                                  PART I


ITEM 1.  BUSINESS (dollars in thousands)

GENERAL

     The Company was organized as a Maryland real estate investment trust
on January 15, 1998 to own hotel properties and to continue and expand the
hotel investment activities of Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated (formerly
LaSalle Partners Incorporated) and certain of its affiliates (collectively
"JLL").  From its inception through December 31, 2000, JLL acted as an
external advisor providing management, acquisition, advisory and
administration services pursuant to an Advisory Agreement and Employee
Lease Agreement (collectively the "Advisory Agreement").  Effective
January 1, 2001, the Company terminated the Advisory Agreement and
relationship with LaSalle Hotel Advisors, Inc. (the "Advisor"), a wholly
owned subsidiary of JLL and became self-managed.  As of January 1, 2001,
all of the management and staff of the Advisor have become employees of the
Company.  As of December 31, 2000, the Company owned interests in 13 hotels
with approximately 5,300 guest rooms (the "Hotels") located in eleven
states.  All of the Hotels are leased under participating leases
("Participating Leases") which provide for rent equal to the greater of
base rent ("Base Rent") or participating rent ("Participating Rent") which
is based on fixed percentages of gross hotel revenues.  All of the Hotels
are managed by independent hotel operators ("Hotel Operators"). The Company
is a real estate investment trust ("REIT") as defined in the Internal
Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code").

     Substantially all of the Company's assets are held by, and all of its
operations are conducted through LaSalle Hotel Operating Partnership, L.P.
(the "Operating Partnership").  The Company is the sole general partner
with an approximate 91.6% ownership at December 31, 2000.  At December 31,
2000, continuing investors held, in the aggregate, 1,539,147 Units or an
8.4% limited partnership interest in the Operating Partnership.  The
outstanding Units are redeemable at the option of the holder for a like
number of Common Shares of the Company, or, at the option of the Company,
for the cash equivalent thereof.  On January 1, 2001, JLL and its
affiliates redeemed 964,334 Units resulting in only 574,813 Units or 3.1%
of the Operating Partnership not held by LHO.

     The hotel industry is highly competitive.  Each of the Company's
Hotels is located in a developed area that includes other hotel properties.

The number of competitive hotel properties in a particular area could have
a material adverse effect on occupancy, average daily rate ("ADR") and room
revenue per available room ("RevPAR") of the Hotels.




<PAGE>


     The Company may be competing for investment opportunities with
entities that have substantially greater financial resources than the
Company including lodging companies and other REITs.  These entities
generally may be able to accept more risk than the Company can prudently
manage, including risks with respect to the creditworthiness of a hotel
operator or the geographic proximity of its investments.  Competition
generally may reduce the number of suitable investment opportunities
offered to the Company and increase the bargaining power of property owners
seeking to sell.

     The Company's principal offices are located at 4800 Montgomery Lane,
Suite M25, Bethesda, MD  20814.


FORMATION, INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING AND SUBSEQUENT ACQUISITIONS/DISPOSITIONS

     The Company completed its initial public offering (the "IPO") on
April 29, 1998.  In connection with the IPO, the Company raised gross
proceeds of $255.6 million and net proceeds (after deducting underwriting
discounts and offering expenses) of approximately $234.1 million.  The
Company contributed all of the net proceeds of the IPO to LaSalle Hotel
Operating Partnership, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (the "Operating
Partnership"), in exchange for an approximate 82.6% general and limited
partnership interest in the Operating Partnership.  The Operating
Partnership used the net proceeds from the Company, the issuance of an
additional 0.9 million Common Shares, the issuance of 1.3 million rights to
purchase Common Shares and the issuance of 3.2 million limited partnership
interests ("Units"), representing approximately 17.4% of the Operating
Partnership, to acquire ten upscale and luxury full service hotels (the
"Initial Hotels").

     The Company completed the acquisition of two additional hotel
properties during 1998.  On June 1, 1998, the Company acquired a 95.1%
interest in the 457-room San Diego Paradise Point Resort for an aggregate
purchase price of $73.0 million.  On June 24, 1998, the Company acquired a
100% interest in the 270-room Harborside Hyatt Conference Center & Hotel
for an aggregate purchase price of $73.5 million.

     On June 2, 1999, the Company acquired a 100% interest in the 182-room
Hotel Viking and the adjacent 12-room inn in Newport, Rhode Island (the
"Newport Property") through an indirect subsidiary, LHO Viking Hotel,
L.L.C. (the "Viking Subsidiary LLC").  The Viking Subsidiary LLC is a
limited liability company, of which the Operating Partnership is the sole
member.  The Newport Property was acquired from Bellevue Properties Inc.
("Bellevue"), for an aggregate purchase price of $28.0 million funded with
proceeds from a borrowing under the Company's 1998 Amended Credit Facility.

     On January 25, 2000, the Company entered into a joint venture
arrangement (the "Chicago Hotel Venture") with an institutional investor to
acquire the 1,176-room Chicago Marriott Downtown (the "Chicago Property")
in Chicago, Illinois.  The Company through the Operating Partnership, owns
a 9.9% equity interest in the Chicago Hotel Venture.  The Company will
receive an annual preferred return in addition to its pro rata share of
annual cash flow.  The Company will also have the opportunity to earn an
incentive participation in net sale proceeds based upon the achievement of
certain overall investment returns, in addition to its pro rata share of
net sale or refinancing proceeds.  The Chicago Property was leased to
Chicago 540 Lessee, Inc., in which the Company also owns a 9.9% equity
interest.  The institutional investor owns a 90.1% controlling interest in
both the Chicago 540 Hotel Venture and Chicago 540 Lessee, Inc. Marriott
International continues to operate and manage the Chicago Property.




<PAGE>


     On July 28, 2000, the Operating Partnership reached a definitive
agreement with the shareholders of LaSalle Hotel Lessee, Inc. ("LHL"), to
purchase all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of LHL
for $500.  LHL leases four of the Company's owned hotels, including
Marriott Seaview Resort, LaGuardia Airport Marriott, Omaha Marriott and
Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and Hotel.  Effective January 1, 2001,
LHL is a 100% owned subsidiary of the Company as provided for under the
taxable-REIT subsidiary provisions.  It is currently anticipated that the
cost associated with the transaction will be expensed in the first quarter
of 2001.

     On August 16, 2000, the Company sold Holiday Inn Plaza Park for
$4,600. The asset had been classified as held for sale since December 31,
1999 and was no longer being depreciated.  Based on initial pricing
expectations, the net book value of the asset was reduced by $2,000 to
$5,508 in 1999.  As of June 30, 2000, a purchase and sale agreement had
been entered into with an expected net sales proceeds of $4,242.  As a
result, the Company recognized an additional writedown of $1,266 in the
second quarter of 2000, which included $358 of estimated accrued closing
costs.

