaries. Due to certain tax laws restricting REITs from deriving revenues
directly from the operations of hotels, effective January 1, 1999, Host LP
leased substantially all of the hotels to subsidiaries of Crestline Capital
Corporation ("Crestline") and certain other lessees as further discussed at
Note 10.
 
   The Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999 ("REIT Modernization Act")
amended the tax laws to permit REITs, effective January 1, 2001, to lease
hotels to a subsidiary that qualifies as a taxable REIT subsidiary ("TRS").
Accordingly, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Host LP effectively terminated the
leases with Crestline by acquiring the entities owning the leasehold interests
with respect to 116 of the full-service hotels from Crestline effective
January 1, 2001 (see Note 2).
 
   As of December 31, 2000, the Company owned, or had controlling interests
in, 122 upscale and luxury, full-service hotel lodging properties generally
located throughout the United States and Canada and operated primarily under
the Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, Hilton, Hyatt and Swissotel brand
names. Of these properties, 109 are managed or franchised by Marriott
International, Inc. and its subsidiaries ("Marriott International"). Host REIT
also has economic, non-voting interests in certain Non-Controlled
Subsidiaries, whose hotels are also managed by Marriott International (see
Note 5).
 
 Basis of Presentation
 
   On December 15, 1998, shareholders of Host Marriott Corporation, ("Host
Marriott"), a Delaware corporation and the predecessor to Host REIT, approved
a plan to reorganize Host Marriott's business operations through the spin-off
of Host Marriott's senior living business as part of Crestline and the
contribution of Host Marriott's hotels and certain other assets and
liabilities to a newly formed Delaware limited partnership, Host LP, Host
Marriott merged into HMC Merger Corporation (the "Merger"), a newly formed
Maryland corporation (renamed Host Marriott Corporation) which has elected to
be treated, effective January 1, 1999, as a REIT and is the sole general
partner of the Operating Partnership. Host Marriott and its subsidiaries'
contribution of its hotels and certain assets and liabilities to the Operating
Partnership and its subsidiaries (the "Contribution") in exchange for units of
partnership interest in the Operating Partnership ("OP Units") was accounted
for at Host Marriott's historical basis. As of December 31, 2000, Host REIT
owned approximately 78% of the Operating Partnership.
 
   On February 7, 2001, certain limited partners converted 12.5 million OP
Units to Host REIT common shares and immediately sold them to an underwriter
for sale on the open market. As a result, Host REIT now owns approximately 82%
of the Operating Partnership. The Company received no proceeds as a result of
the transaction.
 
   In these consolidated financial statements, the "Company" or "Host
Marriott" refers to Host Marriott Corporation before, and Host LP after Host
Marriott Corporation's conversion to a REIT (the "REIT Conversion"). Host
Marriott Corporation is presented as the predecessor to the Operating
Partnership since the Operating Partnership and its subsidiaries received
substantially all of the continuing operations, assets and liabilities of Host
Marriott Corporation and its subsidiaries.

            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued)
 
 
   On December 29, 1998, the Company completed the previously discussed spin-
off of Crestline (see Note 2), through a taxable stock dividend to its
shareholders. Each Host Marriott shareholder of record on December 28, 1998
received one share of Crestline for every ten shares of Host Marriott common
stock owned (the "Distribution").
 
   As a result of the Distribution, the Company's financial statements were
restated to present the senior living communities business results of
operations and cash flows as discontinued operations. See Note 2 for further
discussion of the Distribution.
 
 Principles of Consolidation
 
   The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company
and its subsidiaries and controlled affiliates. Investments in affiliates over
which the Company has the ability to exercise significant influence, but does
not control, are accounted for using the equity method. All material
intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated.
 
 Fiscal Year End Change
 
   The U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, requires REITs to file
their U.S. income tax return on a calendar year basis. Accordingly in 1998,
the Company changed its fiscal year-end to December 31 for both financial and
tax reporting requirements. Previously, the Company's fiscal year ended on the
Friday nearest to December 31.
 
 Revenues
 
   The Company's 2000 and 1999 revenues primarily represent the rental income
from its leased hotels, net gains on property transactions, interest income
and equity in earnings of affiliates. The rent due under each lease is the
greater of base rent or percentage rent, as defined. Percentage rent
applicable to room, food and beverage and other types of hotel revenue varies
by lease and is calculated by multiplying fixed percentages by the total
amounts of such revenues over specified threshold amounts. Both the minimum
rent and the revenue thresholds used in computing percentage rents are subject
to annual adjustments based on increases in the United States Consumer Price
Index and the Labor Index, as defined. As of year end 2000 and 1999, all
annual thresholds were achieved.
 
   The comparison of the 2000 and 1999 results with 1998 is also affected by a
change in the reporting period for the Company's hotels not managed by
Marriott International. In prior years, operations for certain of the
Company's hotels were recorded from the beginning of December of the prior
year to November of the current year due to a one-month delay in receiving
results from those hotel properties. Upon conversion to a REIT, operations are
required to be reported on a calendar year basis in accordance with Federal
income tax regulations. As a result, the Company recorded one additional
period of operations in fiscal year 1998 for these properties. The effect on
revenues and net income was to increase revenues by $44 million and net income
by $6 million and diluted earnings per unit by $0.02 in 1998.
 
   As a result of the previously discussed transaction with Crestline,
effective January 1, 2001, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company replaced
Crestline as lessee with respect to 116 full-service properties. Beginning in
2001, the Company's consolidated results of operations will represent
property-level revenues and expenses rather than rental income from lessees
with respect to those 116 properties and, therefore, will not be comparable to
2000 and 1999 results.

 Earnings (Loss) Per Unit
 
   Basic earnings per unit is computed by dividing net income less
distributions on preferred limited partner interests by the weighted average
number of units outstanding. Diluted earnings per unit is computed by dividing
net income less distributions on preferred limited partner interests as
adjusted for potentially dilutive securities, by the weighted average number
of units outstanding plus other potentially dilutive securities. Dilutive
securities may include units distributed to Host REIT for Host REIT common
shares granted under comprehensive stock plans and the Convertible Preferred
Securities. Dilutive securities also include those common and preferred OP
Units issuable or outstanding that are held by minority partners which are
assumed to be converted. Diluted earnings per unit was not adjusted for the
impact of the Convertible Preferred Securities for 2000 and 1999 as they were
anti-dilutive. In December 1998, the Company declared the Special Dividend
(see Note 3) and, in February 1999, Host REIT distributed 11.5 million shares
to existing shareholders in conjunction with the Special Dividend. The
weighted average number of units outstanding and the basic and diluted
earnings per unit computations have been restated to reflect these shares as
outstanding for all periods presented.
 
   In February 1999, the Company distributed 8.5 million units to Host REIT
for 8.5 million shares of Host REIT common stock issued in exchange for 8.5
million OP Units issued to certain limited partners in connection with the
Partnership Mergers (see Note 13) which are deemed outstanding at December 31,
1998.
 
   A reconciliation of the number of units utilized for the calculation of
diluted earnings per unit follows:

 International Operations
 
   The consolidated statements of operations include the following amounts
related to non-U.S. subsidiaries and affiliates: revenues of $26 million, $24
million, and $121 million, and income before income taxes of $6 million, $8
million and $7 million in 2000, 1999 and 1998, respectively.

            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued)
 
 
 Minority Interest
 
   Minority interest consists of limited partnership interests in consolidated
investments of $139 million and $136 million as of December 31, 2000 and 1999,
respectively.
 
 Property and Equipment
 
   Property and equipment is recorded at cost. For newly developed properties,
cost includes interest, ground rent and real estate taxes incurred during
development and construction. Replacements and improvements are capitalized.
 
   Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated
useful lives of the assets, generally 40 years for buildings and three to ten
years for furniture and equipment. Leasehold improvements are amortized over
the shorter of the lease term or the useful lives of the related assets.
 
   Gains on sales of properties are recognized at the time of sale or deferred
to the extent required by accounting principles generally accepted in the
United States. Deferred gains are recognized as income in subsequent periods
as conditions requiring deferral are satisfied or expire without further cost
to the Company.
 
   In cases where management is holding for sale particular hotel properties,
the Company assesses impairment based on whether the estimated sales price
less costs of disposal of each individual property to be sold is less than the
net book value. A property is considered to be held for sale when the Company
has made the decision to dispose of the property. Otherwise, the Company
assesses impairment of its real estate properties based on whether it is
probable that undiscounted future cash flows from each individual property
will be less than its net book value. If a property is impaired, its basis is
adjusted to its fair market value.
 
 Deferred Charges
 
   Financing costs related to long-term debt are deferred and amortized over
the remaining life of the debt.
 
 Cash, Cash Equivalents and Short-term Marketable Securities
 
   The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of 90
days or less at the date of purchase to be cash equivalents. Cash and cash
equivalents includes approximately $0 and $5 million at December 31, 2000 and
1999, respectively, of cash related to certain consolidated partnerships, the
use of which is restricted generally for partnership purposes to the extent it
is not distributed to the partners. Short-term marketable securities include
investments with a maturity of 91 days to one year at the date of purchase.
The Company's short-term marketable securities represent investments in U.S.
government agency notes and high quality commercial paper. The short-term
marketable securities are categorized as available for sale and, as a result,
are stated at fair market value. Unrealized holding gains and losses are
included as a separate component of partners' capital until realized.
 
 Concentrations of Credit Risk
 
   Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to significant
concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash, cash equivalents
and short-term marketable securities. The Company maintains cash and cash
equivalents and short-term marketable securities with various high credit-
quality financial institutions. The Company performs periodic evaluations of
the relative credit standing of these financial institutions and limits the
amount of credit exposure with any one institution.

            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued)
 
 
   In addition, on January 1, 1999, subsidiaries of Crestline became the
lessees of virtually all the hotels and, as such, their rent payments were the
primary source of the Company's revenues during 2000 and 1999. For a more
detailed discussion of Crestline's guarantee as lessee, see Note 10. The full-
service hotel leases were grouped into four lease pools. Crestline, as lessee
during 1999 and 2000, provided a guarantee limited to the greater of 10% of
the aggregate rent payable for the preceding year or 10% of the aggregate rent
payable under all leases in the respective pool. Additionally, Crestline's
obligation as lessee under each lease agreement was guaranteed by all other
lessees in the respective lease pool. As a result, the Company believed that
the operating results of each full-service lease pool for fiscal years 2000
and 1999 might have been material to the Company's consolidated financial
statements for those years. The separate consolidated financial statements of
each full-service lease pool as of and for the years ended December 31, 2000
and 1999 are included in this filing.
 
   As a result of the acquisition of the Crestline Lessee Entities during
January 2001 (see Note 2), the third party credit concentration with Crestline
ceased to exist. Effective January 1, 2001 the Company leases substantially
all of the hotels to a wholly-owned TRS.
 
 Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements
 
   The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make
estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and
liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of
the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses
during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
 REIT Conversion Expenses
 
   The Company incurred certain costs related to the REIT Conversion. These
costs consist of professional fees, printing and filing costs, consent fees
and certain other related fees and are classified as REIT conversion expenses
on the consolidated statement of operations. The Company recognized REIT
conversion expense of $64 million in 1998.
 
 Loss on Litigation Settlement
 
   In connection with the settlement of litigation involving seven limited
partnerships in which the Company or its subsidiaries serve as general
partner, the Company recorded a non-recurring charge of $40 million during the
fourth quarter of 1999. The loss is classified as the loss on litigation
settlement on the consolidated statement of operations.
 
 Interest Rate Swap Agreements
 
   In the past, the Company entered into a limited number of interest rate
swap agreements for non-trading purposes. The Company used such agreements to
fix certain of its variable rate debt to a fixed rate basis. The interest rate
differential to be paid or received on interest rate swap agreements was
recognized as an adjustment to interest expense. The Company terminated its
interest rate swap agreements in July 1999.

</TABLE>

 
 Application of New Accounting Standards
 
   On December 3, 1999 the Securities and Exchange Commission staff issued
Staff Accounting Bulletin (SAB) No. 101, which codified the staff's position
on revenue recognition. The Company retroactively changed its method of
accounting for contingent rental revenues to conform to SAB No. 101. As a
result, base rent is recognized as it is earned according to the applicable
lease provisions. Percentage rent is recorded as deferred revenue on the
balance sheet until the applicable hotel revenues exceed the threshold
amounts. The Company adopted SAB No. 101 with retroactive effect beginning
January 1, 1999.
 
   In June 1998, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued SFAS No. 133,
"Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities." The Statement
establishes accounting and reporting standards requiring that derivative
instruments (including certain derivative instruments embedded in other
contracts) be recorded in the balance sheet as either an asset or liability
measured at its fair value. The statement is effective for fiscal years
beginning after June 15, 2000. The Company has determined that there will be
no impact from the implementation of SFAS No. 133.
 
2. Lease Repurchase
 
   On November 13, 2000, the Company announced the execution of a definitive
agreement with Crestline for the termination of their lease arrangements
through the purchase of the entities ("Crestline Lessee Entities") owning the
leasehold interests with respect to 116 full-service hotel properties owned by
the Company for $207 million in cash, including $6 million of legal and
professional fees and transfer taxes. In connection therewith, during the
fourth quarter of 2000 the Company recorded a non-recurring, pre-tax loss of
$207 million net of a tax benefit of $82 million which the Company recognized
as a deferred tax asset because, for income tax purposes, the acquisition is
recognized as an asset that will be amortized over the next six years.
 
   The transaction was consummated effective January 1, 2001. Under the terms
of the transaction, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, which will elect
to be treated as a TRS for federal income tax purposes, acquired the Crestline
Lessee Entities. As a result of the acquisition, the Company's consolidated
results of operations beginning January 1, 2001 will represent property-level
revenues and expenses rather than rental income from lessees with respect to
those 116 full-service properties.
 
3. Distribution and Special Dividend
 
   In December 1998, the Company distributed to its shareholders through a
taxable distribution the outstanding shares of common stock of Crestline (the
"Distribution"), formerly a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, which, as
of the date of the Distribution, owned and operated the Company's senior
living communities, owned certain other assets and held leasehold interests in
substantially all of the Company's hotels. The Distribution provided Company
shareholders with one share of Crestline common stock for every ten shares of
Company common stock held by such shareholders on the record date of December
28, 1998. As a result of

            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued)
 
the Distribution, the Company's consolidated financial statements have been
restated to present the senior living communities' business results of
operations and cash flows as discontinued operations. Revenues for the
Company's discontinued operations totaled $241 million in 1998. The provision
for loss on disposal includes organizational and formation costs related to
Crestline.
 
   For purposes of governing certain of the ongoing relationships between the
Company and Crestline after the Distribution and to provide for an orderly
transition, the Company and Crestline entered into various agreements,
including a Distribution Agreement, an Employee Benefits Allocation Agreement
and a Tax Sharing Agreement. Effective as of December 29, 1998, these
agreements provide, among other things, for the division between the Company
and Crestline of certain assets and liabilities.
 
   On December 18, 1998, the Board of Directors declared a special dividend
which entitled shareholders of record on December 28, 1998 to elect to receive
either $1.00 in cash or .087 of a share of common stock of the Company for
each outstanding share of the Company's common stock owned by such shareholder
on the record date (the "Special Dividend"). Cash totaling $73 million and
11.5 million shares of common stock that were elected in the Special Dividend
were paid and/or issued in 1999.

                     HOST MARRIOTT, L.P. AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued)
 
 
   On May 16, 2000, the Company acquired for $40 million in cash a non-
controlling interest in the JWDC Limited Partnership, which owns the JW
Marriott Hotel, a 772-room hotel located on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington,
DC. The Company previously held a 17% limited partner interest in the venture
through a non-controlled subsidiary.
 
   In connection with the REIT Conversion, Rockledge Hotel Properties, Inc.
("Rockledge") and Fernwood Hotel Assets, Inc. (together, the "Non-Controlled
Subsidiaries") were formed to own various assets of approximately $264 million
contributed by the Company to the Operating Partnership, the direct ownership
of which by the Company or Host REIT could jeopardize Host REIT's status as a
REIT. These assets primarily consist of partnership or other interests in
hotels which are not leased and certain furniture, fixtures and equipment
("FF&E") used in the hotels. In exchange for the contribution of these assets
to the Non-Controlled Subsidiaries, the Operating Partnership received only
non-voting common stock of the Non-Controlled Subsidiaries, representing 95%
of the total economic interests therein. The Host Marriott Statutory
Employee/Charitable Trust, the beneficiaries of which are certain employees of
the Company and the J.W. Marriott Foundation concurrently acquired all of the
voting common stock representing the remaining 5% of the total economic
interest. The Non-Controlled Subsidiaries own three full-service hotels, an
interest in a joint venture discussed below, and interests in partnerships
that own an additional full-service hotel and 88 limited-service hotels.
During February 2001, the Board of Directors of Host REIT approved the
acquisition, through a TRS, of all of the voting common stock representing the
remaining 5% of the total economic interest of the Non-Controlled Subsidiaries
from the Host Marriott Statutory Employee/Charitable Trust. The transaction is
permitted as a result of the REIT Modernization Act.
 
   In addition, during December 2000, a newly created joint venture, ("Joint
Venture") formed by Rockledge and Marriott International acquired the
partnership interests in two partnerships that collectively own 120 limited
service hotels for approximately $372 million plus interest and legal fees, of
which Rockledge paid approximately $79 million. Previously, both partnerships
were operated by Rockledge, as sole general partner. The Joint Venture
acquired the two partnerships by acquiring partnership units pursuant to a
tender offer for such units followed by a merger of the two partnerships with
and into subsidiaries of the Joint Venture. The Joint Venture financed the
acquisition with mezzanine indebtedness borrowed from Marriott International
and with cash and other assets contributed by Rockledge and Marriott
International, including Rockledge's existing general partner and limited
partner interests in the partnerships. Rockledge, through its subsidiaries,
owns a 50% non-controlling interest in the Joint Venture as of December 31,
2000.
 
   In connection with the REIT Conversion, the Company completed the
Partnership Mergers and, as a result, investments in affiliates in prior years
include earnings and assets, which are now consolidated. (See Note 13 for
discussion.)
 
   Receivables from affiliates are reported net of reserves of $7 million at
December 31, 2000 and 1999. Repayments were $3 million in 2000, $2 million in
1999 and $14 million in 1998.

   Public Debt. In October 2000, the Company issued $250 million of 9 1/4%
Series F senior notes due in 2007, under the same indenture and with the same
covenants as the New Senior Notes (described below). The net proceeds to the
Company were approximately $245 million, after commissions and expenses of
approximately $5 million. The proceeds were used for the $26 million repayment
of the outstanding balance on the revolver portion of the bank credit
facility, settlement of certain litigation, and to partially fund the
acquisition of the Crestline Lessee Entities. The notes will be exchanged in
the first quarter of 2001 for Series G senior notes on a one-for-one basis,
which are freely transferable by the holders.
 
   In February 1999, the Company issued $300 million of 8 3/8% Series D notes
due in 2006 under the same indenture and with the same covenants as the New
Senior Notes (described below). The debt was used to refinance, or purchase,
approximately $299 million of debt acquired in the Partnership Mergers,
including a $40 million variable rate mortgage and an associated swap
agreement, which was terminated by incurring a termination fee of $1 million.
The notes were exchanged in August 1999 for Series E Senior notes on a one-
for-one basis, which are freely transferable by the holders.
 
   In December 1998, the Operating Partnership issued $500 million of 8.45%
Series C notes due in 2008 under the same indenture and with the same
covenants as the New Senior Notes (described below).
 
   On August 5, 1998, the Company issued an aggregate of $1.7 billion in new
senior notes (the "New Senior Notes"). The New Senior Notes were issued in two
series, $500 million of 7 7/8% Series A notes due in 2005 and $1.2 billion of
7 7/8% Series B notes due in 2008. The indenture under which the new Senior
Notes were issued contains covenants restricting the ability of the Company
and certain of its subsidiaries to incur indebtedness, grant liens on their
assets, acquire or sell assets or make investments in other entities, and make

certain distributions to equity holders of the Company and the Operating
Partnership. The Company utilized the proceeds from the New Senior Notes to
purchase substantially all of its (i) $600 million in 9 1/2% senior notes due
2005; (ii) $350 million in 9% senior notes due 2007; and (iii) $600 million in
8 7/8% senior notes due 2007 (collectively, the "Old Senior Notes").
Approximately $13 million of the Old Senior Notes remain outstanding. In
connection with the purchase of substantially all of the Old Senior Notes, the
Company recorded a charge of approximately $148 million in 1998 (net of income
tax benefit of $80 million) as an extraordinary item representing the amount
paid for bond premiums and consent fees, as well as the write-off of deferred
financing fees on the Old Senior Notes.
 
   Concurrently with each offer to purchase, we successfully solicited
consents (the "1998 Consent Solicitations") from registered holders of the Old
Senior Notes to certain amendments to eliminate or modify substantially all of
the restrictive covenants and certain other provisions contained in the
indentures pursuant to which the Old Senior Notes were issued.
 
   Bank Credit Facility. In August 1998, the Company entered into a $1.25
billion credit facility (the "Bank Credit Facility") with a group of
commercial banks. The Bank Credit Facility had an initial three-year term with
two one-year extension options. At origination, the facility consisted of a
$350 million term loan and a $900 million revolver.
 
   During June 2000, the Company modified its bank credit facility. As
modified, the total facility has been permanently reduced to $775 million,
consisting of a $150 million term loan and a $625 million revolver. In
addition, the original term was extended for two additional years, through
August 2003. Borrowings under the Bank Credit Facility bear interest currently
at the Eurodollar rate plus 2.25% at December 31, 2000. The interest rate and
commitment fee on the unused portion of the Bank Credit Facility fluctuate
based on certain financial ratios. As of December 31, 2000, $150 million was
outstanding under the Bank Credit Facility, and the available capacity under
the revolver portion was $625 million. During the first quarter of 2001, the
Company borrowed an additional $90 million under the revolver portion of the
Bank Credit Facility to partially fund the acquisition of the Crestline Lessee
Entities and for general corporate purposes.
 
   The Bank Credit Facility contains covenants restricting the ability of the
Company and certain of its subsidiaries to incur indebtedness, grant liens on
their assets, acquire or sell assets or make investments in other entities,
and make certain distributions to equity holders of the Company and the
Operating Partnership. The Bank Credit Facility also contains certain
financial covenants relating to, among other things, maintaining certain
levels of tangible net worth and certain ratios of EBITDA to interest and
fixed charges, total debt to EBITDA, unencumbered assets to unsecured debt,
and secured debt to total debt. As of December 31, 2000, the Company was in
compliance with all covenants.
 
   In connection with the renegotiation of the Bank Credit Facility, the
Company recognized an extraordinary loss of approximately $3 million during
the second quarter of 2000, representing the write-off of deferred financing
costs and certain fees paid to the lender.
 
   During 1999, the Company repaid $225 million of the outstanding balance on
the $350 million term loan portion of the Bank Credit Facility, permanently
reducing the term loan portion to $125 million. In connection with these
prepayments, an extraordinary loss of $2 million representing the write-off of
deferred financing costs was recognized.
 
   Mortgage Debt. In February 2000, the Company refinanced the $80 million
mortgage on Marriott's Harbor Beach Resort property in Fort Lauderdale,
Florida. The new mortgage is for $84 million, at a rate of 8.58%, and matures
in March 2007.

   In August 1999, the Company made a prepayment of $19 million to pay down in
full the mezzanine mortgage on the Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa. In
September 1999, the Company made a prepayment of $45 million to pay down in
full the mortgage note on the Philadelphia Four Seasons Hotel.
 
   In July 1999, the Company entered into a financing agreement pursuant to
which it borrowed $665 million due 2009 at a fixed rate of 7.47% with eight
hotels serving as collateral. The proceeds from this financing were used to
refinance existing mortgage indebtedness maturing at various times through
2000, including approximately $590 million of outstanding variable rate
mortgage debt.
 
   In June 1999, the Company refinanced the debt on the San Diego Marriott
Hotel and Marina. The mortgage is $195 million with a term of 10 years at a
rate of 8.45%. In addition, the Company entered into a mortgage for the
Philadelphia Marriott expansion in July 1999 for $23 million at an interest
rate of approximately 8.6%, maturing in 2009.
 
   In April 1999, a subsidiary of the Company completed the refinancing of the
$245 million mortgage on the New York Marriott Marquis, maturing June 2000. In
connection with the refinancing, the Company renegotiated the management
agreement and recognized an extraordinary gain of $14 million on the
forgiveness of accrued incentive management fees by the manager. This mortgage
was subsequently refinanced as part of the $665 million financing agreement
discussed above.
 
   Interest Rate SWAP Agreements. During 1999, the Company terminated its
outstanding interest rate SWAP agreements recognizing an extraordinary gain of
approximately $8 million. The Company was party to an interest rate swap
agreement with a financial institution with an aggregate notional amount of
$100 million which expired in December 1998. The Company realized a net
reduction of interest expense of $338,000 in 1999 related to interest rate
swap agreements.

7. Convertible Debt Obligation to Host Marriott Corporation
 
   The obligation for the $492 million and $514 million of 6 3/4% Convertible
Subordinated Debentures (the "Debentures") as of December 31, 2000 and 1999,
respectively, has been included in these financial statements as debt of the
Company because upon the REIT Conversion the Operating Partnership assumed
primary liability for repayment of the Debentures of Host Marriott underlying
the Convertible Preferred Securities (defined below) of the Host Marriott
Financial Trust (the "Issuer"), a wholly-owned subsidiary trust of Host
Marriott. The common securities of Host Marriott Financial Trust were not
contributed to the Operating Partnership and therefore Host Marriott Financial
Trust is not consolidated by the Operating Partnership. Upon conversion by a
Convertible Preferred Securities holder, Host Marriott will issue shares of
its common stock which will be delivered to such holder. Upon the issuance of
such shares by Host Marriott, the Operating Partnership will issue to Host
Marriott the number of OP Units equal to the number of shares of the Host
Marriott common stock issued in exchange for the Debentures.
 
   In December 1996, Host Marriott Financial Trust issued 11 million shares of
6 3/4% convertible quarterly income preferred securities (the "Convertible
Preferred Securities"), with a liquidation preference of $50 per share (for a
total liquidation amount of $550 million). The Convertible Preferred
Securities represent an undivided beneficial interest in the assets of the
Issuer. The payment of distributions out of moneys held by the Issuer and
payments on liquidation of the Issuer or the redemption of the Convertible
Preferred Securities are guaranteed by the Company to the extent the Issuer
has funds available therefor. This guarantee, when taken together with the
Company's obligations under the indenture pursuant to which the Debentures
(defined below) were issued, the Debentures, the Company's obligations under
the Trust Agreement and its obligations under the indenture to pay costs,
expenses, debts and liabilities of the Issuer (other than with respect to the
Convertible Preferred Securities) provides a full and unconditional guarantee
of amounts due on the Convertible Preferred Securities. Proceeds from the
issuance of the Convertible Preferred Securities were invested in 6 3/4%
Convertible Subordinated Debentures (the "Debentures") due December 2, 2026
issued by the Company. The Issuer exists solely to issue the Convertible
Preferred Securities and its own common securities (the "Common Securities")
and invest the proceeds therefrom in the Debentures. The note receivable from
the Operating Partnership is the Issuer's sole asset.
 
   Each of the Convertible Preferred Securities and the related debentures are
convertible at the option of the holder into shares of Host Marriott
Corporation common stock at the rate of 3.2537 shares per Convertible
Preferred Security (equivalent to a conversion price of $15.367 per share of
Host Marriott Corporation common stock). The Issuer will only convert
Debentures pursuant to a notice of conversion by a holder of Convertible
Preferred Securities. During 2000, 325 shares were converted into common
stock. During 1999 and 1998, no shares were converted into common stock. The
conversion ratio and price were adjusted to reflect the impact of the
Distribution and the Special Dividend.
 
   Holders of the Convertible Preferred Securities are entitled to receive
preferential cumulative cash distributions at an annual rate of 6 3/4%
accruing from the original issue date, commencing March 1, 1997, and payable
quarterly in arrears thereafter. The distribution rate and the distribution
and other payment dates for the Convertible Preferred Securities will
correspond to the interest rate and interest and other payment dates on the
Debentures. The Company may defer interest payments on the Debentures for a
period not to exceed 20 consecutive quarters. If interest payments on the
Debentures are deferred, so too are payments on the Convertible Preferred
Securities. Under this circumstance, the Company will not be permitted to
declare or pay any cash distributions with respect to its capital stock or
debt securities that rank pari passu with or junior to the Debentures.
 
   Subject to certain restrictions, the Convertible Preferred Securities are
redeemable at the Issuer's option upon any redemption by the Company of the
Debentures after December 2, 1999. Upon repayment at maturity

or as a result of the acceleration of the Debentures upon the occurrence of a
default, the Debentures shall be subject to mandatory redemption, from which
the proceeds will be applied to redeem Convertible Preferred Securities and
Common Securities, together with accrued and unpaid distributions.
 
   The Company repurchased 0.4 million and 1.1 million shares of Convertible
Preferred Securities in 2000 and 1999, respectively, as part of the share
repurchase program described below in Note 8, and in connection with those
repurchases, the Operating Partnership exchanged 1.4 million and 3.4 million
OP Units to Host REIT in exchange for the extinguishment of $22 million and
$53 million of Debentures in 2000 and 1999, respectively.
 
8. Equity and Partners' Capital
 
   284.9 million and 287.5 million common OP units were outstanding, of which
Host REIT held 221.3 million and 223.5 million, as of December 31, 2000 and
1999, respectively. 8.16 million preferred limited partner units were
outstanding as of December 31, 2000 and 1999.
 
   Quarterly distributions of $0.21, $0.21, and $0.23 per common unit were
paid on April 14, July 14, and October 16, 2000, respectively. In addition, a
fourth quarter distribution of $0.26 per common unit was declared on December
18, 2000 and paid on January 12, 2001. A quarterly distribution of $0.21 per
common unit was paid on April 14, July 14, and October 15 of 1999. A fourth
quarter distribution of $0.21 per common unit was declared on December 20,
1999 and paid on January 17, 2000.
 
   During 1999, approximately 586,000 Class TS cumulative redeemable preferred
operating partnership units and approximately 26,000 Class AM cumulative
redeemable preferred operating partnership units (together the "Preferred OP
Units") were issued in connection with the acquisition of minority interests
in two hotels. The Preferred OP Units are convertible into OP Units on a one-
for-one basis, subject to adjustment in specified events, at any time
beginning one year after acquisition, and after conversion to OP Units are
redeemable for cash or at Host REIT's option, Host REIT common shares. The
Company has the right to convert the Preferred OP Units to OP Units two years
from the date of issuance. Preferred OP Unitholders are entitled to receive a
preferential cash distribution of $0.21 per quarter. During 2000, all of the
Class TS Preferred OP Units and approximately 7,000 of the Class AM Preferred
OP Units were converted by the holders to common OP Units. During 2000,
593,000 Preferred OP Units were converted by their respective holders to
common OP Units, and only 19,000 Preferred OP Units were outstanding as of
December 31, 2000.
 
   In September 1999, the Board of Directors of Host Marriott Corporation
approved the repurchase, from time to time on the open market and/or in
privately negotiated transactions, of up to 22 million of the outstanding
shares of the common stock, operating partnership units, or a corresponding
amount of the Convertible Preferred Securities, which are convertible into a
like number of shares of common stock, based on the appropriate conversion
ratio. Such repurchases will be made at management's discretion, subject to
market conditions, and may be suspended at any time at the Company's
discretion. For the year ended December 31, 2000, the Company repurchased 4.9
million common shares, 0.4 million shares of the Convertible Preferred
Securities and 0.3 million OP Units for a total investment of $62 million.
Since inception of the program, the Company has spent, in the aggregate,
approximately $150 million to retire approximately 16.2 million equivalent
units on a fully diluted basis.
 
   In August 1999, Host REIT sold 4.16 million shares of 10% Class A preferred
stock, and in November 1999, Host REIT sold 4.0 million shares of 10% Class B
preferred stock. The Operating Partnership, in turn, issued equivalent
securities, the Class A Preferred Units and Class B Preferred Units ("Class A
and B Preferred Units"), to Host REIT. Holders of the preferred stock are
entitled to receive cumulative cash dividends at a rate of 10% per annum of
the $25.00 per share liquidation preference, payable quarterly in arrears
commencing

October 15, 1999 and January 15, 2000 for the Class A and Class B preferred
stock, respectively. After August 3, 2004 and April 29, 2005, Host REIT has
the option to redeem the Class A Preferred Stock and Class B Preferred Stock,
respectively, for $25.00 per share, plus accrued and unpaid dividends to the
date of redemption. The Class A and B Preferred Units rank senior to the OP
Units and the Preferred OP Units, and on a parity with each other. The
preferred unitholders generally have no voting rights. Accrued distributions
at December 31, 2000 were $5 million.
 
   The Contribution and related transactions resulted in the exchange of 217.1
million OP Units for substantially all of the assets and liabilities of Host
Marriott Corporation.
 
   In conjunction with the Merger, the Blackstone Acquisition and the
Partnership Mergers (Note 13), the Company issued approximately 73.5 million
OP Units which are convertible into cash or shares of Host Marriott common
stock, at Host Marriott's option. Approximately 63.6 million and 64.0 million
of the OP Units were outstanding as of December 31, 2000 and 1999,
respectively. On February 7, 2001, certain limited partners converted 12.5
million OP Units to Host REIT common shares and immediately sold them to an
underwriter for sale on the open market. As a result, Host REIT now owns
approximately 82% of the outstanding OP Units. The Company received no
proceeds as a result of this transaction.
 
   Host Marriott Corporation issued 11.5 million shares of common stock as
part of the Special Dividend and 8.5 million shares of common stock in
exchange for 8.5 million OP Units issued to certain limited partners in
connection with the Partnership Mergers (Note 13). Also, as part of the REIT
Conversion, Host Marriott Corporation changed its par value from $1 to $0.01
per share. The change in par value did not affect the number of shares
outstanding.
 
9. Income Taxes
 
   The Operating Partnership is not a tax paying entity. However, the
Operating Partnership under the Operating Partnership Agreement is required to
reimburse Host REIT for any tax payments Host REIT is required to make.
Accordingly, the tax information included herein represents disclosures
regarding Host REIT. As a result of the requirement of the Company to
reimburse Host REIT for these liabilities, such liabilities and related
disclosures are included in the Company's financial statements.
 
   In December 1998, Host REIT restructured itself to enable Host REIT to
qualify for treatment as a REIT, pursuant to the US Internal Revenue Code of
1986, as amended, effective January 1, 1999. In general, a corporation that
elects REIT status and meets certain distribution requirements of its taxable
income to its shareholders as prescribed by applicable tax laws and complies
with certain other requirements (relating primarily to the nature of its
assets and the sources of its revenues) is not subject to Federal income
taxation to the extent it distributes its taxable income. In 2000 and 1999,
Host REIT distributed 100% if its estimated taxable income which amounted to
$.91 and $.84, respectively, per outstanding common share. The entire 2000
distribution was taxable as an ordinary dividend and of the total 1999
distribution, $.83 per share was taxable as ordinary income with the remaining
$.01 per share taxable as a capital gain. Management believes that Host REIT
was organized to qualify as a REIT at the beginning of January 1, 1999 and
intends for it to qualify in subsequent years (including distribution of at
least 95% of its REIT taxable income to shareholders each year, 90% beginning
January 1, 2001). Management expects that Host REIT will pay taxes on "built-
in gains" on only certain of its assets. Based on these considerations,
management does not believe that Host REIT will be liable for income taxes at
the federal level or in most of the states in which it operates in future
years.
 
   In order to qualify as a REIT for federal income tax purposes, among other
things, Host REIT was required to distribute all of its accumulated earnings
and profits ("E&P") to its stockholders in one or more taxable
 
                                      71

<PAGE>
 
                     HOST MARRIOTT, L.P. AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued)
 
dividends prior to December 31, 1999. To accomplish the requisite
distributions of accumulated E&P, Host Marriott made distributions consisting
of approximately 20.4 million shares of Crestline valued at $297 million, $73
million in cash, and approximately 11.5 million shares of Host Marriott stock
valued at $138 million. Management believes it distributed all required E&P
prior to December 31, 1999. Host REIT's final calculation of E&P and the
distribution thereof is subject to review by the Internal Revenue Service.
 
   Where required, deferred income taxes are accounted for using the asset and
liability method. Under this method, deferred income taxes are recognized for
temporary differences between the financial reporting bases of assets and
liabilities and their respective tax bases and for operating loss and tax
credit carryforwards based on enacted tax rates expected to be in effect when
such amounts are realized or settled. However, deferred tax assets are
recognized only to the extent that it is more likely than not that they will
be realized based on consideration of available evidence, including tax
planning strategies and other factors. As permitted by the REIT Modernization
Act, the Company purchased the Crestline Lessee Entities with respect to 116
of its full-service hotels effective January 1, 2001. On December 31, 2000,
the Company recorded a non-recurring, pretax loss provision of $207 million
net of a tax benefit of $82 million which the Company has recognized as a
deferred tax asset which the Company expects to realize over the remaining
initial lease term.
 
   Total deferred tax assets and liabilities at December 31, 2000 and December
31, 1999 were as follows:

   As of February 28, 2001, Host REIT had settled with the Internal Revenue
Service substantially all outstanding issues for tax years through 1998. Host
REIT expects to resolve any remaining issues with no material impact on the
consolidated financial statements. Host REIT made net payments to the IRS of
approximately $14 million in 1999 and $27 million in 1998 related to these
settlements, and an additional $24 million was paid during the first quarter
of 2001. As a result of settling these outstanding contingencies, Host REIT
reversed $32 million and $26 million of recorded liabilities in 2000 and 1999,
respectively, as a benefit to the tax provision.
 
   A reconciliation of the statutory Federal tax rate to Host REIT's effective
income tax rate follows (excluding the impact of the change in tax status and

10. Leases
 
   Hotel Leases. Due to federal income tax law restrictions on a REIT's
ability to derive revenues directly from the operation of a hotel, the Company
leased its hotels (the "Leases") to one or more third party lessees (the
"Lessees"), primarily subsidiaries of Crestline, effective January 1, 1999.
The REIT Modernization Act amended the tax laws to permit REITs, effective
January 1, 2001, to lease hotels to a subsidiary that qualifies as a TRS.
Accordingly, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Host LP, which has elected to be
treated as a TRS for federal income tax purposes, acquired the Crestline
Lessee Entities owning the leasehold interests with respect to 116 of the
Company's full-service hotels during January 2001. As a result, effective
January 1, 2001, the TRS replaced Crestline as lessee under the applicable
leases.
 
   There generally is a separate lessee for each hotel or group of hotels that
is owned by a separate subsidiary of the Company. The operating agreements for
such Lessees provide that the Lessee has full control over the management of
the business of the Lessee, subject to blocking rights by Marriott
International, for hotel properties where it is the manager, over certain
decisions by virtue of its non-economic, limited voting interest in the lessee
subsidiaries. Each full-service hotel Lease has a fixed term generally ranging
from seven to ten years, subject to earlier termination upon the occurrence of
certain contingencies as defined in the Leases. Each Lease requires the Lessee
to pay 1) minimum rent in a fixed dollar amount per annum plus 2) to the
extent it exceeds minimum rent, percentage rent based upon specified
percentages of aggregate sales from the applicable hotel, including room
sales, food and beverage sales, and other income in excess of specified
thresholds. The amount of minimum rent and the percentage rent thresholds will
be adjusted each year based upon the average

of the increases in the Consumer Price Index and the Employment Cost Index
during the previous 10 months, as well as for certain capital expenditures and
casualty occurrences.
 