     On November 15, 2000, the Company announced its Board of Trustees
voted to become a self-managed company effective January 1, 2001 and
terminate its advisory relationship with the Advisor.  In connection with
the termination, the Advisor will receive $600 for 2001 transition services
and the Company will purchase assets used to operate the Company at book
value.  The entire management team has become employees of LHO and
continues to oversee and manage all activities of the Company under the new
self-managed structure.

     Prior to January 1, 2001, the effective date of the REIT Modernization
Act, in order for the Company to satisfy certain requirements for
qualifications as a REIT, neither it nor the Operating Partnership could
lease or operate any of the hotels in which it invested.  Accordingly, four
of the Company's Hotels were leased to LHL.  The Company owned a 9%
interest in LHL in which the Company together with JLL and LPI Charities, a
charitable corporation organized under the laws of the state of Illinois,
made all material decisions concerning the LHL's business affairs and
operations.  The remaining nine Hotels were and will continue to be leased
to unaffiliated lessees (affiliates of whom also operate these Hotels).

THE ADVISOR

     Upon completion of the IPO, the Company entered into the Advisory
Agreement with the Advisor to provide acquisition, management, advisory and
administrative services to the Company. The initial term of the Advisory
Agreement extended through December 31, 1999, subject to successive,
automatic one year renewals unless terminated according to the terms of the
Advisory Agreement.  The Company's Board of Trustees approved the renewal
of the Advisory Agreement through December 31, 2000.  Under the agreement,
the Company had the ability to terminate the Advisory Agreement without
termination fees or penalties upon notice given of at least 180 days.  On
November 15, 2000, the Company's Board of Trustee's approved the early
termination of the Advisory Agreement and voted to become a self-managed
REIT effective January 1, 2001.  The Company will pay the Advisor $600 for
2001 transition services including waiving the termination notice period,
and providing support and advice through the first quarter of 2001.  In
addition, the Company will purchase at book value, the assets used to
operate the Company.




<PAGE>


GROWTH STRATEGIES

     The Company's primary objectives are to provide a stable stream of
income to its shareholders through increases in distributable cash flow and
to increase long-term total returns to shareholders through appreciation in
the value of its Common Shares.  To achieve these objectives, the Company
seeks to (i) enhance the return from, and the value of, the Company's
Hotels and any additional hotels and (ii) invest in or acquire additional
hotel properties on favorable terms.

     The Company seeks to achieve revenue growth principally through
(i) renovations and/or expansions at certain of the Company's Hotels, 
(ii) acquisitions of full service hotel properties located in convention,
resort, urban and major business markets in the U.S. and abroad, especially
upscale and luxury full service hotels in such markets where the Company
perceives strong demand growth or significant barriers to entry, and (iii)
selective development of hotel properties, particularly upscale and luxury
full service properties in high demand markets where development economics
are favorable.

     The Company intends to acquire additional hotel properties in targeted
markets, consistent with the growth strategies outlined above and which
may:

.     possess unique competitive advantages in the form of location,
physical facilities or other attributes;

.     be available at significant discounts to replacement cost, including
when such discounts result from reduced competition for properties with
long-term management and/or franchise agreements;

.     benefit from brand or franchise conversion, new management,
renovations or redevelopment or other active and aggressive asset
management strategies; or

.     have expansion opportunities.

     The Company believes its acquisition capabilities are enhanced by its
considerable experience, resources and relationships in the hotel industry
specifically and the real estate industry generally.  Additionally, the
Company believes that having multiple independent Hotel Operators creates a
network that will continue to generate significant acquisition
opportunities.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

     The Company is actively marketing Radisson Hotel Tampa for sale. 
Accordingly, the asset was classified as held for sale on December 6, 2000
and depreciation was suspended as of that date.  Based on initial pricing
expectations, the Company recognized a writedown of $11,030, reducing the
net book value of the asset to $17,027 in 2000, which included $200 of
estimated accrued closing costs.  There can be no assurance that real
estate held for sale will be sold.

     On February 26, 2001, the Company terminated the operating lease on
the Hotel Viking with Bellevue Properties, Inc. and entered into a lease
with LHL on essentially the same terms.  Bellevue Properties, Inc. received
$840 in payment relating to termination, tax settlement due under the
Purchase and Sale Agreement and other items.  Noble House Hotel and Resorts
replaced Bellevue Properties, Inc. as manager for the property.




<PAGE>


     On March 1, 2001, the Company redeemed the $40.0 million tax-exempt
Massport Bonds, which had a 10.0% coupon. Proceeds for the redemption were
derived from $37.1 million of tax exempt and $5.4 million of taxable bonds,
each having a 17-year maturity, bearing interest based on a weekly floating
rate and having no principal reductions for the life of the bonds.  Due to
the nature of these bonds, they can be redeemed at any time without
penalty.  The new bonds are secured by letters of credit issued by GE
Capital Corporation.  The letters of credit are collateralized by the
Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and Hotel.  The excess proceeds of
approximately $5,900 were used to pay down borrowings on the 1998 Second
Amended Credit facility.

     On March 8, 2001, the Company acquired a 100% interest in four full-
service hotels with a total of 502 guest rooms in Washington, D.C. for an
aggregate purchase price of approximately $44.0 million.  Each of the four
hotels will be fully renovated, improved and repositioned as unique high-
end, independent boutique hotels.  The Company will undertake the
redevelopment program, currently projected at a total of approximately
$30.0 million, in conjunction with the Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group,
LLC who was also retained to manage and operate the hotel collection. 
These four hotels have operated as the 99-room Canterbury Hotel, located at
1733 N Street, NW; the 82-room Clarion Hampshire House Hotel at 1310 New
Hampshire Avenue, NW; the 137-room Quality Hotel and Suites Downtown at
1315 16th Street, NW; and the 184-room Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel and
Suites, 1430 Rhode Island Avenue, NW.  Originally constructed as apartment
buildings, each hotel features either large rooms or suites.  Upon
completion of the redevelopment program, LaSalle intends to rename each
property and the Kimpton Group will operate each as independent, non-
branded boutique hotels.

HOTEL RENOVATIONS

     The Company believes that its regular program of capital improvements
at its Hotels,  including replacement and refurbishment of furniture,
fixtures, and equipment ("FF&E"), helps maintain and enhance their
competitiveness and maximizes revenue growth under the Participating
Leases.  During the year ended December 31, 2000, the Company spent
approximately $32.5 million on renovations and additional capital
improvements at the Hotels.  Additionally, the Company is planning to spend
approximately $14.0 to $16.0 million on renovations and additional capital
improvements at the Hotels during 2001.

     Under the Participating Leases,  the Company established a reserve for
capital improvements at the Hotels (the "Reserve Funds").  The Reserve
Funds have not been recorded on the books and records of the Company, as
such amounts will be capitalized as incurred.  The amounts obligated under
the Reserve Funds range from 4.0% to 5.5% of the individual Hotel's total
revenues.  The total amount obligated by the Company under the Reserve
Funds was approximately $10.5 million at December 31, 2000, of which $3.4 
million is available in restricted cash reserves for future capital
expenditures.