   If the Company anticipates that the average tax basis of the Company's FF&E
and other personal property that are leased by any individual lessor entity
will exceed 15% of the aggregate average tax basis of the fixed assets in that
entity, then the Lessee would be obligated either to acquire such excess FF&E
from the Company or to cause a third party to purchase such FF&E. The Lessee
has agreed to give a right of first opportunity to a Non-Controlled Subsidiary
to acquire the excess FF&E and to lease the excess FF&E to the Lessee.
 
   Each Lessee is responsible for paying all of the expenses of operating the
applicable hotel(s), including all personnel costs, utility costs and general
repair and maintenance of the hotel(s). The Lessee also is responsible for all
fees payable to the applicable manager, including base and incentive
management fees, chain services payments and franchise or system fees, with
respect to periods covered by the term of the Lease. Host Marriott also
remains liable under each management agreement.
 
   The Company is responsible for paying real estate taxes, personal property
taxes (to the extent the Company owns the personal property), casualty
insurance on the structures, ground lease rent payments, required expenditures
for FF&E (including maintaining the FF&E reserve, to the extent such is
required by the applicable management agreement) and other capital
expenditures.
 
   Crestline Guarantees. During 1999 and 2000, Crestline and certain of its
subsidiaries, as lessees under virtually all of the hotel leases, entered into
limited guarantees of the Lease obligations of each Lessee. The full-service
hotel leases are grouped into four lease pools (determined on the basis of the
term of the particular Lease with all leases having generally the same lease
term placed in the same "pool"). For each of the four identified pools, the
cumulative limit of Crestline's guaranty obligation is the greater of 10% of
the aggregate rent payable for the immediately preceding fiscal year under all
Leases in the pool or 10% of the aggregate rent payable under all Leases in
the pool. For each pool, the subsidiary of Crestline that is the parent of the
Lessees in the pool (a "Pool Parent") also is a party to the guaranty of the
Lease obligations for that pool. Effective January 1, 2001, a wholly-owned TRS
of the Company replaced Crestline as lessee with respect to 116 of the
Company's full-service hotels. As a result, there no longer is a significant
third party credit concentration as of that date.
 
   The obligations of the Pool Parent under each guaranty is secured by all
funds received by the applicable Pool Parent from the hotels in the pool, and
the hotels in the pool are required to distribute their excess cash flow to
the Pool Parent for each accounting period, under certain conditions as
described by the guaranty.
 
   As a result of the limited guarantees of the lease obligations of the
Lessees, the Company believes that the operating results of each full-service
lease pool may be material to the Company's financial statements for the years
ended December 31, 2000 and 1999. Separate financial statements for the year
ended December 31, 2000 and 1999 for each of the four lease pools in which the
Company's hotels were organized are presented in Item 8 of this Annual Report
on Form 10-K. Financial information of certain pools related to the sublease
agreements for limited service properties are not presented, as the Company
believes they are not material to the Company's financial statements.
Financial information of Crestline may be found in its quarterly and annual
filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
 
   The Operating Partnership sold the existing working capital to the
applicable Lessee upon the commencement of the Lease at a price equal to the
fair market value of such assets. The purchase price is represented by a note
evidencing a loan that bears interest at a rate of 5.12%. Interest accrued on
the working capital loan is due simultaneously with each periodic rent
payment, and the amount of each payment of interest is credited against such
rent payment. The principal amount of the working capital loan is payable upon
 
                                      74

termination of the Lease. The Lessee can return the working capital in
satisfaction of the note. As of December 31, 2000 and 1999, the note
receivable from Crestline for working capital was $91 million and $90 million,
respectively. In connection with the acquisition of the Crestline Lessee
Entities, the working capital related to the 116 hotels, which was valued at
approximately $90 million, was acquired by the Company's TRS.
 
   In the event the Company enters into an agreement to sell or otherwise
transfer any full-service hotel free and clear of the applicable Lease, the
Lessor must pay the Lessee a termination fee equal to the lesser of (i) the
fair market value of the Lessee's leasehold interest in the remaining term of
the Lease using a discount rate of 12% or (ii) the allocated purchase price
for that particular lease, reduced by any amounts reflected as deductions for
federal income tax purposes. Alternatively, the Lessor will be entitled to (i)
substitute a comparable hotel or hotels for any hotel that is sold or (ii)
sell the hotel subject to the Lease and certain conditions without being
required to pay a termination fee.
 
   Hospitality Properties Trust Relationship. In a series of related
transactions in 1995 and 1996, the Company sold and leased back 53 of its
Courtyard properties and 18 of its Residence Inns to Hospitality Properties
Trust ("HPT"). These leases, which are accounted for as operating leases and
are included in the table below, have initial terms expiring through 2012 for
the Courtyard properties and 2010 for the Residence Inn properties, and are
renewable at the option of the Company. Minimum rent payments are $51 million
annually for the Courtyard properties and $17 million annually for the
Residence Inn properties, and additional rent based upon sales levels are
payable to the owner under the terms of the leases.
 
   In connection with the REIT Conversion, the Operating Partnership sublet
the HPT hotels (the "Subleases") to separate indirect sublessee subsidiaries
of Crestline ("Sublessee"), subject to the terms of the applicable HPT Lease.
The term of each Sublease expires simultaneously with the expiration of the
initial term of the HPT lease to which it relates and automatically renews for
the corresponding renewal term under the HPT lease, unless either the HPT
lessee (the "Sublessor") elects not to renew the HPT lease, or the Sublessee
elects not to renew the Sublease at the expiration of the initial term
provided, however, that neither party can elect to terminate fewer than all of
the Subleases in a particular pool of HPT hotels (one for Courtyard by
Marriott hotels and one for Residence Inn hotels). Rent under the Sublease
consists of the Minimum Rent payable under the HPT lease and an additional
percentage rent payable to the Sublessor. The percentage rent is sufficient to
cover the additional rent due under the HPT lease, with any excess being
retained by the Sublessor. The rent payable under the Subleases is guaranteed
by Crestline, up to a maximum amount of $30 million which amount is allocated
between the two pools of HPT hotels.

   Other Lease Information. A number of the Company's leased hotel properties
also include long-term ground leases for certain hotels, generally with
multiple renewal options. Certain leases contain provision for the payment of
contingent rentals based on a percentage of sales in excess of stipulated
amounts. Future minimum annual rental commitments for all non-cancelable
leases for which the Company is the lessee are as follows:

   Certain of the lease payments included in the table above relate to
facilities used in the Company's former restaurant business. Most leases
contain one or more renewal options, generally for five or 10-year periods.
Future rentals on leases have not been reduced by aggregate minimum sublease
rentals from restaurants and HPT subleases of $61 million and $789 million,
respectively, payable to the Company under non-cancellable subleases.
 
   In conjunction with the refinancing of the mortgage of the New York
Marriott Marquis in 1999, the Company also renegotiated the terms of the
ground lease, retroactive to 1998. The renegotiated ground lease provides for
the payment of a percentage of the hotel sales (3% in 1998, 4% in 1999 and 5%
thereafter) through 2017, which is to be used to amortize the then existing
deferred ground rent obligation of $116 million. The Company has the right to
purchase the land under certain circumstances. The balance of the deferred
ground rent obligation was $77 million and $86 million at December 31, 2000
and 1999, respectively, and is included in other liabilities on the
consolidated balance sheets.
 
   The Company remains contingently liable at December 31, 2000 on certain
leases relating to divested non-lodging properties. Such contingent
liabilities aggregated $68 million at December 31, 2000. However, management
considers the likelihood of any substantial funding related to these leases to
be remote.

11. Employee Stock Plans
 
   In connection with the REIT conversion, the Company assumed the employee
obligations of Host REIT. Upon the exercise of stock options in Host REIT
common stock, Host REIT will issue shares of its common stock in return for
the issuance of an equal number of OP Units of the Company. Accordingly, those
liabilities and related disclosures are included in the Company's consolidated
financial statements.
 
   At December 31, 2000, Host REIT maintained two stock-based compensation
plans, including the comprehensive stock plan (the "Comprehensive Plan"),
whereby Host REIT may award to participating employees (i) options to purchase
Host REIT's common stock, (ii) deferred shares of Host REIT's common stock and
(iii) restricted shares of Host REIT's common stock and the employee stock
purchase plan (the "Employee Stock Purchase Plan"). Total shares of common
stock reserved and available for issuance under the Comprehensive Plan at
December 31, 2000 was 13.1 million.
 
   Employee stock options may be granted to officers and key employees with an
exercise price not less than the fair market value of the common stock on the
date of grant. Non-qualified options generally expire up to 15 years after the
date of grant. Most options vest ratably over each of the first four years
following the date of the grant. In connection with the Marriott International
Distribution in 1993, Host Marriott issued an equivalent number of Marriott
International options and adjusted the exercise prices of its options then
outstanding based on the relative trading prices of shares of the common stock
of companies.
 
   In connection with the Host Marriott Services ("HM Services") spin-off in
1995, outstanding options held by current and former employees of the Company
were redenominated in both Company and HM Services stock and the exercise
prices of the options were adjusted based on the relative trading prices of
shares of the common stock of the two companies. Pursuant to the distribution
agreement between the Company and HM Services, the Company originally had the
right to receive up to 1.4 million shares of HM Services' common stock or an
equivalent cash value subsequent to exercise of the options held by certain
former and current employees of Marriott International. On August 27, 1999,
Autogrill Acquisition Co., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Autogrill SpA of
Italy, acquired Host Marriott Services Corporation. Since Host Marriott
Services is no longer publicly traded, all future payments to the Company will
be made in cash, as Host Marriott Services Corporation has indicated that the
receivable will not be settled in Autogrill SpA stock. As of December 31, 2000
and 1999, the receivable balance was approximately $8.8 million and $11.9
million, respectively, which is included in other assets in the accompanying
consolidated balance sheets.
 
   Effective December 29, 1998, the Company adjusted the number of outstanding
stock options and the related exercise prices to maintain the intrinsic value
of the options to account for the Special Dividend and the Distribution. The
vesting provisions and option period of the original grant was retained. No
compensation expense was recorded by the Company as a result of these
adjustments. Employee optionholders that remained with the Company received
options only in the Company's stock and those employee optionholders that
became Crestline employees received Crestline options in exchange for the
Company's options.
 
   The Company continues to account for expense under its plans according to
the provisions of Accounting Principle Board Opinion 25 and related
interpretations as permitted under SFAS No. 123. Consequently, no compensation
cost has been recognized for its fixed stock options under the Comprehensive
Plan and its Employee Stock Purchase Plan.
 
   For purposes of the following disclosures required by SFAS No. 123, the
fair value of each option granted has been estimated on the date of grant
using an option-pricing model with the following weighted average assumptions
used for grants in 2000 and 1999, respectively: risk-free interest rates of
5.1% and 6.4%, volatility of 32% and 32%, expected lives of 12 years and 12
years, and dividend yield of $.91 per share and $0.84 per
 
                                      77

share. The weighted average fair value per option granted during the year was
$1.06 in 2000 and $1.15 in 1999. Pro forma compensation cost for 2000, 1999
and 1998 would have reduced net income by approximately $811,000, $919,000 and
$524,000, respectively. Basic and diluted earnings per share on a pro forma
basis were not impacted by the pro forma compensation cost in 2000, 1999 and
1998.
 
   The effects of the implementation of SFAS No. 123 are not representative of
the effects on reported net income in future years because only the effects of
stock option awards granted in 1997 and subsequent years have been considered.
 
   A summary of the status of the Company's stock option plan for 2000, 1999
and 1998 follows:

   Deferred stock incentive plan shares granted to officers and key employees
after 1990 generally vest over 10 years in annual installments commencing one
year after the date of grant. Certain employees may elect to defer payments
until termination or retirement. The Company accrues compensation expense for
the fair market value of the shares on the date of grant, less estimated
forfeitures. In 2000, 1999 and 1998, 20,000, 11,000 and 12,000 shares were
granted, respectively, under this plan. The compensation cost that has been
charged against income for deferred stock was not material in 2000, 1999 and
1998. The weighted average fair value per share granted during each year was
$9.44 in 2000, $14.31 in 1999 and $19.21 in 1998.
 
   The Company from time to time awards restricted stock plan shares under the
Comprehensive Plan to officers and key executives to be distributed over the
next three to 10 years in annual installments based on

continued employment and the attainment of certain performance criteria. The
Company recognizes compensation expense over the restriction period equal to
the fair market value of the shares on the date of issuance adjusted for
forfeitures, and where appropriate, the level of attainment of performance
criteria and fluctuations in the fair market value of the Company's common
stock. In 2000, 1999 and 1998, 889,000, 3,203,000, and 2,900 shares of
additional restricted stock plan shares were granted to certain key employees
under these terms and conditions. Approximately 106,000 and 747,000 shares
were forfeited in 2000 and 1999, respectively. The Company recorded
compensation expense of $11 million, $7.7 million and $11 million in 2000,
1999 and 1998, respectively, related to these awards. The weighted average
grant date fair value per share granted during each year was $8.87 in 2000,
$12.83 in 1999 and $18.13 in 1998. Under these awards 3,612,000 shares were
outstanding at December 31, 2000.
 
   In 1998, 568,408 stock appreciation rights ("SARs") were issued under the
Comprehensive Plan to certain directors of the Company as a replacement for
previously issued options that were cancelled during the year. The conversion
to SARs was completed in order to comply with ownership limits applicable to
the Company upon conversion to a REIT. The SARs are fully vested and the grant
prices range from $1.20 to $5.13. In 2000, 1999 and 1998, the Company
recognized compensation (income) expense of $1.4 million, $(2.7) million and
$4.8 million, respectively, related to this grant. Additionally, in future
periods, the Company will recognize compensation expense for outstanding SARs
as a result of fluctuations in the market price of the Company's common stock.
 
   Under the terms of the Employee Stock Purchase Plan, eligible employees may
purchase common stock through payroll deductions at 90% of the lower of market
value at the beginning or market value at the end of the plan year.
 
12. Profit Sharing and Postemployment Benefit Plans
 
   The Company contributes to profit sharing and other defined contribution
plans for the benefit of employees meeting certain eligibility requirements
and electing participation in the plans. The amount to be matched by the
Company is determined annually by Host REIT's Board of Directors. The Company
provides medical benefits to a limited number of retired employees meeting
restrictive eligibility requirements. Amounts for these items were not
material in 1998 through 2000.
 
13. Acquisitions and Dispositions
 
   The Company acquired the remaining unaffiliated partnership interests in
two full-service hotels by issuing approximately 612,000 cumulative preferred
OP Units and paid cash of approximately $6.8 million. During 2000, the holders
of approximately 593,000 cumulative preferred OP Units converted to common OP
Units on a one-for-one basis.
 
   The Company acquired or gained controlling interest in 36 hotels with
15,166 rooms in 1998. Twenty-five of the 1998 acquisitions, consisting of the
Blackstone Acquisition and the Partnership Mergers, were completed on December
30, 1998 in conjunction with the REIT Conversion. Additionally, three full-
service properties were contributed to one of the Non-Controlled Subsidiaries
(Note 5). These acquisitions are summarized below.
 
   In December 1998, the Company completed the acquisition of, or controlling
interests in, twelve hotels and one mortgage loan secured by an additional
hotel (the "Blackstone Acquisition") from the Blackstone Group, a Delaware
limited partnership, and a series of funds controlled by affiliates of
Blackstone Real Estate Partners (together, the "Blackstone Entities"). In
addition, the Company acquired a 25% interest in Swissotel Management (USA)
L.L.C., which operates five Swissotel hotels in the United States, which the
Company transferred to Crestline in connection with the Distribution. The
Operating Partnership issued approximately 47.7

million OP Units, which OP Units are redeemable for the Company's common stock
(or cash equivalent at Host Marriott's option), assumed debt and made cash
payments totaling approximately $920 million and distributed 1.4 million of the
shares of Crestline common stock to the Blackstone Entities. As of December 31,
2000, the Blackstone Entities owned approximately 16% of the outstanding OP
Units of the Operating Partnership. On February 7, 2001, the Blackstone
Entities converted 12.5 million OP Units to common shares and immediately sold
them to an underwriter for sale on the open market. As a result, the Blackstone
Entities now own approximately 12% of the outstanding OP Units of the Operating
Partnership.
 
   In December 1998, the Company announced the completion of the Partnership
Mergers which was the roll-up of eight public partnerships and four private
partnerships which own or control 28 properties, 13 of which were already
consolidated (the "Partnership Mergers"). The Operating Partnership issued
approximately 25.8 million OP Units to partners for their interests valued at
approximately $333 million. As of December 31, 2000, approximately 16.6 million
OP Units remain outstanding.
 
   As a result of these transactions, the Company increased its ownership of
most of the 28 properties to 100% while consolidating 13 additional hotels
(4,445 rooms).
 
   During 1998, prior to the Partnership mergers, the Company acquired a
controlling interest in the Atlanta Marriott Marquis II Limited Partnership,
which owns an interest in the 1,671-room Atlanta Marriott Marquis for
approximately $239 million. The Company also acquired a controlling interest in
two partnerships that own four hotels for approximately $74 million. In
addition, the Company acquired four Ritz-Carlton hotels and two additional
hotels totaling over 2,200 rooms for approximately $465 million.
 
   During 1999 and 1998, the Company disposed of seven hotels (2,430 rooms) for
a total consideration of $410 million and recognized a net gain of $74 million.
 
   During 2000 and 1999, respectively, approximately 652,000 and 467,000 OP
Units were redeemed for common stock and an additional 360,000 and 233,000 OP
Units were redeemed for $3 million and $2 million in cash.

15. Marriott International Distribution and Relationship with Marriott
International
 
   The Company and Marriott International (formerly a wholly owned subsidiary,
the common stock of which was distributed to the Company's shareholders on
October 8, 1993) have entered into various agreements in connection with the
Marriott International Distribution and thereafter which provide, among other
things, that (i) the majority of the Company's hotel lodging properties are
managed by Marriott International (see Note 16); (ii) nine of the Company's
full-service properties are operated under franchise agreements with Marriott
International with terms of 15 to 30 years; (iii) Marriott International and
the Company formed a joint venture and Marriott International provided the
Company with $29 million in debt financing at an average interest rate of
12.7% and $28 million in preferred equity in 1996 for the acquisition of two
full-service properties in Mexico City, Mexico; and (iv) Marriott
International provides certain limited administrative services.
 
   Additionally, Marriott International has the right to purchase up to 20% of
the voting stock of the Company if certain events involving a change in
control of the Company occur.
 
   During December 2000, the newly created Joint Venture formed by Rockledge
and Marriott International acquired the partnership interests in two
partnerships that collectively own 120 limited service hotels for
approximately $372 million plus interest and legal fees (see Note 5). The
Joint Venture financed the acquisition with mezzanine indebtedness borrowed
from Marriott International and with cash and other assets contributed by
Rockledge and Marriott International. Rockledge and Marriott International
each own a 50% interest in the Joint Venture as of December 31, 2000.
 
   In 1998, the Company paid to Marriott International $196 million in hotel
management fees and $9 million in franchise fees. Beginning in 1999, these
fees, totaling $240 million and $218 million in 2000 and 1999, respectively,
were paid by the lessees (see Note 10). In 2000, 1999 and 1998, the Company
paid to Marriott International $0.2 million, $0.3 million and $4 million,
respectively, in interest and commitment fees under the debt financing and
line of credit provided by Marriott International and $2 million, $3 million,
and $3 million, respectively, for limited administrative services and office
space. In connection with the discontinued senior living communities'
business, the Company paid Marriott International $13 million in management
fees during 1998.
 
16. Hotel Management Agreements
 
   Most of the Company's hotels are subject to management agreements (the
"Agreements") under which Marriott International manages the Company's hotels,
generally for an initial term of 15 to 20 years with renewal terms at the
option of Marriott International of up to an additional 16 to 30 years. The
Agreements generally provide for payment of base management fees equal to one
to four percent of sales and incentive management fees generally equal to 20%
to 50% of Operating Profit (as defined in the Agreements) over a priority
return (as defined) to the Company, with total incentive management fees not
to exceed 20% of cumulative Operating Profit, or 20% of current year Operating
Profit. In the event of early termination of the Agreements, Marriott
International will receive additional fees based on the unexpired term and
expected future base and incentive management fees. The Company has the option
to terminate certain management agreements if specified performance thresholds
are not satisfied. No agreement with respect to a single lodging facility is
cross-collateralized or cross-defaulted to any other agreement and a single
agreement may be canceled under certain conditions, although such cancellation
will not trigger the cancellation of any other agreement.

                     HOST MARRIOTT, L.P. AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued)
 
 
   As a result of the REIT Conversion, all fees payable under the Agreements
for subsequent periods are the primary obligations of the Lessees. The
obligations of the leases with Crestline were guaranteed to a limited extent
by Crestline on 116 of the leases through December 31, 2000. The Company
remained obligated to the managers in case the Lessee fails to pay these fees
(but it would be entitled to reimbursement from the lessee under the terms of
the Leases). Effective January 1, 2001, the Company effectively terminated the
Crestline leases through the purchase of the Crestline Lessee Entities by the
Company's wholly-owned TRS. The TRS will assume the obligations under the
Agreements as lessee.
 
   Pursuant to the terms of the Agreements, Marriott International is required
to furnish the hotels with certain services ("Chain Services") which are
generally provided on a central or regional basis to all hotels in the
Marriott International hotel system. Chain Services include central training,
advertising and promotion, a national reservation system, computerized payroll
and accounting services, and such additional services as needed which may be
more efficiently performed on a centralized basis. Costs and expenses incurred
in providing such services are required to be allocated among all domestic
hotels managed, owned or leased by Marriott International or its subsidiaries.
In addition, the Company's hotels also participate in the Marriott Rewards
program. The cost of this program is charged to all hotels in the Marriott
hotel system.
 
   The Lessees are obligated to provide the manager with sufficient funds to
cover the cost of (a) certain non-routine repairs and maintenance to the
hotels which are normally capitalized; and (b) replacements and renewals to
the hotels' property and improvements. Under certain circumstances, the lessee
will be required to establish escrow accounts for such purposes under terms
outlined in the Agreements.
 
   The Lessees assumed franchise agreements with Marriott International for 10
hotels. Pursuant to these franchise agreements, the Lessee generally pays a
franchise fee based on a percentage of room sales and food and beverage sales
as well as certain other fees for advertising and reservations. Franchise fees
for room sales vary from four to six percent of sales, while fees for food and
beverage sales vary from two to three percent of sales. The terms of the
franchise agreements are from 15 to 30 years.
 
   The Lessees assumed management agreements with The Ritz-Carlton Hotel
Company, LLC ("Ritz-Carlton"), an affiliate of Marriott International, to
manage nine of the Company's hotels. These agreements have an initial term of
15 to 25 years with renewal terms at the option of Ritz-Carlton of up to an
additional 10 to 40 years. Base management fees vary from two to five percent
of sales and incentive management fees are generally equal to 20% of available
cash flow or operating profit, as defined in the agreements.
 
   The Lessees also assumed management agreements with hotel management
companies other than Marriott International and Ritz-Carlton for 23 of the
Company's hotels (10 of which are franchised under the Marriott brand). These
agreements generally provide for an initial term of 10 to 20 years with
renewal terms at the option of either party or, in some cases, the hotel
management company of up to an additional one to 15 years. The agreements
generally provide for payment of base management fees equal to one to four
percent of sales. Seventeen of the 23 agreements also provide for incentive
management fees generally equal to 10 to 25 percent of available cash flow,
operating profit, or net operating income, as defined in the agreements.
 
17. Relationship with Crestline Capital Corporation
 
   The Company and Crestline entered into various agreements in connection
with the Distribution as discussed in Note 3 and further outlined below.
 
 Distribution Agreement
 
   Crestline and the Company entered into a distribution agreement (the
"Distribution Agreement"), which provided for, among other things, (i) the
distribution of shares of Crestline in connection with the Distribution;
 
                                      82

                     HOST MARRIOTT, L.P. AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued)
 
(ii) the division between Crestline and the Company of certain assets and
liabilities; (iii) the transfer to Crestline of the 25% interest in the
Swissotel management company acquired in the Blackstone Acquisition and (iv)
certain other agreements governing the relationship between Crestline and the
Company following the Distribution. Crestline also granted the Company a
contingent right to purchase Crestline's interest in Swissotel Management
(USA) L.L.C. at fair market value in the event the tax laws are changed so
that the Company could own such interest without jeopardizing its status as a
REIT.
 
   Subject to certain exceptions, the Distribution Agreement provides for,
among other things, assumptions of liabilities and cross-indemnities designed
to allocate to Crestline, effective as of the date of the Distribution,
financial responsibilities for liabilities arising out of, or in connection
with, the business of the senior living communities.
 
 Asset Management Agreement
 
   The Company and the Non-Controlled Subsidiaries entered into asset
management agreements (the "Asset Management Agreements") with Crestline
whereby Crestline agreed to provide advice on the operation of the hotels and
review financial results, projections, loan documents and hotel management
agreements. Crestline also agreed to consult on market conditions and
competition, as well as monitor and negotiate with governmental agencies,
insurance companies and contractors. Crestline was entitled to a fee not to
exceed $4.5 million for each calendar year for its consulting services under
the Asset Management Agreements, which included $0.25 million related to the
Non-Controlled Subsidiaries. The Asset Management Agreements were terminated
effective January 1, 2001 in connection with the acquisition of the Crestline
Lessee Entities.
 
 Non-Competition Agreement
 
   Crestline and the Company entered into a non-competition agreement that
limited the respective parties' future business opportunities. Pursuant to
this non-competition agreement, Crestline agreed, among other things, that
until the earlier of December 31, 2008, or the date on which it is no longer a
Lessee of more than 25% of the number of hotels owned by the Company at the
time of the Distribution, it would not own any full service hotel, manage any
limited service or full service hotel owned by the Company, or own or operate
a full service hotel franchise system operating under a common name brand,
subject to certain exceptions. In addition, the Company agreed not to
participate in the business of leasing, operating or franchising limited
service or full service properties, subject to certain exceptions. In
connection with the acquisition of the Crestline Lessee Entities, the non-
competition agreement was terminated effective January 1, 2001.

18. Geographic and Business Segment Information
 
   The Company operates one business segment, hotel ownership. The Company's
hotels are primarily operated under the Marriott or Ritz-Carlton brands,
contain an average of approximately 478 rooms as of December 31, 2000, as well
as supply other amenities such as meeting space and banquet facilities; a
variety of restaurants and lounges; gift shops and swimming pools. They are
typically located in downtown, airport, suburban and resort areas throughout
the United States. During most of 1998, the Company's foreign operations
consisted of six full-service hotel properties located in Mexico and Canada.
As of December 31, 1998, the Company's foreign operations had decreased to
four Canadian hotel properties, as the hotels in Mexico were contributed to
Rockledge Hotel Properties, Inc. There were no intercompany sales between the
properties and the Company. The following table presents revenues and long-
lived assets for each of the geographical areas in which the Company operates

   All subsidiaries of the Company guarantee the Senior Notes except those
owning 48 of the Company's full service hotels and HMH HPT RIBM LLC and HMH
HPT CBM LLC, the lessees of the Residence Inn and Courtyard properties,
respectively. The separate financial statements of each guaranteeing
subsidiary (each, a "Guarantor Subsidiary") are not presented because the
Company's management has concluded that such financial statements are not
material to investors. The guarantee of each Guarantor Subsidiary is full and

   In December 1999, the Company retroactively changed its method of
accounting for contingent rental revenues to conform to the Securities and
Exchange Commission's Staff Accounting Bulletin (SAB) No. 101. As a result,
contingent rental revenue is deferred on the balance sheet until certain
revenue thresholds are realized. SAB No. 101 has no impact on full-year 2000
and 1999 revenues, net income, or earnings per share because all rental
revenues considered contingent under SAB No. 101 were earned as of December
31, 2000 and 1999. The change in accounting principle has no effect prior to
1999 because percentage rent relates to rental income on our leases, which
began in 1999.
 
   For all years presented, the first three quarters consist of 12 weeks each
and the fourth quarter includes 16 weeks. The sum of the basic and diluted
earnings (loss) per common share for the four quarters in all years presented
differs from the annual earnings per common share due to the required method
of computing the weighted average number of shares in the respective periods.

                  REPORT OF INDEPENDENT PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS
 
To CCHP I Corporation:
 
   We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of CCHP I
Corporation and its subsidiaries (a Delaware corporation) as of December 29,
2000 and December 31, 1999, and the related consolidated statements of
operations, shareholder's equity and cash flows for the fiscal years ended
December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999. These consolidated financial
statements are the responsibility of CCHP I Corporation's management. Our
responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial
statements based on our audits.
 
   We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally
accepted in the United States. Those standards require that we plan and
perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial
statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on
a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial
statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used
and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the
overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a
reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
   In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above
present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of CCHP I
Corporation and its subsidiaries as of December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999
and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the fiscal years
then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the
United States.

                  NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
 Organization
 
   CCHP I Corporation (the "Company") was incorporated in the state of
Delaware on November 23, 1998 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Crestline
Capital Corporation ("Crestline"). On December 29, 1998, Crestline became a
publicly traded company when Host Marriott Corporation ("Host Marriott")
completed its plan of reorganizing its business operations by spinning-off
Crestline to the shareholders of Host Marriott as part of a series of
transactions pursuant to which Host Marriott converted into a real estate
investment trust ("REIT").
 
   On December 31, 1998, wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company (the "Tenant
Subsidiaries") entered into lease agreements with Host Marriott to lease 35 of
Host Marriott's full-service hotels with the existing management agreements of
the leased hotels assigned to the Tenant Subsidiaries. As of December 29,
2000, the Company leased 34 full-service hotels from Host Marriott.
 
   The Company operates as a unit of Crestline, utilizing Crestline's
employees, insurance and administrative services since the Company does not
have any employees. Certain direct expenses are paid by Crestline and charged
directly or allocated to the Company. Certain general and administrative costs
of Crestline are allocated to the Company, using a variety of methods,
principally including Crestline's specific identification of individual costs
and otherwise through allocations based upon estimated levels of effort
devoted by general and administrative departments to the Company or relative
measures of the size of the Company based on revenues. In the opinion of
management, the methods for allocating general and administrative expenses and
other direct costs are reasonable.
 
 Principles of Consolidation
 
   The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company
and its subsidiaries. All material intercompany transactions and balances
between the Company and its subsidiaries have been eliminated.
 
 Fiscal Year
 
   The Company's fiscal year ends on the Friday nearest December 31.
 
 Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
   The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of
three months or less at date of purchase as cash equivalents.
 
 Revenues
 
   The Company records the gross property-level revenues generated by the
hotels as revenues.
 
 Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements
 
   The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make
estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and
liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of
the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses
during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 Hotel Leases
 
   The Tenant Subsidiaries entered into leases with Host Marriott effective
January 1, 1999 for 35 full-service hotels. See Note 6 for a discussion of the
sale of all but one of the full-service hotel leases in 2001.
 
   Each hotel lease had an initial term generally ranging from three to seven
years. The Tenant Subsidiaries were required to pay the greater of (i) a
minimum rent specified in each hotel lease or (ii) a percentage rent based
upon a specified percentage of aggregate revenues from the hotel, including
room revenues, food and beverage revenues, and other income, in excess of
specified thresholds. The amount of minimum rent is increased each year based
upon 50% of the increase in CPI during the previous twelve months. Percentage
rent thresholds are increased each year based on a blend of the increases in
CPI and the Employment Cost Index during the previous twelve months. The hotel
leases generally provided for a rent adjustment in the event of damage,
destruction, partial taking or certain capital expenditures.
 
   The Tenant Subsidiaries were responsible for paying all of the expenses of
operating the hotels, including all personnel costs, utility costs, and
general repair and maintenance of the hotels. In addition, the Tenant
Subsidiaries were responsible for all fees payable to the hotel manager,
including base and incentive management fees, chain services payments and
franchise or system fees. Host Marriott was responsible for real estate and
personal property taxes, property casualty insurance, equipment rent, ground
lease rent, maintaining a reserve fund for FF&E replacements and capital
expenditures.
 
   For those hotels where Marriott International is the manager, it had a
noneconomic membership interest with certain limited voting rights in the
Tenant Subsidiaries.
 
 FF&E Leases
 
   Prior to entering into the hotel leases, if the average tax basis of a
hotel's FF&E and other personal property exceeded 15% of the aggregate average
tax basis of the hotel's real and personal property (the "Excess FF&E"),

                      CCHP I CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued)
 
the Tenant Subsidiaries and affiliates of Host Marriott entered into lease
agreements (the "FF&E Leases") for the Excess FF&E. The terms of the FF&E
Leases generally ranged from two to three years and rent under the FF&E Leases
was a fixed amount.
 
 Guaranty and Pooling Agreement
 
   In connection with entering into the hotel leases, the Company, Crestline
and Host Marriott, entered into a pool guarantee and a pooling and security
agreement by which the Company provided a full guarantee and Crestline
provided a limited guarantee of all of the hotel lease obligations.
 
   The cumulative limit of Crestline's guarantee obligation was the greater of
ten percent of the aggregate rent payable for the immediately preceding fiscal
year under all of the Company's hotel leases or ten percent of the aggregate
rent payable under all of the Company's hotel leases for 1999. In the event
that Crestline's obligation under the pooling and guarantee agreement was
reduced to zero, the Company could terminate the agreement and Host Marriott
could terminate the Company's hotel leases without penalty.
 
   All of the Company's leases were cross-defaulted and the Company's
obligations under the guaranty were secured by all the funds received from its
Tenant Subsidiaries.
 
Note 3. Working Capital Notes
 
   Upon the commencement of the hotel leases, the Company purchased the
working capital of the leased hotels from Host Marriott for $26,832,000 with
the purchase price evidenced by notes that bear interest at 5.12%. Interest on
each note is due simultaneously with the rent payment of each hotel lease. The
principal amount of each note is due upon the termination of each hotel lease.
See Note 6 for a discussion of the repayment of all but one of the hotel
working notes in 2001. As of December 29, 2000, the outstanding balance of the
working capital notes was $26,011,000.

   Cash paid for interest expense in 2000 and 1999 totaled $1,351,000 and

Note 4. Management Agreements
 
   All of the Company's hotels are operated by hotel management companies
under long-term hotel management agreements between Host Marriott and hotel
management companies. The existing management agreements were assigned to the
Tenant Subsidiaries upon the execution of the hotel leases for the term of
each corresponding hotel lease. See Note 6 for a discussion of the transfer of
all of the management contracts to Host Marriott in 2001.
 
   The Tenant Subsidiaries were obligated to perform all of the obligations of
Host Marriott under the hotel management agreements including payment of fees
due under the management agreements other than certain

obligations including payment of property taxes, property casualty insurance
and ground rent, maintaining a reserve fund for FF&E replacements and capital
expenditures for which Host Marriott retained responsibility.
 
   Marriott International manages 30 of the 34 hotels under long-term
management agreements. The remaining four hotels are managed by other hotel
management companies. The management agreements generally provide for payment
of base management fees equal to one to four percent of revenues and incentive
management fees generally equal to 20% to 50% of Operating Profit (as defined
in the management agreements) over a priority return (as defined) to the
Tenant Subsidiaries, with total incentive management fees not to exceed 20% of
cumulative Operating Profit, or 20% of current year Operating Profit.
 
Note 5. Income Taxes
 
   The Company is included in the consolidated Federal income tax return of
Crestline and its affiliates (the "Group"). Tax expense is allocated to the
Company as a member of the Group based upon the relative contribution to the
Group's consolidated taxable income/loss and changes in temporary differences.
This allocation method results in Federal, state and Canadian tax expense
allocated for the period presented that is substantially equal to the expense
that would have been recognized if the Company had filed separate tax returns.
 
   The provision for income taxes for the fiscal years 2000 and 1999 consists

   The significant difference between the Company's effective income tax rate
and the Federal state tax rate is attributable to the state and Canadian tax
rates.
 
   As of December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999, the Company had no deferred
tax assets. The tax effect of the temporary difference that gives rise to the
Company's deferred tax liability is generally attributable to the hotel
working capital.
 
Note 6. Subsequent Event
 
   On December 17, 1999, the Work Incentives Improvement Act was passed which
contained certain tax provisions related to REITs commonly known as the REIT
Modernization Act ("RMA"). Under the RMA, beginning on January 1, 2001, REITs
could lease hotels to a "taxable subsidiary" if the hotel is operated and
managed on behalf of such subsidiary by an independent third party. This law
enabled Host Marriott, beginning January 2001, to lease its hotels to a
taxable subsidiary. Under the terms of the Company's full-service hotel
leases, Host Marriott, at its sole discretion, could purchase the full-service
hotel leases for a price equal to the fair market value of the Company's
leasehold interest in the leases based upon an agreed upon formula in the
leases.
 
   On November 13, 2000, Crestline, the Company and the Tenant Subsidiaries
entered into an agreement with a subsidiary of Host Marriott for the purchase
and sale of Tenant Subsidiaries' leasehold interests in the full-service
hotels. The purchase and sale transaction would generally transfer ownership
of the Tenant Subsidiaries owned by the Company to a subsidiary of Host
Marriott for a total consideration of $32.6 million in cash. On January 10,
2001, upon the receipt of all required consents, the purchase and sale
transaction was completed for $28.2 million, which reflects the deferral of
the sale of one of the leases for $4.4 million. The Company

recognized a pre-tax gain on the transaction of approximately $28 million in
the first quarter of 2001, net of transaction costs. The effective date of the
transaction was January 1, 2001.
 
   In connection with the sale of the Tenant Subsidiaries, the hotel working
capital notes for all but one of the full-service hotels were repaid.
Accordingly, the Company's remaining hotel working capital notes payable to
Host Marriott after the sale of the Tenant Subsidiaries on January 10, 2001
totaled $2,003,000.

                  REPORT OF INDEPENDENT PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS
 
To CCHP II Corporation:
 
   We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of CCHP II
Corporation and its subsidiaries (a Delaware corporation) as of December 29,
2000 and December 31, 1999, and the related consolidated statements of
operations, shareholder's equity and cash flows for the fiscal years ended
December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999. These consolidated financial
statements are the responsibility of CCHP II Corporation's management. Our
responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial
statements based on our audit.
 
   We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally
accepted in the United States. Those standards require that we plan and
perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial
statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on
a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial
statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used
and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the
overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a
reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
   In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above
present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of CCHP II
Corporation and its subsidiaries as of December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999
and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the fiscal years
then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the
United States.

   CCHP II Corporation (the "Company") was incorporated in the state of
Delaware on November 23, 1998 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Crestline
Capital Corporation ("Crestline"). On December 29, 1998, Crestline became a
publicly traded company when Host Marriott Corporation ("Host Marriott")
completed its plan of reorganizing its business operations by spinning-off
Crestline to the shareholders of Host Marriott as part of a series of
transactions pursuant to which Host Marriott converted into a real estate
investment trust ("REIT").
 
   On December 31, 1998, wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company (the "Tenant
Subsidiaries") entered into lease agreements with Host Marriott to lease 28 of
Host Marriott's full-service hotels with the existing management agreements of
the leased hotels assigned to the Tenant Subsidiaries. As of December 29,
2000, the Company leased 28 full-service hotels from Host Marriott.
 
   The Company operates as a unit of Crestline, utilizing Crestline's
employees, insurance and administrative services since the Company does not
have any employees. Certain direct expenses are paid by Crestline and charged
directly or allocated to the Company. Certain general and administrative costs
of Crestline are allocated to the Company, using a variety of methods,
principally including Crestline's specific identification of individual costs
and otherwise through allocations based upon estimated levels of effort
devoted by general and administrative departments to the Company or relative
measures of the size of the Company based on revenues. In the opinion of
management, the methods for allocating general and administrative expenses and
other direct costs are reasonable.
 
 Principles of Consolidation
 
   The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company
and its subsidiaries. All material intercompany transactions and balances
between the Company and its subsidiaries have been eliminated.
 
 Fiscal Year
 
   The Company's fiscal year ends on the Friday nearest December 31.
 
 Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
   The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of
three months or less at date of purchase as cash equivalents.
 
 Revenues
 
   The Company records the gross property-level revenues generated by the
hotels as revenues.
 
 Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements
 
   The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make
estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and
liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of
the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses
during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

</TABLE>

 
 Hotel Leases
 
   The Tenant Subsidiaries entered into leases with Host Marriott effective
January 1, 1999 for 28 full-service hotels. See Note 6 for a discussion of the
sale of all of the full-service hotel leases in 2001.
 
   Each hotel lease had an initial term of eight years. The Tenant
Subsidiaries were required to pay the greater of (i) a minimum rent specified
in each hotel lease or (ii) a percentage rent based upon a specified
percentage of aggregate revenues from the hotel, including room revenues, food
and beverage revenues, and other income, in excess of specified thresholds.
The amount of minimum rent is increased each year based upon 50% of the
increase in CPI during the previous twelve months. Percentage rent thresholds
are increased each year based on a blend of the increases in CPI and the
Employment Cost Index during the previous twelve months. The hotel leases
generally provide for a rent adjustment in the event of damage, destruction,
partial taking or certain capital expenditures.
 
   The Tenant Subsidiaries were responsible for paying all of the expenses of
operating the hotels, including all personnel costs, utility costs, and
general repair and maintenance of the hotels. In addition, the Tenant
Subsidiaries were responsible for all fees payable to the hotel manager,
including base and incentive management fees, chain services payments and
franchise or system fees. Host Marriott was responsible for real estate and
personal property taxes, property casualty insurance, equipment rent, ground
lease rent, maintaining a reserve fund for FF&E replacements and capital
expenditures.
 
   For those hotels where Marriott International is the manager, it had a
noneconomic membership interest with certain limited voting rights in the
Tenant Subsidiaries.
 
 FF&E Leases
 
   Prior to entering into the hotel leases, if the average tax basis of a
hotel's FF&E and other personal property exceeded 15% of the aggregate average
tax basis of the hotel's real and personal property (the "Excess FF&E"), the
Tenant Subsidiaries and affiliates of Host Marriott entered into lease
agreements (the "FF&E Leases") for
 
                                      110

<PAGE>
 
                     CCHP II CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued)
 
the Excess FF&E. The terms of the FF&E Leases generally ranged from two to
three years and rent under the FF&E Leases was a fixed amount.
 
 Guaranty and Pooling Agreement
 
   In connection with entering into the hotel leases, the Company, Crestline
and Host Marriott, entered into a pool guarantee and a pooling and security
agreement by which the Company provided a full guarantee and Crestline
provided a limited guarantee of all of the hotel lease obligations.
 
   The cumulative limit of Crestline's guarantee obligation was the greater of
ten percent of the aggregate rent payable for the immediately preceding fiscal
year under all of the Company's hotel leases or ten percent of the aggregate
rent payable under all of the Company's hotel leases for 1999. In the event
that Crestline's obligation under the pooling and guarantee agreement was
reduced to zero, the Company could terminate the agreement and Host Marriott
could terminate the Company's hotel leases without penalty.
 
   All of the Company's leases were cross-defaulted and the Company's
obligations under the guaranty were secured by all the funds received from its
Tenant Subsidiaries.
 
Note 3. Working Capital Notes
 
   Upon the commencement of the hotel leases, the Company purchased the
working capital of the leased hotels from Host Marriott for $18,090,000 with
the purchase price evidenced by notes that bear interest at 5.12%. Interest on
each note is due simultaneously with the rent payment of each hotel lease. The
principal amount of each note is due upon the termination of each hotel lease.
See Note 6 for a discussion of the repayment of all of the hotel working
capital notes in 2001. As of December 29, 2000, the outstanding balance of the
working capital notes was $18,090,000, which mature in 2006. Cash paid for
interest expense in 2000 and 1999 totaled $926,000 and $856,000, respectively.
 
Note 4. Management Agreements
 
   All of the Company's hotels are operated by hotel management companies
under long-term hotel management agreements between Host Marriott and hotel
management companies. The existing management agreements were assigned to the
Tenant Subsidiaries upon the execution of the hotel leases for the term of
each corresponding hotel lease. See Note 6 for a discussion of the transfer of
all of the management agreements to Host Marriott in 2001.
 
   The Tenant Subsidiaries were obligated to perform all of the obligations of
Host Marriott under the hotel management agreements including payment of fees
due under the management agreements other than certain obligations including
payment of property taxes, property casualty insurance and ground rent,
maintaining a reserve fund for FF&E replacements and capital expenditures for
which Host Marriott retained responsibility.
 
   Marriott International manages 23 of the 28 hotels under long-term
management agreements. The Company's remaining five hotels are managed by
other hotel management companies. The management agreements generally provide
for payment of base management fees equal to one to four percent of revenues
and incentive management fees generally equal to 20% to 50% of Operating
Profit (as defined in the management agreements) over a priority return (as
defined) to the Tenant Subsidiaries, with total incentive management fees not
to exceed 20% of cumulative Operating Profit, or 20% of current year Operating
Profit.
 
Note 5. Income Taxes
 
   The Company is included in the consolidated Federal income tax return of
Crestline and its affiliates (the "Group"). Tax expense is allocated to the
Company as a member of the Group based upon the relative
 
                                      111

contribution to the Group's consolidated taxable income/loss and changes in
temporary differences. This allocation method results in Federal, state and
Canadian tax expense allocated for the period presented that is substantially
equal to the expense that would have been recognized if the Company had filed
separate tax returns.
 
   The provision for income taxes for the fiscal years 2000 and 1999 consists

   The significant difference between the Company's effective income tax rate
and the Federal statutory tax rate is attributable to the state and Canadian
tax rates.
 
   As of December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999, the Company had no deferred
tax assets. The tax effect of the temporary differences that gives rise to the
Company's federal deferred tax liability is generally attributable to the
hotel working capital.
 
Note 6. Subsequent Event
 
   On December 17, 1999, the Work Incentives Improvement Act was passed which
contained certain tax provisions related to REITs commonly known as the REIT
Modernization Act ("RMA"). Under the RMA, beginning on January 1, 2001, REITs
could lease hotels to a "taxable subsidiary" if the hotel is operated and
managed on behalf of such subsidiary by an independent third party. This law
enabled Host Marriott, beginning January 2001, to lease its hotels to a
taxable subsidiary. Under the terms of the Company's full-service hotel
leases, Host Marriott, at its sole discretion, could purchase the full-service
hotel leases for a price equal to the fair market value of the Company's
leasehold interest in the leases based upon an agreed upon formula in the
leases.
 
   On November 13, 2000, Crestline, the Company and the Tenant Subsidiaries
entered into an agreement with a subsidiary of Host Marriott for the purchase
and sale of the Tenant Subsidiaries' leasehold interests in the full-service
hotels. The purchase and sale transaction would generally transfer ownership
of the Tenant Subsidiaries owned by the Company to a subsidiary of Host
Marriott for a total consideration of $66.8 million in cash. On January 10,
2001, upon receipt of all required consents, the purchase and sale transaction
was completed for $66.8 million. The Company will recognize a pre-tax gain on
the transaction of approximately $66.6 million in the first quarter of 2001,
net of transaction costs. The effective date of the transaction was January 1,
2001.
 
   In connection with the sale of the Tenant Subsidiaries, all of the hotel
working capital notes were repaid on January 10, 2001.

                  REPORT OF INDEPENDENT PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS
 
To CCHP III Corporation:
 
   We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of CCHP III
Corporation and its subsidiaries (a Delaware corporation) as of December 29,
2000 and December 31, 1999, and the related consolidated statements of
operations, shareholder's equity and cash flows for the fiscal years ended
December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999. These consolidated financial
statements are the responsibility of CCHP III Corporation's management. Our
responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial
statements based on our audits.
 
   We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally
accepted in the United States. Those standards require that we plan and
perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial
statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on
a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial
statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used
and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the
overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a
reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
   In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above
present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of CCHP III
Corporation and its subsidiaries as of December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999
and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the fiscal years
then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the
United States.

                     CCHP III CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
 

                  NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
 Organization
 
   CCHP III Corporation (the "Company") was incorporated in the state of
Delaware on November 23, 1998 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Crestline
Capital Corporation ("Crestline"). On December 29, 1998, Crestline became a
publicly traded company when Host Marriott Corporation ("Host Marriott")
completed its plan of reorganizing its business operations by spinning-off
Crestline to the shareholders of Host Marriott as part of a series of
transactions pursuant to which Host Marriott converted into a real estate
investment trust ("REIT").
 
   On December 31, 1998, wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company (the "Tenant
Subsidiaries") entered into lease agreements with Host Marriott to lease 31 of
Host Marriott's full-service hotels with the existing management agreements of
the leased hotels assigned to the Tenant Subsidiaries. As of December 29,
2000, the Company leased 29 full-service hotels from Host Marriott.
 
   The Company operates as a unit of Crestline, utilizing Crestline's
employees, insurance and administrative services since the Company does not
have any employees. Certain direct expenses are paid by Crestline and charged
directly or allocated to the Company. Certain general and administrative costs
of Crestline are allocated to the Company, using a variety of methods,
principally including Crestline's specific identification of individual costs
and otherwise through allocations based upon estimated levels of effort
devoted by general and administrative departments to the Company or relative
measures of the size of the Company based on revenues. In the opinion of
management, the methods for allocating general and administrative expenses and
other direct costs are reasonable.
 
 Principles of Consolidation
 
   The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company
and its subsidiaries. All material intercompany transactions and balances
between the Company and its subsidiaries have been eliminated.
 
 Fiscal Year
 
   The Company's fiscal year ends on the Friday nearest December 31.
 
 Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
   The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of
three months or less at date of purchase as cash equivalents.
 
 Restricted Cash
 
   In connection with the lender requirements of one of the leased hotels, the
Company is required to maintain a separate account with the lender on behalf
of the Company for the operating profit and incentive management fees of the
hotel. Following an annual audit, amounts will be distributed to the hotel's
manager and to the Company in accordance with the loan agreement.
 
 Revenues
 
   The Company records the gross property-level revenues generated by the
hotels as revenues.
 
 Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements
 
   The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make
estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets

and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the
date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and
expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those
estimates.

</TABLE>

 
 Hotel Leases
 
   The Tenant Subsidiaries entered into leases with Host Marriott effective
January 1, 1999 for 31 full-service hotels. See Note 6 for a discussion of the
sale of all of the full-service hotel leases in 2001.
 
   Each hotel lease had an initial term of nine years. The Tenant Subsidiaries
were required to pay the greater of (i) a minimum rent specified in each hotel
lease or (ii) a percentage rent based upon a specified percentage of aggregate
revenues from the hotel, including room revenues, food and beverage revenues,
and other income, in excess of specified thresholds. The amount of minimum
rent is increased each year based upon 50% of the increase in CPI during the
previous twelve months. Percentage rent thresholds are increased each year
based on a blend of the increases in CPI and the Employment Cost Index during
the previous twelve months. The hotel leases generally provide for a rent
adjustment in the event of damage, destruction, partial taking or certain
capital expenditures.
 
   The Tenant Subsidiaries were responsible for paying all of the expenses of
operating the hotels, including all personnel costs, utility costs, and
general repair and maintenance of the hotels. In addition, the Tenant
Subsidiaries were responsible for all fees payable to the hotel manager,
including base and incentive management fees, chain services payments and
franchise or system fees. Host Marriott was responsible for real estate and
personal property taxes, property casualty insurance, equipment rent, ground
lease rent, maintaining a reserve fund for FF&E replacements and capital
expenditures.
 
   For those hotels where Marriott International is the manager, it had a
noneconomic membership interest with certain limited voting rights in the
Tenant Subsidiaries.

            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued)
 
 FF&E Leases
 
   Prior to entering into the hotel leases, if the average tax basis of a
hotel's FF&E and other personal property exceeded 15% of the aggregate average
tax basis of the hotel's real and personal property (the "Excess FF&E"), the
Tenant Subsidiaries and affiliates of Host Marriott entered into lease
agreements (the "FF&E Leases") for the Excess FF&E. The terms of the FF&E
Leases generally ranged from two to three years and rent under the FF&E Leases
was a fixed amount.
 
 Guaranty and Pooling Agreement
 
   In connection with entering into the hotel leases, the Company, Crestline
and Host Marriott, entered into a pool guarantee and a pooling and security
agreement by which the Company provided a full guarantee and Crestline
provided a limited guarantee of all of the hotel lease obligations.
 
   The cumulative limit of Crestline's guarantee obligation was the greater of
ten percent of the aggregate rent payable for the immediately preceding fiscal
year under all of the Company's hotel leases or ten percent of the aggregate
rent payable under all of the Company's hotel leases for 1999. In the event
that Crestline's obligation under the pooling and guarantee agreement was
reduced to zero, the Company could terminate the agreement and Host Marriott
could terminate the Company's hotel leases without penalty.
 
   All of the Company's leases were cross-defaulted and the Company's
obligations under the guaranty were secured by all the funds received from its
Tenant Subsidiaries.
 
Note 3. Working Capital Notes
 
   Upon the commencement of the hotel leases, the Company purchased the
working capital of the leased hotels from Host Marriott for $22,046,000 with
the purchase price evidenced by notes that bear interest at 5.12%. Interest on
each note is due simultaneously with the rent payment of each hotel lease. The
principal amount of each note is due upon the termination of each hotel lease.
See Note 6 for a discussion of the repayment of all of the hotel working
capital notes in 2001. As of December 29, 2000, the outstanding balance of the
working capital notes was $21,697,000, which mature in 2007. Cash paid for
interest expense in fiscal years 2000 and 1999 totaled $1,112,000 and
$1,042,000, respectively.
 
Note 4. Management Agreements
 
   All of the Company's hotels are operated by hotel management companies
under long-term hotel management agreements between Host Marriott and hotel
management companies. The existing management agreements were assigned to the
Tenant Subsidiaries upon the execution of the hotel leases for the term of
each corresponding hotel lease. See Note 6 for a discussion of the transfer of
all of the management agreements to Host Marriott in 2001.
 
   The Tenant Subsidiaries were obligated to perform all of the obligations of
Host Marriott under the hotel management agreements including payment of fees
due under the management agreements other than certain obligations including
payment of property taxes, property casualty insurance and ground rent,
maintaining a reserve fund for FF&E replacements and capital expenditures for
which Host Marriott retained responsibility.
 
   Marriott International manages 21 of the 29 hotels under long-term
management agreements. The Company's remaining eight hotels are managed by
other hotel management companies. The management agreements generally provide
for payment of base management fees equal to one to four percent of revenues
and incentive management fees generally equal to 20% to 50% of Operating
Profit (as defined in the management
 
                                      121

agreements) over a priority return (as defined) to the Tenant Subsidiaries,
with total incentive management fees not to exceed 20% of cumulative Operating
Profit, or 20% of current year Operating Profit.
 
Note 5. Income Taxes
 
   The Company is included in the consolidated Federal income tax return of
Crestline and its affiliates (the "Group"). Tax expense is allocated to the
Company as a member of the Group based upon the relative contribution to the
Group's consolidated taxable income/loss and changes in temporary differences.
This allocation method results in Federal and net state tax expense allocated
for the period presented that is substantially equal to the expense that would
have been recognized if the Company had filed separate tax returns.
 
   The provision for income taxes for the fiscal years 2000 and 1999 consists
of the following (in thousands):

</TABLE>

 
   As of December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999, the Company had no deferred
tax assets. The tax effect of the temporary differences that gives rise to the
Company's deferred tax liability is generally attributable to the hotel
working capital.
 
Note 6. Subsequent Event
 
   On December 17, 1999, the Work Incentives Improvement Act was passed which
contained certain tax provisions related to REITs commonly known as the REIT
Modernization Act ("RMA"). Under the RMA, beginning on January 1, 2001, REITs
could lease hotels to a "taxable subsidiary" if the hotel is operated and
managed on behalf of such subsidiary by an independent third party. This law
enabled Host Marriott, beginning January 2001, to lease its hotels to a
taxable subsidiary. Under the terms of the Company's full-service hotel
leases, Host Marriott, at its sole discretion, could purchase the full-service
hotel leases for a price equal to the fair market value of the Company's
leasehold interest in the leases based upon an agreed upon formula in the
leases.
 
   On November 13, 2000, Crestline, the Company and the Tenant Subsidiaries
entered into an agreement with a subsidiary of Host Marriott for the purchase
and sale of the Tenant Subsidiaries' leasehold interests in the full-service
hotels. The purchase and sale transaction would generally transfer ownership
of the Tenant Subsidiaries owned by the Company to a subsidiary of Host
Marriott for a total consideration of $55.1 million in cash. On January 10,
2001, upon receipt of all required consents, the purchase and sale transaction
was completed for $55.1 million. The Company recognized a pre-tax gain on the
transaction of approximately $55 million in the first quarter of 2001, net of
transaction costs. The effective date of the transaction was January 1, 2001.
 
   In connection with the sale of the Tenant Subsidiaries, all of the hotel
working capital notes were repaid on January 10, 2001.

                  REPORT OF INDEPENDENT PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS
 
To CCHP IV Corporation:
 
   We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of CCHP IV
Corporation and its subsidiaries (a Delaware corporation) as of December 29,
2000 and December 31, 1999, and the related consolidated statements of
operations, shareholder's equity and cash flows for the fiscal years ended
December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999. These consolidated financial
statements are the responsibility of CCHP IV Corporation's management. Our
responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial
statements based on our audits.
 
   We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally
accepted in the United States. Those standards require that we plan and
perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial
statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on
a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial
statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used
and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the
overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a
reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
   In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above
present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of CCHP IV
Corporation and its subsidiaries as of December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999
and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the fiscal years
then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the
United States.

                  NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
 Organization
 
   CCHP IV Corporation (the "Company") was incorporated in the state of
Delaware on November 23, 1998 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Crestline
Capital Corporation ("Crestline"). On December 29, 1998, Crestline became a
publicly traded company when Host Marriott Corporation ("Host Marriott")
completed its plan of reorganizing its business operations by spinning-off
Crestline to the shareholders of Host Marriott as part of a series of
transactions pursuant to which Host Marriott converted into a real estate
investment trust ("REIT").
 
   On December 31, 1998, wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company (the "Tenant
Subsidiaries") entered into lease agreements with Host Marriott to lease 27 of
Host Marriott's full-service hotels with the existing management agreements of
the leased hotels assigned to the Tenant Subsidiaries. As of December 29,
2000, the Company leased 27 full-service hotels from Host Marriott.
 
   The Company operates as a unit of Crestline, utilizing Crestline's
employees, insurance and administrative services since the Company does not
have any employees. Certain direct expenses are paid by Crestline and charged
directly or allocated to the Company. Certain general and administrative costs
of Crestline are allocated to the Company, using a variety of methods,
principally including Crestline's specific identification of individual costs
and otherwise through allocations based upon estimated levels of effort
devoted by general and administrative departments to the Company or relative
measures of the size of the Company based on revenues. In the opinion of
management, the methods for allocating general and administrative expenses and
other direct costs are reasonable.
 
 Principles of Consolidation
 
   The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company
and its subsidiaries. All material intercompany transactions and balances
between the Company and its subsidiaries have been eliminated.
 
 Fiscal Year
 
   The Company's fiscal year ends on the Friday nearest December 31.
 
 Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
   The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of
three months or less at date of purchase as cash equivalents.
 
 Revenues
 
   The Company records the gross property-level revenues generated by the
hotels as revenues.
 
 Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements
 
   The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make
estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and
liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of
the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses
during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

</TABLE>

 
 Hotel Leases
 
   The Tenant Subsidiaries entered into leases with Host Marriott effective
January 1, 1999 for 27 full-service hotels. See Note 6 for a discussion of the
sale of all of the full-service hotel leases in 2001.
 
   Each hotel lease had an initial term of ten years. The Tenant Subsidiaries
were required to pay the greater of (i) a minimum rent specified in each hotel
lease or (ii) a percentage rent based upon a specified percentage of aggregate
revenues from the hotel, including room revenues, food and beverage revenues,
and other income, in excess of specified thresholds. The amount of minimum
rent is increased each year based upon 50% of the increase in CPI during the
previous twelve months. Percentage rent thresholds are increased each year
based on a blend of the increases in CPI and the Employment Cost Index during
the previous twelve months. The hotel leases generally provide for a rent
adjustment in the event of damage, destruction, partial taking or certain
capital expenditures.
 
   The Tenant Subsidiaries were responsible for paying all of the expenses of
operating the hotels, including all personnel costs, utility costs, and
general repair and maintenance of the hotels. In addition, the Tenant
Subsidiaries were responsible for all fees payable to the hotel manager,
including base and incentive management fees, chain services payments and
franchise or system fees. Host Marriott was responsible for real estate and
personal property taxes, property casualty insurance, equipment rent, ground
lease rent, maintaining a reserve fund for FF&E replacements and capital
expenditures.
 
   For those hotels where Marriott International is the manager, it had a
noneconomic membership interest with certain limited voting rights in the
Tenant Subsidiaries.
 
 FF&E Leases
 
   Prior to entering into the hotel leases, if the average tax basis of a
hotel's FF&E and other personal property exceeded 15% of the aggregate average
tax basis of the hotel's real and personal property (the "Excess FF&E"), the
Tenant Subsidiaries and affiliates of Host Marriott entered into lease
agreements (the "FF&E Leases") for
 
                                      130

<PAGE>
 
                     CCHP IV CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued)
 
the Excess FF&E. The terms of the FF&E Leases generally ranged from two to
three years and rent under the FF&E Leases was a fixed amount.
 
 Guaranty and Pooling Agreement
 
   In connection with entering into the hotel leases, the Company, Crestline
and Host Marriott, entered into a pool guarantee and a pooling and security
agreement by which the Company provided a full guarantee and Crestline
provided a limited guarantee of all of the hotel lease obligations.
 
   The cumulative limit of Crestline's guarantee obligation was the greater of
ten percent of the aggregate rent payable for the immediately preceding fiscal
year under all of the Company's hotel leases or ten percent of the aggregate
rent payable under all of the Company's hotel leases for 1999. In the event
that Crestline's obligation under the pooling and guarantee agreement was
reduced to zero, the Company could terminate the agreement and Host Marriott
could terminate the Company's hotel leases without penalty.
 
   All of the Company's leases were cross-defaulted and the Company's
obligations under the guaranty were secured by all the funds received from its
Tenant Subsidiaries.
 
Note 3. Working Capital Notes
 
   Upon the commencement of the hotel leases, the Company purchased the
working capital of the leased hotels from Host Marriott for $16,522,000 with
the purchase price evidenced by notes that bear interest at 5.12%. Interest on
each note is due simultaneously with the rent payment of each hotel lease. The
principal amount of each note is due upon the termination of each hotel lease.
See Note 6 for a discussion of the repayment of all of the hotel working
capital notes in 2001. As of December 29, 2000, the outstanding balance of the
working capital notes was $16,522,000, which mature in 2008. Cash paid for
interest expense in 2000 and 1999 totaled $846,000 and $781,000, respectively.
 
Note 4. Management Agreements
 
   All of the Company's hotels are operated by hotel management companies
under long-term hotel management agreements between Host Marriott and hotel
management companies. The existing management agreements were assigned to the
Tenant Subsidiaries upon the execution of the hotel leases for the term of
each corresponding hotel lease. See Note 6 for a discussion of the transfer of
all of the management agreements to Host Marriott in 2001.
 
   The Tenant Subsidiaries were obligated to perform all of the obligations of
Host Marriott under the hotel management agreements including payment of fees
due under the management agreements other than certain obligations including
payment of property taxes, property casualty insurance and ground rent,
maintaining a reserve fund for FF&E replacements and capital expenditures for
which Host Marriott retained responsibility.
 
   Marriott International manages 23 of the 27 hotels under long-term
management agreements. The Company's remaining four hotels are managed by
other hotel management companies. The management agreements generally provide
for payment of base management fees equal to one to four percent of revenues
and incentive management fees generally equal to 20% to 50% of Operating
Profit (as defined in the management agreements) over a priority return (as
defined) to the Tenant Subsidiaries, with total incentive management fees not
to exceed 20% of cumulative Operating Profit, or 20% of current year Operating
Profit.

Note 5. Income Taxes
 
   The Company is included in the consolidated Federal income tax return of
Crestline and its affiliates (the "Group"). Tax expense is allocated to the
Company as a member of the Group based upon the relative contribution to the
Group's consolidated taxable income/loss and changes in temporary differences.
This allocation method results in Federal and net state tax expense allocated
for the period presented that is substantially equal to the expense that would
have been recognized if the Company had filed separate tax returns.

   As of December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999, the Company had no deferred
tax assets. The tax effect of the temporary differences that gives rise to the
Company's deferred tax liability is generally attributable to the hotel
working capital.
 
Note 6. Subsequent Event
 
   On December 17, 1999, the Work Incentives Improvement Act was passed which
contained certain tax provisions related to REITs commonly known as the REIT
Modernization Act ("RMA"). Under the RMA, beginning on January 1, 2001, REITs
could lease hotels to a "taxable subsidiary" if the hotel is operated and
managed on behalf of such subsidiary by an independent third party. This law
enabled Host Marriott, beginning January 2001, to lease its hotels to a
taxable subsidiary. Under the terms of the Company's full-service hotel
leases, Host Marriott, at its sole discretion, could purchase the full-service
hotel leases for a price equal to the fair market value of the Company's
leasehold interest in the leases based upon an agreed upon formula in the
leases.
 
   On November 13, 2000, Crestline, the Company and the Tenant Subsidiaries
entered into an agreement with a subsidiary of Host Marriott for the purchase
and sale of the Tenant Subsidiaries' leasehold interests in the full-service
hotels. The purchase and sale transaction would generally transfer ownership
of the Lessee Entities owned by the Company to a subsidiary of Host Marriott
for a total consideration of $46.1 million in cash. On January 10, 2001, upon
receipt of all required consents, the purchase and sale transaction was
completed for $46.1 million. The Company recognized a pre-tax gain on the
transaction of approximately $46 million in the first quarter of 2001, net of
the transaction costs. The effective date of the transaction was January 1,
2001.
 
   In connection with the sale of the Tenant Subsidiaries, all of the hotel
working capital notes were repaid on January 10, 2001.

Options may be granted to Employees in such number, and upon such terms, and at
any time and from time to time as shall be determined by the Committee. Options
may include provisions for reload of Options exercised by the tender of Shares
or the withholding of Shares with respect to the exercise of the Options.

     6.2 Award Agreement. . Each Option grant shall be evidenced by an Award
Agreement that shall specify the Option Price, the duration of the Option, the
number of Shares to which the Option pertains, and such other provisions as the
Committee shall determine. The Award Agreement shall also specify whether the
Option is intended to be an ISO within the meaning of Code Section 422 or an
NQSO whose grant is intended not to fall under the provisions of Code Section
422.

     6.3 Option Price. The Option Price for each grant of an Option (other than
an Option covered by a 1998 Conversion Award) under this Article VI shall be at
least equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the Fair Market Value of a Share on
the date the Option is granted.

     6.4 Duration of Options. Each Option granted under this Article VI shall
expire at such time as the Committee shall determine at the time of grant;
provided, however, that no Option shall be exercisable later than the fifteenth
(15Th) anniversary date of its grant.

     6.5 Exercise of Options. Options granted under this Article VI shall be
exercisable at such times and be subject to such restrictions and conditions as
the Committee shall in each instance approve, which need not be the same for
each grant or for each Employee.

     The ability of an Employee to exercise an Option is conditioned upon the
Employee not committing any criminal offense or malicious tort relating to or
against the Company.

     6.6 Payment. Options granted under this Article VI shall be exercised by
the delivery of a written notice of exercise to the Company, setting forth the
number of Shares with respect to which the Option is to be exercised,
accompanied by full payment for the Shares.

Company in full either (a) in cash or its equivalent, or (b) if permitted in the
governing Award Agreement, by tendering previously acquired Shares having an
aggregate Fair Market Value at the time of exercise equal to the total Option
Price (provided that the Shares which are tendered must have been held by the
Participant for at least six (6) months prior to their tender to satisfy the
Option Price), or (c) if permitted in the governing Award Agreement, by a
combination of (a) and (b).

requirements of any stock exchange or market upon which such Shares are then
listed or traded, and under any blue sky or state securities laws applicable to
such Shares.

     6.8 Termination of Employment or Leave of Absence. In the event that an
Employee, during the Employee's lifetime has been on leave of absence for a
period of greater than twelve (12) months (except a leave of absence approved by
the Board or the Committee, as the case may be), or ceases to be an Employee of
the Company or of any Subsidiary for any reason, including retirement, the
portion of any Option which is not exercisable on the date on which the Employee
ceased to be an Employee or has been on leave for over twelve (12) months
(except a leave of absence approved by the Board or the Committee, as the case
may be) shall expire on such date and any unexercised portion thereof which was
otherwise exercisable on such date shall expire unless exercised within a period
of three (3) months (one year in the case of a Participant who is Disabled) from
such date, but in no event after the expiration of the term for which the Option
was granted; provided, however, that in the case of an optionee of an NQSO who
is an "Approved Retiree" (as herein defined), said optionee may exercise such
Option until the sooner to occur of (i) the expiration of such Option in
accordance with its original term, or (ii) the expiration of five years from the
date of retirement. For purposes of the proviso to the preceding sentence:

     (a)  An "Approved Retiree" is any optionee who (A) retires from employment
          with the Company with the specific approval of the Committee on or
          after such date on which the optionee has completed 20 Years of
          Service or has attained age 55 and completed 10 Years of Service, and
          (B) has entered into and has not breached an agreement to refrain from
          Engaging in Competition in form and substance satisfactory to the
          Committee.

     (b)  Any time period during which an optionee may continue to exercise an
          Option within clause (ii) of said proviso shall count in determining
          compliance with any schedule established pursuant to Section 6.5
          herein; and

     (c)  If an Approved Retiree is subsequently found by the Committee to have
          violated the provisions of the agreement to refrain from Engaging in
          Competition referred to in clause (a)(B) of this sentence, such
          Approved Retiree shall have ninety (90) days from the date of such
          finding within which to exercise any Options or portions thereof which
          are exercisable on such date, any Options or portions thereof which
          are not exercised within such ninety-day (90-day) period shall expire
          and any Options or portion thereof which are not exercisable on such
          date shall be canceled on such date.

     In the event of the death of an optionee during the three-month period
described above for exercise of an Option by a terminated optionee or one on
leave for over twelve (12) months (except a leave of absence approved by the
Board or the Committee, as the case may be), the Option shall be exercisable by
the optionee's personal representatives, heirs or legatees to the same extent
and

                                     -12-

<PAGE>
 
during the same period that the optionee could have exercised the Option if the
optionee had not died.

     Notwithstanding anything in Section 6.5 to the contrary, in the event of
the death of an optionee while an Employee or Approved Retiree of the Company or
any Subsidiary, an outstanding Option held by such optionee upon death shall
become fully vested upon death and shall be exercisable by the optionee's
personal representatives, heirs or legatees at any time prior to the expiration
of one (1) years from the date of death of the optionee, but in no event after
the expiration of the term for which the Option was granted.

     6.9 Nontransferability of Options

         (a)  Incentive Stock Options. No ISO granted under the Plan may be
              sold, transferred, pledged, assigned, or otherwise alienated or
              hypothecated, other than by will or by the laws of descent and
              distribution. Further, all ISOs granted to a Participant under the
              Plan shall be exercisable during his or her lifetime only by such

              a Participant's Award Agreement, all NQSO's granted to a
              Participant under this Article VI shall be exercisable during his
              or her lifetime only by such Participant.

terms as the Committee establishes.

Committee deems appropriate. Without limiting the generality of the preceding
sentence, if the grant or vesting of Restricted Stock granted to a Covered
Employee is designed to comply with the requirements of the Performance-Based

               Shares if the Participant had not terminated employment, or over
               such shorter period as may be determined by the Committee.

                        PERFORMANCE MEASURES FOR AWARDS

     11.1 Performance Measures. Unless and until the Committee proposes for
shareholder vote and shareholders approve a change in the general performance
measures set forth in this Article XI, the attainment of which may determine the
degree of payout and/or vesting with respect to Awards which are designed to
qualify for the Performance-Based Exception, the performance measure(s) to be
used for purposes of such Awards shall be chosen by the Committee from among the
following alternatives:

          (a)  Consolidated cash flows,

          (b)   Consolidated financial reported earnings,

          (c)   Consolidated economic earnings,

          (d)   Earnings per share,

          (e)   Earnings as a percentage of average capital,

          (f)   Earnings as a multiple of interest expense,

          (g)  Business unit financial reported earnings,

          (h)  Business unit economic earnings,

          (i)  Business unit cash flows,

          (j)  Appreciation in the Fair Market Value of Shares either alone or
               as measured against the performance of the stocks of a group of
               companies approved by the Committee,

          (k)  Total capital invested in assets, and

          (l)  Capital invested in assets subject to the strategic alliance with
               Marriott International, Inc.


     11.2 Adjustments. The Committee shall have the discretion to adjust the
determinations of the degree of attainment of preestablished performance
objectives, provided, however, that Awards which are designed to qualify for the
Performance-Based Exception, and which are held by Covered Employees, may not be
adjusted upward (the Committee shall retain the discretion to adjust such Awards
downward.

     11.3 Committee Discretion. In the event that applicable tax and/or
securities laws change to permit Committee discretion to alter the governing
performance measures without obtaining shareholder approval of such changes, the
Committee shall have sole discretion to make such changes without obtaining
shareholder approval. In addition, in the event that the Committee determines
that it is advisable to grant Awards which do not qualify for the
Performance-Based Awards or to make modifications that would not satisfy the
requirements to qualify for the Performance-Based Exception, the Committee may
make such grants without satisfying the requirements of Section 162(m) of the
Code.

Host REIT Plan as provided in the Allocation Agreement. The Committee shall
administer all such 1998 Conversion Awards under the Host REIT Plan, giving

required under the Allocation Agreement. All 1998 Conversion Awards shall be

     Each Participant under the Plan may, from time to time, name any
beneficiary or beneficiaries (who may be named contingently or successively) to
whom any benefit under the Plan is to be paid in case of the Participant's death
before the Participant has received any or all of such benefit. Each such
designation shall revoke all prior designations by the same Participant, shall
be in a form prescribed by the Company, and will be effective only when filed by
the Participant in writing with the Company during the Participant's lifetime.
In the absence of any such designation, benefits remaining unpaid at the
Participant's death shall be paid to the Participant's estate.

Participant's receipt of the payment of cash or the delivery of Shares that
would otherwise be due to such Participant by virtue of an exercise of an
Option, or the payment of or the lapse or waiver of restrictions with respect to
any other Award. If any such deferral election is required or permitted, the

payment deferrals.

     15.1 Employment or Service. Nothing in this Plan shall interfere with or

                    AMENDMENT, MODIFICATION AND TERMINATION

     16.1 Amendment, Modification, and Termination. The Committee may terminate,
amend or modify the Plan. Termination, amendment or modification of the Plan may
be in response to changes in the Code, the Exchange Act or national securities
exchange regulations, or for other reasons deemed appropriate by the Committee.
However, without the requisite approval of the shareholders of the Company, no
such termination, amendment or modification may:

     (a)  Materially increase the total number of Shares which may be issued
          under this Plan, or the total number of Shares for which Options may
          be granted under this Plan, except as provided in Section 4.3 hereof;
          or

     (b)  Materially modify the requirements as to eligibility for participation
          in the Plan; or

     (c)  Extend the maximum period after the date of grant during which Options
          may be exercised; or

     (d)  Change the provisions of the Plan regarding Option Price or the
          exercise of Options, except as provided in Section 4.3 or Article VI
          hereof or modify the Plan in a manner inconsistent with Rule 16b-3
          under the Exchange Act, Sections 422-424 of the Code or Section 162(m)
          of the Code.

The termination or any modification or amendment of the Plan shall not, without
the consent of the Participant, affect a Participant's rights under an Award
previously granted to the Participant; provided, however, that in the event of a
transaction described in Section 4.3 hereof, the authority of the Committee (or,
if another legal entity assumes the obligations of the Company hereunder, of the
board of directors, compensation committee or similar body of such other legal
entity, as applicable) in taking the actions permitted or required by Section
4.3 hereof shall not be eliminated or diminished in any way by this sentence.
With the consent of the affected Participant, the Committee may amend an
outstanding Award agreement in a manner consistent with the Plan.

     16.2 Adjustment of Awards Upon the Occurrence of Certain Unusual or
Nonrecurring Events. Subject to the restriction set forth in Article XI herein
on the exercise of upward discretion with respect to Awards which have been
designed to comply with the Performance-Based Exception, the Committee may make
adjustments in the terms and conditions of, and the criteria included in, Awards
in recognition of unusual or nonrecurring events (including, without limitation,
the events described in Section 4.3 hereof) affecting the Company or the
financial statements of the Company or of changes in applicable laws,
regulations, or accounting principles, whenever the Committee determines that
such adjustments are appropriate in order to prevent dilution or enlargement of
the benefits or potential benefits intended to be made available under the Plan.

     16.3 Awards Previously Granted. No termination, amendment, or modification
of the Plan or any Award shall adversely affect in any material way any Award
previously granted under the Plan, without the written consent of the
Participant holding such Award.

                                     -28-

<PAGE>
 
     16.4 Compliance with Code Section 162(m). At all times when Code Section
162(m) is applicable, all Awards granted under this Plan shall comply with the
requirements of Code Section 162(m), provided, however, that in the event the
Committee determines that such compliance is not desired with respect to any
Award or Awards available for grant under the Plan, then compliance with Code
Section162(m) will not be required. In addition, in the event that changes are
made to Code Section 162(m) to permit greater flexibility with respect to any
Award or Awards available under the Plan, the Committee may, subject to this
Article XVI, make any adjustments it deems appropriate.

     16.5 Substitution of Awards in Mergers and Acquisitions. Awards may be
granted under the Plan from time to time in substitution for awards held by
employees or directors of entities who become or are about to become employees
or directors of the Company or a Subsidiary as a result of a merger,
consolidation or other acquisition of the employing entity or the acquisition by
the Company or a Subsidiary of the assets or stock of the employing entity. The
terms and conditions of any substitute awards so granted may vary from the terms
and conditions set forth herein to the extent that the Committee deems
appropriate at the time of grant to conform the substitute awards to the
provisions of the awards for which they are substituted.

                                  WITHHOLDING

     17.1 Tax Withholding. The Company shall have the power and the right to
deduct from any amount otherwise due to the Participant, or to withhold, or
require a Participant to remit to the Company, an amount sufficient to satisfy
Federal, state, and local taxes, domestic or foreign, required by law or
regulation to be withheld with respect to any taxable event arising as a result
of this Plan.

     17.2 Share Withholding. With respect to withholding required in connection
with any Award, the Company may require, or the Committee may permit a
Participant to elect, that the withholding requirement be satisfied, in whole or
in part, by having the Company withhold Shares having a Fair Market Value on the
date the tax is to be determined equal to the minimum statutory total tax which
could be withheld on the transaction. Any election by a Participant shall be
irrevocable, made in writing, signed by the Participant, and shall be subject to
any restrictions or limitations that the Committee, in its sole discretion,
deems appropriate.

reason of any action taken or failure to act under the Plan and against and from
any and all amounts paid by him or her in settlement thereof, with the approval
or Host Marriott Corporation, the Operating Partnership or any Subsidiary, or
paid by him or her in satisfaction of any judgment in any such action, suit or
proceeding against him or her, provided he or she shall give Host Marriott
Corporation, the Operating Partnership or any Subsidiary an opportunity, at its
own expense, to handle and defend the same before he or she undertakes to handle
and defend the same on his or her own behalf. The foregoing right of
indemnification shall not be exclusive of any other rights of indemnification to
which such Persons may be entitled under Host Marriott Corporation's Articles of
Amendment and Restatement of Articles of Incorporation, as a matter of law or
otherwise, or any power that Host Marriott Corporation, the Operating
Partnership or any Subsidiary may have to indemnify them or hold them harmless.