TAX STATUS

     The Company has elected to be taxed as a REIT under Sections 856
through 860 of the Internal Revenue Code.  As a result, the Company
generally will not be subject to corporate income tax on that portion of
its net income that is currently distributed to shareholders.  A REIT is
subject to a number of highly technical and complex organizational and
operational requirements, including requirements with respect to the nature
of its gross income and assets and a requirement that it currently
distribute at least 90% of its taxable income.  The Company may, however,
be subject to certain state and local taxes on its income and property.

     Effective January 1, 2001, LHL, a 100% owned subsidiary of the
Company, is a taxable-REIT subsidiary ("TRS") and as such is required to
pay income taxes at the applicable rates.




<PAGE>


SEASONALITY

     The Hotels' operations are seasonal.  Eight of the Company's Hotels
maintain higher occupancy rates during the second and third quarters.  The
Marriott Seaview Resort generates a large portion of its revenue from golf
related business and, as a result, revenues fluctuate according to the
season and the weather.  Radisson Hotel Tampa and Le Montrose All Suite
Hotel and Le Meridien Dallas experience their highest occupancies in the
first quarter, while Holiday Inn Beachside Resort and Le Meridien New
Orleans experience their highest occupancies in the first and second
quarters.  This seasonality pattern can be expected to cause fluctuations
in the Company's quarterly lease revenue under the Participating Leases.

ENVIRONMENTAL MATTERS

     Under various federal, state and local laws, ordinances and
regulations, a current or previous owner or operator of real estate may be
liable for the costs of removal or remediation of certain hazardous or
toxic substances on, under, or in such property.  Such laws often impose
liability without regard to whether the owner or operator knew of, or was
responsible  for, the presence of hazardous or toxic substances.  In
addition, the presence of contamination from hazardous or toxic substances,
or the failure to remediate such contaminated property properly, may
adversely affect the owner's ability to borrow using such property as
collateral.  Furthermore, a person who arranges for the disposal or
treatment of a hazardous or toxic substance at a property owned by another,
or who transports such substance to such property, may be liable for the
costs of removal or remediation of such substance released into the
environment at the disposal or treatment facility.  The costs of
remediation or removal of such substances may be substantial, and the
presence of such substances, may adversely affect the owner's ability to
sell such real estate or to borrow using such real estate as collateral. 
In connection with the ownership and operation of the Hotels, the Company,
the Operating Partnership, or the Lessee, as the case may be, may be
potentially liable for such costs.

     Phase I environmental site assessments ("ESAs") have been performed on
all of the Hotels by a qualified independent environmental engineer.  The
purpose of the Phase I ESAs is to identify potential sources of
contamination for which the Company may be responsible and to assess the
status of environmental regulatory compliance.  The Phase I ESAs include
historical reviews of the Hotels, reviews of certain public records,
preliminary investigations of the sites and surrounding properties,
screening for the presence of asbestos-containing materials,
polychlorinated biphenyls, underground storage tanks, and the preparation
and issuance of a written report.  The Phase I ESA's do not include
invasive procedures, such as soil sampling or ground water analysis.

     The ESAs have not revealed any environmental liability or compliance
concerns that the Company believes would have a material adverse effect on
the Company's business, assets, results of operations, or liquidity, nor is
the Company aware of any material environmental liability or concerns. 
Nevertheless, it is possible that the Phase I ESAs did not reveal all
environmental liabilities or compliance concerns or that material
environmental liabilities or compliance concerns exist of which the Company
is currently unaware.  Moreover, no assurance can be given that (i) future
laws, ordinances or regulations will not impose any material environmental
liability or (ii) the current environmental condition of the Hotels will
not be affected by the condition of the properties in the vicinity of the
Hotels (such as the presence of leaking underground storage tanks) or by
third parties unrelated to the Operating Partnership or the Company.




<PAGE>


     The Company believes that its Hotels are in compliance, in all
material respects, with all federal, state and local environmental
ordinances and regulations regarding hazardous or toxic substances and
other environmental matters, the violation of which would have a material
adverse effect on the Company.  The Company has not been notified by any
governmental authority of any material noncompliance, liability or claim
relating to hazardous or toxic substances or other environmental matters in
connection with any of its present properties.

EMPLOYEES

     Effective January 1, 2001, the Company has 19 employees.  Prior to
January 1, 2001, the date the Company became self-managed, the Company had
no employees.  The Advisor managed the day-to-day operations of the
Company.  All persons employed in the day-to-day operations of the
Company's Hotels are employees of the management companies engaged by the
Lessees to operate such hotels.

THE PARTICIPATING LEASES

     Prior to January 1, 2001, the effective date for the REIT
Modernization Act, in order for the Company to qualify as a REIT, neither
the Company nor the Operating Partnership was able to or could operate
hotels or related properties. The Operating Partnership leased the Hotels
to certain lessees ("Lessees") for terms of between six and 11 years (from
commencement) pursuant to separate Participating Leases that provide for
rent equal to the greater of Base Rent or Participating Rent and which set
forth the Lessees' required capitalization and certain other matters.
Unless otherwise noted, each Participating Lease contains the provisions
described below.




<PAGE>


     PARTICIPATING LEASE TERMS.  The Participating Leases have an average
term of approximately 10 years, with expiration dates staggered between the
years 2004 and 2009, subject to earlier termination upon the occurrence of
certain contingencies described in the Participating Leases (including,
particularly, the provisions summarized below under the captions "Damage to
Hotels," "Condemnation of Hotels," "Termination of Participating Leases for
Failure to Meet Performance Goals" and "Termination of Participating Leases
upon Disposition of Hotels"). The variation of the lease terms is intended
to provide the Company with protection from the risk inherent in
simultaneous lease expirations and to align the expiration of certain of
the Participating Leases with the expiration of the applicable franchise
license.

     BASE RENT; PARTICIPATING RENT; ADDITIONAL CHARGES.  Each Participating
Lease requires the applicable Lessee to pay (x) the greater of (i) Base
Rent in a fixed amount (ii) Participating Rent based on certain percentages
of room revenue, food and beverage revenue and telephone and other revenue
at the applicable Hotel, and (y) certain other amounts, including utility
charges, certain impositions and insurance premiums, and interest accrued
on any late payments or charges ("Additional Charges").  Each lease year,
the Base Rent and Participating Rent thresholds are increased to reflect
any increase in the applicable Consumer Price Index published by the Bureau
of Labor Statistics of the United States of America Department of Labor,
U.S. City Average, Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers ("CPI"). 
Lessees are required to pay Base Rent monthly in arrears by the first day
of each calendar month, and Participating Rent is payable quarterly in
arrears by the twentieth day of each fiscal quarter, except for the Hotels
operated by Marriott, the Hotel operated by Hyatt and Hotel Viking, whose
rents are due in accordance with their respective Participating Leases, as
defined.  Participating Rent is calculated based on the year-to-date
departmental receipts as of the end of the preceding fiscal quarter, plus
the prorated amount of each of the applicable departmental thresholds for
the fiscal quarter, or portion thereof, minus the cumulative Participating
Rent previously paid for such fiscal year and the cumulative Base Rent paid
for such fiscal year as of the end of the preceding fiscal quarter.

     Other than real estate and personal property taxes, casualty insurance
including business interruption insurance, ground lease payments, capital
impositions and capital replacements and refurbishments (determined in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP")), which
are obligations of the Company, the Participating Leases require the
Lessees to pay rent, condominium dues, certain insurance, all costs and
expenses, and all utility and other charges incurred in the operation of
the Hotels. The Participating Leases also provide for rent reductions and
abatements in the event of damage or destruction or a partial taking of any
Hotel as described under "Damage to Hotels" and "Condemnation of Hotels."

     The Company has sold certain FF&E to the Lessees of Radisson
Convention Hotel and Le Meridien Dallas at its book value in exchange for
promissory notes receivable ("FF&E Notes") of approximately $1.0 million
and $.6 million, respectively. The FF&E Notes bear interest at 6.0% and
5.6% per annum, respectively, and are payable in monthly installments of
interest only. These FF&E Notes have an initial term of five years unless
extended at the Company's option. Additionally, the Company provided
working capital to each of the Lessees in the aggregate amount of $5.8
million in exchange for a note receivable ("Working Capital Notes"). The
Working Capital Notes bear interest at either 5.6% or 6.0% per annum, and
are payable in monthly installments of interest only. The term of each
Working Capital Note is identical to the term of the related Participating
Lease. Payments made under the FF&E Notes and the Working Capital Notes are
used to reduce the related Participating Lease payments by an equal amount.
The total of the interest income payments and Participating Lease payments
will be equal to the amounts calculated by applying the rent provisions of
the Participating Leases to the revenues of the Hotels.




<PAGE>


     RESERVES.  The Participating Leases for the Hotels obligate the
Company to make funds available for capital improvements at the Hotels
(including the periodic replacement or refurbishment of FF&E)in amounts
ranging from 4.0% to 5.5% of total revenue from the Hotels, with the amount
of such reserve with respect to each hotel representing projected capital
requirements of each hotel.  The Company's obligation to make funds
available for capital improvements has not been recorded on the books and
records of the Company as such amounts are and will be capitalized as
incurred.  Any unexpended amounts will remain the property of the Company
upon termination of the Participating Leases.  The reserve requirements for
the hotels operated by Marriott and Hyatt are contained in certain non-
cancelable operating agreements, which require the reserves for the hotels
operated by Marriott and Hyatt to be maintained through restricted cash
escrows ("FF&E Escrows").  The amounts maintained in the FF&E escrows have
been recorded on the books and records of the Company.  Otherwise, the
Lessees are required, at their expense, to maintain the Hotels in good
order and repair, subject to ordinary wear and tear, and to make all
necessary and appropriate nonstructural, foreseen and unforeseen, and
ordinary and extraordinary repairs (other than capital repairs) which may
be necessary and appropriate to keep the Hotels in good order and repair.

     The Lessees are not obligated to bear the cost of any capital
improvements or capital repairs to the Hotels. With the consent of the
Company, however, the Lessees may utilize funds from the capital
expenditure reserves to make capital additions, modifications or
improvements to the Hotels. All such alterations, replacements and
improvements are subject to all the terms and provisions of the
Participating Leases and will become the property of the Company upon
termination of the Participating Leases. The Company owns substantially all
personal property (other than FF&E which has been sold to the Lessees of
Radisson Convention Hotel and Le Meridien Dallas, inventory, linens and
other nondepreciable personal property) not affixed to, or deemed a part
of, the real estate or improvements on the Hotels, except to the extent
that ownership of such personal property would cause any portion of the
rents under the Participating Leases not to qualify as "rents from real
property" for REIT income test purposes.

     INSURANCE AND PROPERTY TAXES.  The Company is responsible for paying
(i) real estate and personal property taxes on the Hotels, (ii) any ground
lease payments on the Hotels, (iii) casualty insurance on the Hotels, and
(iv) business interruption insurance on the Hotels.  The Lessees are
required to pay for or reimburse the Company for all liability insurance on
the Hotels, with extended coverage, including comprehensive general public
liability, workers' compensation and other insurance appropriate and
customary for properties similar to the Hotels and naming the Company as an
additional insured, where permitted by law.

     EVENTS OF DEFAULT.  Events of Default under the Participating Leases
include, among others, the following: 

      (i)   the failure by a Lessee to pay Base or Participating Rent
within ten days after same is due; or with respect to Radisson Convention
Hotel, ten days after notice of non-payment;

      (ii)  the failure of a Lessee to observe or perform any other term of
a Participating Lease and the continuation of such failure beyond any
applicable cure or grace period; 

      (iii) the failure of a Lessee to pay for required insurance; 

      (iv)  the failure of a Lessee to maintain the Required Minimum Net
Worth or the security deposit, as applicable;




<PAGE>


      (v)   should a Lessee or Operator file a petition for relief or
reorganization or arrangement or any other petition in bankruptcy, for
liquidation or to take advantage of any bankruptcy or insolvency law of any
jurisdiction, or consent to the appointment of a custodian, receiver,
trustee or other similar office with respect to it or any substantial part
of its assets, or take corporate action for the purpose of any of the
foregoing; or if a court or governmental authority of competent
jurisdiction shall enter an order appointing, without consent by the Lessee
or Operator, a custodian, receiver, trustee or other similar officer with
respect to the Lessee or Operator or any substantial part of its assets, or
if an order for relief shall be entered in any case or proceeding for
liquidation or reorganization or otherwise to take advantage of any
bankruptcy or insolvency law of any jurisdiction, or ordering the
dissolution, winding up or liquidation of the Lessee or Operator, or if any
petition for any such relief shall be filed against the Lessee or Operator
and such petition shall not be dismissed within 120 days;

      (vi)  should a Lessee or Operator cause a default beyond applicable
grace periods, if any, under any Franchise Agreement or Operator Agreement
relating to any Hotel; or

      (vii) should a Lessee or Operator voluntarily cease operations of the
Leased Property for more than three (3) days other than by reason of
casualty, condemnation or force majeure.

     In addition, an Event of Default will result in a cross-default of all
other Participating Leases to which the Lessee is a party; except with
respect to a default at Radisson Hotel Tampa, which would not result in a
cross default of Radisson Convention Hotel.