     All obligations of Host Marriott Corporation, the Operating Partnership or
any Subsidiary, respectively, under the Plan, with respect to Awards granted
hereunder, shall be binding on any successors to Host Marriott Corporation, the
Operating Partnership or any Subsidiary, respectively, whether the existence of
such successor is the result of a direct or indirect purchase, merger,
consolidation or otherwise, of all or substantially all of the business and/or
assets of Host Marriott Corporation, the Operating Partnership or any
Subsidiary, respectively.

remaining Renewal Terms.

                (c)     Landlord shall be entitled to terminate all unexercised
Tenant Renewal Options by providing Notice to Tenant thereof at any time during
the calendar month of March of the year immediately preceding a year in which a

efforts to negotiate and jointly determine the Fair Market Rental to be
effective during any Renewal

Term by no later than March 31st of the year immediately preceding such Renewal
Term. In the event Landlord and Tenant are unable to agree on the Fair Market
Rental for a Renewal Term prior to Tenant's exercise of its Tenant Renewal
Option, the Fair Market Rental shall be determined in accordance with the
appraisal procedures set forth in Article 19 by no later than August 1st of the
year immediately preceding the applicable Renewal Term.

                (e)     The components of Fair Market Rental, including Minimum
Rent and Revenue Percentages and Break Points, determined as set forth in
subparagraph (d), shall be set forth in revised Schedules 3.1.1 and 3.1.2, which
Schedules shall, upon commencement of the applicable Renewal Term, be attached
to the Lease and shall supersede such Schedules as were effective prior thereto.

                (f)     In order for Tenant to exercise the Tenant Renewal
Option, at the time Tenant exercises such option, Tenant must meet the criteria
for being an "Approved Tenant" as defined in the Consent and Assignment, and any
exercise in violation of this Section 2.4.2(f) shall be null and void and of no
force or effect, at law or equity.

        3.1     Rent.

                Tenant shall pay to Landlord, in lawful money of the United
States of America which shall be legal tender for the payment of public and
private debts, without offset, abatement, demand or deduction, Minimum Rent,
Percentage Rent and Additional Charges, during the Term, except as hereinafter

immediately available federal funds or by other means reasonably acceptable to
Landlord in its sole discretion.

                3.1.1   Payment of Rent.

                        On or before the second (2nd) Business Day after the
required payment date under the Management Agreement for amounts due from
Manager thereunder relating to each Accounting Period (whether or not such
payment under the Management Agreement is made on the required payment date),
Tenant shall pay to Landlord an amount of Rent equal to the excess, if any, of
(A) the greater of (i) the product of (x) the Minimum Rent for the current
Fiscal Year times (y) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of
elapsed Accounting Periods in such Fiscal Year (including the Accounting Period
with respect to which payment of Rent is being made) and the denominator of
which is 13 (or 12, if the Accounting Periods are then calendar months) or (ii)
the Revenues Computation for such Fiscal Year (determined in accordance with
Section 3.1.2), over (B) the aggregate amount of Rent previously paid pursuant
to this Section 3.1.1 during such Fiscal Year (less the aggregate amount
previously paid by Landlord to Tenant pursuant to the next sentence in this
Section 3.1.1 during such Fiscal Year). In the event that the amount specified
in clause (A) is less than the amount specified in clause (B) as of any payment
date, then Landlord will promptly pay to Tenant the difference in cash. In the
event of a change in the Accounting Period during the Term

                                      -28-

which results in payment dates (and/or number of payments) different from the
payment dates (and/or number of payments) provided for herein, the amount of
subsequent installments of Minimum Rent shall be appropriately adjusted in a
fair and equitable manner. In the absence of agreement between Landlord and
Tenant on the appropriate adjustments, the matter may be submitted by either
party to arbitration under Article 15 for resolution.

                                     3.1.6 thereof, and as escalated pursuant to
                                     Section 3.1.4 and/or 3.1.6 hereof.

                  3.1.3   Confirmation of Percentage Rent.

                          (a)     Tenant shall submit to Landlord on each rental
payment date pursuant to Section 3.1.1 a reasonably detailed schedule (the
"Percentage Rent Schedule"), signed and certified by Tenant to be correct,
showing the Revenues Computation with respect to the Facility for the preceding
Accounting Period and the calculation of the amount of Rent owed on such date
(other than Additional Charges) by Tenant or the amount Landlord is required to

Tenant's Percentage Rent Schedule shall clearly indicate how much of the Gross
Revenues is comprised by Room Revenues, Food and Beverages Sales and Other
Income, and shall contain such detail and breakdown as Landlord may reasonably
require. If, after notice from Landlord and the expiration of the cure period
provided for in Section 12.1(c) of this Lease, Tenant fails to submit the
Percentage Rent Schedule to Landlord when due, Landlord, in addition to any
other remedies Landlord has, shall have the right (subject to compliance with
the Management Agreement and the Consent and Assignment) to retain an
independent certified public accountant, at Tenant's sole expense, to prepare
such Percentage Rent Schedule and to perform all inspections and audits related
thereto.

                        (b)     Tenant shall maintain in accordance with the
usual and customary practices of Tenant and in accordance with GAAP during the
Term, for the current Fiscal Year and for the immediately preceding Fiscal Year,
(i) complete and accurate general books of account, which shall reflect Gross
Revenues and which shall include, without limitation, those items set forth and
described on Schedule 3.1.3(b) hereof, and (ii) all other original records and
             -----------------
other pertinent papers that will enable Landlord to determine the Gross Revenues
derived by Tenant during the relevant Fiscal Year from Room Revenues, Food and
Beverages Sales and Other Income. Such records for the current and most recent
Fiscal Year shall be maintained at Tenant's corporate headquarters. The
provisions of this Section 3.1.3(b) shall survive the expiration or earlier
termination of this Lease for a period of three (3) years thereafter, subject to
extension upon Notice from Landlord, provided that all storage and related
expenses of maintaining records beyond such three-year period shall be at
Landlord's sole cost and expense. In addition to the audit rights set forth in
Section 3.1.3(c) below, in the event Landlord, any Lending Institution, any
Facility Mortgagee, or any potential purchaser of the Leased Property, or any of
their respective representatives, desires to audit Tenant's financial records
described in clauses (i) and (ii) above, Tenant shall, at Landlord's sole cost
and expense, cooperate with such audit by making such records available at
Tenant's corporate headquarters during normal business hours upon reasonable
prior Notice.

                        (c)     Landlord shall have fifty (50) days after the
receipt of the Year End Percentage Rent Schedule to have an independent
certified public accountant examine Tenant's records, during regular business
hours upon reasonable prior Notice by Landlord, of Room Revenues, Food and
Beverages Sales, and/or Other Income for the related Fiscal Year and all other
relevant financial information. The acceptance by Landlord of each periodic
payment of Percentage Rent shall not prejudice Landlord's right to proceed with
such examination as described in the immediately preceding sentence. If Landlord
raises no objections within such fifty (50)-day period, the Year End Percentage
Rent Schedule shall be deemed to have been accepted by Landlord as true and
correct, and Landlord shall have no further right to question its accuracy.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Owner (as defined in the Management
Agreement) has less than sixty (60) days to review the annual operating
statement under the Management Agreement, the fifty (50) day period set forth
above shall be reduced to a number of days equal to (i) the number of days Owner
has to review the annual operating statement under the Management Agreement,
less (ii) five (5) days. If Landlord does raise such an objection, by Notice to
Tenant, Landlord shall arrange for an independent certified public accountant to
commence such examination within fifty (50) days after the date of such
objection and shall cause such audit to be completed no later than one hundred
eighty (180) days after Landlord's receipt 

                                      -31-

of the Year End Percentage Rent Schedule. Landlord shall pay all costs and
expenses of such audit; provided, however:

                (i)     if such audit discloses that the amount of Percentage
        Rent was underreported by Tenant by five percent (5%) or more for such
        Fiscal Year, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, within fifteen (15) days of
        its receipt of Notice from Landlord, the cost of the audit, as
        Additional Charges, in addition to any deficiency in Percentage Rent
        that may be due to Landlord; or

                (ii)    if the audit discloses that the amount of Percentage
        Rent either was not underreported or was underreported by Tenant by less
        than five percent (5%), Landlord shall be responsible for all costs
        associated with the audit and Tenant shall pay, within fifteen (15) days
        of its receipt of Notice from Landlord, any deficiency in Percentage
        Rent that may be due to Landlord; or

                (iii)   if the audit discloses that the Percentage Rent was
        overreported by Tenant for the related Fiscal Year, Landlord shall be
        responsible for all costs associated with the audit, shall give Tenant
        Notice of such overreporting within fifteen (15) days of Landlord's
        receipt of audit results, and shall reimburse the amount of such
        overpayment to Tenant in cash along with delivery of such Notice to
        Tenant.

                (iv)    The provisions of this Section 3.1.3(c) shall survive
        the expiration or the earlier termination of this Lease for a period of
        one (1) year thereafter.

        3.1.4   Annual Adjustments.

                Upon the commencement of each Fiscal Year during the Term
beginning with the second Fiscal Year, each of the Minimum Rent, the Annual Room
Revenues First Break Point, the Annual Food and Beverages Sales First Break
Point, the Annual Other Income Break Point, the Annual Food and Beverages Sales
Second Break Point and the Annual Room Revenues Second Break Point shall be
increased by the amount of the applicable Annual Adjustment.

                In no event shall the Minimum Rent, the Annual Room Revenues
First Break Point, Annual Food and Beverages Sales First Break Point, the Annual
Room Revenues Second Break Point, the Annual Food and Beverages Sales Second
Break Point, or the Annual Other Income Break Point be reduced as a result of
the Annual Adjustment. The Annual Adjustment described above shall be effective
on the first day of the new Fiscal Year. If Rent for the new Fiscal Year is paid
prior to the determination of the amount of the Annual Adjustment, whether
because of a delay in the publication of the Consumer Price Index or the Labor
Index applicable for the Measurement Date or because of any other reason,
payment adjustments for any shortfall in Rent paid shall be made with the first
Minimum Rent and Percentage Rent payments due after the Annual Adjustment is
determined.

both) of items used in determining the Consumer Price Index or the Labor Index
or (2) the Consumer Price Index or Labor Index shall be discontinued for any
reason, the Bureau of Labor Statistics shall be requested to furnish a new index
comparable to the Consumer Price Index or Labor Index, together with information
that will make possible a conversion to the new index in computing the Annual
Adjustment. If for any reason the Bureau of Labor Statistics does not furnish
such an index and information, the parties will instead mutually select, accept
and use such other indexes or comparable statistics on the cost of living and
cost of labor in various United States cities that is computed and published by
an agency of the United States or a responsible financial periodical of
recognized authority.

        3.1.5   Additional Charges.

                In addition to the Minimum Rent and Percentage Rent payable
hereunder, Tenant shall pay and discharge as and when due and payable the
following (collectively, "Additional Charges"):

                (a)     Impositions. Subject to Article 8 relating to Permitted
                        -----------
Contests and the right of any Facility Mortgagee to require tax escrows as
described in the last sentence of this paragraph of subsection (a), Tenant shall
pay or cause to be paid all Impositions attributable to any period during the
Term before any fine, penalty, interest or cost (other than any opportunity cost
as a result of a failure to take advantage of any discount for early payment)
may be added for nonpayment, such payments to be made directly to the taxing
authorities where feasible, and shall promptly, upon request, furnish to
Landlord copies of official receipts or other satisfactory proof evidencing such
payments. If any such Imposition may, at the option of the taxpayer, lawfully be
paid in installments (whether or not interest shall accrue on the unpaid balance
of such Imposition), Tenant may exercise the option to pay the same (and any
accrued interest on the unpaid balance of such Imposition) in installments and,
in such event, shall pay such installments during the Term as the same become
due and before any fine, penalty, premium, further interest or cost may be added
thereto. Landlord, at its expense, shall, to the extent required or permitted by
Legal Requirements, prepare and file all tax returns required to be filed by
Landlord, including, without limitation, returns in respect of Landlord's net
income, gross receipts, sales and use, single business, transaction, privilege,
rent, ad valorem, franchise taxes, Real Estate Taxes and other Landlord
Obligations, and taxes on its capital stock, and Tenant, at its expense, shall,
to the extent required or permitted by Legal Requirements, prepare and file all
tax returns and reports required to be filed by Tenant in respect of any
Imposition as may be required by any Government Agency. Provided no monetary
Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, if any refund
shall be due from any taxing authority in respect of any Imposition paid by
Tenant, the same shall be paid over to or retained by Tenant. Landlord and
Tenant shall each, upon request of the other, provide such data as is maintained
by the party to whom the request is made with respect to the Leased Property as
may be necessary to prepare any required returns and reports. In the event
Government Agencies classify any property covered by this Lease as personal
property, Tenant shall file all personal property tax returns in such
jurisdictions where it may legally be required to so file. Each party shall, to
the extent it possesses the same, provide the other, upon request, with cost and
depreciation records necessary for filing returns for any property so classified
as personal property. Where

                                      -33-

<PAGE>
 
Landlord is legally required to file personal property tax returns, Landlord
shall provide Tenant with copies of assessment notices in sufficient time for
Tenant to file a protest. All Impositions assessed against such personal
property that comprises FF&E shall be (irrespective of whether Landlord or
Tenant shall file the relevant return) paid by the party that owns the FF&E not
later than the last date on which the same may be made without interest or
penalty. All Impositions assessed against such personal property that comprises
Tenant's Personal Property shall be (irrespective of whether Landlord or Tenant
shall file the relevant return) paid by Tenant not later than the last date on
which the same may be made without interest or penalty. If the provisions of any
Facility Mortgage require deposits on account of Impositions to be made with the
Facility Mortgagee, provided the Facility Mortgagee has not elected to waive
such provision, Tenant shall either pay Landlord the monthly amounts required
with respect to any such Impositions at the time and place that payments of
Minimum Rent are required and Landlord shall transfer such amounts to the
Facility Mortgagee or, pursuant to written direction by Landlord, Tenant shall
make such deposits directly with the Facility Mortgagee, and such payment to
Landlord or Facility Mortgagee shall be deemed to satisfy Tenant's obligation
hereunder to pay the Impositions.

                Landlord shall give prompt Notice to Tenant of all Impositions
payable by Tenant hereunder of which Landlord at any time has knowledge;
provided, however, that Landlord's failure to give any such Notice shall in no
way diminish Tenant's obligation hereunder to pay such Impositions, except that
Landlord shall be responsible for any interest and/or penalties incurred by
Tenant as a result of Landlord's failure to forward any invoices, assessment
notices or other bills to Tenant and no Default or Event of Default shall be
deemed to have occurred hereunder if Tenant's failure to pay timely any
Impositions is due to Landlord's failure to give Tenant such Notice at least ten
(10) days before the amounts therein are due.

                Tenant shall give prompt Notice to Landlord of all taxes
included in Landlord Obligations payable by Landlord hereunder of which Tenant
at any time has knowledge; provided, however, that Tenant's failure to give any
such Notice shall in no way diminish Landlord's obligation hereunder to pay such
Landlord Obligations, except that Tenant shall be responsible for any interest
and/or penalties incurred by Landlord as a result of Tenant's failure to forward
any invoices, assessment notices or other bills to Landlord and no Landlord
Default shall be deemed to have occurred hereunder if Landlord's failure to pay
timely any taxes included in Landlord Obligations is due to Tenant's failure to
give Landlord such Notice at least ten (10) days before the amounts therein are
due.

                (b)     Utility Charges. Tenant shall pay or cause to be paid
                        ---------------
all charges for electricity, power, gas, oil, water and other utilities used in
connection with the Leased Property.

                (c)     Insurance Premiums. Except as otherwise provided in
                        ------------------
Section 9.2, Tenant shall pay or cause to be paid all premiums for the insurance
coverage required to be maintained by it pursuant to Article 9.

                                      -34-

<PAGE>
 
                (d)     Other Charges. Tenant shall pay or cause to be paid all
                        -------------
other amounts, liabilities and obligations that Tenant assumes or agrees to pay
under this Lease, including, without limitation, all agreements to indemnify
Landlord under Sections 4.3.3 and 9.8.

                (e)     [Intentionally Omitted.]

                (f)     Reimbursement for Additional Charges. If Tenant (as
                        ------------------------------------
opposed to Manager) pays or causes to be paid Additional Charges attributable to
periods before the Commencement Date, Tenant shall provide Notice to Landlord of
such amounts and, within fifteen (15) days thereafter, Landlord shall remit to
Tenant the amount of such Additional Charges paid. If Tenant pays or causes to
be paid Additional Charges attributable to periods after the end of the Term,
Tenant may, within sixty (60) days after the end of the Term, provide Notice to
Landlord of such amounts. Provided no uncured monetary Default or Event of
Default then exists, Landlord shall reimburse Tenant for all payments of such
Additional Charges that are attributable to any period after the expiration or
earlier termination of the Term of this Lease within fifteen (15) days after its
receipt of such Notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall only be
reimbursed to the extent such Additional Charges are not taken into account in
the calculation and settlement of Working Capital accounts as set forth in
Section 4.5. In the event Manager pays for Additional Charges attributable to
periods before the Commencement Date, Tenant shall receive a payment as set
forth in Section 3.1.6(g) below. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord within fifteen
(15) days after receipt of Notice (which shall be given within sixty (60) days
after the end of the Term) for any Additional Charges paid by Landlord
attributable to periods during the Term for which Tenant received a credit in
the settlement of Working Capital.

        3.1.6   Adjustments to/Abatements of Rent.

                (a)     FF&E Adjustment to Rent. Pursuant to the terms of
                        -----------------------
Schedule 22.2, Rent shall be reduced by the amount of the FF&E Adjustments then
-------------
in effect. In the event there is an FF&E Adjustment which commences on a day
other than the first day of an Accounting Period in which such FF&E Adjustment
occurs, Landlord shall reimburse Tenant in cash, within fifteen (15) days after
such FF&E Adjustment, an amount equal to the amount by which Rent paid for the
Accounting Period in which the FF&E Adjustment commenced exceeded the amount of
Rent (as reduced by the FF&E Adjustment) owed for such Accounting Period.
[Insert the following for Leases with an Initial FF&E Lease on the Commencement
Date.] [For the initial five years of the term of this Lease, there shall be an
FF&E Adjustment in effect of $_________ per Fiscal Year (which amount represents
the product of (i) the agreed upon value of $__________ for the Excess FF&E
covered by the Initial FF&E Lease, and (ii) an agreed upon Market Leasing Factor
for such Excess FF&E of [36%] per annum.]

                (b)     Adjustments of Rent Following Owner-Funded Capital
                        --------------------------------------------------
Expenditures Under Management Agreement. Except as otherwise provided in Section
---------------------------------------
3.1.6(c) or (e), effective on the date of any "Owner"-funded Capital
Expenditures (as the term "Owner" is defined in the Management Agreement) paid
by Landlord (other than Capital Expenditures paid out of the FF&E Reserve), the
Rent due for each Fiscal Year

                                      -35-

<PAGE>
 
thereafter in which Room Revenues for such Fiscal Year exceed the Annual Room
Revenues Second Break Point shall be increased by an amount equal to [2%] of the
amount of such contributions or expenditures.

                (c)     Adjustment of Rent for Major Capital Expenditures. In
                        -------------------------------------------------
the event of either a reduction or increase in Gross Revenues or an adverse or
beneficial impact on the Facility's operations, in either case resulting from
any Major Capital Expenditure, Landlord and Tenant shall, in good faith,
negotiate possible modifications to the Minimum Rent and Percentage Rent to
determine an appropriate temporary or permanent adjustment of Rent and the
effective date of such adjustment. If Landlord and Tenant are unable to agree
that a reduction or increase in Gross Revenues or an adverse or beneficial
impact on Facility operations, in either case resulting from any Major Capital
Expenditure, has occurred, within thirty (30) days after the date of Notice from
either party to the other that such event has occurred (accompanied by
reasonably detailed computations and documentation to support such assertion),
the matter may be submitted by either party to arbitration under Article 15 for
resolution and for determination of the amount of the adjustment to Minimum Rent
and Percentage Rent contemplated hereby. For purposes of any such arbitration,
the arbitrator shall assume that, except with respect to the proposed rent
adjustment relating to a Major Capital Expenditure, Landlord and Tenant regard
the then-existing economic relationship between them as being fair and equitable
and reflecting an arms-length transaction. Accordingly, the arbitrator shall not
use such proposed rent adjustment as a basis for modifying in any material way
the then-existing economic provisions and other material terms of the Lease,
other than in respect of such proposed rent adjustment. The rent adjustment
contemplated hereby shall reflect a fair market rent adjustment with respect to
the reduction or increase in Gross Revenues or an adverse or beneficial impact
on Facility operations, in either case resulting from any Major Capital
Expenditure. Tenant shall continue to pay Minimum Rent and Percentage Rent as
required under Sections 3.1.1 through 3.1.5 of this Lease until such time as any
adjustments to Percentage Rent and/or Minimum Rent are agreed upon or determined
as set forth above.

                (d)     Adjustment of Rent for Increases or Decreases in the
                        ----------------------------------------------------
FF&E Reserve Percentage. In the event that, in any Fiscal Year after Fiscal Year
-----------------------
1999, there is an increase or decrease, as the case may be, in the percentage of
Gross Revenues from the Leased Property required to be deposited by Landlord in
the FF&E Reserve (the "FF&E Reserve Percentage"), the Rent due for each Fiscal
Year thereafter in which Room Revenues for such Fiscal Year exceed the Annual
Room Revenues Second Break Point shall be increased (in the case of an increase
in the FF&E Reserve Percentage) by an amount equal to the product of (i) the
aggregate of the Room Revenues, the Food and Beverages Sales and the Other
Income for such Fiscal Year times (ii) [19]% times (iii) the percentage point
increase in the FF&E Reserve Percentage, or decreased (in the case of a decrease
in the FF&E Reserve Percentage) by an amount equal to the product of (i) the
aggregate of the Room Revenues, the Food and Beverages Sales and the Other
Income for such Fiscal Year times (ii) [21]% times (iii) the percentage point
decrease in the FF&E Reserve Percentage, in each case for the period during
which the adjusted FF&E Reserve Percentage remains in effect.

<PAGE>
 
                (e)     Adjustment of Rent for Landlord Funded Increase in FF&E
                        -------------------------------------------------------
Reserve. In the event that Landlord is required by Manager to fund an increase
-------
in the FF&E Reserve (other than by reason of an increase in the FF&E Reserve
Percentage), the Rent due for each of the five full Fiscal Years following the
Fiscal Year in which the funding of such increase occurred shall be increased,
for each Fiscal Year during such five (5)-year period that the Room Revenues for
such Fiscal Year exceed the Annual Room Revenues Second Break Point, by an
amount equal to [4.75]% of the dollar amount increase in the FF&E Reserve
resulting from such funding.

                (f)     Tenant Reimbursement for Landlord Obligations Paid by
                        -----------------------------------------------------
Manager or Tenant. Landlord shall reimburse Tenant in cash for the amount of any
-----------------
Landlord Obligations either (i) paid by Manager and deducted by Manager out of
amounts owed to Tenant in accordance with the Management Agreement or (ii) paid
by Tenant, such reimbursement to be paid within fifteen (15) days after
receiving Notice thereof, provided no uncured monetary Default or Event of
Default then exists.

        (g)     Tenant Reimbursement for Additional Charges Attributable to
                -----------------------------------------------------------
Periods prior to the Commencement Date and Paid by Manager. In the event Manager
----------------------------------------------------------
pays Additional Charges attributable to the period before the Commencement Date,
and deducts the same from "Gross Revenues" (as defined in the Management
Agreement) in accordance with the Management Agreement, and such Additional
Charges were not taken into account in the calculation and settlement of Working
Capital accounts as set forth in Section 4.5, such Additional Charges shall be
the responsibility of Landlord, and Landlord shall remit to Tenant in cash
within fifteen (15) days after receiving Notice thereof the amount of such
Additional Charges paid, provided no uncured monetary Default or Event of
Default then exists. In the event any item of Gross Revenues attributable to
periods prior to the Commencement Date is not properly reflected in the initial
calculation of Working Capital pursuant to Section 4.5, Tenant shall remit to
Landlord in cash within fifteen (15) days after receiving Notice thereof the
amount of such item not properly reflected.

        (h)     Abatement of Rent for Casualty. If and to the extent that any
                ------------------------------
Casualty results in a reduction of Gross Revenues as provided in Section 10.5,
then Rent shall be abated to the extent provided in Section 10.5.

        (i)     Abatement of Rent for Partial Condemnation. In the event of a
                ------------------------------------------
partial Condemnation as described in Section 11.2 which does not result in a
termination of this Lease by Landlord pursuant to Section 11.2, the Rent shall
be abated in the manner and to the extent provided in Section 11.3.

   3.2   Late Payment of Rent.

        If any installment of (i) Minimum Rent, (ii) Percentage Rent, or (iii)
Additional Charges (but only as to those Additional Charges that are payable
directly to Landlord) shall not be paid on its due date, Tenant shall pay
Landlord, on demand, as Additional Charges, a late charge (to the extent
permitted by law) computed at the Overdue Rate on the amount of such
installment, from the due date of such installment to the date of payment
thereof. To the extent that Tenant pays any Additional Charges 

                                      -37-

<PAGE>
 
directly to Landlord or the Facility Mortgagee pursuant to any requirement of
this Lease, Tenant shall be relieved of its obligation to pay such Additional
Charges to the Entity to which they would otherwise be due.

                In the event of any failure by Tenant to pay any Additional
Charges when due to any Entity other than Landlord, Tenant shall promptly pay
and discharge, as Additional Charges, every fine, penalty, interest and cost
that may be added by the Entity to which such Additional Charges are due (other
than Landlord) for nonpayment or late payment of such items (subject to
Landlord's obligation to pay or reimburse as provided in Section 3.1.5(a)).

        3.3     Net Lease.

                The Rent shall be absolutely net to Landlord so that this Lease
shall yield to Landlord the full amount of the installments or amounts of Rent
throughout the Term, subject to any other provisions of this Lease which
expressly provide for adjustment or abatement of such Rent or expressly provide
that certain Landlord Obligations and Capital Expenditures are to be paid and/or
performed by Landlord; provided, that no adjustment to Rent under this Section
shall have the effect of basing Rent, in whole or in part, on the income or
profits of any Person.

        3.4     No Termination, Abatement, Etc.

                Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Lease, Tenant,
to the maximum extent permitted by law, shall remain bound by this Lease in
accordance with its terms and shall neither take any action without the consent
of Landlord to modify, surrender or terminate this Lease, nor seek, nor be
entitled to, any abatement, deduction, deferment or reduction of the Rent, or
set-off against the Rent, nor shall the respective obligations of Landlord and
Tenant be otherwise affected by reason of (a) any damage to or destruction of
the Leased Property or any portion thereof from whatever cause or any
Condemnation; (b) the lawful or unlawful prohibition of, or restriction upon,
Tenant's use of the Leased Property, or any portion thereof, or the interference
with such use by any Person, except to the extent that a court of competent
jurisdiction has issued a final, nonappealable order determining that Tenant was
constructively evicted from the Leased Property; (c) any claim that Tenant may
have against Landlord by reason of any default or breach of any warranty by
Landlord under this Lease or any other agreement between Landlord and Tenant, or
to which Landlord and Tenant are parties (except for the Consent and
Assignment); (d) any bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, composition,
readjustment liquidation, dissolution, winding up or other proceedings affecting
Landlord or any assignee or transferee of Landlord; or (e) any other cause
whether similar or dissimilar to any of the foregoing, other than a discharge of
Tenant from any such obligations as a matter of law; provided, however, that the
foregoing shall not apply or be construed to restrict any other rights Tenant
may have as a result of any act or omission by Landlord constituting gross
negligence or willful misconduct. Tenant hereby waives all rights arising from
any occurrence whatsoever, which may now or hereafter be conferred upon it by
law, to (i) modify, surrender or terminate this Lease or quit or surrender the
Leased Property or any portion thereof, or (ii) entitle Tenant to any abatement,
reduction, suspension or deferment of the Rent or other sums payable or other
obligations to be 

                                      -38-

performed by Tenant hereunder, except as otherwise specifically provided in this
Lease and except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction has issued
a final, nonappealable order determining that Tenant was constructively evicted
from the Leased Property. The obligations of Tenant hereunder shall be separate
and independent covenants and agreements, and the Rent and all other sums
payable by Tenant hereunder shall continue to be payable in all events unless
the obligations to pay the same shall be terminated pursuant to the express
provisions of this Lease or this Lease shall be terminated. Notwithstanding
anything set forth in this Lease to the contrary, in any instance where, after
the occurrence of a Default or an Event of Default, this Lease expressly permits
Landlord to retain funds which, but for the Default or Event of Default, would
be payable to Tenant, Landlord shall refund such funds to Tenant to the extent
the amount exceeds the amount estimated by Landlord in good faith to be
necessary to compensate Landlord for any cost, loss, or damage incurred or
reasonably expected to be incurred in connection with such Default or Event of
Default.

                        Tenant shall, at all times during the Term and at any
other time that Tenant shall be in possession of any Leased Property,
continuously use the Leased Property for the operation of a first class,
full-service hotel and for such other uses as may be incidental or necessary
thereto (such use being hereinafter referred to as the Leased Property's
"Primary Intended Use"). Tenant covenants and agrees to use its best efforts to
operate the Facility according to First Class Operating Standards (which, during
any period when the Management Agreement is in effect, Tenant shall be deemed to
have done so long as Tenant uses its best efforts to cause the Manager to
operate the Facility in accordance with the terms of the Management Agreement)
and, except as otherwise expressly provided herein, agrees to pay all costs
related thereto. Tenant shall not use the Leased Property or any portion thereof
for any use inconsistent with the Primary Intended Use without the prior written
consent of Landlord. Tenant shall not take or omit to take any action, the
taking or omission of which materially impairs the value or the usefulness of
the Leased Property or any part thereof for its Primary Intended Use.

                4.1.2   Necessary Approvals.

                        Tenant shall proceed with all due diligence and exercise
best efforts to obtain and maintain (or to cause Manager to procure and
maintain) all Licenses necessary to use and operate, for its Primary Intended
Use, the Leased Property and Facility located thereon under Legal Requirements
and Landlord shall cooperate with respect to obtaining any such License,
including joining in any application for Licenses to the extent required by
Legal Requirements.

and shall use commercially reasonable efforts not to suffer to be committed, any
waste on the Leased Property, or in the Facility, nor shall Tenant cause or
permit any nuisance thereon or therein. Tenant shall not use, and shall use
commercially reasonable efforts to prohibit third parties from using, the Leased
Property or any portion thereof, including Tenant's Personal Property, in such a
manner as (i) might reasonably tend to impair Landlord's (or Tenant's, as the
case may be) title thereto or to any portion thereof or (ii) may reasonably make
possible a claim or claims for adverse usage or adverse possession by the
public, or of implied dedication of the Leased Property or any portion thereof.
Tenant shall not use, and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to prohibit
third parties from using, the Leased Property in any manner that will cause the
cancellation of any insurance policy covering the Leased Property or any part
thereof (unless another adequate policy is available), nor shall Tenant sell or
otherwise provide to guests or residents therein, and shall use commercially
reasonable efforts to prohibit third parties from keeping, using or selling in
or about the Leased Property, any article which may be prohibited by law or by

Article 8 hereof, and subject to compliance by Landlord with its obligations
hereunder, Tenant, at its sole expense, shall (i) comply in all material
respects with Legal Requirements and Insurance Requirements in respect of the
use, operation, maintenance, repair, alteration and restoration of the Leased
Property, including Legal Requirements regarding labor relations with respect to
Manager's employees as required pursuant to the Management Agreement, and (ii)
procure, maintain and comply in all material respects with all appropriate
licenses, permits, and other authorizations and agreements required for any use

transfer to or from the Leased Property any Hazardous Materials, except that
Tenant may store, transfer and dispose of Hazardous Materials in compliance with
all Environmental Laws. Tenant shall use commercially reasonable efforts to
cause Manager to maintain the Leased Property at all times free of any Hazardous
Materials (except such Hazardous Materials as are maintained in compliance with 
all Environmental Laws). Tenant shall promptly (a) notify Landlord in writing of
any material change in the nature or extent of Hazardous Materials 

                                      -40-

of any demand letters, complaints or other documents initiating legal action,
citations, orders, notices or other material communications asserting claims by
private parties or government agencies with respect to Hazardous Materials
received by Tenant or its agents or representatives (collectively,
"Environmental Notice"), which Environmental Notice requires a written response
or any action to be taken and/or if such Environmental Notice gives notice of
and/or could give rise to a material violation of any Environmental Law and/or
could give rise to any material cost, expense, loss or damage (an "Environmental
Obligation"), (d) use commercially reasonable efforts to cause Manager to
observe and comply with all Environmental Laws relating to the use, maintenance
and disposal of Hazardous Materials and all orders or directives from any
official, court or agency of competent jurisdiction relating to the use or
maintenance thereof or requiring the removal, treatment, containment or other
disposition thereof, and (e) subject to Section 4.3.2, pay or otherwise dispose
of any fine, charge or imposition related thereto, unless Tenant shall contest
the same in good faith and by appropriate proceedings and the right to use, and
the value of, the Leased Property is not adversely affected thereby in any
substantial manner.

                        If at any time Hazardous Materials are discovered in
violation of Environmental Laws on the Leased Property, subject to Section 4.3.2
Tenant shall exercise commercially reasonable efforts to cause Manager to take
all actions and incur any and all expenses (which actions and expenses shall be
subject to Landlord's prior approval, not to be unreasonably withheld,
conditioned or delayed except in Emergency Situations, in which case Landlord's
prior approval shall not be required) as may be necessary or as may be required
by any Government Agency (i) to clean up and remove from and about the Leased
Property all Hazardous Materials thereon, (ii) to contain and prevent any
further release or threat of release of Hazardous Materials on or about the
Leased Property and (iii) to use good faith efforts to eliminate any further

                        Landlord shall protect, indemnify and hold harmless
Tenant, its Affiliates and their respective members, shareholders or other
equity owners, directors, management committee, or similar persons, trustees,
officers, and employees and any of their respective successors or assigns
(hereafter the "Tenant Indemnitees," and when referred to singly, a "Tenant
Indemnitee") for, from and against any and all debts, liens, claims, causes of
action, administrative orders or notices, costs, fines, penalties or expenses
(including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses) imposed
upon, incurred by or asserted against any Tenant Indemnitee resulting from,
either directly or indirectly, the presence during the Term in the Environment
of the Leased Property or any properties surrounding the Leased Property of any
Hazardous Materials (collectively, "Environmental Liabilities"), except to the
extent that the same arise by reason of the negligence or willful misconduct of
Tenant, any other Tenant Indemnitee, or their respective agents (including
during the Term, the Manager). Landlord's duty herein includes, but is not
limited to, indemnification for costs associated with personal injury or

                                      -41-

<PAGE>
 
property damage claims as a result of the presence of Hazardous Materials in,
upon or under the soil or ground water of the Leased Property in violation of
any Environmental Law. Upon Notice from Tenant, Landlord shall undertake the
defense, at Landlord's sole cost and expense, of any indemnification duties set
forth herein, in which event Landlord shall not be responsible for any
duplicative attorneys' fees incurred by any Tenant Indemnitee.

                        Landlord shall, upon demand, pay to Tenant any cost,
expense, loss or damage (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys'
fees) incurred by Tenant in asserting any right under this Section 4.3.2,
including, without limitation, any right of indemnity under this Section 4.3.2
or otherwise arising from a failure of Landlord strictly to observe and perform
the foregoing requirements, which amounts shall bear interest from the date upon
which demand is made therefor until paid by Landlord to Tenant at the Overdue
Rate. Landlord agrees to waive any and all rights of contribution from Tenant
which might arise under applicable law for any liability imposed upon Landlord
pursuant to this Section 4.3.2.

                4.3.3   Environmental Indemnification of Landlord by Tenant.

                        Tenant shall protect, indemnify and hold harmless
Landlord and each Facility Mortgagee, their Affiliates and their respective
members, shareholders or other equity owners, directors, management committee,
or similar persons, trustees, officers, and employees, and any of their
respective successors or assigns (hereafter the "Landlord Indemnitees," and when
referred to singly, a "Landlord Indemnitee") for, from and against any and all
Environmental Liabilities to the extent that the same arise by reason of
Tenant's, any other Tenant Indemnitee's, or their respective agents' (including
the Manager's) gross negligence or willful misconduct. Upon Notice from
Landlord, Tenant shall undertake the defense, at Tenant's sole cost and expense,
of any indemnification duties set forth herein, in which event Tenant shall not
be responsible for payment of any duplicative attorneys' fees incurred by any
Landlord Indemnitee.

                        Tenant shall, upon demand, pay to Landlord, as an
Additional Charge, any cost, expense, loss or damage (including, without
limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred by Landlord in asserting any
right under this Section 4.3.3, including, without limitation, any right of
indemnity under this Section 4.3.3 or otherwise arising from a failure of Tenant
strictly to observe and perform the foregoing requirements, which amounts shall
bear interest from the date upon which demand is made therefor until paid by
Tenant to Landlord at the Overdue Rate. The foregoing notwithstanding, with
respect to Tenant's indemnification of Landlord for the acts or failure to act
of Manager, Tenant shall only become obligated to pay any sums upon and to the
extent of a final, non-appealable determination, in a judicial proceeding in
which Manager is a party (or a binding written acknowledgment of Manager to such
effect), that Manager is liable to Tenant for Environmental Liabilities in
accordance with the terms of the Management Agreement.

                4.3.4   Survival.

                        The provisions of this Section 4.3 shall survive the
expiration or sooner termination of this Lease.

        4.4     FF&E Reserve.

                Tenant shall cause Manager to establish and maintain a reserve
account (the "FF&E Reserve") in accordance with the terms of the Management
Agreement and to deposit into such account during each Fiscal Year monies for
the account of Landlord (which amounts shall be funds of Landlord for all
purposes and shall be reimbursed to Tenant in accordance with Section 3.1.6(f))
in the amount required to be maintained pursuant to the Management Agreement and
in accordance with established custom of Manager prior to the Commencement Date.
Landlord shall be responsible for the payment of all amounts required to be paid
by "Owner" (as defined in the Management Agreement) pursuant to the Management
Agreement to fund the FF&E Reserve, including, without limitation, any deficits
therein, and for paying for all FF&E necessary for the continued operation of
the Facility in accordance with First Class Operating Standards, subject to the
provisions of Schedule 22.2. Tenant shall make no expenditure for replacement of
              -------------
FF&E in excess of the amounts in the FF&E Reserve without first obtaining the
written approval of Landlord (unless Tenant makes such expenditures from its own
funds without any right to reimbursement hereunder). In the event Tenant funds
any amounts required to be funded by Landlord for FF&E pursuant hereto or by
"Owner" pursuant to the Management Agreement which Landlord has approved, Tenant
shall receive a reimbursement in accordance with Section 3.1.6(f) hereof. Any
additions to or replacements of furniture, fixtures, and equipment located at
the Leased Property shall become part of the FF&E which is owned by Landlord,
subject to the limitations set forth in Schedule 22.2 hereof. Throughout the
                                        -------------
Term of this Lease, Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense but subject to
the terms hereof and of the Management Agreement, cause all of the items of FF&E
to be in proper working order and in good condition (ordinary wear and tear
excepted).