     INDEMNIFICATION.  Under each of the Participating Leases, the Lessees
will indemnify, and are obligated to hold harmless, the Company, the
Advisor and their officers and trustees, from and against all liabilities,
costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses)
incurred by, imposed upon or asserted against the Company or any of them on
account of, among other things, (i) any accident or injury to persons or
property on or about the Hotels, (ii) any misuse by the applicable Lessee
or any of its agents of the leased property, (iii) any environmental
liability caused or resulting from any action or negligence of the Lessee
or Operator (see "Environmental Matters"); (iv) taxes and assessments in
respect of the Hotels (other than real estate and personal property taxes
and income taxes of the Company on income attributable to the Hotels and
capital impositions); (v) the sale or consumption of alcoholic beverages on
or in the real property or improvements thereon; or (vi) the failure to
comply with the terms of the Participating Leases by the Lessee; provided,
however, that such indemnification will not be construed to require the
Lessee to indemnify the Company against the Company's own negligent acts or
misconduct.

     ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLEASING.  The Lessees are not permitted to sublet
all or any part of the Hotels or assign their interest under any of the
Participating Leases, other than to affiliates of certain of the applicable
Lessees, without the prior written consent of the Company. No assignment or
subletting will release a Lessee from any of its obligations under the
Participating Leases unless the Company expressly agrees that the Lessee
shall be released from any of its obligations under the Participating
Leases.




<PAGE>


     DAMAGE TO HOTELS.  In the event of damage to or destruction of any
hotel covered by insurance which then renders the leased property
unsuitable for its intended use and occupancy as a hotel, the Participating
Lease shall terminate, and the Company shall generally be entitled to
retain the proceeds of insurance. In the event that damage to or
destruction of a hotel which is covered by insurance does not render the
leased property unsuitable for its intended use and occupancy as a hotel,
the Company generally will be obligated to repair or restore the hotel to
substantially the same condition as existed immediately prior to such
damage. In the event of damage to or destruction of any hotel that is not
covered by insurance, the Company generally, may either repair, rebuild or
restore the hotel (at the Company's expense) to substantially the same
condition as existed immediately prior to such damage, or terminate the
Participating Lease on the terms and conditions set forth in such
Participating Lease.

     CONDEMNATION OF HOTELS.  In the event of a total condemnation of a
hotel, the relevant Participating Lease will terminate with respect to such

hotel as of the date of taking, and the Company will be entitled to all of
the condemnation award in accordance with the provisions of the
Participating Lease. In the event of a partial taking which does not render
the property unsuitable for its intended use as a hotel, then the Company
generally will be obligated to restore the untaken portion of the property,
and the Company shall contribute the condemnation award to the cost of such
restoration.

     TERMINATION OF PARTICIPATING LEASES.  The Company has the right to
terminate the Participating Lease for a hotel if the hotel fails to meet
certain performance goals, as defined.  Additionally, in the event the
Company enters into an agreement to sell or otherwise transfer a hotel, the
Company, at its option, may terminate the Participating Lease upon 30 days'
notice to the applicable Lessee, subject to certain provisions. 
Additionally, in the event that changes in federal income tax laws allow
the Company or a subsidiary or affiliate to directly operate hotels, the
Company will have the right to terminate all, but not less than all,
Participating Leases with the Lessees.

     OTHER LEASE COVENANTS. Each Lessee has agreed that during the term of
its Participating Lease, the Lessee will not engage in any unrelated
business activities. The owners of each Lessee and their parent entities
have agreed that, for the term of its Participating Lease, any sale of
their interest in such Lessee, or of their hotel management businesses in
general, will subject their interest in the Lessee to a limited fair market
value acquisition right in favor of a designee of the Company. In the event
that the Company exercises this right, any nonselling partner of the Lessee
will have the right to put its interest in the Lessee to the Company's
designee at a price equal to the fair market value of such interest. The
Participating Leases require each Lessee to make available to the Company
unaudited monthly and quarterly and audited annual operating information
for each Hotel leased by such Lessee.

     INVENTORY.  All inventory required in the operation of the hotels is
owned by the applicable Lessee. Upon termination of a related Participating
Lease, the Lessee shall surrender the related hotel together with all such
inventory to the Company.

distribution rates experienced over the past two years in the near term,
unless actual results of operations, economic conditions or other factors
differ from its current expectations.  The declaration of distributions by
the Company is in the sole discretion of the Company's Board of Trustees
and depends on the actual cash flow of the Company, its financial
condition, capital expenditure requirements for the Company's Hotels, the
annual distribution requirements under the REIT provisions of the Code and
such other factors as the Board of Trustees deems relevant.

(1)   Represents advisory fee paid to the Advisor for acquisition,
management, advisory and administrative services provided to the Company. 
The Advisor received an annual base fee up to 5% of the Company's net
operating income, as defined in the Advisory Agreement, and an annual
incentive fee, which prior to January 1, 1999, was limited to 1% of the
Company's prorated pro forma net operating income based on growth in Funds
from Operations ("FFO") per share.

(2)   FFO, as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment
Trusts ("NAREIT"), represents net income applicable to common shareholders
(computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (losses) from debt
restructuring and sales of property (including furniture and equipment),
plus real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding
amortization of deferred financing costs), and after adjustments for
unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.  FFO does not represent
cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, is not
necessarily indicative of cash flow available to fund cash needs and should
not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indication of
performance or to cash flow as a measure of liquidity.  The Company
considers FFO to be an appropriate measure of the performance of an equity
REIT in that such calculation is a measure used by the Company to evaluate
its performance against its peer group and is a basis for making the
determination as to the allocation of its resources and reflects the
Company's ability to meet general operating expenses.  Although FFO has
been computed in accordance with the current NAREIT definition, FFO as
presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by
other REIT's.  FFO may include funds that may not be available for
management's discretionary use due to functional requirements to conserve
funds for capital expenditures and property acquisitions, and other
commitments and uncertainties.

(3)   The Predecessor was formed on December 1, 1995 for the purpose of
acquiring and operating the Radisson Convention Hotel.  On April 29, 1998,
the Predecessor contributed the Radisson Convention Hotel to the Company.

ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
         AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

OVERVIEW

     This report includes certain statements that may be deemed to be
"forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  All statements, other than statements of
historical facts, included in this report that address activities, events
or developments that the Company expects, believes or anticipates will or
may occur in the future, including such matters as future capital
expenditures, distributions and acquisitions (including the amount and
nature thereof), expansion and other development trends of the real estate
industry, business strategies, expansion and growth of the Company's
operations and other such matters are forward-looking statements.  These
statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by the
Company in light of their experience and perceptions of historical trends,
current conditions, expected future developments and other factors they
believe are appropriate.  Such statements are subject to a number of
assumptions, risks and uncertainties, general economic and business
conditions, the business opportunities that may be presented to and pursued
by the Company, changes in laws or regulations and other factors, many of
which are beyond the control of the Company.  Any such statements are not
guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may
differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements.