        4.5     Working Capital.

                Landlord hereby conveys, transfers, assigns, sells and delivers
to Tenant, effective as of the Commencement Date, all Working Capital (as
defined below) existing on the Commencement Date (the "Initial Working Capital")
at a purchase price equal to the fair market value of such assets (which
Landlord and Tenant agree is equal to the book value of such assets on the
Commencement Date after taking into account any depreciation as of the
Commencement Date). The term "Working Capital" shall mean (a) funds held for use
in the day-to-day operation of the Facility's business, including, without
limitation, amounts held in change or petty cash funds, deposits, operating bank
accounts, pooled concentration or disbursement accounts and payroll accounts,
(b) prepaid expenses, (c) Inventories and Fixed Asset Supplies, (d) net
receivables due from Manager, less (e) accounts payable, accrued payroll
expenses and other accrued expenses and current liabilities related to the
Facility. Except as provided in the next sentence, title to the Initial Working
Capital so conveyed, transferred, assigned, sold and delivered by Landlord shall
be free and clear of any Liens of any nature whatsoever created by Landlord or
arising in respect of any obligation of Landlord or arising by reason of any act
or omission 

                                      -43-

<PAGE>
 
of Landlord. Tenant hereby purchases and accepts delivery of the Initial Working
Capital and accepts and assumes all obligations with respect thereto, effective
as of the Commencement Date, and expressly acknowledges and agrees that (i) it
is acquiring the Initial Working Capital subject to the Facility Mortgagee's
first-priority lien, if any, on some or all of such Initial Working Capital, and
shall acknowledge same in writing to the Facility Mortgagee and execute UCC-1
financing statements confirming same (at Landlord's expense) in accordance with
the Facility Mortgagee Agreement, which financing statements shall be prepared
and filed by Landlord at Landlord's sole cost and expense, and (ii) the Initial
Working Capital shall remain subject to the provisions of the Management
Agreement. The purchase price for the Initial Working Capital was paid by
Tenant's execution and delivery to Landlord, as of the Commencement Date, of a
Working Capital Note and Agreement in the form set forth on Exhibit E hereto
(the "Working Capital Note"), in the principal amount of said purchase price.
The Working Capital Note provides that such interest is payable from time to
time at such time as each payment of Rent is due under Section 3.1.1, and the
amount of interest paid under the Working Capital Note on any interest payment
date also shall be credited against Rent payable on such date. The Working
Capital Note further provides that the principal amount thereof will be payable
in full, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon, upon the expiration
or earlier termination of this Lease for any reason (including, without
limitation, a termination by the Facility Mortgagee in accordance with Section
20.2 hereof) as follows: Upon such expiration or termination, Tenant will
transfer to Landlord, in payment of the principal amount of the Working Capital
Note and accrued and unpaid interest thereon, title to all Working Capital then
owned by Tenant (the "Final Working Capital"). To the extent that the fair
market value of the Final Working Capital (which Landlord and Tenant agree shall
be equal to the book value of such assets at such time after taking into account
any depreciation as of such date) exceeds the principal amount of the Working
Capital Note plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon, Landlord shall pay to
Tenant an amount in cash equal to such excess; to the extent that such fair
market value is less than the principal amount of the Working Capital Note plus
accrued and unpaid interest thereon, Tenant shall pay to Landlord an amount in
cash equal to such deficiency.

                In the event that this Lease is terminated by the Facility
Mortgagee pursuant to the terms of Section 20.2 hereof, Tenant agrees that it
shall transfer title to the Final Working Capital (and pay in cash any
deficiency due to Landlord pursuant to the Working Capital Note) directly to the
Facility Mortgagee or its designee and that it shall look only to Host O.P. for
payment of the amount (if any) by which such payment exceeds the principal
amount of the Working Capital Note, all in accordance with the terms of the
Facility Mortgagee Agreement, and Host O.P. agrees to pay such amount.

                Landlord and Tenant agree that, following the sale of the
Initial Working Capital, all Working Capital during the Term of this Lease shall
be the property of Tenant (and not Landlord) for all purposes (subject, however,
to the Liens hereinafter referred to in this paragraph), and neither Landlord
nor Tenant shall at any time take a position (in its books and records or
otherwise) or make an assertion inconsistent therewith. Tenant has granted
Landlord a security interest in all such Working Capital pursuant to Section 7.2
hereof. Tenant acknowledges that Landlord has pledged and assigned to the
Facility Mortgagee, as additional security 

                                      -44-

<PAGE>
 
for Landlord's obligations under the loan secured by the Facility Mortgage, (or
will pledge and assign to a Facility Mortgagee, as additional security for
Landlord's obligations under a loan to be secured by a Facility Mortgage), the
Working Capital Note and Landlord's rights and interest in respect of this
Lease, including all Landlord Liens with respect to any and all Tenant's
Personal Property, including, without limitation, all Working Capital owned by
Tenant during the Term of this Lease, securing Tenant's obligations hereunder.

                       MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS; SURRENDER

        5.1     Maintenance and Repair.

                5.1.1   Tenant's Obligations.

                        Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Lease,
and except for conditions caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct
of Landlord, its employees, agents or independent contractors (which terms shall
not be deemed to include Manager with respect to actions or inactions of Manager
during the Term of this Lease), Tenant shall, at its sole cost and expense, keep
the Leased Property and all private roadways, sidewalks and curbs appurtenant
thereto (and Tenant's Personal Property) in good order and repair, ordinary wear
and tear excepted (whether or not the need for such repairs occurs as a result
of Tenant's use, any prior use, the elements or the age of the Leased Property
or Tenant's Personal Property, or any portion thereof), and shall promptly make
all necessary and appropriate repairs and replacements thereto of every kind and
nature (excluding Capital Expenditures), whether interior or exterior,
structural or nonstructural, ordinary or extraordinary, foreseen or unforeseen,
necessary for the Primary Intended Use (concealed or otherwise). Notwithstanding
anything set forth herein to the contrary, unless the need for compliance with
this Section 5.1.1 is caused by Tenant's negligence or willful misconduct or
that of its employees or agents (including Manager, but only to the extent that
Tenant is obligated to indemnify Landlord and Landlord Indemnitees for Manager's
acts or omissions pursuant to Section 4.3.3) and is not otherwise covered by
insurance, Tenant shall not be responsible for any necessary repair of Existing
Conditions relating to Hazardous Materials, including, without limitation, those
set forth and described on Schedule 5.1.1 hereto, which are Landlord
                           --------------
Obligations. All repairs shall be made in a good, workmanlike and first-class
manner, in accordance with all Legal Requirements. Tenant shall not take or omit
to take any action, the taking or omission of which materially impairs the value
or the usefulness of the Leased Property or any part thereof for the Primary
Intended Use. Tenant's obligations under this Section 5.1.1 shall be limited, in
the event of any Casualty or Condemnation involving the Leased Property, as set
forth in Articles 10 and 11. Tenant's obligations under this Section 5.1.1 with
respect to FF&E are subject to the provisions of Section 4.4 hereof. Tenant
shall have the non-exclusive right to prosecute claims against Landlord's
predecessors-in-interest (other than any Affiliates of Landlord), contractors,
subcontractors and suppliers for breach of any representation or warranty or for
any latent defects in the Leased Property, unless Landlord is already diligently
pursuing such claims.

                5.1.2   Landlord Obligations.

                        (a)     Landlord shall be obligated to pay the actual
costs of any items that are classified as Capital Expenditures and are approved
by Landlord as well as the actual costs of any necessary repairs (i) of Existing
Conditions relating to Hazardous Materials or (ii) resulting from the gross
negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord, its employees, agents or
independent contractors (which terms shall not be deemed to include Manager with
respect to acts or omissions of Manager during the Term of this Lease). Landlord
shall not, however, except as expressly set forth herein or otherwise required
under the Management Agreement or the Consent and Assignment (including, without
limitation, as set forth in this Section 5.1.2 and in Sections 4.3.2, 4.4,
5.1.1, 9.9 and 21.3.3 and in Article 6 hereof), be required to build or rebuild
any improvement on the Leased Property, or to make any repairs, replacements,
alterations, restorations, or renewals of any nature or description to the
Leased Property, whether ordinary or extraordinary, structural or nonstructural,
foreseen or unforeseen, or to make any expenditure whatsoever with respect
thereto, or to maintain the Leased Property in any way. Landlord shall have the
right to give, record and post, as appropriate, notices of nonresponsibility
under any mechanic's lien laws now or hereafter existing.

                        (b)     If, at any time or from time to time, the
Management Agreement requires that funds be disbursed for repairs, maintenance,
renovations or replacements at or to the Leased Property, or, pursuant to the
terms of this Lease (including, without limitation, Section 4.4 hereof), Tenant
is required to make any expenditures in connection with any repair, maintenance
or renovation with respect to the Leased Property which constitute Landlord
Obligations, and the amount of such disbursements or expenditures exceeds the
amount on deposit in the FF&E Reserve, Tenant shall furnish Landlord with
reasonable detail regarding the nature of the required repair, renovation or
replacement, the estimated cost thereof and such other information with respect
thereto as Landlord may reasonably require. Landlord shall, within ten (10)
Business Days after such Notice, subject to and in accordance with the
applicable provisions of Article 6, disburse such required funds to Tenant (or,
if Tenant shall so elect, or if an Event of Default shall then exist hereunder,
directly to Manager or any other Person performing the required work).

        5.2     Tenant's Personal Property.

                Tenant may (and shall as provided hereinbelow), at its expense,
install, affix or assemble or place on the Facility any items of Tenant's
Personal Property, and Tenant may, subject to Section 7.2 and the conditions set
forth below, remove and replace the same at any time in the ordinary course of
business. Tenant shall provide and maintain throughout the Term all such
Tenant's Personal Property as shall be necessary in order to operate the
Facility in compliance in all material respects with applicable Legal
Requirements and Insurance Requirements and otherwise in accordance with
customary practice in the industry for such Primary Intended Use.

                Subject to Section 4.5 hereof, all Tenant's Personal Property
(except that removed and replaced in the ordinary course of business as
permitted above, but including supplies and inventory that are equivalent, on an
aggregate basis, in amount and value

                                      -46-

<PAGE>
 
similar to that reasonably established for use by the Facility in the
immediately preceding Lease Year) shall remain at the Leased Property at the
expiration or earlier termination of this Lease without the necessity of any
payment by Landlord to Tenant and without any obligation to account therefor.

                If Tenant acquires an interest in any material item of Tenant's
Personal Property (other than motor vehicles) on, or in connection with, the
Leased Property that belongs to anyone other than Tenant, Tenant shall use its
commercially reasonable efforts to require the agreement permitting such use to
provide that Landlord or its designee may assume Tenant's rights under such
agreement upon management or operation of the applicable Facility by Landlord or
its designee.

        5.3     Surrender.

                (a)     Condition of Leased Property Upon Surrender. Upon the
                        -------------------------------------------
expiration or sooner termination of this Lease, Tenant shall vacate and
surrender the Leased Property to Landlord in the condition in which the Leased
Property was on the Commencement Date, ordinary wear and tear excepted, except
as repaired, rebuilt, restored, altered or added to as permitted or required by
the provisions of this Lease, ordinary wear and tear excepted. Together
therewith Tenant shall surrender to Landlord any and all records and documents
related to the Leased Property and Tenant's Personal Property (but not, subject
to Section 5.3(d) hereof, documents primarily related to Tenant's business
operated therein).

                (b)     [Intentionally Omitted.]

                (c)     Membership Contracts. Upon expiration or earlier
                        --------------------
termination of this Lease, Tenant shall assign to Landlord any membership
contracts relating to golf courses, spas or other facilities in which there are
nonequity interests entered into by Tenant during the Term, and Landlord agrees
to assume the obligations of Tenant under any such membership contracts arising
from and after the date of expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.

                (d)     Transition Procedures. Tenant shall cooperate in good
                        ---------------------
faith to provide access and information to any prospective purchaser or tenant
of the Leased Property that may acquire the Leased Property or lease it upon the
expiration or earlier termination of the Term, provided that Landlord shall use
its reasonable efforts to cause such prospective purchaser or tenant to enter
into a confidentiality agreement with respect thereto reasonably acceptable to
Tenant. Upon any expiration or earlier termination of the Term, Landlord and
Tenant shall do the following and, in general, shall cooperate in good faith to
effect an orderly transition of the management or lease of the Facility (and the
provisions of this Section 5.3(d) shall survive the expiration or earlier
termination of this Lease until they have been fully performed, up to a maximum
period of one (1) year after such expiration or termination, and nothing
contained herein shall limit Landlord's rights and remedies under this Lease if
such termination occurs as the result of an Event of Default):

                        (i)     Upon the expiration or earlier termination of
                the Term, Tenant shall use its commercially reasonable efforts
                (A) to transfer to Landlord or Landlord's designee all licenses,
                operating permits and other governmental authorizations and all
                contracts with governmental or quasi-governmental entities, that
                may be necessary for the operation of the Facility
                (collectively, "Licenses"), to the extent transferable or (B) if
                such transfer is prohibited by law or Landlord otherwise elects,
                to cooperate with Landlord or Landlord's designee in connection
                with the processing by Landlord or Landlord's designee of any
                applications for all Licenses; provided, in either case, that
                the costs and expenses of any such transfer or the processing of
                any such application shall be paid by Landlord or Landlord's
                designee.

                        (ii)    Tenant shall assign or cause to be assigned to
                Landlord or Landlord's designee simultaneously with the
                termination of this Lease, and the assignee shall assume, all
                leases, contracts, concession agreements and other agreements in
                effect with respect to the Facility then in Tenant's name;
                provided, however, that any leases of Excess FF&E shall be
                subject to the provisions of Schedule 22.2 hereof, and provided
                                             -------------
                further, that Landlord shall not be obligated to assume and may
                reject any such contracts or agreements requiring the "Owner's"
                approval under the Management Agreement which were entered into
                subsequent to the date hereof and were not previously approved
                or deemed approved by Landlord. In the event Landlord declines
                to assume or reject any such contracts, agreements and/or
                leases, the contracts, agreements and/or leases so rejected
                shall not be assigned or shall be deemed reassigned and shall
                remain the property and responsibility of Tenant. In no event
                shall Landlord (or its designee) have any liability under such
                contracts for obligations or liabilities accruing under such
                contracts after the Commencement Date and prior to the date of
                such assumption by such party.

                        (iii)   To the extent that Landlord has not already
                received copies thereof, copies of all books and records
                (including computer records) for the Facility kept by (or
                available to) Tenant shall be promptly delivered or made
                available for inspection and copying to Landlord or Landlord's
                designee.

                        (iv)    Subject to Section 4.5 hereof, Tenant shall be
                entitled to retain all cash, bank accounts and house banks, and
                to collect all Gross Revenues and accounts receivable accrued
                through the termination date of this Lease. Tenant shall be
                responsible for the payment of Rent, all operating expenses of
                the Facility as provided in this Lease and all other obligations
                of Tenant accrued under this Lease as of the termination date,
                and Landlord shall be responsible for all operating expenses of
                the Facility accruing after the termination date.

                        (v)     So long as termination is not the result of an
                Event of Default, Landlord shall reimburse Tenant for its
                reasonable expenses in connection with any cooperation with a
                prospective purchaser or tenant hereunder.

        5.4     Encroachments, Restrictions, Etc.

                If any portion of the Facility shall, at any time, encroach upon
any property, street or right-of-way adjacent to the Leased Property, or shall
violate the agreements or conditions contained in any lawful restrictive
covenant or other agreement affecting the Leased Property, or any part thereof,
or shall impair the rights of others under any easement or right-of-way to which
the Leased Property is subject, upon the request of Landlord (but only as to any
encroachment, violation or impairment that is not a Permitted Lien) or of any
Person affected by any such encroachment, violation or impairment, Tenant shall,
at Tenant's sole cost and expense (except to the extent that the encroachment,
violation or impairment existed prior to the Commencement Date or was the result
of the act or omission of Landlord or its employees, agents (excluding Manager
except for Manager's acts or omissions in respect of Landlord Obligations) or
independent contractors), subject to its right to contest the existence of any
encroachment, violation or impairment in accordance with the provisions of
Article 8, either (a) obtain valid and effective waivers or settlements of all
claims, liabilities and damages resulting from each such encroachment, violation
or impairment, whether the same shall affect Landlord or Tenant or (b), subject
to Section 6.1, make such changes in the Facility and take such other actions as
are reasonably practicable to remove such encroachment and to end such violation
or impairment, including, if necessary, the alteration of the Facility and, in
any event, take all such actions as may be necessary in order to enable the
continued operation of the Facility for its Primary Intended Use substantially
in the manner and to the extent the Facility was operated prior to the assertion
of such violation, impairment or encroachment. Any such alteration shall be made
in conformity with the applicable requirements of this Article 5. Tenant's
obligations under this Section 5.4 shall be in addition to and shall in no way
discharge or diminish any obligation of any insurer under any policy of title or
other insurance.

        5.5     Landlord to Grant Easements, Etc.

                Landlord shall from time to time, at the request of Tenant and
at Landlord's sole cost and expense, (a) grant easements and other rights in the
nature of easements with respect to the Leased Property to third parties, (b)
release existing easements or other rights in the nature of easements which are
for the benefit of the Leased Property, (c) dedicate or transfer unimproved
portions of the Leased Property for road, highway or other public purposes, (d)
execute petitions to have the Leased Property annexed to any municipal
corporation or utility district, (e) execute amendments to any covenants and
restrictions affecting the Leased Property and (f) execute and deliver to any
Person any instrument appropriate to confirm or effect such grants, release,
dedications, transfers, petitions and amendments (to the extent of its interests
in the Leased Property); provided, however, that Landlord shall have first
determined, in its reasonable discretion, that such grant, release, dedication,
transfer, petition or amendment is not detrimental to the operation of the
Leased Property for its Primary Intended Use and is beneficial to the value of
the Leased Property and is not in violation of the Management Agreement, any
Superior Lease or any Superior Mortgage, and Landlord shall have received within
five (5) Business Days of its request an Officer's Certificate confirming such
determination, together with such additional information as Landlord may
request. Landlord agrees to obtain Tenant's prior written approval, which shall
not be unreasonably withheld,

                                      -49-

conditioned or delayed, as to any recorded covenants, conditions and
restrictions which would affect the use or operation of the Leased Property as
it is then being used or operated by Tenant in accordance with this Lease (it
being agreed that the provisions of a Facility Mortgage or a ground lease shall
not be deemed to constitute covenants, conditions and restrictions subject to
this sentence).

                           CAPITAL EXPENDITURES, ETC.

        6.1     Capital Expenditures.

                It shall be Landlord's obligation (and a Retained Obligation) to
approve and fund the cost of any Capital Expenditures, including, without
limitation, any Capital Expenditures required under the Management Agreement, in
accordance with the terms of the Management Agreement. Except as otherwise
hereinafter provided, Tenant shall not construct or install Capital Expenditures
on the Leased Property without obtaining Landlord's prior written consent.
Landlord's approval of the Capital Portion of the Annual Budget shall constitute
approval of the Capital Expenditures described therein. If Owner's consent is
required under the Management Agreement with respect to any Capital Expenditure
not covered in the Capital Portion of the Annual Budget, prior to commencing
construction of any Capital Expenditure Tenant shall submit to Landlord, in
writing, a proposal setting forth, in reasonable detail, any proposed Capital
Expenditure and shall provide to Landlord such plans and specifications,
permits, licenses, contracts and other information concerning the proposed
Capital Expenditure as Landlord may reasonably request. Without limiting the
generality of the foregoing, such proposal shall indicate the approximate
projected cost of constructing such Capital Expenditure and the use or uses to
which it will be put. Tenant shall not fund or otherwise finance the cost of any
construction of any Capital Expenditure without the prior written consent of
Landlord, which consent may be withheld by Landlord in Landlord's sole
discretion (unless Landlord has declined to fund such Capital Expenditure,
Manager has consented to such Capital Expenditure and Tenant's financing of such
Capital Expenditure would not result in the imposition of a Lien on any portion
of the Leased Property or the Capital Expenditure, in which event Landlord shall
not unreasonably withhold its consent). Any Capital Expenditures funded or
financed by Tenant shall, upon the expiration or sooner termination of this
Lease, pass to and become the property of Landlord, free and clear of all
encumbrances other than Permitted Liens. Notwithstanding the foregoing,
Landlord's consent shall not be required in connection with any Capital
Expenditures (i) with respect to which immediate action is required in order to
comply with Legal Requirements or to prevent or remedy Emergency Situations or
(ii) not requiring the "Owner's" consent under the Management Agreement; it
being the intention hereof that the consent requirements hereunder shall be
consistent with the "Owner" consent requirements with respect to Capital
Expenditures under the Management Agreement.

        6.2     [Intentionally Omitted.]

        6.3     Cooperation by Tenant.

                If Landlord shall, in Landlord's sole discretion, elect to
finance any proposed Capital Expenditure, or if Landlord is otherwise required
to do so pursuant to the terms of the Management Agreement and the Retained
Obligations, Tenant shall provide Landlord with such information as Landlord may
from time to time reasonably request.

         6.4    Alterations.

                Subject to the provisions of the Management Agreement, Tenant
shall have the right, at Tenant's sole cost and expense, to make additions,
modifications or improvements to the Leased Property which are not Capital
Expenditures ("Alterations") and which have a total cost of completion of less
than or equal to (a) $10,000, as to any individual Alteration, or (b) $50,000,
as to all Alterations, in the aggregate, over a twelve-month period, from time
to time as Tenant, in its discretion, may deem desirable for the Primary
Intended Use, provided that any such Alteration will not materially alter the
character or purpose or materially detract from the value, operating efficiency
or revenue-producing capability of the Leased Property or adversely affect the
ability of Tenant to comply with the provisions of this Lease, and, without
limiting the foregoing, will not violate any Legal Requirement or Insurance
Requirement applicable to the Leased Property. Any Alteration estimated to
exceed the applicable limits set forth above shall be subject to Landlord's
prior approval and the terms set forth in Section 6.1. All such Alterations
shall, upon expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, pass to and become
the property of Landlord, free and clear of all liens and encumbrances, other
than Permitted Liens.

        6.5     Salvage.

                All materials which are scrapped or removed in connection with
the making of either Capital Expenditures, Alterations, or repairs required by
Article 5 shall be the property of the party that paid for such work.

                                    ARTICLE 7
                                      LIENS

        7.1     Prohibition on Liens.

                Tenant shall not, directly or indirectly, create or allow to
remain and shall promptly discharge, at its expense, any Lien on the Leased
Property, Tenant's leasehold interest therein, any Tenant's Personal Property
now or hereafter owned, any Excess FF&E owned by Tenant, any Excess FF&E
Leasehold Interest, Working Capital, or the Rent, other than (a) Permitted
Liens, (b) liens for Real Estate Taxes and other Landlord Obligations, (c)
subleases permitted by Article 16, (d) liens for Impositions or for sums arising
from the application of Legal Requirements so long as the same (i) are not yet
delinquent or (ii) are being contested in accordance with Article 8, (e) liens
of mechanics, laborers, materialmen, suppliers or vendors incurred in the
ordinary course of business 

                                      -51-

<PAGE>
 
that are not yet delinquent or are for sums that are being contested in
accordance with Article 8, (f) any Facility Mortgage or other liens which are
the responsibility of Landlord pursuant to the provisions of Article 20, (g)
liens first arising prior to the Commencement Date, and (h) Landlord Liens.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, but subject to all other applicable terms and
conditions of this Lease, including without limitation the provisions hereof
regarding a Change in Control, a pledge of the ownership interests in TRS or
Host O.P. to secure bona fide Indebtedness shall not be deemed a violation of
this Section 7.1, provided that a subsequent foreclosure or other realization
upon such pledge shall be subject to the Change in Control provisions of this
Lease.

                All materialmen, contractors, artisans, mechanics and laborers
and other persons contracting with Tenant with respect to the Leased Property,
or any part thereof, are hereby charged with notice that Liens are expressly
prohibited and that they must look solely to Tenant to secure payment for any
work done or material furnished for Alterations or Capital Expenditures by
Tenant or for any other purpose during the Term.

                Tenant hereby acknowledges and agrees that, at all times while a
Facility Mortgage is in effect, all Excess FF&E acquired by Tenant, directly or
indirectly, from Landlord or leased by Tenant in accordance with Schedule 22.2
                                                                 -------------
hereof shall be and remain subject to a first priority Lien in favor of the
Facility Mortgagee. Tenant further acknowledges that Landlord has assigned and
pledged (or may assign or pledge in the future) to the Facility Mortgagee, as
additional security for Landlord's obligations under the loan secured by the
Facility Mortgage, Landlord's rights and interests under the Landlord Liens with
respect to any and all Tenant's Personal Property, Working Capital and Excess
FF&E Leasehold Interest now owned or hereafter acquired by Tenant at any time
while the Facility Mortgage remains in effect.

        7.2     Landlord Lien.

                In addition to any statutory landlord's lien and in order to
secure (a) payment of the Rent and all other sums payable to Landlord hereunder
by Tenant, (b) payment of the amounts owed under the Working Capital Note, (c)
payment of any loss, cost or damage that Landlord may suffer by reason of
Tenant's breach of this Lease, and (d) the performance of all of Tenant's other
obligations hereunder and under the Working Capital Note, Tenant and Landlord,
simultaneously with the execution of the Original Lease, entered into a Security
Agreement (the "Security Agreement") whereby Tenant granted unto Landlord a
security interest in, and an express contractual lien upon, which grant Tenant
hereby reaffirms, as to (i) Tenant's Personal Property (other than Working
Capital), and all proceeds therefrom (subject to any Permitted Liens), (ii) any
Excess FF&E owned by Tenant, (iii) any Excess FF&E Leasehold Interest of Tenant,
and (iv) any Working Capital of Tenant (collectively, together with any
statutory lien rights, "Landlord Liens"). Tenant's Personal Property shall not
be removed from the Leased Property by Tenant at any time when a Default (with
respect to any monetary obligation of Tenant to Landlord hereunder and under the
Working Capital Note) or an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing
except as otherwise permitted pursuant to Section 5.2. In addition, Tenant
granted unto Landlord at the time of the Original Lease and hereby reaffirms its
grant of a security interest in those contracts described in Section 5.3(d)(ii)
hereof.

                Upon Landlord's request, Tenant shall execute and deliver to
Landlord financing statements in form sufficient to perfect the security
interest of Landlord in (subject to the Facility Mortgagee's first-priority Lien
thereon) (x) Tenant's Personal Property and the proceeds thereof, (y) the
contracts described in Section 5.3(d)(ii) hereof, in accordance with the
provisions of the applicable laws of the State, and (z) any and all Working
Capital, Excess FF&E and Excess FF&E Leasehold Interests, in each case owned by
Tenant from time to time during the Term of this Lease.

                                    ARTICLE 8
                               PERMITTED CONTESTS

                Tenant shall have the right to contest the amount or validity of
any Imposition, Legal Requirement, Insurance Requirement, Environmental
Obligation, lien, attachment, levy, encumbrance, charge or claim (collectively,
"Claims") as to the Leased Property, by appropriate legal proceedings, conducted
in good faith and with due diligence, provided that (a) the foregoing shall in
no way be construed as relieving, modifying or extending any obligation of
Tenant provided for in this Lease to pay any Claims as finally determined, (b)
such contest, or the maintenance of any Lien during such contest, shall not
cause Landlord or Tenant to be in default under any mortgage, deed of trust or
other agreement encumbering the Leased Property or any interest therein or
result in a Lien attaching to the Leased Property unless Tenant shall within ten
(10) days thereafter, have such Lien released of record or deliver to Landlord a
bond or other security reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, which shall be in
form, amount, and issued by a surety reasonably satisfactory to Landlord,
indemnifying Landlord against all costs and liabilities resulting from such Lien
and the foreclosure or attempted foreclosure thereof, (c) no part of the Leased
Property nor any Rent therefrom shall be in any immediate danger of sale,
forfeiture, attachment or loss, and (d) Tenant shall indemnify and hold harmless
Landlord from and against any cost, claim, damage, penalty or reasonable
expense, including reasonable attorneys' fees, incurred by Landlord in
connection therewith or as a result thereof. Tenant shall be entitled to any
refund of any Claims and such charges and penalties or interest thereon which
have been paid by Tenant or paid by Landlord and for which Landlord has been
fully reimbursed by Tenant. If Tenant shall fail (x) to pay any Claims when
finally determined, (y) to provide reasonable security therefor, or (z) to
prosecute any such contest diligently and in good faith, Landlord may, upon
reasonable notice to Tenant (which notice may be oral and shall not be required
if Landlord shall reasonably determine that the same is not practicable), pay
such charges, together with interest and penalties due with respect thereto, and
Tenant shall reimburse Landlord therefor, upon demand, as Additional Charges.
Landlord agrees to join in any such proceedings if required legally to prosecute
such contest, provided that Landlord shall not thereby be subjected to any
liability or cost therefor (including, without limitation, for the payment of
any costs or expenses in connection therewith).

be in possession of the Leased Property, the Leased Property shall be insured
against the risks and in the amounts described below. This insurance shall be
written by companies authorized to issue insurance in the State. The policies
must name the party obtaining the policy as the insured and the other party, the
Manager and any Facility Mortgagee(s) as additional named insureds and/or (in
the case of any Facility Mortgagees) as loss payees. Losses shall be payable to
Landlord or Tenant as provided in Article 10 of this Lease. Any loss adjustment
for coverages insuring both parties shall require the written consent of
Landlord and Tenant, each acting reasonably and in good faith. The policies on
the Leased Property (including the Facility, Fixtures and FF&E owned by
Landlord), and on Tenant's Personal Property, shall, subject to Section 9.1(k),
satisfy the requirements of any ground lease, mortgage, security agreement or
other financing lien affecting the Leased Property (provided, however, that any
insurance coverage maintained with respect to the Leased Property by Manager or
Landlord in accordance with the Management Agreement shall be deemed to satisfy
such requirements so long as the Management Agreement is in effect) and at a
minimum shall include:

or damage by fire, vandalism and malicious mischief, explosion of steamboilers,

limited to, sprinkler leakage, in an amount equal to one hundred percent (100%)

usual extended coverage endorsements, including a Replacement Cost Endorsement
and Builder's Risk Coverage during the continuance of any construction at the
Leased Property;

        (b)     Loss of rent insurance (on the "Special Form") in the minimum
amount of one (1) year of Minimum Rent and Percentage Rent (based on the last
twelve (12) months in which the Facility was operated for its Primary Intended
Use) for the benefit of Landlord, and business interruption insurance on the
"Special Form" in the amount of one year of projected net profit of Tenant from
the Facility (exclusive of collection costs and any operating expenses that are
considered by the applicable insurance company to be non-continuing as a result
of any Casualty), for the benefit of Tenant;

        (c)     Flood (if the Facility is located in whole or in part within an
area identified as an area having special flood hazards and in which flood
insurance has been made available under the National Flood Insurance Act of
1968, as amended, or the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, as amended (or
any successor acts thereto)) and such other hazards and in such amounts as may
be customary for comparable properties in the area, said coverage to be in an
amount equal to the lesser of the full Replacement Cost of the Facility or the
maximum amount available;

($2,000,000) aggregate per location, provided that such limits shall be modified
to conform to any required underlying statutory coverage, and Umbrella coverage

per occurrence and in the aggregate, and attaching in excess of policy limits as
to general liability, where applicable, and employer's liability coverage,
covering each of the following: bodily injury, death, or property damage

completed operations, and "all risk legal liability" (including liquor law or
"dram shop" liability, if liquor or alcoholic beverages are served on the Leased
Property) with respect to Landlord and Tenant;

                (e)     To the extent applicable at the Facility, comprehensive
form automobile liability insurance for owned, non-owned and hired vehicles in
the amount of $1,000,000;

                (f)     Fidelity bonds or blanket crime policies with limits and

increased amounts of insurance hereinabove required) as may be reasonably
required, from time to time, by Landlord, any Facility Mortgagee or any rating
agency, or any existing or future ground lessor, provided that any incremental
cost incurred as a result of such additional coverage shall be borne by
Landlord.

        9.2     Responsibility for Insurance.

                Tenant shall obtain or cause to be obtained the insurance and
pay the premiums for the coverages described in Sections 9.1(d) through (j) and
for that portion of the premium for the coverage described in Section 9.1(b)
that is attributable to business interruption insurance, and Landlord shall
obtain the insurance and pay the premiums for the coverages described in
Sections 9.1(a) through (c) and (k) (excluding that portion of the premium for
the coverage described in Section 9.1(b) that is attributable to business
interruption insurance that is for the benefit of Tenant). The party responsible
for the premium for any insurance coverage shall also be responsible for any and
all deductibles and self-insured retentions in connection with such coverages.
In the event that either party can obtain comparable insurance coverage required
to be carried by the other party from comparable insurers and at a cost
significantly less than that at which such other party can obtain such coverage,
the parties shall cooperate in good faith to obtain such coverage at the lower
cost and shall allocate the premiums therefor in accordance with the provisions
of the first sentence of this Section 9.2.

                Notwithstanding anything in this Article 9 to the contrary, so
long as the Management Agreement is in full force and effect and Manager is
maintaining the insurance required thereunder, Landlord's and Tenant's
obligations to maintain the insurance required under this Article 9 shall be
deemed to have been met (provided, that the costs therefor shall be allocated
between Landlord and Tenant in the manner contemplated by the first sentence of
this Section 9.2).

        9.3     Replacement Cost.

                "Replacement Cost" as used herein, shall mean the actual
replacement cost of the Leased Property requiring replacement from time to time,
including an increased cost of construction endorsement, if available, and the
cost of debris removal less exclusions provided in the standard form of fire
insurance policy. In the event either party believes that the then full
Replacement Cost has increased or decreased at any time during the Term, such
party, at its own cost, shall have the right to have such full Replacement Cost
redetermined by an independent accredited appraiser approved by the other, which
approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. The party desiring to
have the full Replacement Cost so redetermined shall forthwith, on receipt of
such determination by such appraiser, give written notice thereof to the other.
The determination of such appraiser shall be final and binding on the parties
hereto, and Landlord shall forthwith conform the amount of the insurance carried
to the amount so determined by the appraiser.

        9.4     Waiver of Subrogation.

                Landlord and Tenant agree that (insofar as and to the extent
that such agreement may be effective without invalidating or making it
impossible to secure insurance coverage from responsible insurance companies
doing business in the State) with respect to any loss covered by insurance then
being carried by Landlord or Tenant, respectively, the party carrying such
insurance and suffering said loss releases the other of and from any and all
claims with respect to such loss; and they further agree that their 

                                      -56-

<PAGE>
 
respective insurance companies shall have no right of subrogation against the
other on account thereof, even though extra premium may result therefrom.

        9.5     Form Satisfactory, Etc.

                Subject to the second paragraph of Section 9.2, all insurance
policies and endorsements required pursuant to this Article 9 shall be fully
paid for, nonassessable and, except for umbrella and flood coverage, shall
contain such provisions and expiration dates and be in such form and amounts and
issued by insurance carriers authorized to do business in the State, having a
general policy holder's rating of A/VI in Best's latest rating guide (or such
other higher rating or such other customarily used rating agency as may be
required by the Facility Mortgagee, provided that any additional expense
associated with such higher ratings shall be borne by Landlord), and otherwise
satisfactory to Landlord and Tenant. Without limiting the foregoing, such
policies shall include only deductibles reasonably approved by Landlord. The
party responsible for obtaining any policy shall deliver policies or
certificates thereof to the other party prior to their effective date (and, with
respect to any renewal policy, thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the
existing policy), and, in the event either party shall fail to effect such
insurance as herein required, to pay the premiums therefor or to deliver such
policies or certificates to the other party or the Facility Mortgagee at the
times required, the other party shall have the right, but not the obligation,
after ten (10) days' written notice to the responsible party, to acquire such
insurance and pay the premiums therefor, which amounts shall be reimbursed by
the responsible party, together with interest accrued thereon at the Overdue
Rate from the date such payment is made until the date repaid. All such policies
shall provide the non-responsible party (and the Facility Mortgagee and Manager,
if required by the same) thirty (30) days' prior written notice of any material
modification, expiration or cancellation of such policy.

        9.6     Blanket Policy.

                Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this
Article 9, Tenant's and Landlord's obligations to maintain the insurance herein
required may be brought within the coverage of a so-called blanket policy or
policies of insurance, provided that, except as otherwise approved by the other
party in writing, (a) the coverage thereby afforded will not be reduced or
diminished from that which would exist under a separate policy meeting all other
requirements of this Lease, and (b) the requirements of this Article 9
(including an appropriate allocation of the costs for such blanket policy
between Landlord and Tenant in a manner consistent with the first sentence of
Section 9.2) are otherwise satisfied.

        9.7     No Separate Insurance.

                Neither Landlord nor Tenant shall take out separate insurance
concurrent in form or contributing in the event of loss with that required by
this Article 9, or increase the amount of any existing insurance by securing an
additional policy or additional policies, unless all parties having an insurable
interest in the subject matter of such insurance are included therein as
additional insureds and the loss is payable under such insurance in the same
manner as losses are payable under the insurance required to be carried pursuant
to

                                      -57-

<PAGE>
 
this Lease. In the event either shall take out any such separate insurance or
increase any of the amounts of the then existing insurance, it shall give the
other party prompt Notice thereof.

        9.8     General Indemnification of Landlord by Tenant.

                Except as otherwise provided in Sections 4.3.2, 5.1, 9.9, 14.1
and 21.3.3, and except for liabilities, obligations, claims, damages, penalties,
causes of action, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys'
fees) arising from Landlord's or any other Landlord Indemnitee's or their
respective agents' (including Manager, but only with respect to Manager's acts
or omissions with respect to Landlord Obligations) willful misconduct or gross
negligence, Tenant shall protect, indemnify and hold harmless Landlord and each
Landlord Indemnitee for, from and against all liabilities, obligations, claims,
damages, penalties, causes of action, costs and reasonable expenses (including,
without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees), to the maximum extent permitted
by law, and notwithstanding the existence of any insurance provided for herein,
but subject to Section 9.4 hereof, and without regard to the policy limits of
any such insurance, imposed upon or incurred by or asserted against Landlord or
any Landlord Indemnitee by reason of:

                (i)     liabilities arising after the Commencement Date and
during the Term under any leases, contracts, concession agreements or other
agreements either (A) entered into by Tenant or any Tenant Indemnitee, or their
respective agents (including Manager, except with respect to Manager's acts or
omissions with respect to Landlord Obligations), with respect to the Facility,
or (B) assigned to Tenant pursuant to Section 2.2(a) (except liabilities arising
out of agreements described in this clause (B) for any employee claims by
employees of Manager for wrongful termination, discrimination or sexual
harassment,

                (ii)    the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant or
any other Tenant Indemnitee, or their respective agents (including Manager,
except with respect to Manager's acts or omissions with respect to Landlord
Obligations), including any such gross negligence or willful misconduct giving
rise to any employee claims by employees of Manager for wrongful termination,
discrimination or sexual harassment,

                (iii)   any accident, injury to or death of persons or loss of
or damage to property occurring on or about the Leased Property or adjoining
sidewalks or rights of way on or after the Commencement Date and during the
Term, including, without limitation, any claims under liquor liability, "dram
shop" or similar laws,

                (iv)    any litigation, proceeding (other than Condemnation
proceedings) or claim by governmental entities or other third parties to which
Landlord or any Landlord Indemnitee is made a party or participant or which is
otherwise asserted against Landlord or any Landlord Indemnitee, relating to the
Leased Property or Tenant's Personal Property or any use, misuse, non-use,
condition, management, maintenance, or repair thereof, the occurrence giving
rise to which litigation, proceeding or claim occurs on or after the
Commencement Date and during the Term,

                (v)     any Impositions that are the obligations of Tenant to
pay pursuant to the applicable provisions of this Lease, and

                                      -58-

                (vi)    any failure on the part of Tenant or anyone claiming
under Tenant to perform or comply with any of the terms of this Lease.