GENERAL BACKGROUND

     The following discusses: (i) the Company's actual results of
operations for the year ended December 31, 2000 compared to the Company's
actual results of operations for the year ended December 31, 1999, and (ii)
the Company's actual results of operations for the year ended December 31,
1999 compared to the Company's pro forma results of operations for the year
ended December 31, 1998.  This discussion should be read in conjunction
with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto appearing
elsewhere in this form 10-K.  The Company has not included a discussion of
the Predecessor, as its financial information would not be deemed
comparable to the Company.  However, the Predecessor's financial
information has been included in the notes to the consolidated financial
statements.

     The pro forma financial information of the Company is presented as if
(i) the IPO and the related formation transactions and the acquisitions of
the Hotel Viking had been consummated as of January 1, 1999 and (ii) the
acquisition of the Chicago Marriott Downtown had been consummated as of
January 1, 1999.  The pro forma financial information is not necessarily
indicative of what actual results of operations of the Company would have
been assuming (i) the IPO and the related formation transactions and the
subsequent acquisitions of the Hotel Viking had been consummated and the
twelve Hotels had been leased as of January 1, 1999, and (ii) the
acquisition of the Chicago Marriott Downtown had been consummated and the
hotel subsequently leased as of January 1, 1999 nor does it purport to
represent the results of operations for future periods.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

COMPARISON OF THE YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2000 TO THE YEAR ENDED
DECEMBER 31, 1999

     For the year ended December 31, 2000, participating lease revenue
earned by the Company increased by approximately $7.0 million from $76.8
million to $83.8 million.  This increase is primarily attributable to
increased revenues at the San Diego Paradise Point Resort, LaGuardia
Airport Marriott and Radisson Convention Hotel.  These hotels benefitted
from strong group and leisure demand during the year.  San Diego Paradise
Point Resort also benefitted from significant renovations, which were
completed in 1999.  Partly offsetting these increases were decreases in
participating lease revenue caused by decreased occupancy at Le Meridien
Dallas due to reduced citywide demand and the sale of Holiday Inn Plaza
Park during the third quarter of 2000.

     Equity in income from Joint Venture was approximately $1.1 million for
the year ended December 31, 2000.  There was no equity income from Joint
Venture in the results of operations for 1999.

     Depreciation expense increased by approximately $3.7 million from
$25.4 million to $29.1 million due primarily to additional depreciation on
capital improvements which were placed into service during 2000.  In
addition, depreciation expense for the year ended December 31, 2000
includes depreciation taken on the Hotel Viking for the entire year while
for the year ended December 31, 1999 depreciation is included since its
date of acquisition, June 2, 1999.

     Real estate and personal property taxes, insurance and ground rent
increased by approximately $0.4 million from $11.6 million to $12.0
million.  This increase is due primarily to increased real estate taxes at
the Hotels and ground rent for Harborside Hyatt Conference Center & Hotel
and the San Diego Paradise Point Resort.  The increase in ground rent is
attributable to higher revenues at the properties as the ground rent at the
Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and Hotel and the San Diego Paradise
Point Resort is a percentage of revenues.

     General and administrative expense decreased by approximately $0.3
million from $1.3 million to $1.0 million due primarily to lower annual
report costs and a decrease in general legal expense.

     Interest expense increased by approximately $4.9 million from $16.2
million to $21.1 million primarily due to an increase in weighted average
debt outstanding from $234.6 million for 1999 to $273.0 million for 2000. 
The increase in debt outstanding is a result of the purchase of the Hotel
Viking on June 2, 1999 and the investment in the Chicago Hotel Venture
which were financed with borrowings under the 1998 Second Amended Credit
Facility, as well as additional borrowings under the 1998 Second Amended
Credit Facility to finance capital improvements during 2000.  In addition,
the weighted average interest rate increased from 6.9% for 1999 to 7.9% for
2000.  The increase in interest expense was offset by $0.7 million of
capitalized interest, which was primarily a result of the renovation and
expansion of the Hotel Viking and the continuing renovation of the San
Diego Paradise Point Resort during 2000.

     Advisory fees increased by approximately $0.1 million from $3.7
million to $3.8 million due primarily to an increase in base fee for 2000,
offset by a decrease attributable to higher incentive fees for 1999. 
Advisory fees also include $53 and $12 of expense for options granted to
the Advisor for 2000 and 1999, respectively.

     On August 16, 2000, the Company sold Holiday Inn Plaza Park for $4.6
million.  Based on net sales proceeds of $4.2 million, the Company recorded
an additional write-down of $1.3 million for the quarter ended June 30,
2000.  At December 31, 1999, Holiday Inn Plaza Park was held for sale by
the Company.  Based on initial pricing expectations, the net book value of



<PAGE>


the asset was reduced by $2.0 million.  In addition, Radisson Tampa was
held for sale by the company on December 6, 2000.  Based on initial pricing
expectations, the Company recognized a writedown of $11.0 million reducing
the net book value of the asset to $17.0 million for the quarter ended
December 31, 2000, which included $0.2 million of estimated accrued closing
costs.

     Minority interest decreased $2.2 million from $2.7 million to $0.5
million due primarily to a decrease in income before minority interest from
$16.7 million for 1999 to $5.8 million for 2000.  In addition, the weighted
average number of Units outstanding decreased from approximately 3.0
million Units for 1999 to 1.6 million Units for 2000.

     As a result of the foregoing items, net income to common shareholders
decreased approximately $8.6 million from $14.0 million for 1999 to $5.4
million for 2000.


COMPARISON OF THE YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1999 TO THE PRO FORMA YEAR ENDED
DECEMBER 31, 1998

     The Company earned approximately $76.8 million in participating lease
revenue during the year ended December 31, 1999.  For the pro forma year
ended December 31, 1998, participating lease revenues would have been $75.0
million.  This increase is due to increases in participating lease revenues
from the Le Meridien Dallas and Le Meridien New Orleans, which had
increased hotel revenues for the year ended December 31, 1999.  The
Le Meridien hotels benefitted from the renovations, which took place at
each of the respective hotels during 1998.  Participating lease revenues
for the Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and Hotel also increased due to
strong rate and occupancy at the hotel.  These increases were offset by a
decrease in participating lease revenues at the San Diego Paradise Point
Resort in 1999 due to decreased occupancy levels at the hotel resulting
from the significant renovations taking place at the property during the
year ended December 31, 1999.

     Depreciation expense increased to $25.4 million or 13.4% for the year
ended December 31, 1999, compared to depreciation expense for the pro forma
year ended December 31, 1998, which would have been $22.4 million.  This
increase is attributable to the additional depreciation expense incurred on
capital improvements, which were placed into service during 1999.

     Real estate and personal property taxes, insurance and ground rent
increased $0.7 million to $11.6 million for the year ended December 31,
1999 from $10.9 million for the pro forma year ended December 31, 1998. 
This increase is primarily attributable to increased real estate taxes at
the hotels.