                Tenant shall pay all amounts payable under this Section 9.8
within ten (10) days after demand therefor and, if not timely paid, such amounts
shall bear interest at the Overdue Rate from the date of determination to the
date of payment. Tenant, at its expense, shall contest, resist and defend any
such claim, action or proceeding asserted or instituted against Landlord and
shall not be responsible for any duplicate attorneys' fees incurred by Landlord
or may compromise or otherwise dispose of the same, with Landlord's prior
written consent (which consent may not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). In
the event Landlord shall unreasonably withhold or delay its consent, Tenant
shall not be liable pursuant to this Section 9.8 for any incremental increase in
costs or expenses resulting therefrom. The obligations of Tenant under this
Section 9.8 are in addition to the obligations set forth in Section 4.3.3 and
21.3.3 and shall survive the termination or expiration of this Lease.

                Nothing in this Section 9.8 is intended to limit Tenant's right
to assert a claim or defense against Landlord based upon the obligations imposed
upon Landlord pursuant to Sections 4.3, 5.1, 9.9, 14.1 and 21.3.3.

        9.9     General Indemnification of Tenant by Landlord.

                Except for liabilities arising from Tenant's or any other Tenant
Indemnitee's, or their respective agents' (including Manager, except with
respect to Manager's acts or omissions with respect to Landlord Obligations)
willful misconduct or gross negligence, Landlord shall protect, indemnify and
hold harmless Tenant and each Tenant Indemnitee for, from and against all
liabilities, obligations, claims, damages, penalties, causes of action, costs
and reasonable expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys'
fees), to the maximum extent permitted by law, and notwithstanding the existence
of any insurance provided for herein, but subject to Section 9.4 hereof, and
without regard to the policy limits of any such insurance, imposed upon or
incurred by or asserted against Tenant or any Tenant Indemnitee by reason of:

                (i)     liabilities arising at any time under any leases,
contracts, concession agreements or other agreements with respect to the
Facility, except liabilities arising after the Commencement Date and during the
Term under any leases, contracts, concession agreements or other agreements
either (a) entered into during the Term by Tenant or any other Tenant
Indemnitee, or their respective agents (including Manager, except with respect
to Manager's acts or omissions with respect to Landlord Obligations) with
respect to the Facility, or (b) assigned to Tenant pursuant to Section 2.2(a),

                (ii)    the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord
or any other Landlord Indemnitee, or their respective agents (including Manager,
but only with respect to Manager's acts or omissions with respect to Landlord
Obligations),

                (iii)   any accident, injury to or death of persons or loss of
or damage to property occurring on or about the Leased Property or adjoining
sidewalks or rights of way

                                      -59-

<PAGE>
 
prior to the Commencement Date or after expiration or earlier termination of the
Term, including, without limitation any claims under liquor liability, "dram
shop" or similar laws,

                (iv)    any litigation, proceeding (other than Condemnation
proceedings) or claim by governmental entities or other third parties to which
Tenant or any Tenant Indemnitee is made a party or participant or which is
otherwise asserted against Tenant or any Tenant Indemnitee, relating to the
Leased Property or any use, misuse, non-use, condition, management, maintenance,
or repair thereof, the occurrence giving rise to which litigation, proceeding or
claim occurs prior to the Commencement Date or after the expiration or earlier
termination of the Term,

                (v)     any Landlord Obligations, and

                (vi)    any failure on the part of Landlord or anyone claiming
under Landlord (including Manager, but only with respect to Manager's acts or
omissions with respect to Landlord Obligations) to perform or comply with any of
the terms of this Lease.

                Landlord shall pay all amounts payable under this Section 9.9
within ten (10) days after demand therefor and, if not timely paid, such amounts
shall bear interest at the Overdue Rate from the date of determination to the
date of payment. Landlord, at its expense, shall contest, resist and defend any
such claim, action or proceeding asserted or instituted against Tenant and shall
not be responsible for any duplicate attorneys' fees incurred by Tenant, or may
compromise or otherwise dispose of the same with Tenant's prior written consent
(which consent may not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). In the event Tenant
shall unreasonably withhold or delay its consent, Landlord shall not be liable
pursuant to this Section 9.9 for any incremental increase in costs or expenses
resulting therefrom. The obligations of Landlord under this Section 9.9 are in
addition to the obligations set forth in Section 4.3.2 and 21.3.3 and shall
survive the termination of this Lease.

                Nothing in this Section 9.9 is intended to limit Landlord's
right to assert a claim or defense against Tenant based upon the obligations
imposed upon Tenant pursuant to Sections 4.3, 5.1, 9.8 and 21.3.3.

        9.10    Independent Contractor.

                Except as otherwise approved by Landlord in writing, Tenant
shall cause any person or company entering upon the Leased Property to provide
any installation, construction or repair (each a "Contractor"), which (x)
constitutes a Capital Expenditure or (y) has an anticipated cost in excess of
$100,000 to (a) have in full force and effect Contractor's Liability Coverage
(hereafter defined) effective throughout the period said Contractor is upon the
Leased Property and for one year thereafter and (b) deliver within five (5)
Business Days of Landlord's request a certificate ("Contractor's Insurance
Certificate") evidencing compliance with subpart (a) to Tenant prior to the
Contractor's first entry upon the Leased Property. As used herein, the term
"Contractor's Liability Coverage" means a comprehensive general liability
insurance policy meeting the requirements of this Article 9 (as if required to
be provided by Tenant) except the minimum policy limit shall be $1,000,000 per
occurrence and $3,000,000 in the aggregate.

                                      -60-

Within thirty (30) days after delivery of Landlord's written request, Tenant
shall deliver copies of all Contractor's Insurance Certificates to Landlord.

                                    CASUALTY

        10.1    Insurance Proceeds.

                All proceeds of the insurance contemplated by Section 9.1(a)-(c)
payable by reason of any loss, damage or destruction to the Leased Property, or
any portion thereof ("Casualty"), and insured under any policy of property or
casualty insurance required by Article 9 (other than proceeds of business
interruption insurance and any insurance proceeds paid with respect to Tenant's
Personal Property, which shall be paid to Tenant) shall be paid directly to
Landlord, and paid out by Landlord from time to time for the reasonable costs of
reconstruction or repair of the Leased Property necessitated by such Casualty,
if and to the extent required by the provisions of Section 10.2; provided,
however, that so long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be
continuing, all such proceeds less than or equal to $1,000,000 shall be paid
directly to Tenant and applied to the reasonable costs of restoration and repair
of the Leased Property necessitated by such Casualty, and such losses may be
adjusted without Landlord's consent. Any excess proceeds of insurance remaining
after the completion of the restoration shall be paid to Landlord. All salvage
resulting from any risk covered by insurance shall belong to Landlord, except
for any amount thereof paid with respect to Tenant's Personal Property. If
Landlord is not required and elects not to repair and restore as permitted under
this Lease, and this Lease is terminated pursuant to Section 10.2, all such
insurance proceeds shall be retained by Landlord, except for any amount thereof
paid with respect to Tenant's Personal Property and any amount attributable to
business interruption insurance.

        10.2    Reconstruction in the Event of Casualty.

                10.2.1  Facility Rendered Unsuitable for Its Primary Intended
                        Use.

                        If during the Term the Leased Property is totally or
partially destroyed by a Casualty and the Facility is thereby rendered
Unsuitable for Its Primary Intended Use, as reasonably determined by Landlord,
this Lease shall terminate as of the date of the Casualty and neither Landlord
nor Tenant shall have any further liability hereunder except for any liabilities
which have arisen or occurred prior to such termination, and those which
expressly survive termination of this Lease, and Landlord shall be entitled to
retain all Casualty insurance proceeds (except for any amount thereof paid with
respect to Tenant's Personal Property and any amount attributable to business
interruption insurance).

                10.2.2  Facility Not Rendered Unsuitable for Its Primary
                        Intended Use.

                        If during the Term the Leased Property is totally or
partially destroyed by a Casualty, but the Facility is not thereby rendered
Unsuitable for Its Primary Intended Use, as reasonably determined by Landlord,
Landlord or, at Landlord's election, Tenant shall, subject to Section 10.2.3,
promptly restore the Facility as provided

                                      -61-

<PAGE>
 
in Section 10.2.4. Except as provided in Section 10.2.3, such damage or
destruction shall not terminate this Lease.

                10.2.3  Deficiency in Insurance Proceeds.

                        If the cost of the repair or restoration exceeds the
amount of proceeds received by Landlord from the insurance required under
Article 9 and Tenant is obligated to restore pursuant to Section 10.2.2 hereof,
Landlord agrees, subject to this Section 10.2.3, to contribute any excess
amounts needed to restore the Facility prior to requiring Tenant to commence
such work. Such difference shall be made available by Landlord, together with
any insurance proceeds, for application to the cost of repair and restoration in
accordance with the provisions of Section 10.2.4. In the event the sum of (a)
the insurance proceeds released to Landlord, and (b) that portion of the
deductible, if any, which is greater than five percent (5%) of the cost of the
repair, is equal to at least ninety-five percent (95%) of the cost of the repair
or restoration, Landlord shall fund the deficiency. In the event the sum of (y)
the insurance proceeds, and (z) that portion of the deductible, if any, which is
greater than five percent (5%) of the cost of the repair, is less than
ninety-five percent (95%) of the cost of the repair or restoration, Landlord
shall fund such deficiency in its sole discretion; provided, however, that in
the event Landlord does not agree to make such deficiency available for
restoration, either Landlord or Tenant may terminate this Lease by written
notice to the other, whereupon this Lease shall terminate as provided in Section
10.2.1 and Landlord shall pay to Tenant a termination fee equal to Tenant's
Operating Profit for the immediately preceding Fiscal Year.

                10.2.4  Disbursement of Proceeds.

                        In the event Tenant is required to restore the Leased
Property pursuant to Section 10.2.2, Tenant shall (or shall direct Manager to)
commence promptly and continue diligently to perform the repair and restoration
of the Leased Property, so as to restore the Leased Property in compliance with
all Legal Requirements to substantially the same condition, to the extent
reasonably practicable, as existed immediately before the damage or destruction
and otherwise in accordance with this Lease. Landlord shall advance the
insurance proceeds and, subject to the terms hereof, any additional amounts
payable by Landlord pursuant to Section 10.2.3 to Tenant regularly during the
repair and restoration period so as to permit payment for the cost of any such
restoration and repair. Any such advances shall be made not more frequently than
monthly within ten (10) Business Days after Tenant submits to Landlord a written
requisition and substantiation therefor on AIA Forms G702 and G703 (or on such
other form or forms as may be reasonably acceptable to Landlord). Landlord may,
at its option, condition advancement of said insurance proceeds and other
amounts on (i) the absence of any uncured Event of Default, (ii) its approval of
plans and specifications of an architect reasonably satisfactory to Landlord
(which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), (iii) general
contractor's estimates, (iv) architect's certificates, (v) unconditional lien
waivers of general contractors (if available), (vi) evidence of approval by all
governmental authorities and other regulatory bodies whose approval is required,
and (vii) such other certificates as Landlord may, from time to time, reasonably
require.

<PAGE>
 
                        Landlord's obligation to disburse insurance proceeds
under this Article 10 shall be subject to the release of such proceeds by any
Facility Mortgagee to Landlord, and Tenant's obligation to restore the Leased
Property pursuant to this Article 10 shall be subject to the release of
available insurance proceeds by any Facility Mortgagee to Landlord or directly
to Tenant or Manager and, in the event such proceeds are insufficient, Landlord
electing to make such deficiency available therefor (and disbursement of such
deficiency); provided, however, that Landlord and Tenant shall each have the
same termination rights in the event of any Facility Mortgagee's failure or
refusal to disburse insurance proceeds as they have with respect to Landlord's
failure to disburse any deficiency in insurance proceeds, as provided in Section
10.2.3.

        10.3    Reconstruction in the Event of Damage or Destruction Not Covered
by Insurance.

                If during the Term the Facility is totally or materially damaged
or destroyed by a risk not covered by the insurance described in Article 9, or
if the proceeds of such insurance are not available to Landlord for restoration
of the Facility, whether or not in either event such damage or destruction
renders the Facility Unsuitable for Its Primary Intended Use, Landlord at its
option shall either, (a) direct Tenant to restore the Facility at Landlord's
sole cost and expense to substantially the same condition it was in immediately
before such damage or destruction, in which case such damage or destruction
shall not terminate this Lease, or (b) terminate this Lease and neither Landlord
nor Tenant shall have any further liability thereunder, except for any
liabilities which have arisen or occurred prior to such termination and those
which expressly survive termination of this Lease.

        10.4    Tenant's Property and Business Interruption Insurance.

                All insurance proceeds payable by reason of any loss of or
damage to any of Tenant's Personal Property and the business interruption
insurance maintained for the benefit of Tenant shall be paid to Tenant.

        10.5    Abatement of Rent.

                Any damage or destruction due to Casualty notwithstanding, this
Lease shall remain in full force and effect (except as otherwise expressly
provided in this Article 10) and Tenant's obligation to pay Rent required by
this Lease shall remain unabated by any Casualty which does not result in a
reduction of Gross Revenues. If and to the extent that any Casualty results in a
reduction of Gross Revenues (including proceeds of any business interruption
insurance actually received by Tenant or that would have been received by Tenant
if Tenant were in full compliance with the insurance requirements of Article 9)
which would otherwise be realizable from the operation of the Facility, then
Landlord shall receive all loss of rental income insurance and Tenant shall have
no obligation to pay Rent with respect to any Accounting Period during the
continuation of such Casualty in excess of the greater of (i) one-thirteenth (or
one-twelfth, if Accounting Periods are then the same as calendar months) of the
aggregate amount of Rent (excluding Additional Charges) paid to Landlord with
respect to the last full Fiscal Year prior to such Casualty or (ii) the amount
of Rent calculated with respect to such Accounting Period under Section 3.1.1
without

                                      -63-

<PAGE>
 
regard to clause (A)(i) of such Section (which relates to Minimum Rent);
provided, however, that if such damage or destruction was caused by Tenant's
gross negligence or willful misconduct, Tenant shall remain liable for the
amount of Rent which would have been payable hereunder at a rate equal to the
average Rent during the last three (3) preceding Lease Years (or if three (3)
Lease Years shall not have elapsed, the average during the preceding Lease
Years), as if such Casualty had not occurred.

                                   ARTICLE 11
                                  CONDEMNATION

        11.1    Total Condemnation, Etc.

                If either (i) the whole of the Leased Property shall be taken by
Condemnation or (ii) a Condemnation of less than the whole of the Leased
Property renders the Leased Property Unsuitable for Its Primary Intended Use, as
reasonably determined by Landlord, this Lease shall terminate as of the day of
the Condemnation, and Tenant and Landlord shall seek the Award for their
respective interests in the Leased Property as provided in Section 11.4.

        11.2    Partial Condemnation.

                In the event of a Condemnation of less than the whole of the
Leased Property such that the Leased Property is still suitable for its Primary
Intended Use, as reasonably determined by Landlord, Tenant shall, to the extent
that the Award and additional amounts disbursed by Landlord are sufficient
therefor, commence promptly and continue diligently to restore the untaken
portion of the Facility so that the Facility shall constitute a complete
architectural unit of the same general character and condition (as nearly as may
be possible under the circumstances) as the Facility existing immediately prior
to such Condemnation, in full compliance with all Legal Requirements. Subject to
the terms hereof, Landlord shall contribute to the cost of restoration that part
of the Award necessary to complete such repair or restoration, together with
severance and other damages awarded for the taken portion of the Facility
(provided, however, that the amount of such contribution shall not exceed such
cost), and such amounts shall be advanced to Tenant regularly during the
restoration period so as to permit payment for the cost of such repair or
restoration. Landlord may, at its option, condition advancement of such Award
and other amounts on (i) the absence of any continuing Event of Default, (ii)
its approval of plans and specifications of an architect reasonably satisfactory
to Landlord (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed),
(iii) general contractors' estimates, (iv) architect's certificates, (v)
unconditional lien waivers of general contractors (if available), (vi) evidence
of approval by all governmental authorities and other regulatory bodies whose
approval is required and (vii) such other certificates as Landlord may, from
time to time, reasonably require. Landlord's obligation under this Section 11.2
to disburse the Award and such other amounts shall be subject to (x) the
collection of the Award by Landlord and (y) the satisfaction of any applicable
requirements of the Facility Mortgage, and the release of such Award by the
Facility Mortgagee. Tenant's obligation to restore the Leased Property shall be
subject to the release of the Award and any additional funds to be disbursed by
Landlord pursuant hereto required for restoration. Subject to Section 21.3.3, if
Landlord has received the Award, but elects not to make the Award available to
Tenant

                                      -64-

<PAGE>
 
for restoration, then Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease and
Landlord shall pay to Tenant a termination fee equal to the amount of Tenant's
Operating Profit for the immediately preceding Fiscal Year. Subject to Section
21.3.3, if Landlord has not received the Award, or the Award is insufficient to
restore the untaken portion of the Facility as provided above, then Landlord, in
its sole discretion, shall have the right to terminate this Lease and neither
Landlord nor Tenant shall have any further liability hereunder, except for any
liabilities which have arisen or occurred prior to such termination and those
which expressly survive termination of this Lease, and Landlord shall be
entitled to retain the entire Award; provided that Tenant shall be permitted to
seek a separate award for the value of Tenant's Personal Property that was taken
in such Condemnation.

        11.3    Abatement of Rent.

                In the event of a partial Condemnation as described in Section
11.2 which does not result in a termination of this Lease by Landlord, the Rent
shall be abated in the manner and to the extent that is fair, just, and
equitable to both Tenant and Landlord, taking into consideration, among other
relevant factors, the number of usable rooms, the amount of square footage, or
the effect upon revenues of such partial Condemnation. If Landlord and Tenant
are unable to agree upon the amount of such abatement within thirty (30) days
after such partial Condemnation, the matter shall be submitted to appraisal as
provided for in Article 19 hereof.

        11.4    Allocation of Award.

                Except as provided in the second sentence of this Section 11.4,
the total Award shall be solely the property of and payable to Landlord. Any
portion of the Award made for the taking of Tenant's leasehold interest in the
Leased Property (valued without regard to any right of termination in Landlord
that otherwise exists under this Article 11), loss of business during the
remainder of the Term (determined without regard to any provision for
termination that might otherwise arise under this Article 11), the taking of
Tenant's Personal Property or Tenant's removal and relocation expenses shall be
the sole property of and payable to Tenant (subject to the provisions of Section
11.2). Subject to the rights of the Manager under the Management Agreement and
the rights of any Facility Mortgagee under a Facility Mortgage, in any
Condemnation proceedings, Landlord and Tenant shall each seek its own Award in
conformity herewith, at its own expense.

                            TENANT DEFAULTS; REMEDIES

        12.1    Event of Default.

                The occurrence of any one or more of the following events shall
constitute an "Event of Default" hereunder:

                (a)     Tenant fails (i) to make any payment of the Minimum Rent
or Percentage Rent payable hereunder when due and such failure continues for a
period of ten (10) days after the date due, or (ii) subject to the right to
contest same pursuant to Article 8

                                      -65-

<PAGE>
 
hereof, to make any required payments of Additional Charges within ten (10) days
following Notice from Landlord that such payment is due and owing and unpaid.

                (b)     Tenant fails to maintain the insurance coverages that it
is required to maintain under Article 9.

                (c)     Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, Tenant
defaults in the due observance or performance of any of the terms, covenants or
agreements contained herein to be performed or observed by it (other than as
specified in clauses (a) and (b) above), and, in either case, such default
continues for a period of thirty (30) days after Notice thereof from Landlord to
Tenant; provided, however, that if such default is curable but such cure cannot
be accomplished with due diligence within such period of time and if, in
addition, Tenant commences to cure such default within thirty (30) days after
Notice thereof from Landlord and thereafter prosecutes the curing of such
default with all due diligence, such period of time shall be extended to such
period of time (not to exceed one hundred twenty (120) days in the aggregate,
subject to Unavoidable Delay) as may be necessary to cure such default, provided
further that the cure rights shall not apply to any breach of a Tenant covenant
under Section 22.1, 22.3, 22.4, or 22.5.

                (d)     Any obligation of Tenant in respect of any Indebtedness
(other than Tenant's obligations under any Excess FF&E Lease that constitutes
Indebtedness) in a principal amount in excess of ($1,000,000) for money borrowed
or for the deferred purchase price of any material property or services, is
declared to be, or as a result of acceleration becomes, due and payable prior to
the stated maturity thereof.

                (e)     There occurs a final unappealable determination by
applicable federal or State authorities of the revocation or limitation of any
material license (including, but not limited to, any gaming license), permit,
certification, or approval required for the material lawful operation of the
Facility in accordance with its Primary Intended Use or the loss or limitation
of any material license (including but not limited to any gaming license),
permit, certification, or approval under any other circumstances under which
Tenant is required to cease its operation of the Facility in accordance with its
Primary Intended Use at the time of such loss or limitation, which revocation,
limitation or loss is not caused by actions of Landlord or its Affiliates or
which is not beyond the reasonable control of Tenant.

                (f)     Tenant is generally not paying its debts as they become
due, or Tenant makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors.

                (g)     Any petition is filed by or against Tenant under the
Federal bankruptcy laws, or any other proceeding is instituted by or against
Tenant seeking to adjudicate it a bankrupt or insolvent, or seeking liquidation,
reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition of it or its debts under
any law relating to bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization or relief of
debtors, or seeking the entry of an order for relief or the appointment of a
receiver, trustee, custodian or other similar official for Tenant or for any
substantial part of the property of Tenant, and, in the case of any involuntary
petition filed or proceeding instituted against Tenant only, such proceeding is
not

                                      -66-

dismissed within sixty (60) days after institution thereof, or Tenant takes any
action to authorize or effect any of the actions set forth above in this
paragraph.

                (h)     Tenant causes or institutes any proceeding for its
dissolution or termination.

                (i)     Tenant ceases operation of the Leased Property for its
Primary Intended Use for a period in excess of thirty (30) consecutive days,
except as a result of a Casualty, other Emergency Situations, the matters set
forth in Section 23.17 or partial or complete Condemnation of or to the Facility
or of or to the immediate surroundings so as to prohibit reasonable access by
patrons to the Facility.

                (j)     The estate or interest of Tenant in the Leased Property
or any part thereof is levied upon or attached in any proceeding and the same is
not vacated or discharged within the later of (i) one hundred and twenty (120)
days after commencement thereof, unless the amount in dispute is less than
$250,000, in which case Tenant shall give Notice to Landlord of the dispute but
Tenant may defend in any suitable way and (ii) thirty (30) days after receipt by
Tenant of Notice thereof from Landlord (unless Tenant shall be contesting such
lien or attachment in good faith in accordance with Article 8).

                (k)     Any Change in Control occurs.

                (l)     Tenant or TRS defaults under the terms of any of the
Related Agreements beyond the expiration of any applicable notice and cure
periods.

                (m)     [Intentionally Omitted.]

                (n)     [Intentionally Omitted.]

                In any such event, Landlord, in addition to all other remedies
available to it, may terminate this Lease by giving Notice thereof to Tenant,
and upon the expiration of the time, if any, fixed in such Notice, this Lease
shall terminate and all rights of Tenant under this Lease shall cease. Subject
to Section 23.11, Landlord shall have, and may exercise in its sole and absolute
discretion, all, or none of the, rights and remedies available at law and in
equity to Landlord as a result of Tenant's breach of this Lease; provided,
however, that notwithstanding anything set forth herein to the contrary, (A)
Landlord's sole remedy for an Event of Default under Section 12.1(k) shall be to
terminate this Lease, and (B) Landlord's actual damages in the event of a breach
by Tenant of any of its obligations pursuant to Article 22 and a resulting loss
of REIT status by Host REIT shall include, without limitation, amounts equal to
income taxes paid by Host REIT and (without duplication) loss of value of Host
REIT, both to the extent attributable to the loss of REIT status; provided that
any termination as a result of an Event of Default under Section 12.1(k) shall
occur no later than 450 days after the applicable Change in Control (or such
shorter period as may be expressly provided in the Management Agreement or
Consent and Assignment) and upon not less than 30 days' Notice to Tenant. If
Landlord terminates this Lease because of an Event of Default under Section
12.1(k) above, and the Change in Control does not involve an Adverse Party, then

                                      -67-

<PAGE>
 
Landlord shall pay to Tenant a termination fee equal to Tenant's Operating
Profit for the immediately preceding Fiscal Year.

                Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Landlord may, in
addition to any other remedies provided herein, enter upon the Leased Property
and take possession thereof, and either (i) retain any and all of Tenant's
Personal Property on the Leased Property, without liability for trespass or
conversion (Tenant hereby waiving any right to Notice or hearing prior to such
taking of possession by Landlord) or (ii) sell the same at public or private
sale, after giving Tenant reasonable Notice of the time and place of any public
or private sale, at which sale Tenant or its assigns may purchase all or any
portion of Tenant's Personal Property. Unless otherwise provided by law and
without intending to exclude any other manner of giving Tenant reasonable
notice, the requirement of reasonable Notice shall be met if such Notice is
given at least ten (10) Business Days before the date of sale. The proceeds from
any such disposition, less all expenses incurred in connection with the taking
of possession, holding and selling of such property (including reasonable
attorneys' fees) shall belong to Landlord and shall be applied as a credit
against the indebtedness which is secured by the security interest granted in
Section 7.2. Any surplus shall be paid to Tenant or as otherwise required by
law, and Tenant shall pay any deficiency to Landlord, as Additional Charges,
upon demand.

                The foregoing provisions hereof notwithstanding, Landlord shall
have no right to assert any remedy hereunder in respect of an Event of Default,
and an Event of Default shall be deemed to no longer exist, if Tenant cures an
Event of Default (A) under Section 12.1(a) prior to the earlier of (x) the
commencement by Landlord of the exercise of any remedy under this Lease by
Landlord or (y) Landlord's Notice to Tenant stating that an Event of Default
exists and further stating Landlord's intention to assert one or more remedies
hereunder, and (B) under any of Section 12.1(b)-(l), prior to the commencement
by Landlord of the exercise of any remedy under this Lease by Landlord.

        12.2    Remedies.

                None of (a) the termination of this Lease pursuant to Section
12.1, (b) the repossession of the Leased Property, (c) the failure of Landlord
to re-let the Leased Property, or (d) the reletting of the Leased Property,
shall relieve Tenant of its liability and obligations hereunder, all of which
shall survive any such termination, repossession or re-letting. In the event of
any such termination, Tenant shall forthwith pay to Landlord all Rent due and
payable with respect to the Leased Property through and including the date of
such termination. Thereafter, Tenant, until the earlier of what would have been
the end of the Term of this Lease in the absence of such termination, or the
date on which Tenant pays Landlord the liquidated final damages described in the
next paragraph of this Section 12.2, and whether or not the Leased Property or
any portion thereof shall have been re-let, shall be liable to Landlord for, and
shall pay to Landlord, as current damages, the Rent and other charges which
would be payable hereunder for the remainder of the Term had such termination
not occurred, less the net proceeds, if any, of any re-letting or other
operation by or on behalf of Landlord of the Leased Property, after deducting
all expenses in connection with such reletting, including, without limitation,
all repossession costs, brokerage commissions, legal expenses, attorneys' fees,
advertising, expenses of employees, alteration costs and expenses of preparation
for such reletting. Tenant shall

                                      -68-

<PAGE>
 
pay such current damages to Landlord monthly on the days on which the Minimum
Rent would have been payable hereunder if this Lease had not been so terminated.

                At any time after such termination, at Landlord's election,
whether or not Landlord shall have previously collected any such current
damages, as liquidated final damages beyond the date of such termination, Tenant
shall pay to Landlord an amount equal to the present value (discounted at a rate
of twelve percent (12%) per annum) of the excess, if any, of the Rent and other
charges which would be payable hereunder from the date of such termination
(assuming that, for the purposes of this paragraph, annual payments by Tenant on
account of Impositions would be the same as payments required for the
immediately preceding twelve calendar months) for what would be the then
unexpired Term of this Lease if the same remained in effect, over the Fair
Market Rental for the same period. Nothing contained in this Lease shall,
however, limit or prejudice the right of Landlord to prove and obtain in
proceedings for bankruptcy or insolvency an amount equal to the maximum allowed
by any statute or rule of law in effect at the time when, and governing the
proceedings in which, the damages are to be proved, whether or not the amount be
greater than, equal to, or less than the amount of the loss or damages referred
to above.

                Percentage Rent for the purposes of this Section 12.2 shall be a
sum equal to (i) the average of the annual amounts of Percentage Rent for the
three (3) Fiscal Years immediately preceding the Fiscal Year in which the
termination, re-entry or repossession takes place, or (ii) if three (3) Fiscal
Years shall not have elapsed, the Percentage Rent during the preceding Fiscal
Year during which this Lease was in effect.

                In case of any Event of Default, re-entry, expiration and
dispossession by summary proceedings or otherwise, Landlord may, subject to the
rights of Manager under the Management Agreement, (a) relet the Leased Property
or any part or parts thereof, either in the name of Landlord or otherwise, for a
term or terms which may, at Landlord's option, be equal to, less than or exceed
the period which would otherwise have constituted the balance of the Term and
may grant concessions or free rent to the extent that Landlord considers
advisable and necessary to relet the same, and (b) make such reasonable
alterations, repairs and decorations in the Leased Property or any portion
thereof as Landlord, in its sole and absolute discretion, considers advisable
and necessary for the purpose of reletting the Leased Property; and the making
of such alterations, repairs and decorations shall not operate or be construed
to release Tenant from liability hereunder as aforesaid. Subject to the last
sentence of this paragraph, Landlord shall in no event be liable in any way
whatsoever for any failure to relet all or any portion of the Leased Property,
or, in the event that the Leased Property is relet, for failure to collect the
rent under such reletting. To the maximum extent permitted by law, Tenant hereby
expressly waives any and all rights of redemption granted under any present or
future laws in the event of Tenant being evicted or dispossessed, or in the
event of Landlord obtaining possession of the Leased Property, by reason of the
occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default hereunder.
Landlord covenants and agrees in the event of any termination of this Lease as a
result of an Event of Default to use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate
its damages.

        12.3    Waivers.

                LANDLORD AND TENANT WAIVE, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY
RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN CONNECTION WITH ANY MATTER ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY
WAY CONNECTED WITH THIS LEASE, THE RELATIONSHIP OF LANDLORD AND TENANT AND/OR
TENANT'S USE OR OCCUPANCY OF THE LEASED PROPERTY. TENANT WAIVES, TO THE EXTENT
PERMITTED BY LAW, THE BENEFIT OF ANY LAWS NOW OR HEREAFTER IN FORCE EXEMPTING
PROPERTY FROM LIABILITY FOR RENT OR FOR DEBT.

        12.4    Application of Funds.

                Any payments received by Landlord under any of the provisions of
this Lease during the existence or continuance of any Event of Default (and any
payment made to Landlord rather than Tenant due to the existence of any Event of
Default) shall be applied to Tenant's obligations under this Lease in such order
as Landlord may determine or as may be prescribed by the laws of the State.

        12.5    Landlord's Right to Cure Tenant's Default.

                If (i) a Default shall have occurred and is continuing which in
the reasonable judgment of Landlord requires immediate action on the part of
Landlord or (ii) an Event of Default shall have occurred and is continuing,
Landlord, after Notice to Tenant (which Notice need not precede such action if
Landlord shall reasonably determine immediate action is necessary to protect
person or property), without waiving or releasing any obligation of Tenant and
without waiving or releasing any Event of Default, may (but shall not be
obligated to), at any time thereafter, make such payment or perform such act for
the account and at the expense of Tenant, and may, to the maximum extent
permitted by law, enter upon the Leased Property or any portion thereof for such
purpose and take all such action thereon as, in Landlord's sole and absolute
discretion, may be necessary or appropriate therefor, including the management
of the Facility by Landlord or its designee, and Tenant hereby irrevocably
appoints, in the event of such election by Landlord, Landlord or its designee as
the operator of the Facility and its attorney in fact for such purpose,
irrevocably and coupled with an interest, in the name, place and stead of
Tenant. No such entry shall be deemed an eviction of Tenant. All reasonable
costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees)
incurred by Landlord in connection therewith, together with interest thereon (to
the extent permitted by law) at the Overdue Rate from the date such sums are
paid by Landlord until repaid, shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord, on demand.

                                  HOLDING OVER

                Any holding over by Tenant after the expiration or sooner
termination of this Lease (other than with the express written consent of
Landlord) shall be treated as a tenancy at sufferance at a rate equal to (a) one
and one-half (1.5) times one-twelfth of the aggregate Minimum Rent and
Percentage Rent payable with respect to the last Fiscal Year of the Term, (b)
all Additional Charges accruing during the applicable Accounting Period, and 

                                      -70-

<PAGE>
 
(c) all other sums, if any, payable by Tenant under this Lease with respect to
the Leased Property during the applicable Accounting Period. Tenant shall also
pay to Landlord all damages (direct or indirect) sustained by reason of any such
holding over. Otherwise, such holding over shall be on the terms and conditions
set forth in this Lease, to the extent applicable. Nothing contained herein
shall constitute the consent, express or implied, of Landlord to the holding
over of Tenant after the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.

                                   ARTICLE 14
                  LANDLORD NOTICE OBLIGATION; LANDLORD DEFAULT

        14.1    Landlord Notice Obligation.

                Landlord shall give prompt Notice to Tenant and Manager of any
matters materially affecting the Leased Property of which Landlord receives
written notice or actual knowledge and, to the extent Tenant otherwise has no
notice or actual knowledge thereof, Landlord shall be liable for any liabilities
arising from the failure to deliver such Notice to Tenant. Except as expressly
set forth herein or in the Consent and Assignment, Landlord shall not amend the
Management Agreement without Tenant's prior written consent, which consent shall
not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.

        14.2    Landlord Default.

                The occurrence of the following events shall constitute a
"Landlord Default":

                (a)     Landlord fails to make any payment due hereunder when
due and such failure continues for a period of ten (10) days following Notice
from Tenant that such payment is due and owing and unpaid.

                (b)     Landlord fails to maintain the insurance coverages that
it is required to maintain under Article 9.

                (c)     Landlord defaults in the due observance or performance
of any of the terms, covenants or agreements contained herein to be performed or
observed by it (other than as specified in clauses (a) and (b) above), and, in
either case, such default continues for a period of thirty (30) days after
Notice thereof from Tenant to Landlord; provided, however, that if such default
is curable but such cure cannot be accomplished with due diligence within such
period of time and if, in addition, Landlord commences to cure such default
within thirty (30) days after Notice thereof from Tenant and thereafter
prosecutes the curing of such default with all due diligence, such period of
time shall be extended to such period of time (not to exceed one hundred twenty
(120) days in the aggregate, subject to Unavoidable Delay) as may be necessary
to cure such default.

                (d)     Landlord is generally not paying its debts as they
become due, or Landlord makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors.

                (e)     Any petition is filed by or against Landlord under the
Federal bankruptcy laws, or any other proceeding is instituted by or against
Landlord seeking to

                                      -71-

<PAGE>
 
adjudicate it a bankrupt or insolvent, or seeking liquidation, reorganization,
arrangement, adjustment or composition of it or its debts under any law relating
to bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization or relief of debtors, or seeking the
entry of an order for relief or the appointment of a receiver, trustee,
custodian or other similar official for Landlord or for any substantial part of
the property of Landlord and, in the case of any involuntary petition filed or
proceeding instituted against Landlord only, such proceeding is not dismissed
within sixty (60) days after institution thereof, or Landlord takes any action
to authorize or effect any of the actions set forth above in this paragraph.

                (f)     Landlord causes or institutes any proceeding for its
dissolution or termination.

                (g)     Landlord or Host O.P. defaults under the terms of any of
the Related Agreements beyond the expiration of any applicable notice and cure
periods.

                Subject to Section 23.11, in the event of a Landlord Default,
Tenant shall have and may exercise all rights and remedies available at law and
in equity, including, without limitation, the right to pursue an action for
damages against Landlord; provided, however, that except as otherwise expressly
provided in this Lease, Tenant shall have no right to terminate this Lease for
any Landlord Default hereunder and no right to offset or counterclaim against
any Rent or other charges due hereunder. If Landlord shall in good faith dispute
the occurrence of any Landlord Default and Landlord shall give Notice thereof to
Tenant, setting forth, in reasonable detail, the basis therefor, and Tenant and
Landlord shall fail, in good faith, to resolve any such dispute within ten (10)
days after Landlord's Notice of dispute, then either may submit the matter to
arbitration under Article 15 for resolution, and no Landlord Default shall be
deemed to have occurred and Landlord shall have no obligation with respect
thereto until final adverse determination thereof in such arbitration. In the
event of any such adverse determination, Landlord shall pay to Tenant interest
on any disputed funds at the Overdue Rate, from the date demand was made until
paid, and in the event Landlord fails to make such payment within fifteen (15)
days after such adverse determination, Tenant shall be entitled to offset such
amount against the payment or, if necessary, payments of Rent next coming due
hereunder. If Tenant reasonably determines that immediate action is necessary to
protect person or property or to comply with Legal Requirements, Tenant may
forthwith cure the Landlord Default and invoice Landlord for costs and expenses
(including reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs) incurred by Tenant in
curing the same, together with interest thereon from the date Landlord receives
Tenant's Notice, at the Overdue Rate.

                                   ARBITRATION

        15.1    Arbitration.

                In each case specified in this Lease in which it shall become
necessary to resort to arbitration, such arbitration shall be determined as
provided in this Article 15. The party desiring such arbitration shall give
Notice to that effect to the other party, specifying the nature of the dispute,
the amount involved (if any), and the remedy sought. An arbitrator shall be
selected by mutual agreement of the parties, or if they cannot agree 

                                      -72-

<PAGE>
 
within thirty (30) days of such Notice, by appointment made by the American
Arbitration Association ("AAA") from among the members of its panels who are
qualified and who have experience in resolving matters of a nature similar to
the matter to be resolved by arbitration.

        15.2    Arbitration Procedures.

                Any arbitration commenced pursuant to Section 15.1 shall be
conducted in accordance with the AAA's Rules of Commercial Arbitration in
business disputes. A single arbitrator shall be designated and shall resolve the
dispute. The arbitrator's decision shall be binding on all parties, shall not be
subject to further review or appeal except as otherwise allowed by applicable
law and may be filed in and enforced by a court of competent jurisdiction. The
arbitrator shall award to the prevailing party, if any, as determined by the
arbitrator, all of its costs and expenses, including attorneys' fees,
arbitrator's fees, and reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of any kind, except as
otherwise specified below in this Section 15.2. The term "prevailing party," as
used in the preceding sentence, shall mean the party whose position is most
nearly upheld in arbitration. Upon the failure of either party (the
"non-complying party") to comply with the arbitrator's decision, the arbitrator
shall be empowered, at the request of the other party, to order such compliance
by the non-complying party and to supervise or arrange for the supervision of
the non-complying party's obligation to comply with the arbitrator's decision,
all at the expense of the non-complying party. To the maximum extent
practicable, the arbitrator and the parties, and the AAA, if applicable, shall
take any action necessary to insure that the arbitration shall be concluded
within ninety (90) days of the filing of such dispute. Unless otherwise agreed
in writing by the parties or required by the arbitrator or the AAA, if
applicable, arbitration proceedings hereunder shall be conducted in the
Washington, DC, metropolitan area. Notwithstanding formal rules of evidence,
each party may submit such evidence as each party deems appropriate to support
its position, and the arbitrator shall have access to and the right to examine
all books and records of Landlord and Tenant and, subject to the Management
Agreement, the Manager regarding the Leased Property during the arbitration The
consideration of the parties to be bound by arbitration is not only the waiver
of trial by jury but also the waiver of any rights to appeal the arbitration
finding.

                                   ARTICLE 16
                            SUBLETTING AND ASSIGNMENT

        16.1    Subletting and Assignment.

                Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Section 16.1,
Tenant shall not, without the prior written consent of Landlord (which consent
may be withheld in Landlord's sole and absolute discretion), assign, mortgage,
pledge, hypothecate, encumber or otherwise transfer this Lease or sublease
(which term shall be deemed to include the granting of concessions, licenses and
the like) all or any part of the Leased Property, or suffer or permit this Lease
or the leasehold estate created hereby or any other rights arising under this
Lease to be assigned, transferred, mortgaged, pledged, hypothecated or
encumbered, in whole or in part, whether voluntarily, involuntarily or by
operation of law, or permit the use or occupancy of the Leased Property by
anyone other than Tenant or Manager (except in accordance with Section 21.3.4),
or permit the Leased Property to be

                                      -73-

<PAGE>
 
offered or advertised for assignment or subletting. Tenant may, in each
instance, after Notice to Landlord, assign this Lease to any Qualified Affiliate
in accordance with Section 21.6.6, so long as such assignment will not violate
or affect any applicable Legal Requirements or Insurance Requirements. For
purposes of this Section 16.1, an assignment of this Lease (other than to a
Qualified Affiliate in accordance with Section 21.6.6) shall be deemed to
constitute a Change in Control.

                If this Lease is assigned or if the Leased Property or any part
thereof is sublet in contravention of this Lease, Landlord may collect the rents
from such assignee, subtenant or occupant, as the case may be, and apply the net
amount collected to the Rent herein reserved, but no such collection shall be
deemed (i) a waiver of the provisions set forth in the first paragraph of this
Section 16.1, (ii) the acceptance by Landlord of such assignee, subtenant or
occupant, as the case may be, as a tenant, or (iii) a release of Tenant from the
future performance by Tenant of its covenants, agreements or obligations
contained in this Lease.

                Tenant, as the debtor in possession, or the trustee for Tenant
(collectively, the "Trustee") in any proceeding under Title 11 of the United
States Bankruptcy Code relating to Bankruptcy, as amended (the "Bankruptcy
Code"), shall not have the right to assign this Lease or sublet the Leased
Property to an assignee or sublessee that (i) is a competitor of Landlord or
(ii) is not a capable, reliable, qualified Person of good reputation and
character with the financial capacity to satisfy Tenant's obligations under this
Lease. The Trustee shall not have the right to assign this Lease or sublet the
Leased Property to a real estate investment trust that is, or intends to be,
publicly traded.

                In the event that Tenant becomes the subject of any proceeding
under Title 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, Tenant covenants and agrees that: (i) it
shall promptly upon demand therefor from Landlord, but in no event later than
sixty (60) days (as such time may be extended by a bankruptcy court in such
proceeding) after the commencement of such proceeding (a "Tenant Bankruptcy"),
announce its decision whether to assume or reject this Lease and Tenant's
obligations under the Consent and Assignment and the Assigned Agreements, and
promptly take and diligently pursue such actions as may be necessary to
authorize and implement such decision; and (ii) it shall either assume this
Lease and all of Tenant's obligations under the Consent and Assignment and the
Assigned Agreements to the extent such Assigned Agreements have not expired or
terminated in accordance with their respective terms, or it shall reject this
Lease and all of Tenant's obligations under the Consent and Assignment and the
Assigned Agreements. In a Tenant Bankruptcy, Tenant covenants and agrees that it
cannot cure any defaults under this Lease and cannot provide adequate assurances
of future performance of this Lease without curing any and all monetary and
non-monetary defaults of Tenant's obligations under the Consent and Assignment
and the Assigned Agreements and providing adequate assurances of Tenant's future
performance of its obligations under the Consent and Assignment and the Assigned
Agreements.

                No subletting or assignment shall in any way impair the
continuing primary liability of Tenant hereunder, and no consent to any
subletting or assignment in a particular instance shall be deemed to be a waiver
of the prohibition set forth in this Section 16.1. No assignment, subletting or
occupancy shall affect any Primary Intended

                                      -74-

<PAGE>
 
Use. Any subletting, assignment or other transfer of Tenant's interest under
this Lease in contravention of this Section 16.1 shall be voidable at Landlord's
option.

        16.2    Required Sublease Provisions.

                Any sublease of all or any portion of the Leased Property
entered into on or subsequent to the Commencement Date shall provide (a) that it
is subject and subordinate to this Lease and to the matters to which this Lease
is or shall be subject or subordinate; (b) that in the event of termination of
this Lease or reentry or dispossession of Tenant by Landlord under this Lease,
Landlord may, at its option, terminate such sublease or take over all of the
right, title and interest of Tenant, as sublessor under such sublease, and such
subtenant shall, at Landlord's option, attorn to Landlord pursuant to the then
executory provisions of such sublease, except that neither Landlord nor the
Facility Mortgagee, as holder of a mortgage or as Landlord under this Lease, if
such mortgagee succeeds to that position, shall (i) be liable for any act or
omission of Tenant under such sublease, (ii) be subject to any credit,
counterclaim, offset or defense which theretofore accrued to such subtenant
against Tenant, (iii) be bound by any previous modification of such sublease
requiring Landlord's consent hereunder and not consented to in writing by
Landlord or by any previous prepayment of more than one (1) month's rent, (iv)
be bound by any covenant of Tenant to undertake or complete any construction of
the Leased Property or any portion thereof, (v) be required to account for any
security deposit of the subtenant other than any security deposit actually
delivered to Landlord by Tenant, (vi) be bound by any obligation to make any
payment to such subtenant or grant any credits, except for services, repairs,
maintenance and restoration provided for under the sublease that are to be
performed after the date of such attornment, (vii) be responsible for any monies
owing by Tenant prior to the date of attornment to the credit of such subtenant,
or (viii) be required to remove any Person occupying any portion of the Leased
Property; and (c) in the event that such subtenant receives a written Notice
from Landlord or the Facility Mortgagee stating that an Event of Default has
occurred and is continuing, such subtenant shall thereafter be obligated to pay
all rentals accruing under such sublease directly to the party giving such
Notice or as such party may direct. All rentals received from such subtenant by
Landlord or the Facility Mortgagee, as the case may be, shall be credited
against the amounts owing by Tenant under this Lease, and such sublease shall
provide that the subtenant thereunder shall, at the request of Landlord, execute
a suitable instrument in confirmation of such agreement to attorn. An original
counterpart of each such sublease and assignment and assumption, duly executed
by Tenant and such subtenant or assignee, as the case may be, in form and
substance reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, shall be delivered promptly to
Landlord upon request and (a) in the case of an assignment, the assignee shall
assume in writing and agree to keep and perform all of the terms of this Lease
on the part of Tenant to be kept and performed and shall be, and become, jointly
and severally liable with Tenant for the performance thereof and (b) in case of
either an assignment or subletting, Tenant shall remain primarily liable, as
principal rather than as surety, for the prompt payment of the Rent and for the
performance and observance of all of the covenants and conditions to be
performed by Tenant hereunder.

                The provisions of this Section 16.2 shall not be deemed a waiver
of the provisions set forth in the first paragraph of Section 16.1.

        16.3    No Right of Tenant to Mortgage Its Leasehold.

                Notwithstanding any other provision of this Lease to the
contrary, Tenant shall not assign its interest in this Lease as collateral for
Indebtedness.

                 ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATES AND FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

        17.1    Estoppel Certificates.

                At any time and from time to time, upon not less than ten (10)
Business Days prior Notice by either party, the non-requesting party shall
furnish to the requesting party, or a designee thereof, an Officer's Certificate
certifying that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or that
this Lease is in full force and effect as modified and setting forth the
modifications), the date to which the Rent has been paid, that to the knowledge
of the certifying party, no Default or an Event of Default has occurred and is
continuing or, if a Default or an Event of Default shall exist, specifying in
reasonable detail the nature thereof and the steps being taken to remedy the
same, and such additional information as the requesting party may reasonably
request. Any such certificate furnished pursuant to this Section 17.1 may be
relied upon by the requesting party, its lender, and any prospective purchaser
or mortgagee of the Leased Property or the leasehold estate conveyed hereby.

        17.2    Financial Statements.

                (i)     promptly after the delivery thereof to Tenant, a copy of

exchange commission, the SEC or any successor agency, or any other governmental
authority, or required pursuant to any order issued by any court, governmental
authority or arbitrator in any litigation to which Landlord is a party, for
purposes of compliance therewith.

                        Landlord may at any time, and from time to time, provide
the Facility Mortgagee with copies of any of the foregoing statements, provided
that Landlord has used commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Facility

satisfactory to Tenant. Upon reasonable Notice from Landlord, Tenant agrees to
cooperate with Landlord to provide to Landlord the data, forecasts, and reports
used in the preparation of the foregoing statements within a reasonable time
frame after such data and reports become available to Tenant, provided, however,
that Tenant makes no representation as to the accuracy of the data, forecasts
and reports provided.

        17.3    Annual Budget.

                Not later than twenty-eight (28) days prior to the commencement
of each Fiscal Year, Tenant shall prepare and submit to Landlord a schedule of
Tenant's reasonable estimate of Gross Revenues by department (the "Operating
Budget Summary"). Not later than fifteen (15) days prior to the commencement of
each Fiscal Year, Tenant shall prepare and submit to Landlord an operating
budget (the "Operating Budget") and a capital budget (the "Capital Budget")
prepared in accordance with the requirements of this Section 17.3. The Operating
Budget and the Capital Budget (together, the "Annual Budget") shall be
consistent with the format provided by Manager and show the following for the
year as a whole:

                                      -77-

<PAGE>
 
                (a)     Tenant's reasonable estimate of Gross Revenues
(including room rates and anticipated Room Revenues) for the forthcoming Fiscal
Year, together with a summary of the estimated operating results provided by the
Manager;

                (b)     An estimate of any amounts Landlord will be requested to
provide for Capital Expenditures during the Fiscal Year;

                (c)     An estimate of the expenditures necessary for
replacements and renewals of FF&E (the "FF&E Estimate"); and

                (d)     Tenant's reasonable estimate of Percentage Rent payable
with respect to Room Revenues, Food and Beverages Sales, and Other Income.

                        Upon reasonable Notice from Landlord, Tenant agrees to
cooperate with Landlord to provide to Landlord the data, forecasts, and reports
used in the preparation of the Capital Budget and the Operating Budget within a
reasonable time frame after such data and reports become available to Tenant,
provided, however, that Tenant makes no representation as to the accuracy of the
data, forecasts and reports provided. Landlord shall have twenty-five (25) days
after the date on which it receives the Annual Budget to review, disapprove or
change the entries and information appearing in the Annual Budget relating to
the Capital Budget or the FF&E Estimate, but with regard to the FF&E Estimate,
only to the extent the FF&E Estimate indicates amounts in excess of the FF&E
Reserve (the Capital Budget and the FF&E Estimate, to the extent it proposes
expenditures in excess of the FF&E Reserve, are collectively referred to herein
as the "Capital Portion"). If the parties are not able to reach agreement on the
Capital Portion for any Fiscal Year during Landlord's twenty-five (25)-day
review period, the parties shall attempt in good faith during the subsequent
twenty-five (25)-day period to resolve any disputes, which attempt shall
include, if requested by either party, at least one (1) meeting of executive
level officers of Landlord and Tenant. In the event the parties are still not
able to reach agreement on the Capital Portion of the Annual Budget for any
particular Fiscal Year after complying with the foregoing requirements of this
Section 17.3.2, no Capital Expenditures or FF&E expenditures in excess of the
FF&E Reserve shall be made unless the same are set forth in a previously
approved Capital Budget or are specifically approved by Landlord or are
otherwise required to comply with Legal Requirements or to make emergency
expenditures in connection with Emergency Situations or otherwise required
pursuant to the Management Agreement.

                        Tenant shall operate the Leased Property consistent with
the Annual Budget and shall promptly report to Landlord in writing any actual or
anticipated deviation from the Operating Budget or Capital Budget of any
material or long-term consequence. To the extent the budget estimates for the
categories of revenues identified in (d) above are not made available on an
Accounting Period or Fiscal Year basis from Manager, Tenant shall cooperate with
Landlord, at Landlord's sole cost, in its efforts to obtain such budget
information from Manager.

                        Not later than seventy-five (75) days after the
beginning of the Fiscal Year, Tenant shall provide Landlord with itemized
schedules on an Accounting Period

                           LANDLORD'S RIGHT TO INSPECT

        Tenant shall permit Landlord and its authorized representatives to
inspect the Leased Property during normal business hours upon not less than
twenty-four (24) hours Notice, and to make such repairs as are required by Legal
Requirements and Insurance Requirements which Tenant fails to make and as
Landlord is permitted or required to make pursuant to the terms of this Lease,
provided that any inspection or repair by Landlord or its representatives will
not unreasonably interfere with Tenant's use and operation of the Leased
Property and provided further that in the event of an emergency, as determined
by Landlord in its reasonable discretion, prior Notice shall not be necessary.

                                   ARTICLE 19
                                    APPRAISAL

        In the event that it becomes necessary to determine the Fair Market
Rental for any purpose of this Lease, or the amount of any adjustment to or
abatement of Minimum Rent and Percentage Rent pursuant to Section 3.1.6(i),
Section 11.3 or Section 12.2 hereof, and the parties cannot agree thereon, such
Fair Market Rental, or reduction, adjustment or abatement, as the case may be,
shall be determined upon the written request of either party in accordance with
the following procedure.

        The party requesting an appraisal, by Notice given to the other, shall
propose and unilaterally appoint a Qualified Appraiser. The other party, by
Notice given within fifteen (15) days after receipt of such Notice appointing
the first Qualified Appraiser, may appoint a second Qualified Appraiser. If the
other party fails to appoint the second Qualified Appraiser within such fifteen
(15)-day period, such party shall have waived its right to appoint a Qualified
Appraiser, the first Qualified Appraiser shall appoint a second Qualified
Appraiser within fifteen (15) days thereafter, and the Fair Market Rental, or
reduction, adjustment or abatement, as the case may be, shall be determined by
the Qualified Appraisers as set forth below.

        The two Qualified Appraisers shall thereupon endeavor to agree upon the
Fair Market Rental, or reduction, adjustment or abatement, as the case may be.
If the two Qualified Appraisers so named cannot agree upon such value or rental,
or reduction, adjustment or abatement, as the case may be, within thirty (30)
days after the designation of the second such appraiser, each such appraiser
shall, within five (5) days after the expiration of such thirty (30)-day period,
submit his appraisal to the other appraiser in writing, and if the Fair Market
Rentals, or amounts of reduction, adjustment or abatement, as the case may be,
set forth in such appraisals vary by five percent (5%) or less of the greater
value, the Fair Market Rental, or reduction, adjustment or abatement, as the
case may be, shall be determined by calculating the average of the two
determinations of the two appraisers.

                                      -79-

<PAGE>
 
        If the Fair Market Rentals, or amounts of reduction, adjustment or
abatement, as the case may be, set forth in the two appraisals vary by more than
five percent (5%) of the greater value, the two Qualified Appraisers shall
select a third Qualified Appraiser within an additional fifteen (15) days
following the expiration of the aforesaid five (5)-day period. If the two
appraisers are unable to agree upon the appointment of a third appraiser within
such fifteen (15)-day period, either party may, upon written notice to the
other, request that such appointment be made by the then President (or
equivalent officer) of the State's Chapter of the American Institute of Real
Estate Appraisers, or his or her designee, or, if there is no such organization
or if such individual declines to make such appointment, by any state or Federal
court of competent jurisdiction for the State.

        In the event that all three of the appraisers cannot agree upon the Fair
Market Rental, or reduction, adjustment or abatement, as the case may be, within
twenty (20) days following the selection of the third appraiser, each appraiser
shall, within ten (10) days thereafter, submit his appraisal to the other two
appraisers in writing, and the Fair Market Rental, or reduction, adjustment or
abatement, as the case may be, shall be determined by calculating the average of
the two numerically closest values (or, if the values are equidistant, the
average of all three values) determined by the three appraisers.

        In the event that any appraiser appointed hereunder does not or is
unable to perform his or her obligation hereunder, then the party or the
appraiser(s) appointing such appraiser shall have the right to propose and
approve unilaterally a substitute Qualified Appraiser, but if the party or the
appraiser(s) who have the right to appoint a substitute Qualified Appraiser fail
to do so within ten (10) days after written Notice from the other party (or
either party in the event such appraiser was appointed by the other appraisers),
either party may, upon written Notice to the party having the right to appoint a
substitute Qualified Appraiser, request that such appointment be made by such
officer of the American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers or court of
competent jurisdiction as described above; provided, however, that a party who
has the right to appoint an appraiser or a substitute appraiser shall have the
right to make such appointment only up until the time such appointment is made
by such officer or court.

        In connection with the appraisal process, so long as Tenant receives
reasonable prior Notice, Tenant shall provide the appraisers full access during
normal business hours to examine the Leased Property, the books, records and
files of Tenant and all agreements, leases and other operating agreements
relating to the Leased Property.

        The costs of each such appraisal shall be borne by the party selecting
the appraiser, provided the cost of the third appraiser shall be split equally
between Landlord and Tenant. Upon determining such Fair Market Rental, or
reduction, adjustment or abatement, as the case may be, the appraisers shall
promptly notify Landlord and Tenant in writing of such determination. If any
party shall fail to appear at the hearings appointed by the appraisers, the
appraisers may act in the absence of such party.

        The determination of the Qualified Appraisers made in accordance with
the foregoing provisions shall be final and binding upon the parties, such
determination may be entered as an award in arbitration in a court of competent
jurisdiction, and judgment thereon may be entered.

                               FACILITY MORTGAGES

        20.1    Landlord May Grant Liens.

                (a)     Without the consent of Tenant, Landlord may, subject to
the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 20.1, from time to time,
directly or indirectly, create or otherwise cause to exist any Lien or ground
lease upon its interest in the Leased Property, or any portion thereof or
interest therein, whether to secure any borrowing or other means of financing or
refinancing, provided that any such Lien or ground lease shall be consistent
with the requirements of the Management Agreement or otherwise approved by
Manager, and shall not modify the terms of this Lease, except as expressly set
forth in Section 20.2. Landlord agrees to provide to Tenant copies of all
existing and future ground leases, and amendments thereto, which affect the
Leased Property.

                (b)     Tenant shall, upon the request of Landlord or any
existing, potential or future Facility Mortgagee, and to the extent in Tenant's
possession or obtainable from Manager pursuant to the Management Agreement, (i)
provide Landlord or the Facility Mortgagee with copies of all licenses, permits,
occupancy agreements, operating agreements, leases, contracts, inspection
reports, studies, appraisals, assessments, default or other notices and similar
materials reasonably requested in connection with any existing or proposed
financing of the Leased Property, and (ii) execute such estoppel certificates
and collateral assignments with respect to the Facility's licenses and any of
the other aforementioned agreements as the Facility Mortgagee may reasonably
request in connection with any such financing, provided that no such estoppel
certificate or collateral assignment shall, except as expressly set forth in
Section 20.2, modify the terms of this Lease.

        20.2    Subordination of Lease.

                Subject to Section 20.1 and the terms of Section 7.1, this
Lease, and any and all rights of Tenant hereunder, are and shall be subject and
subordinate to any Facility Mortgage, any ground or master lease, and all
renewals, extensions, modifications, consolidations and replacements thereof,
and to each and every advance made or hereafter to be made under any such
Facility Mortgage. This section shall be self-operative and no further
instrument of subordination shall be required. In confirmation of such
subordination, Tenant shall promptly execute, acknowledge and deliver any
instrument that Landlord, the landlord under any such lease or the holder of any
such mortgage or the trustee or beneficiary of any deed of trust or any of their
respective successors in interest may reasonably request to evidence such
subordination. Tenant shall not unreasonably withhold its consent to any
amendment to this Lease reasonably required by such lender or ground lessor,
provided that such amendment does not (i) increase Tenant's rental obligations
or other financial obligations hereunder, or (ii) have a material adverse effect
upon Tenant's rights hereunder, or (iii) materially increase Tenant's
non-economic obligations hereunder, or (iv) decrease Landlord's obligations
hereunder. Landlord shall exercise commercially reasonable efforts to require
any future Facility Mortgagee or landlord under a ground lease affecting the
Leased Property to provide Tenant with notice

                                      -81-

<PAGE>
 
and an opportunity to cure Landlord defaults under the respective Facility
Mortgage or ground lease.

        Any lease to which this Lease is, at the time referred to, subject and
subordinate is herein called a "Superior Lease," and the landlord of a Superior
Lease or its successor in interest at the time referred to is herein called
"Superior Landlord"; the Facility Mortgage and any other mortgage or deed of
trust to which this Lease is, at the time referred to, subject and subordinate,
is herein called a "Superior Mortgage," and the Facility Mortgagee and any other
holder, trustee or beneficiary of a Superior Mortgage is herein called "Superior
Mortgagee." Tenant shall have no obligations under any Superior Lease or
Superior Mortgage other than those expressly set forth in this Section 20.2.

        Notwithstanding the obligations of Tenant hereunder, neither any
Superior Mortgagee nor any Superior Landlord shall have an obligation to provide
a non-disturbance agreement to Tenant. Any Superior Mortgagee or Superior
Landlord shall have the right to terminate this Lease upon the foreclosure, deed
in lieu of foreclosure or exercise of the power of sale with respect to the
Leased Property; provided that, if such right is exercised because of (a) a
non-monetary default by Landlord under the terms of the relevant loan agreement
or ground lease not caused by an Event of Default hereunder or (b) a monetary
default by Landlord (including a misapplication of Rent paid by Tenant) where
Tenant is not in Default in the payment of Rent hereunder beyond the expiration
of applicable notice and cure periods, then Landlord shall pay to Tenant the
Fair Market Value of Tenant's leasehold estate as of the termination date in
accordance with Section 24.1(b); provided further that (i) such fee shall be
paid first by offsetting any amounts owed by Tenant to Landlord at such time and
the balance (if any) shall be paid to Tenant in cash and (ii) Tenant agrees to
seek payment of such cash balance (if any) solely from Host O.P. (which, by its
execution of this Lease, agrees to be primarily liable for Landlord's obligation
under this subparagraph of Section 20.2) pursuant to the terms of the Facility
Mortgagee Agreement, and shall not make any demand or claim therefor against
Landlord, the Facility Mortgagee, any purchaser in foreclosure or transferee by
deed in lieu of foreclosure or other party claiming under any of the foregoing.

        In the event a cash flow sweep structure is implemented by any Superior
Mortgagee for any period during the continued implementation of such structure,
(i) Tenant's obligation to pay Rent or any other amounts payable hereunder shall
be reduced by any amounts received by any Superior Mortgagee and (ii) Landlord
shall compensate Tenant on an Accounting Period basis for any Tenant Operating
Profit not received because of the cash flow sweep structure (i.e., any amount
swept in excess of the Rent and other amounts otherwise payable by Tenant under
this Lease) and any other costs incurred or advanced by Tenant pursuant to this
Lease, and Host O.P. agrees to be primarily liable for Landlord's obligation
under this clause (ii). Likewise, for any period during which cash management
procedures are implemented by or on behalf of any Superior Mortgagee, (a)
Tenant's obligation to pay Rent or any other amounts payable hereunder shall be
reduced by any amounts received by any Superior Mortgagee and (b) Landlord shall
compensate Tenant on an Accounting Period basis for any Tenant Operating Profit
not received because of the cash management procedures (i.e., any amount swept
in excess of the Rent and other amounts otherwise payable by Tenant under

                                      -82-

this Lease) and any other costs incurred or advanced by Tenant pursuant to this
Lease, and Host O.P. agrees to be primarily liable for Landlord's obligation
under this clause (b).

                Subject to the termination rights of any Superior Landlord or
Superior Mortgagee, if any, in the event that any Superior Landlord or Superior
Mortgagee or the nominee or designee of any Superior Landlord or Superior
Mortgagee shall succeed to the rights of Landlord under this Lease (any such
person, "Successor Landlord"), whether through possession or foreclosure action
or delivery of a new lease or deed, or otherwise, such Successor Landlord shall
recognize Tenant's rights under this Lease as herein provided and Tenant shall
attorn to and recognize the Successor Landlord as Tenant's landlord under this
Lease and Tenant shall promptly execute and deliver any instrument that such
Successor Landlord may reasonably request to evidence such attornment (provided
that such instrument does not alter the terms of this Lease), whereupon, this
Lease shall continue in full force and effect as a direct lease between the
Successor Landlord and Tenant upon all of the terms, conditions and covenants as
are set forth in this Lease, except that the Successor Landlord (unless formerly
the landlord under this Lease or its nominee or designee) shall not be (a)
liable in any way to Tenant for any act or omission, neglect or default on the
part of any prior Landlord under this Lease, (b) responsible for any monies
owing by or on deposit with any prior Landlord to the credit of Tenant (except
to the extent actually paid or delivered to the Successor Landlord), (c) subject
to any counterclaim or setoff which theretofore accrued to Tenant against any
prior Landlord, (d) bound by any modification of this Lease subsequent to such
Superior Lease or Superior Mortgage, or by any previous prepayment of Minimum
Rent or Additional Rent for more than one (1) month in advance of the date due
hereunder, which was not approved in writing by the Superior Landlord or the
Superior Mortgagee, (e) liable to Tenant beyond the Successor Landlord's
interest in the Leased Property and the rents, income, receipts, revenues,
issues and profits issuing from the Leased Property, (f) responsible for the
performance of any work to be done by Landlord under this Lease to render the
Leased Property ready for occupancy by Tenant (subject to Landlord's obligations
under Section 5.1.2(b) or with respect to any insurance or Condemnation
proceeds), or (g) required to remove any Person occupying the Leased Property or
any part thereof, except if such Person claims by, through or under the
Successor Landlord. Tenant agrees at any time and from time to time to execute a
suitable instrument in confirmation of Tenant's agreement to attorn, as
aforesaid.

                Attached hereto as Schedule 20.3 is a list of the Superior

Landlord Default by any Superior Mortgagee(s) or Superior Landlord(s) listed on

periods set forth herein.

        20.4    Transfer of Leased Property.

                Notwithstanding anything set forth herein to the contrary, but
subject to the rights of a Facility Mortgagee as set forth herein, Landlord
shall not, without the consent of Tenant, transfer the Leased Property, or any
interest therein, to any Person (i) which does not have sufficient financial

Persons who have been, convicted of felonies involving moral turpitude in any
state or federal court, or otherwise would cause a breach of the Management
Agreement.

        20.5    Consent of Lender.

                (a)     Landlord shall, upon the request of Tenant at any time
during the year immediately preceding the year in which a Renewal Term is to
commence, exercise commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the consent of any
and all Facility Mortgagees, ground lessors, partners or other third parties
("Consent Party") to the exercise of Tenant Renewal Options, and to the change
in the Rent for any Renewal Period, if any, provided hereunder, to the extent
such consent is reasonably determined by Landlord to be required pursuant to the
terms of any Facility Mortgage, ground lease, partnership or joint venture
agreement or any other third party agreement ("Third Party Agreement").

                (b)     Landlord shall exercise commercially reasonable efforts
to cause any and all Third Party Agreements hereafter entered into, as well as
all other documents or agreements hereafter entered into in connection with any
such Third Party Agreements to permit the exercise of Tenant Renewal Options
without any Consent Party's consent.

                (c)     In the event that Landlord reasonably concludes and
notifies Tenant prior to the scheduled commencement of a Renewal Term that,
despite Landlord's commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the consent of any
Consent Party pursuant to this Section 20.5, the exercise by Tenant of a Tenant
Renewal Option or the change in the Rent for any Renewal Period will cause
Landlord to be in default under the terms of the applicable Third Party
Agreement, Tenant agrees that it shall not elect to exercise a Tenant Renewal
Option (and any prior exercises shall be null and void).

to apply to and be binding upon Landlord (as, but only to the extent, such
obligations apply to Landlord, the "Continuing Obligations")), except for
certain obligations of "Owner" that the Consent and Assignment expressly
provides shall remain the sole obligations of Landlord (the "Retained
Obligations"). Landlord hereby covenants to perform the Retained Obligations and
the Continuing Obligations. In addition, Landlord shall be entitled, together
with Tenant, to exercise the "Continuing Rights," as defined in the Consent and
Assignment, and Tenant shall not be entitled to exercise any of the "Reserved
Rights," as defined in the Consent and Assignment, which are reserved
exclusively to Landlord.

                21.3.2  Reversion upon Termination.

                        All of Landlord's rights, benefits and privileges with
respect to the Management Agreement shall be vested in Tenant throughout the
Term of this Lease; provided, however, that upon termination of this Lease, for
whatever reason, all of Landlord's rights, benefits and privileges under the
Management Agreement shall automatically revert to Landlord without the
necessity of any action on the part of Landlord hereunder.

                21.3.3  Compliance with Management Agreement and
Indemnification.

                        To the extent that any of the provisions of the
Management Agreement impose a greater obligation on Tenant than the
corresponding provisions of this Lease, then Tenant shall be obligated to comply
with, and to take all reasonable actions necessary to prevent breaches or
defaults under, the provisions of the Management Agreement. Notwithstanding
anything contained herein to the contrary, Tenant shall perform and comply in
every respect with the provisions of the Management 

                                      -85-

Agreement. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, Tenant 
shall perform and comply in every respect with the provisions of the Management 
Agreement, except for the Retained Obligations and Continuing Obligations, which
shall remain the sole responsibility of Landlord, so as to avoid any default
thereunder during the Term of this Lease. Tenant shall, at all times, direct and
require Manager to perform all of Manager's obligations under the Management
Agreement. Tenant shall protect, indemnify and hold harmless Landlord for, from
and against all liabilities, obligations, claims, damages, penalties, causes of
action, costs and reasonable expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable
attorneys' fees), to the maximum extent permitted by law, imposed upon, incurred
by, or asserted against Landlord by reason of a default by Tenant under the
Management Agreement, including, without limitation, any default by Tenant under
the Management Agreement attributable to a failure by Tenant to perform its
obligations under this Lease. Likewise, Landlord shall protect, indemnify and
hold harmless Tenant for, from and against all liabilities, obligations, claims,
damages, penalties, causes of action, costs and reasonable expenses (including,
without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees), to the maximum extent permitted
by law, imposed upon, incurred by, or asserted against Tenant by reason of a
default by Landlord under the Management Agreement, including, without
limitation, any default by Landlord under the Management Agreement attributable
to a failure by Landlord to perform its obligations under this Lease. The
obligations of Landlord and Tenant set forth in this Section 21.3.3 shall
survive the termination of this Lease.

                21.3.4  Consent Required for Certain Actions.

                        Without at least thirty (30) days prior written Notice
to Landlord in the case of subsections (1), (2), (5), and (6) below, and without
at least fifteen (15) days prior written Notice in the case of subsections (3)
and (4) below, Tenant shall not take any of the following actions:

                        (1)     terminate the Management Agreement prior to the
expiration of the term thereof;

                        (2)     amend, modify or assign its interest in (except
in connection with an assignment permitted pursuant to Section 16.1 hereof) the
Management Agreement;

                        (3)     waive (or fail to enforce) any right of "Owner"
under the Management Agreement;

                        (4)     waive any breach or default by Manager under the
Management Agreement (or fail to enforce any right of "Owner" in connection
therewith);

                        (5)     agree to any change in Manager or consent to any
assignment by Manager; or

                        (6)     take any other action which reasonably could be
expected to materially adversely affect Landlord's rights or obligations under
the Management

                                      -86-

<PAGE>
 
Agreement for periods following termination of this Lease (whether upon the
expiration of its term or upon earlier termination as provided for herein).

                        Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant shall not take any
of the actions listed in clauses (1) through (6) above without Landlord's prior
written consent if such action:

                                (A)     would materially impair the ability of
Tenant to perform Tenant's obligations under this Lease (including, without
limitation, make all payments of Rent as and when due under this Lease);

                                (B)     would cause Tenant not to comply with
the obligations of Tenant set forth in Section 4.1;

                                (C)     would materially adversely affect the
economic value of the Leased Property to Landlord;

                                (D)     would waive, modify, eliminate or fail
to enforce any territoriality or similar restriction or limitation; or

                                (E)     would materially increase the legal
exposure of Landlord to Manager under the Management Agreement during the Term,
either by reason of Landlord's continuing liability to Manager pursuant to the
Consent and Assignment, or with respect to the Retained Obligations or the
Continuing Obligations.

                21.3.5  Replacement of Manager.

                        Notwithstanding Section 21.3.4 above, Tenant shall not
agree to change the management or the brand affiliation of the Facility without
the prior approval of Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably
withheld, conditioned or delayed. In addition, the proposed replacement manager
shall be nationally recognized and shall have substantial experience managing
hotels of comparable quality. No such replacement or change in brand affiliation
shall continue beyond the Term hereof without the prior written approval of
Landlord, which approval may be granted or withheld in Landlord's sole
discretion.

        21.4    Facility Mortgagee Agreement.

                Tenant agrees to enter into an agreement with Landlord, any
Facility Mortgagee and Host O.P. (the "Facility Mortgagee Agreement") pursuant
to which, in consideration of Facility Mortgagee's consent to this Lease and the
transactions contemplated hereby: (i) Tenant acknowledges to the Facility
Mortgagee that the Working Capital purchased by Tenant with the Working Capital
Note and all Excess FF&E acquired by Tenant from Landlord while the Facility
Mortgage is in effect is subject to the Facility Mortgagee's first priority Lien
(without Tenant assuming any liability for Landlord's obligations that are
secured by or arise under any Facility Mortgage) and that the Facility
Mortgagee's rights and remedies with respect to such Working Capital and Excess
FF&E shall survive and be enforceable with respect thereto; (ii) Tenant
covenants to the Facility Mortgagee to sign, provided Landlord shall prepare and
file at its sole cost, 

                                      -87-

<PAGE>
 
UCC-1 financing statements confirming the foregoing for notice purposes; (iii)
Tenant covenants not to sell, lease, transfer or otherwise dispose of such
Working Capital or Excess FF&E or any interest therein (other than in the
ordinary course of business or other than to Landlord in accordance with the
terms of this Lease upon the expiration or earlier termination of the Term), or
grant or cause or permit to exist any lien, charge or encumbrance with respect
thereto, other than the aforesaid Lien in favor of the Facility Mortgagee and
any other Liens securing obligations which are the responsibility of Landlord;
(iv) Landlord agrees that this Lease and the Working Capital Note will not be
modified or amended in any manner that would adversely affect the Facility
Mortgagee's collateral under the Facility Mortgage without the Facility
Mortgagee's prior written consent; (v) Landlord and Tenant agree to confirm to
the Facility Mortgagee that the Facility Mortgagee shall have the right to
terminate this Lease in the event of a foreclosure by the Facility Mortgagee
under the Facility Mortgage, pursuant to Article 20 hereof; (vi) Tenant agrees
that, in the event of a foreclosure by the Facility Mortgagee under the Facility
Mortgage, the Facility Mortgagee shall have the right to continue this Lease as
lessor and succeed to all Landlord's rights hereunder and under the Security
Agreement, provided that in such event the Facility Mortgagee recognizes
Tenant's rights hereunder; (vii) if the Facility Mortgagee terminates this Lease
in accordance with Article 20 hereof, (A) Tenant agrees, at the Facility
Mortgagee's request, to convey all Working Capital existing at such time
directly to the Facility Mortgagee or its designee in payment of the Working
Capital Note (together with any cash balance due from Tenant in respect
thereto), (B) Tenant agrees to look solely to Host O.P. for payment of any cash
balance payable to Tenant for Working Capital to the extent such Working Capital
exceeds the balance due under the Working Capital Note, and (C) Host O.P. agrees
to pay such cash balance directly to Tenant, without the necessity of notice or
demand on Landlord; and (viii) Tenant agrees that if the amount specified in
Section 24.1(b) of this Lease and/or the Excess FF&E Reimbursement Amount become
payable in connection with a foreclosure by the Facility Mortgagee under the
Facility Mortgage, then (A) such amount(s) shall be paid first by offsetting any
amounts owed by Tenant to Landlord, and the balance (if any) shall be paid by
Host O.P. to Tenant in cash, (B) Host O.P. agrees to pay such cash balance (if
any) directly to Tenant without the need for notice or demand on Landlord, and
(C) Tenant agrees to look only to Host O.P. for payment of such cash balance.

                21.6.3  Limitation on Indebtedness and Guarantees

                        Except pursuant to the Consent and Assignment or as
otherwise expressly provided herein, Tenant shall not (i) incur, create or
assume any Indebtedness of any kind; or (ii) guarantee or have any consensual

                have agreed in writing, in form and substance satisfactory to
                Landlord, that payment of such Indebtedness shall be
                subordinated in all respects to performance of Tenant's
                obligations under this Lease and that no remedies may be
                exercised with respect to enforcement or collection of such
                Indebtedness until such time as this Lease shall have terminated
                and all obligations owed by Tenant hereunder shall have been
                discharged in full; and

                        (iii)   if no Event of Default has occurred and is

                incurrence does not result in the incurrence of any obligation
                to repay any obligation relating to borrowed money of others),
                all in the ordinary course of business in accordance with
                customary industry practices.

                21.6.4  Distributions

                        Tenant shall make no distributions of cash or other
assets to any of its members if an Event of Default has occurred and is
continuing under Section 12.1(a) hereof.

                21.6.5  Single Purpose

all its members, including the consent of an Independent Member, file a
bankruptcy or insolvency petition or otherwise institute bankruptcy proceedings;

of the Facility.

                21.6.6  Certain Fundamental Changes

                        Without the consent of Landlord and any Facility
Mortgagee (if required), Tenant shall not (i) be a party to any merger or
consolidation with any Person, or (ii) assign its rights under this Lease, or
assign, transfer, or sell all or any substantial portion of its assets to any
Person, in each case other than a Qualified Affiliate that is a Single Purpose
entity, has no outstanding Indebtedness (other than Permitted Debt) and no Liens

                                   LIMITATIONS

        22.1    REIT Compliance.

                Tenant acknowledges that Host REIT intends to qualify as a real
estate investment trust under the Code. Tenant agrees that it will not knowingly
or intentionally take or omit to take any action, or permit any status or
condition to exist at the Leased Property, which Tenant actually knows (acting
in good faith) would or could result in (i) the Rent payable under this Lease
not qualifying as "rents from real property" as defined in Section 856(d) of the
Code or (ii) Host REIT being disqualified from treatment as a real estate
investment trust under the Code as the provisions exist on the date hereof;
provided, however, that notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, (i)
Tenant shall not be responsible for any act or omission of Landlord or Manager
(unless Manager's action was with the express written consent or at the
direction of Tenant), and (ii) any action by Tenant taken in compliance with the
express terms of this Lease, the Consent and Assignment, or the Management
Agreement shall not be deemed to create a Default or Event of Default under this
Section 22.1.

        22.2    FF&E Limitation.

                This Section 22.2 is intended to insure that all of the rent
payable under this Lease qualifies as "rents from real property" within the
meaning of Section 856(d) of the Code or any similar or successor provisions
thereto. In furtherance of such purpose, the parties have agreed to the terms
set forth in Schedule 22.2 attached hereto.
             -------------

        22.3    Sublease Rent Limitation.

                Anything contained in this Lease to the contrary
notwithstanding, from and after the Commencement Date, Tenant shall not
knowingly or intentionally (acting in good faith) enter into any sublease with
respect to the Leased Property or any part thereof on any basis such that the
rental to be paid by the sublessee thereunder would be based (or considered to
be based), in whole or in part, on either (a) the income or profits derived by
the business activities of the sublessee, or (b) any other formula such that any
portion of the rent payable hereunder would or could, to Tenant's actual
knowledge (acting in good faith), fail to qualify as "rents from real property"
within the meaning of Section 856(d) of the Code, or any similar or successor
provisions thereto.