     General and administrative expense increased to $1.3 million for the
year ended December 31, 1999, compared to pro forma general and
administrative expense for the year ended December 31, 1999, which would
have been $ 0.7 million.  This increase is attributable to additional
administrative costs incurred for the year ended December 31, 1999.

     Interest expense was  $16.2 million for the year ended December 31,
1999 and the pro forma year ended December 31, 1998.

     Amortization of deferred financing costs increased to $1.0 million for
the year ended December 31, 1999, compared to the comparable pro forma
period in 1998, in which amortization costs would have been $0.8 million. 
This $0.2 million increase is attributable to the amortization in 1999 of
costs incurred in late 1998 for the amendment to the credit facility, as
well as the amortization of financing costs related to 1999 Mortgage Loan
(hereinafter defined).  These costs would not have been incurred in the pro
forma year ended December 31, 1998.




<PAGE>


     Advisory fees for the year ended December 31, 1999 were $3.7 million
compared to $3.8 million for the pro forma year ended December 31, 1998. 
This decrease is attributable to a higher incentive fee for the pro forma
year ended December 31, 1998, offset by an increase in the base fee for the
year ended December 31, 1999.  Advisory fees for the year ended
December 31, 1999 also include $12 of expense for options granted to the
Advisor during 1999.

      At December 31, 1999, Holiday Inn Plaza Park was held for sale by the
Company. Based on initial pricing expectations, the net book value of the
asset was reduced by $ 2.0 million.  This writedown is not included in the
results of operations for the pro forma year ended December 31, 1998.

     Minority interest was $2.7 million for the year ended December 31,
1999 compared to $3.6 million for the pro forma year ended December 31,
1998.  This decrease is primarily attributable to lower income before
minority interest of $4.1 million for the year ended December 31, 1999
versus the pro forma year ended December 31, 1998.

     Net income decreased approximately $3.1 million to $14.0 million for
the year ended December 31, 1999 compared to net income of $17.1 million
for the pro forma year ended December 31, 1998.

     FUNDS FROM OPERATIONS AND EBITDA

     The Company considers Funds From Operations ("FFO") and earnings
before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") to be key
measures of a REIT's performance and should be considered along with, but
not as an alternative to, net income and cash flow as a measure of the
Company's operating performance and liquidity.

     The Company believes that FFO and EBITDA are helpful to investors as a
measure of the performance of an equity REIT because, along with cash flow
from operating activities, financing activities and investing activities,
they provide investors with an indication of the ability of the Company to
incur and service debt, to make capital expenditures and to fund other cash
needs.  The White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of the
National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") in October
1999 defines FFO as net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP),
excluding gains (or losses) from debt restructuring and sales of
properties, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization
(excluding amortization of deferred finance cost) and after comparable
adjustments for the Company's portion of these items related to
unconsolidated entities and joint ventures.  The Company computes FFO in
accordance with standards established by NAREIT which may not be comparable
to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance
with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT
definition differently than the Company.  FFO and EBITDA do not represent
cash generated from operating activities determined by GAAP and should not
be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance
with GAAP) as an indication of the Company's financial performance or to
cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) as
a measure of the Company's liquidity, nor are they indicative of funds
available to fund the Company's cash needs, including its ability to make
cash distributions.  FFO and EBITDA may include funds that may not be
available for management's discretionary use due to functional requirements
to conserve funds for capital expenditures and property acquisitions, and
other commitments and uncertainties.

     The following is a reconciliation between net income and FFO for the
years ended December 31, 2000 and 1999 and for the period from April 29,
1998 (inception) through December 31, 1998 (in thousands, except share
data):

THE HOTELS

     The following table sets forth historical comparative information with
respect to occupancy, average daily rate (ADR) and room revenue per
available room (RevPAR) for the comparable Hotels, the non-comparable
Hotels and total Hotel portfolio for the years ended December 31, 2000 and
1999.

                                          Year Ended December 31,

(a)   Comparable Hotels include all Hotels excluding those in Non-
      Comparable.
(b)   Non-Comparable Hotels represent Hotels which underwent significant
renovations and include the following:

      The Hotel Viking, Harborside Hyatt, Radisson Convention Hotel,
Marriott Seaview Resort, and San Diego Paradise Point Resort in Quarter 1,
The Hotel Viking and San Diego Paradise Point Resort in Quarter 2, Key West
Beachside Resort in Quarter 3, and Key West Beachside Resort, Radisson
Tampa, LeMontrose All-Suite Hotel, The Hotel Viking and San Diego Paradise
Point Resort in Quarter 4.


     The Company's total portfolio RevPAR growth of 7.7% in 2000
significantly outperformed the overall market.  In 2000, the Company saw
substantial RevPAR gains from the hotels which were renovated during 1998
and 1999.  The Company continues to benefit from its ownership of high
quality hotels located in strong markets with high barriers to entry and
its continuing refurbishment and repositioning programs.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

     The Company's principal source of cash to meet its cash requirements,
including distributions to shareholders, is its pro rata share of the
Operating Partnership's cash flow from the Participating Leases. Except for
the security deposits required under the Participating Leases, the Lessees'
obligations under the Participating Leases are unsecured and the Lessees'
abilities to make rent payments to the Operating Partnership, and the
Company's liquidity, including its ability to make distributions to
shareholders, will be dependent on the Lessees' abilities to generate
sufficient cash flow from the operations of the Hotels.

     In April 1998, the Company entered into a $200 million senior
unsecured revolving credit facility (the "1998 Credit Facility") to be used
for acquisitions, capital improvements, working capital and general
corporate purposes. The Company amended its 1998 Credit Facility on
October 30, 1998. Under the Amended and Restated Senior Unsecured Credit
Agreement, as amended (the "1998 Amended Credit Facility"), the total
commitment was increased by $35 million, from $200 million to $235 million.



<PAGE>


On November 13, 2000, the Company amended the 1998 Amended Credit Facility.

Under the Second Amended and Restated Senior Unsecured Credit Agreement
(the "1998 Second Amended Credit Facility"), the total commitment was
reduced by $35 million, from $235 million to $200 million.  Borrowings
under the 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility bear interest at floating
rates equal to LIBOR plus an applicable margin or an "Adjusted Base Rate"
plus an applicable margin, at the election of the Company.  For the year
ended December 31, 2000, the weighted average interest rate for borrowings
under the 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility  was approximately 8.1%.  The
Company did not have any Adjusted Base Rate borrowings outstanding at
December 31, 2000.  Additionally, the Company is required to pay an unused
commitment fee which is variable, determined from a ratings or leverage
based pricing matrix, currently set at 25 basis points.  The Company
incurred an unused commitment fee of approximately $0.2 million for each of
the years ended December 31, 2000 and December 31, 1999.  The 1998 Second
Amended Credit Facility matures on December 31, 2003 and contains certain
financial covenants relating to debt service coverage, market value net
worth and total funded indebtedness.