        22.4    Sublease Tenant Limitation.

                Anything contained in this Lease to the contrary
notwithstanding, Tenant shall not knowingly or intentionally (acting in good
faith) sublease any Leased Property or any part thereof to any Person or Entity
in which Landlord, Host O.P., or Host REIT owns, directly or indirectly, a ten
percent (10%) or greater interest, within the meaning of Section 856(d)(2)(B) of
the Code, or any similar or successor provisions thereto. Tenant shall take
reasonable precautions in connection with each sublease (including providing
Landlord with prompt Notice of the same) to ensure that such sublease will not
result in a violation of this Section 22.4.

                                      -91-

<PAGE>
 
        22.5    Tenant Ownership Limitation.

                Anything contained in this Lease to the contrary
notwithstanding, Tenant shall not knowingly or intentionally (acting in good
faith), and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause its Affiliates
not to knowingly or intentionally (acting in good faith), acquire, directly or
indirectly, (a) a nine and 80/100 percent (9.8%) or greater interest in Landlord
or Host REIT, or (b) a four and 90/100 percent (4.9%) or greater interest in
Host O.P., within the meaning of Section 856(d)(2)(B) of the Code, or any
similar or successor provisions thereto.

                                 MISCELLANEOUS

        23.1    No Waiver.

                No failure by either Landlord or Tenant to insist upon the
strict performance of any term hereof or to exercise any right, power or remedy
consequent upon a breach thereof, and no acceptance of full or partial payment
of Rent during the continuance of any such breach, shall constitute a waiver of
any such breach or of any such term. To the maximum extent permitted by law, no
waiver of any breach shall affect or alter this Lease, which shall continue in
full force and effect with respect to any other then existing or subsequent
breach.

        23.2    Remedies Cumulative.

                To the maximum extent permitted by law, each legal, equitable or
contractual right, power and remedy of either party now or hereafter provided
either in this Lease or by statute, or otherwise, shall be cumulative and
concurrent and shall be in addition to every other right, power and remedy, and
the exercise or beginning of the exercise by either party of any one or more of
such rights, powers and remedies shall not preclude the simultaneous or
subsequent exercise by such party of any or all of such other rights, powers and
remedies.

        23.3    Severability.

                Any clause, sentence, paragraph, section or provision of this
Lease held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or
ineffective shall not impair, invalidate or nullify the remainder of this Lease,
but rather the effect thereof shall be confined to the clause, sentence,
paragraph, section or provision so held to be invalid, illegal or ineffective,
and this Lease shall be construed as if such invalid, illegal or ineffective
provisions had never been contained herein.

        23.4    Acceptance of Surrender.

                No surrender to Landlord of this Lease or of the Leased Property
or any part thereof, or of any interest therein, shall be valid or effective
unless agreed to and accepted in writing by Landlord, and no act by Landlord or
any representative or agent of Landlord, other than such a written acceptance by
Landlord, shall constitute an acceptance of any such surrender.

<PAGE>
 
        23.5    No Merger of Title.

                It is expressly acknowledged and agreed that it is the intent of
the parties that there shall be no merger of this Lease or of the leasehold
estate created hereby by reason of the fact that the same Person may acquire,
own or hold, directly or indirectly, this Lease or the leasehold estate created
hereby and the fee estate or Superior Landlord's interest in the Leased
Property.

        23.6    Release of Landlord Following Conveyance.

                If Landlord or any successor owner of all or any portion of the
Leased Property shall convey all or any portion of the Leased Property in
accordance with the terms hereof other than as security for a debt, and the
grantee or transferee of the Leased Property shall expressly assume all
obligations of Landlord hereunder arising or accruing from and after the date of
such conveyance or transfer, Landlord or such successor owner, as the case may
be, shall thereupon be released from all future liabilities and obligations of
Landlord under this Lease with respect to such of the Leased Property arising or
accruing from and after the date of such conveyance or other transfer, all such
future liabilities and obligations shall thereupon be binding upon the new
owner, and all references herein to Landlord thereafter shall be deemed to refer
to the new owner.

        23.7    Quiet Enjoyment.

                Provided that no Event of Default shall have occurred and be
continuing, Tenant shall peaceably and quietly have, hold and enjoy the Leased
Property for the Term, free of hindrance or molestation by Landlord or anyone
claiming by, through or under Landlord, but subject to (a) all Permitted Liens,
(b) Liens as to obligations of Landlord that are either not yet due or which are
being contested in good faith and by proper proceedings, provided the same do
not materially interfere with Tenant's ability to operate the Facility, (c)
Liens that have been consented to in writing by Tenant, and (d) Landlord's
option to terminate this Lease pursuant to Article 24. Except as otherwise
provided in this Lease, no failure by Landlord to comply with the foregoing
covenant shall give Tenant any right to cancel or terminate this Lease or abate,
reduce or make a deduction from or offset against the Rent or any other sum
payable under this Lease, or to fail to perform any other obligation of Tenant
hereunder.

        23.8    Landlord's Consent.

                Where provision is made in this Lease for Landlord's consent and
Landlord shall fail or refuse to give such consent, except to the extent
expressly provided herein to the contrary Tenant shall not be entitled to any
damages for any withholding by Landlord of its consent, it being intended that
Tenant's sole remedy shall be an action for specific performance or injunction
and that such remedy shall be available only in those cases where Landlord has
expressly agreed in writing not unreasonably to withhold its consent. Whenever
in this Lease the consent or approval of Landlord or Tenant is required, such
consent or approval shall (except to the extent that such consent or approval is
specifically designated as being "within the discretion" of a party, or words to
that effect, in the applicable provision) not be unreasonably withheld,
conditioned or delayed, shall be in

                                      -93-

<PAGE>
 
writing and shall be executed by a duly authorized officer or agent of the party
granting such consent or approval; provided, however, that Landlord shall be
deemed to have reasonably withheld its consent in the event any Facility
Mortgagee withholds its consent or otherwise objects to any proposed consent or
approval. With respect only to the matters set forth on Schedule 23.8, if either
                                                        -------------
Tenant or Landlord fails to respond within fifteen (15) days (or such shorter or
longer period of time as may be expressly specified in this Lease) to a request
in the form of a Notice by the other party for a consent or approval, such
consent or approval shall be deemed to have been given.

        23.9    Memorandum of Lease.

                Unless required by Legal Requirements, neither Landlord nor
Tenant shall record this Lease. However, Landlord and Tenant shall promptly,
upon the request of the other, enter into a short form memorandum of this Lease,
in form suitable for recording under the laws of the State in which reference to
this Lease, and all options contained herein, shall be made. The requesting
party shall bear the costs and expenses of recording such memorandum. If a
memorandum of this Lease is required by Legal Requirements to be recorded, the
parties shall share equally the costs and expenses of recording such memorandum.

        23.10   Notices.

                (a)     Any and all notices, demands, consents, approvals,
offers, elections and other communications required or permitted under this
Lease shall be deemed adequately given if in writing and the same shall be
delivered either in hand, by telecopier with computer generated acknowledgment
of receipt, or by mail or Federal Express or similar expedited commercial
carrier, addressed to the recipient of the notice, postpaid and certified with
return receipt requested (if by mail), or with all freight charges prepaid (if
by Federal Express or similar carrier).

                (b)     All notices required or permitted to be sent hereunder
shall be deemed to have been given for all purposes of this Lease upon the date

other cases, upon the date of receipt or refusal, except that whenever under

                                   ARTICLE 24
            LEASEHOLD INTEREST PURCHASE RIGHTS; EFFECT OF TERMINATION

        24.1    Landlord's Right to Purchase or Cause an Affiliate to Purchase
Tenant's Leasehold Interest upon Sale.

                (a) In the event Landlord enters into a bona fide contract to
sell the Leased Property to a non-Affiliate, Landlord may purchase or cause an
Affiliate to purchase Tenant's interest in this Lease by giving not less than
sixty (60) days prior Notice to Tenant of Landlord's election to purchase or to
cause an Affiliate to purchase Tenant's interest in this Lease concurrently with
or immediately prior to the closing under such contract. Landlord, in the event
it enters into a bona fide contract to sell the Leased Property to a
non-Affiliate, and subject to the restrictions set forth in Section 20.4, shall
alternatively be permitted to transfer the Leased Property subject to the Lease,
provided, however, that the parties shall make such reasonable modifications, if
any, hereto as shall be necessary or appropriate in connection with such
transfer, including, without limitation, termination or modification of the
Related Agreements and/or the Asset Management Agreement as they relate to this
Lease, but no amendment hereto shall (i) increase Tenant's rental obligations or
other financial obligations hereunder, (ii) have a material adverse effect upon
Tenant's rights hereunder, (iii) materially increase Tenant's non-economic
obligations hereunder, or (iv) decrease Landlord's obligations hereunder; and
provided further that in such event Landlord shall not, without the consent of
Tenant, transfer the Leased Property or any interest therein to any Person which
(A) does not have sufficient financial resources and liquidity to fulfill
"Owner's" obligations under the Management Agreement and Landlord's obligations
under this Lease, or (B) who has been, or is in control of, controlled by or
under common control with Persons who have been, convicted of felonies involving
moral turpitude in any state or federal court.

                (b) The purchase price for Landlord's (or Landlord's
Affiliate's) purchase of Tenant's leasehold estate under this Article 24 shall
be payable at closing in cash and shall be an amount equal to the lesser of (A)
the Fair Market Value of Tenant's leasehold estate hereunder (excluding any
Renewal Term, exercised or unexercised) as of such closing or (B) the purchase
price, reduced by all amounts reflected as deductions for federal income tax
purposes for such purchase price, as of such closing, allocated to the purchase

                                      -98-

by TRS of the direct or indirect ownership interest in Tenant (as derived from
the original purchase price for the ownership interest in Tenant set forth on
Schedule C of that certain Acquisition and Exchange Agreement, entered into
among Crestline Capital Corporation, a Delaware corporation, TRS and various
Affiliates of such parties, and dated as of November 13, 2000). Alternatively,
in lieu of payment of the purchase price at such closing, at Landlord's
election, Landlord shall have the right, exercisable not more than one (1) year
prior to the anticipated closing date and in any event not later than sixty (60)
days prior to the closing of such sale, to offer to lease to Tenant, pursuant to
one or more leases, one or more substitute hotel facilities (a "Comparable
Lease") that (A) are comparable, in Tenant's commercially reasonable judgment,
to the average quality of the properties leased pursuant to the Other Leases,
taking into consideration the age, physical condition, location and other
relevant factors, and (B) would create for Tenant leasehold estates having an
aggregate Fair Market Value as to that portion of its term equal to the
remaining Term (excluding any Renewal Term, whether exercised or unexercised)
hereunder of no less than the Fair Market Value of the remaining Term hereunder
(excluding any Renewal Term, whether exercised or unexercised), both such values
to be determined as of the closing of the sale of the Leased Property. It is the
intent of the parties that the Comparable Lease shall result in substantially
the same ratio between Tenant's Operating Profit and Rent as then exists under
this Lease for the Fiscal Year immediately preceding the sale. For the purposes
of determining the Fair Market Value for purposes of this Section 24.1 or
pursuant to any other Section of this Lease providing for such compensation of
Tenant upon a Lease termination or purchase of Tenant's leasehold estate, a
discount rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum will be used, and the annual
income for the remainder of the Term (excluding any Renewal Term, whether
exercised or unexercised) will be assumed to be equal to the average Tenant
Operating Profit generated during the three (3) Fiscal Years immediately
preceding the termination date or date of the transfer of Tenant's leasehold
estate, as applicable, or if three (3) Fiscal Years have not elapsed since the
Commencement Date, the average during the preceding Fiscal Years that have
elapsed (with the annual income for each of such Fiscal Years escalated from the
end of each such Fiscal Year to the date of determination at the rate of
inflation before such average is determined), provided that this amount shall be
determined on a pro forma basis if the Leased Property has not operated as a
hotel for at least the preceding twelve (12) months. In the event Landlord and
Tenant are unable to agree upon the Fair Market Value of the original leasehold
estate (excluding any Renewal Term, whether exercised or unexercised) or the
proposed Comparable Lease leasehold estate, it shall be determined by
arbitration pursuant to the procedure set forth in Article 15. The parties agree
that, if Landlord elects to offer to enter into a Comparable Lease, to the
extent that the Fair Market Value of the Comparable Lease is less than the Fair
Market Value of the original leasehold estate, calculated as set forth above,
then Landlord shall compensate Tenant in cash for the deficiency prior to the
effective date of the transfer of Tenant's leasehold estate.

                (c) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 24.1(b), Landlord
shall be entitled to terminate this Lease in connection with a sale or other
transfer of the Leased Property to an unrelated Person or a Person in which Host
O.P. owns, directly or indirectly, less than two thirds of the equity interests,
without payment of any termination fee, by giving not less than sixty (60) days
prior written Notice to Tenant, provided that the landlords under the Other
Leases (excluding this Lease and the leases applicable to

                                      -99-

<PAGE>
 
properties commonly known as Minneapolis, MN (Airport/Bloomington), Denver, CO
(Southeast), and Saddle Brook, NJ) relating to an aggregate of fewer than twelve
(12) hotels have elected to terminate such Other Leases (excluding this Lease
and the leases applicable to properties commonly known as Minneapolis, MN
(Airport/Bloomington) Denver, CO (Southeast), and Saddle Brook, NJ) without
payment of a termination fee.

                (d)     Host O.P. agrees to guarantee Landlord's obligation to
pay to Tenant the compensation for (i) termination by a Superior Mortgagee or
Superior Landlord under Section 20.2, (ii) termination of this Lease following a
Casualty pursuant to Section 10.2.3, or (iii) termination of this Lease by
Tenant by reason of Landlord's election not to make an Award available to Tenant
for restoration following a Condemnation pursuant to Section 11.2; provided that
at the time of any such termination Landlord is a wholly owned direct or
indirect subsidiary of Host O.P., and if Landlord is then partially owned,
directly or indirectly, by Host O.P., Host O.P. shall guaranty that portion of
such compensation that represents the same percentage of the total compensation
payable as Host O.P.'s direct or indirect percentage ownership interest in
Landlord.

        24.2    [Intentionally Omitted.]

        24.3    [Intentionally Omitted.]

        24.4    Effect of Termination.

                Effective upon the date of closing of the sale of Tenant's
interest in this Lease or upon the termination date as set forth in any Notice
provided by the terminating party, Tenant's rights and obligations under this
Lease shall terminate and be of no further force and effect (and, if this Lease
is terminated, Landlord's rights and obligations hereunder shall likewise
terminate) except as to any obligations of the parties existing as of such date
that survive termination of this Lease or transfer of Tenant's leasehold
interest under this Lease, and all Rent, including Percentage Rent and
Additional Charges, shall be adjusted as of the closing or termination date.

                                     FORM OF
                       WORKING CAPITAL NOTE AND AGREEMENT


                  This Working Capital Note and Agreement (this "Note and
Agreement") is made as of the ____ day of _____, 199___, by __________________,
a _____________________ (the "Maker"), and _______________________, a
__________________ (the "Holder").

                  WHEREAS, the Maker and the Holder are parties to that certain
Lease Agreement, dated as of _______________, 1998 (as the same may be amended,
supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the "Lease");

                  WHEREAS, pursuant to the Lease, the Holder is selling to the
Maker on the date hereof the Working Capital (as defined in the Lease) existing
as of the Commencement Date (as defined in the Lease) of the Lease (the "Initial
Working Capital");

                  WHEREAS, the parties desire to enter into this Note and
Agreement for the purpose, among others, of evidencing the obligation of the
Maker to pay to the Holder the purchase price of the Initial Working Capital,
together with interest thereon, as more fully hereinafter set forth;

                  NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and the
agreements hereinafter set forth, the parties hereto hereby agree as follows:

                  1. FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the Maker promises to pay to the order
of the Holder, at the address specified on Schedule A attached hereto ("Schedule
                                           ----------                   --------
A"), or at such other place as the Holder of this Note and Agreement may from
-
time to time designate, the principal amount specified on Schedule A (the
                                                          ----------
"Principal Amount"), together with interest on the Principal Amount from the
date hereof until paid in full.

                  Such interest shall accrue at the rate, be calculated in the
manner, and be due and payable at the times, provided in Schedule A. All
                                                         ----------
interest payments shall be in cash, except as otherwise provided in the next
paragraph.

                  The Principal Amount and all accrued and unpaid interest
thereon shall be due and payable in full, in the manner set forth hereinbelow,
upon the expiration or earlier termination of the Lease for any reason
(including, without limitation, a termination of the Lease by the Facility
Mortgagee (as defined in the Lease) in accordance with the terms of the Lease or
this Note and Agreement). The date on which such expiration or termination
occurs is sometimes hereinafter referred to as the "Maturity Date." Payment of
the Principal Amount and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon shall be made
as follows: (i) the Maker shall assign, transfer and deliver to the Holder title
to all Working Capital owned by the Maker on the Maturity Date by means of one
or more written instruments reasonably satisfactory in form and content to the
Holder; and (ii) to the extent that the Principal Amount and all accrued and
unpaid interest thereon exceeds the fair market value of such Working Capital so
assigned, transferred and delivered by the Maker to the Holder (which the Maker
and the Holder agree shall be equal to the book value of such 

<PAGE>
 
Working Capital, after taking into account any depreciation as of the Maturity
Date) (the "Fair Market Value"), the Maker shall pay to the Holder on the
Maturity Date an amount in cash equal to the amount of such excess (the "Maker
True-Up Amount"). Title to the Working Capital so assigned, transferred and
delivered to the Holder shall be free and clear of any security interests, liens
and other encumbrances of any nature whatsoever created by the Maker or arising
in respect of any obligation of the Maker or arising by reason of any act or
omission of the Maker.

                  All payments of cash hereunder shall be made in lawful money
of the United States of America and, except as otherwise provided in a written
agreement between the Maker and the Holder, without offset.

                  This Note and Agreement may not be prepaid in whole or in
part.

                  The occurrence of one or more of the following events shall
constitute an event of default ("Event of Default") hereunder: (i) the failure
to make any payment in cash of interest hereunder when due on any interest
payment date (other than the Maturity Date) if such failure continues for a
period of 10 days after the due date therefor, or (ii) the failure to make any
payment (in cash or in kind, as applicable) of all or any portion of the
Principal Amount and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon on the Maturity
Date.

                  Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Holder shall
have the option to terminate the Lease. In addition, the interest rate otherwise
applicable pursuant to Schedule A shall be increased by two hundred basis points
                       ----------
(two (2) percentage points (2%)) per annum from the date of the Event of Default
until the date on which all obligations of the Maker pursuant to this Note and
Agreement are paid (in cash or in kind, as applicable) in full. The rights and
remedies provided in this paragraph are in addition to, and not in limitation
of, any other rights and remedies that the Holder may have with respect to an
Event of Default; it being agreed that all such rights and remedies shall be
cumulative.

                  The Maker promises to pay all reasonable costs and expenses
(including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements)
incurred by Holder in connection with the collection or enforcement hereof.

                  The Maker hereby waives presentment, protest, demand, notice
of dishonor and all other notices, and all defenses and pleas on the grounds of
any extension or extensions of the time of payments or the due date of this Note
and Agreement, before or after maturity, with or without notice. No renewal or
extension of this Note and Agreement, and no delay in enforcement of this Note
and Agreement or in exercising any right or power hereunder, shall affect the
liability of the Maker.

                  Whenever used herein, the words "Maker" and "Holder" shall be
deemed to include their respective successors and assigns.

                  2. In the event the Maker has satisfied all of its obligations
pursuant to Section 1 hereof and the Fair Market Value exceeds the Principal
Amount and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, the Holder shall pay to the
Maker on the Maturity Date an amount in cash equal to the amount of such excess
(the "Holder True-Up Amount").

                  3. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth above,
in the event that the Lease is terminated by the Facility Mortgagee pursuant to
the terms thereof, the Maker agrees that it shall transfer title to the Working
Capital owned by it on the Maturity Date (and pay any Maker True-Up Amount
payable by it under Section 1 hereof) directly to the Facility Mortgagee or its
designee and that it shall look only to Host Marriott, L.P., a Delaware limited
partnership, for payment of any Holder True-Up Amount payable pursuant to
Section 2 hereof.

                  4. This Note and Agreement shall be governed by and construed
under and in accordance with the laws of the State of Maryland (but not
including the choice of law rules of such jurisdiction).

                  IN WITNESS WHEREOF, each of the parties hereto has caused this
Note and Agreement to be duly executed on its behalf by its duly authorized
representative on the date first set forth above.

                       PROVISIONS RELATING TO EXCESS FF&E


                (a)     This Schedule 22.2 is intended to insure that all of the
                             -------------
rent payable under this Lease qualifies as "rents from real property" within the
meaning of Section 856(d) of the Code or any similar or successor provisions
thereto. In furtherance of such purpose, the parties have agreed to the terms
set forth in the following paragraphs of this Schedule 22.2 with the objective
                                              -------------
that, anything contained in this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding, the
average of the adjusted tax basis of the items of "personal property" (within
the meaning of Section 856(d)(i)(C) of the Code) that are leased to Tenant under
this Lease at the beginning and at the end of any calendar year shall not exceed
fifteen percent (15%) of the average of the aggregate adjusted tax bases of the
Leased Property at the beginning and at the end of each such calendar year (the
"FF&E Limitation"). The provisions contained in the following paragraphs shall
be interpreted in a manner consistent with the intent and objective described
above (it being understood that this paragraph constitutes a statement of the
parties' mutual intent only and that the failure to achieve such objective,
absent any Default or Event of Default under the other paragraphs of this
Schedule 22.2 or any other provisions of this Lease, shall not constitute a
-------------
Default or an Event of Default hereunder). [In order to avoid exceeding the FF&E
Limitation at the commencement of this Lease, Tenant has entered into an Excess
FF&E Lease (as defined below) with Host Subsidiary for certain Excess FF&E (as
defined below) more specifically described therein that Landlord has sold to
Host Subsidiary and that is now owned by Host Subsidiary (the "Initial FF&E
Lease").]

                (b)     If Landlord reasonably anticipates and gives Notice (an
"Excess FF&E Notice") and reasonably satisfactory evidence to Tenant that the
FF&E Limitation might be exceeded with respect to the Leased Property for any
Fiscal Year, Tenant shall, in accordance with the provisions set forth below and
within sixty (60) days following the delivery of such Excess FF&E Notice, either
(a) purchase from Landlord those items or categories of FF&E to be acquired by
Landlord during such Fiscal Year which are designated in such Excess FF&E Notice
as anticipated to cause Landlord to exceed the FF&E Limitation ("Excess FF&E")
or (b) arrange for Host Subsidiary or another third party (in either case, a
"Third-Party Purchaser") to purchase such Excess FF&E from Landlord and to lease
it to Tenant pursuant to a written lease agreement between such Third-Party
Purchaser and Tenant (an "Excess FF&E Lease") that shall include the terms
specified for an Excess FF&E Lease in this Schedule 22.2 and in Schedule 22.2-A
                                           -------------        ---------------
hereto (it being understood that, without limiting the foregoing, Landlord and
Tenant intend that each Excess FF&E Lease be structured in a manner intended to
avoid the classification of Tenant's obligations thereunder as Capitalized Lease
Obligations).

                (c)     Upon receiving an Excess FF&E Notice, Tenant shall first
offer to Host Subsidiary the opportunity to purchase from Landlord the Excess
FF&E designated therein and to lease same to Tenant pursuant to an Excess FF&E
Lease. Each Excess FF&E Lease with Host Subsidiary shall provide for an annual
rental in an amount equal to the mathematical product of (i) the applicable
Market Leasing Factor (as defined below) for all Excess FF&E subject to such
Excess FF&E Lease multiplied by (ii) the Excess FF&E Value (as defined below) of
the Excess FF&E subject to such Excess FF&E Lease.

<PAGE>
 
                (d)     If Host Subsidiary does not agree to purchase and lease
all the Excess FF&E which is the subject of an Excess FF&E Notice within fifteen
(15) days after the date it receives Tenant's offer with respect thereto, then
Tenant shall either purchase such Excess FF&E from Landlord for Tenant's own
account or shall arrange for another Third-Party Purchaser that has satisfied
the requirements of paragraph (j) of this Schedule 22.2 to purchase such Excess
                                          -------------
FF&E from Landlord and lease it to Tenant pursuant to an Excess FF&E Lease. If a
Third-Party Purchaser that has satisfied the requirements of paragraph (j) of
this Schedule 22.2 shall not have purchased such Excess FF&E from Landlord and
     -------------
leased it to Tenant under an Excess FF&E Lease within forty-five (45) days after
Landlord's delivery of the Excess FF&E Notice relating thereto, then Tenant
shall itself purchase such Excess FF&E from Landlord as and when (but only
after) Landlord takes title to such Excess FF&E. Tenant shall purchase, or shall
cause each Third-Party Purchaser to purchase, Excess FF&E with the purchaser's
own funds.

                (e)     With respect to any Excess FF&E first leased or
purchased by Tenant pursuant to the terms of this Schedule 22.2 during a
                                                  -------------
particular calendar year, Tenant's annual Rent obligations shall be reduced in
the following manner (the "FF&E Adjustment"):

                        (i)     For the calendar year in which such Excess FF&E
        is first placed in service by either Tenant or a Third-Party Purchaser,
        such reduction shall be in an amount (the "First Year FF&E Adjustment")
        equal to the mathematical product of (A) the Market Leasing Factor (as
        defined below) for personal property with an average expected useful
        life corresponding to the weighted average expected useful life (as
        determined in accordance with GAAP and rounded to the nearest whole
        year) of all Excess FF&E first placed in service by Tenant or a
        Third-Party Purchaser during such calendar year (such weighted average,
        the "Applicable Expected Life") times (B) the Excess FF&E Cost (as
        defined below) of all Excess FF&E first placed in service by Tenant or a
        Third-Party Purchaser during such calendar year times (C) either (x)
        100% if Tenant leases such Excess FF&E from Host Subsidiary or (y) 110%
        if Tenant purchases such Excess FF&E or leases such Excess FF&E from a
        Third-Party Purchaser other than Host Subsidiary times (D) 50%;

                        (ii)    For each subsequent calendar year prior to the
        calendar year in which the Applicable Expected Life for such Excess FF&E
        expires, such reduction shall be in an amount equal to twice the First
        Year FF&E Adjustment; and

                        (iii)   For the calendar year in which the Applicable
        Expected Life for such Excess FF&E expires, such reduction shall be in
        an amount equal to the First Year FF&E Adjustment.

It is contemplated that there would be a separate FF&E Adjustment for all Excess
FF&E first placed in service during a single calendar year (with such FF&E
Adjustment extending for a period equal to the lesser of the remaining Term or
the Applicable Expected Life of the Excess FF&E acquired during such calendar
year). The Rent payable by Tenant 

                                      -2-

<PAGE>
 
for each Accounting Period in a calendar year to which one or more FF&E
Adjustments apply shall be reduced by an amount equal to the mathematical
product of (i) the amount of such applicable FF&E Adjustment (or if more than
one FF&E Adjustment apply in such calendar year, the sum of such applicable FF&E
Adjustments) times (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is one and the
denominator of which is the number of Accounting Periods in such calendar year.
The "Excess FF&E Value" of any Excess FF&E shall be the fair market value of
such Excess FF&E (which shall be the purchase price paid by the purchaser
thereof from Landlord, whether such purchaser is Host Subsidiary, another Third
Party Purchaser or Tenant) plus the aggregate amount of out-of-pocket
transactional costs (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees
and any ad valorem, sales, transfer, transaction or similar tax, levy or other
governmental charge) incurred by such purchaser in connection with its purchase
of such Excess FF&E. The "Market Leasing Factor" (with there to be a separate
Market Leasing Factor for each whole number of years of expected useful life of
Excess FF&E) shall be determined by an independent valuation expert, acceptable
to both Landlord and Tenant, who shall determine the Market Leasing Factors
based on the median of the leasing rates of at least three nationally recognized
companies engaged in the business of leasing similar FF&E or personal property
and equipment with average expected useful lives equal to the weighted average
of the expected useful lives set forth on Schedule 22.2-B. The cost of such
                                          ---------------
expert shall be borne by Landlord. The Market Leasing Factors shall take into
account any use taxes and similar Impositions payable by Tenant in connection
with its leasing of Excess FF&E under the relevant Excess FF&E Leases, as well
as the reasonably estimated anticipated out-of-pocket cost (including reasonable
attorneys' and accountants' fees) to Tenant of administering such Excess FF&E
Leases during the Term, so that the economic burden of such Impositions and
administration costs will be borne by Landlord. The "Excess FF&E Cost" of any
Excess FF&E shall be the Excess FF&E Value of such Excess FF&E plus, if Tenant
leases such Excess FF&E from a Third-Party Purchaser, the aggregate amount of
out-of-pocket transactional costs (including, without limitation, reasonable
attorneys' fees and any ad valorem, sales, transfer, transaction or similar tax,
levy or other governmental charge) incurred by Tenant in connection with its
entry into an Excess FF&E Lease of such Excess FF&E in accordance with this
Schedule 22.2.
-------------

        (f)     Landlord and Tenant agree to cause Manager to purchase all
Excess FF&E for Landlord's account with funds from the FF&E Reserve (or with
funds otherwise made available by Landlord). The parties specifically intend
(and Tenant hereby agrees to take such reasonable steps at Landlord's expense as
Landlord may request to insure) that Landlord shall own all Excess FF&E for a
period of time sufficient to permit such Excess FF&E to become subject to any
then existing Liens in favor of the Facility Mortgagee that encumber FF&E
acquired by Landlord; provided, however, that in no event shall Landlord own any
Excess FF&E (i) for more than five (5) Business Days, or (ii) so long that the
FF&E Limitation would be exceeded at the beginning or end of any calendar year.
Without limiting Tenant's obligation under the immediately preceding sentence to
take reasonable steps requested by Landlord (at Landlord's expense) to achieve
the objective set forth therein, it is understood and agreed that the failure to
achieve such objective, absent any Default or Event of Default under the other
provisions of this Schedule 22.2 or any other provisions of this Lease, shall
                   -------------
not constitute a Default or an Event of Default hereunder. Every purchase of
Excess FF&E from Landlord, whether by Tenant or a Third-Party Purchaser, shall
be made expressly subject to any and all Liens encumbering such Excess

                                      -3-

<PAGE>
 
FF&E in favor of any Facility Mortgagee. Following the purchase of any Excess
FF&E by Tenant or a Third-Party Purchaser as contemplated by this Schedule 22.2,
                                                                  -------------
Landlord shall not be considered to own or be the lessor of any of such Excess
FF&E during the Term of this Lease for any purpose, nor shall any of such Excess
FF&E be considered part of the Leased Property, and neither Landlord nor Tenant
shall at any time take a position (in its books and records or otherwise) or
make an assertion inconsistent therewith.

                  (g) In the event that Tenant owns any Excess FF&E at the
expiration or earlier termination of this Lease (including, without limitation,
a termination in connection with a transfer of ownership of the Leased
Property), Landlord shall purchase from Tenant and Tenant shall sell to Landlord
(the "Excess FF&E Repurchase"), on the effective date of such expiration or
termination, all such Excess FF&E (except for any Excess FF&E to which the terms
of paragraph (i) of this Schedule 22.2 apply) for a purchase price equal to the
                         -------------
fair market value (which the parties hereby agree shall not be less than the
adjusted book value) of such Excess FF&E at such time (the "Excess FF&E
Repurchase Price"). The Excess FF&E Repurchase Price shall be payable first by
offset against any Rent owed by Tenant to Landlord as of such time and any
amounts owed by Tenant to Landlord as of such time under the Working Capital
Note, and the remainder (if any) shall be paid by Landlord to Tenant in cash
within ten (10) days after the expiration or termination of this Lease.

                  (h) In the event that Tenant is leasing any Excess FF&E from a
Third-Party Purchaser at the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease
(including, without limitation, a termination resulting in connection with a
transfer of ownership of the Leased Property), Landlord shall purchase and
assume from Tenant, and Tenant shall sell, assign and delegate to Landlord, on
the effective date of such expiration or termination all Tenant's right, title
and interest in and its obligations under each Excess FF&E Lease between Tenant
and such Third-Party Purchaser (an "Excess FF&E Leasehold Interest"). In the
aforesaid transaction (an "Excess FF&E Leasehold Interest Transfer"), the
transfer price for such Excess FF&E Leasehold Interest (the "Excess FF&E
Leasehold Interest Transfer Price") shall be an amount equal to the fair market
value of such Excess FF&E Leasehold Interest at such time (as determined in
accordance with the procedure provided below) and shall be payable (i) by
Landlord if such fair market value is a positive number or (ii) by Tenant if
such fair market value is a negative number. The fair market value of the Excess
FF&E Leasehold Interest shall be determined taking into account all relevant
factors, including the remaining term thereof, the remaining expected useful
life of the Excess FF&E (as determined in accordance with GAAP) subject to such
leasehold, and the leasing rate that would apply, under market conditions at
that time, if a new lease for such Excess FF&E were to be entered into with an
unrelated party for a term equal to the term remaining for such Excess FF&E
Leasehold Interest; provided, however, that in no event shall such fair market
value be less than the adjusted book value of such Excess FF&E Leasehold
Interest. Any amount payable pursuant to this paragraph shall be paid within ten
(10) days after the expiration or termination of this Lease and, if due from
Landlord, shall be paid first by offset against any Rent owed by Tenant to
Landlord as of such time and any amounts owed by Tenant to Landlord as of such
time under the Working Capital Note, and the remainder (if any) shall be paid in
cash.

                  (i) In the event that the Facility Mortgagee forecloses on its
Lien on any Excess FF&E owned by Tenant in connection with, but not separate
from, a foreclosure of the Leased Property, Landlord shall reimburse Tenant for
the loss of such Excess FF&E in an amount equal to the Excess FF&E Repurchase
Price plus any reasonable costs and expenses (including, without limitation,
reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred by Tenant in complying with (but not
contesting) such foreclosure (the "Excess FF&E Reimbursement Amount"). In the
event that the Excess FF&E Reimbursement Amount becomes payable to Tenant
pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence, (i) it shall be paid first by
offsetting any amounts owed by Tenant to Landlord as of such time and the
balance (if any) shall be paid in cash, (ii) Tenant agrees to seek payment of
such cash balance (if any) solely from Host O.P. pursuant to the terms of the
Facility Mortgagee Agreement and shall not make any demand or claim therefor
against Landlord, the Facility Mortgagee, any purchaser in foreclosure or
transferee by deed in lieu of foreclosure or other party claiming under any of
the foregoing, and (iii) Host O.P. agrees to pay any such cash balance.

                  (j) No Third-Party Purchaser shall purchase any Excess FF&E
from Landlord unless and until such Third-Party Purchaser shall have (i) agreed
to purchase such Excess FF&E with cash from such Third-Party Purchaser's own
funds; (ii) agreed to lease such Excess FF&E to Tenant under an Excess FF&E
Lease; and (iii) entered into an agreement with Landlord, the Facility Mortgagee
and Host O.P. pursuant to which (A) the Third-Party Purchaser acknowledges to
the Facility Mortgagee that all Excess FF&E purchased by such Third-Party
Purchaser while the Facility Mortgage is in effect is subject to the Facility
Mortgagee's first-priority Lien (without Third-Party Purchaser assuming any
liability for Landlord's obligations that are secured by or arise under any
Facility Mortgage) and that the Facility Mortgagee's rights and remedies with
respect to such Excess FF&E shall survive and be enforceable with respect
thereto; (B) the Third-Party Purchaser covenants to the Facility Mortgagee to
execute and deliver UCC-1 financing statements prepared by Landlord or any
Facility Mortgagee confirming the foregoing for notice purposes, which UCC-1
financing statements may then be filed by Landlord or the Facility Mortgagee at
Landlord's sole expense; (C) the Third-Party Purchaser covenants not to sell,
lease, transfer or otherwise dispose of such Excess FF&E or any interest
therein, or grant or cause or permit there to exist any lien, charge or
encumbrance with respect thereto, other than the Lien in favor of the Facility
Mortgagee, any other Liens which are the responsibility of Landlord and any Lien
arising pursuant to such agreement or the Excess FF&E Lease, (D) in the event
that this Lease expires or is terminated prior to the expiration or termination
of the Excess FF&E Lease, Landlord agrees to purchase from the Third-Party
Purchaser, and the Third-Party Purchaser agrees to sell to Landlord, all Excess
FF&E owned by the Third-Party Purchaser at that time (other than any Excess FF&E
to which clause (E) below applies) on the same terms as those applicable to the
Excess FF&E Repurchase; and (E) if the Facility Mortgagee forecloses on its Lien
with respect to Excess FF&E owned by the Third-Party Purchaser: (x) Landlord and
Host O.P. agree to reimburse the Third-Party Purchaser for the loss of such
Excess FF&E (such reimbursement to be paid first by offsetting any amounts owed
by the Third-Party Purchaser to Landlord and the balance (if any) to be paid in
cash); (y) Host O.P. agrees to pay the cash balance (if any) of such
reimbursement amount directly to the Third-Party Purchaser without the need for
notice or demand on Landlord; and (z) the Third-Party Purchaser agrees to look
only to Host O.P. for payment of such cash balance.

                  (k) It is the intent of Landlord and Tenant that the leases of
FF&E pursuant to the [Initial FF&E Lease,] any Excess FF&E Lease and this Lease
shall be treated as operating leases and not Capitalized Lease Obligations under
GAAP. Landlord and Tenant agree to cooperate to the extent feasible and
consistent with the terms of this Lease to provide terms for such leases of FF&E
that are so treated.

        the term thereof or the "rejection" thereof following Bankruptcy (as
        defined in Section 10 hereof) of Lessee (a "Lease Termination"), Owner
        shall at the time of or prior to such Lease Termination either (a) elect
        not to take either of the actions described in clause (b) below, in

        (including without limitation (A) provide for an initial term which is
        shorter than the unexpired portion of the Lease term or longer than

        unexpired portion of the Lease term and may contain such revisions to
        Sections 3.1.6.(a)-(f) and 17.3 (or the definitions of any terms used in
        such Sections) to which Owner and the successor lessee shall agree, in
        each case without the prior written consent of Marriott, provided,

        O.P. becomes a successor lessee) and succeed to and assume the rights
        and obligations of Lessee under the Management Agreement and this
        Agreement, the intent being that the relationship between any successor
        lessee, Owner and Marriott be under the same terms and conditions as the
        relationship between Lessee, Owner and Marriott hereunder and under the
        Management Agreement, Operating Agreement (as defined hereunder) and the
        Lease. If any future lessee is not directly or indirectly controlled by
        Host O.P., the Lease shall also include the change as required pursuant
        to the last sentence of Section 9(b) hereof. The succession of the
        Lessee's interests as described in clauses (a) and (b) above are herein
        referred to as a "Lease Succession.""

        directly or indirectly wholly-owned by Host O.P. and is a single purpose
        entity in which Marriott is a non-equity member with rights which are no
        less favorable to Marriott than that which it has as a non-equity member
        in Lessee, and which is organized and operated pursuant to an operating
        agreement not substantially different from the Operating Agreement of
        Lessee dated [Operating Agreement Date] (the "Operating Agreement") or
        otherwise acceptable to Marriott or (ii) an entity which (A) in
        Marriott's reasonable judgment, has sufficient financial resources and
        liquidity to fulfill the obligations of "Owner" under the Management
        Agreement, (B) is not in control of or controlled by Persons who have
        been convicted of felonies in any state or federal court, (C) is not
        engaged (or affiliated with any person or entity engaged) in the

        with Marriott International, Inc. and its successors, (D) shall be a
        single purpose entity in which Marriott is a non-equity member with
        rights which are no less favorable to Marriott than that which it has as
        a non-equity member in Lessee, and which is organized and operated
        pursuant to an operating agreement not substantially different from the
        Operating Agreement or otherwise acceptable to Marriott, and (E) which
        does not result in there being more than six (6) separate, unrelated
        Business Entities being equity members in the single purpose entities
        which are the lessees of hotels owned by Owner and managed by Marriott
        International, Inc., or an affiliate thereof.

        Management Agreement without the prior written consent of Marriott, and