     In conjunction with the June 1998 acquisition of the Harborside Hyatt
Conference Center and Hotel, the Company assumed $40 million of special
project revenue bonds ("Massport Bonds") previously issued under the loan
and trust agreement with the Massachusetts Port Authority ("Massport"), as
amended ("Massport Bond Agreement").  In conjunction with the Massport
Bonds, the Company recorded a premium of $3.5 million, of which $0.3
million remains unamortized at December 31, 2000.  The Massport Bonds are
collateralized by the leasehold improvements and bear interest at 10.0% per
annum through the date of maturity, March 1, 2026.  Interest payments are
due semiannually on March 1 and September 1.  Interest expense, net of the
premium amortization totaled $2.7 million for each of the years ended
December 31, 2000 and December 31, 1999.  The Massport Bonds shall be
redeemed in part commencing March 1, 2001 and annually until March 1, 2026,
at which time the remaining principal and any accrued interest thereon is
due in full.  The Company has the option to prepay the Massport Bonds in
full beginning March 1, 2001 subject to a prepayment penalty which varies
depending on the date of prepayment.  On March 1, 2001, the Company
redeemed the $40.0 million tax-exempt Massport Bonds, which had a 10.0%
coupon. Proceeds for the redemption were derived from $37.1 million of tax
exempt and $5.4 million of taxable bonds, each having a 17-year maturity,
bearing interest based on a weekly floating rate and having no principal
reductions for the life of the bonds.  Due to the nature of these bonds,
they can be redeemed at any time without penalty.  The new bonds are
secured by letters of credit issued by GE Capital Corporation.  The letters
of credit are collateralized by the Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and
Hotel.  The excess proceeds of approximately $5,900 were used to pay down
borrowings on the 1998 Second Amended Credit facility.

     On July 29, 1999, the Company entered into a $46.5 million mortgage
loan (the "1999 Mortgage Loan").  The loan is subject to a fixed interest
rate of 8.1% and requires interest and principal payments based on a 25-
year amortization schedule.  The 1999 Mortgage Loan matures on July 31,
2009 and is collateralized by the Radisson Convention Hotel located in
Bloomington, Minnesota and the Le Meridien Dallas.  Interest expense for
the year ended December 31, 2000 and for the period from July 29, 1999
through December 31, 1999 was $3.7 and $1.6 million, respectively.  The
1999 Mortgage Loan had a balance of $45.7 million at December 31, 2000.

     On July 27, 2000, the Company, entered into three ten-year mortgage
loans totaling $74.5 million (the "2000 Mortgage Loans").  The loans are
subject to a fixed interest rate of 8.08% and require interest and
principal payments based on a 27-year amortization schedule.  The 2000
Mortgage Loans are secured by the Le Montrose All-Suite Hotel located in
West Hollywood, California, Le Meridien New Orleans and the Key West
Beachside Resort.  Interest expense for the period from July 27, 2000
through December 31, 2000 was $2.6 million.  The 2000 Mortgage Loans had a
balance of $74.3 million at December 31, 2000.




<PAGE>


     At December 31, 2000, the Company had approximately $1.4 million of
cash and cash equivalents and had $113.5 million outstanding under its 1998
Second Amended Credit Facility.

     Net cash provided by operating activities was approximately $40.1
million for the year ended December 31, 2000 primarily due to the
collections of Participation Lease revenues during 2000, which was offset
by payments for real estate taxes, personal property taxes, interest
expense, insurance, ground rent and the Advisory Fee.

     Net cash used in investing activities was approximately $31.8 million
for the year ended December 31, 2000 primarily due to capital improvement
expenditures at the Hotels.

     Net cash used in financing activities was approximately $9.2 million
for the year ended December 31, 2000 primarily attributable to repayments
on borrowings under the 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility and the payment
of distributions to the common shareholders and unit holders, offset by net
proceeds from the 2000 Mortgage Loans and borrowings under the 1998 Second
Amended Credit Facility.

     The Company's policy is to incur debt only if upon such incurrence the
Company's total funded indebtedness would not exceed 50% of "Aggregate
Asset Value." For purposes of this policy, Aggregate Asset Value is defined
as the sum of (a) for all the Company's properties owned for more than four
quarters ("Seasoned Properties"), the EBITDA (reduced by the aggregate FF&E
reserves for the relevant period in respect of the Seasoned Properties) of
the Seasoned Properties for the preceding four quarters times 10, (b) for
all Properties owned for less than four quarters ("New Properties"), the
investment amount (which shall include the purchase price, including
assumed indebtedness, and all acquisition costs) of the New Properties and
95% of all the capital expenditures with respect to the New Properties,
(c) liquid investments, and (d) investments in unconsolidated entities. 
The Board of Trustees can change this policy at any time without the
approval of the common shareholders.

     The Company has considered its short-term (one year or less) liquidity
needs and the adequacy of its estimated cash flow from operations and other
expected liquidity sources to meet these needs.  The Company believes that
its principal short-term liquidity needs are to fund normal recurring
expenses, debt service requirements and the minimum distribution required
to maintain the Company's REIT qualification under the Code.  The Company
anticipates that these needs will be met with cash flows provided by
operating activities.  The Company has also considered capital improvements
and property acquisitions as short-term needs that will be funded either
with cash flows provided by operating activities, utilizing availability
under the 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility, other indebtedness, or the
issuance of additional equity securities.

     The Company expects to meet long-term (greater than one year)
liquidity requirements such as property acquisitions, scheduled debt
maturities, major renovations, expansions and other nonrecurring capital
improvements through estimated cash flows from operations, long-term
unsecured and secured indebtedness and the issuance of additional equity
securities.  The Company will acquire or develop additional hotel
properties only as suitable opportunities arise, and the Company will not
undertake acquisition or development of properties unless stringent
acquisition/development criteria have been achieved.




<PAGE>


     RESERVE FUNDS

     The Company is obligated to maintain Reserve Funds for capital
expenditures at the Hotels, as determined in accordance with the
Participating Leases.  The majority of Reserve Funds have not been recorded
on the books and records of the Company as such amounts will be capitalized
as incurred.  The amounts obligated under the Reserve Funds range from 4.0%
to 5.5% of the individual Hotel's total revenues.  The total amount
obligated by the Company under the Reserve Funds is approximately $10.5
million at December 31, 2000, of which $3.4 million is available in
restricted cash reserves for future capital expenditures.  Purchase orders
and letters of commitment totaling approximately $3.0 million have been
issued for renovations at the Hotels.  The Company has committed to these
projects and anticipates making similar arrangements with the existing
Hotels or any future hotels that it may acquire.

     SUBSEQUENT EVENT

     On January 1, 2001, JLL and its affiliates redeemed 964,334 Units
resulting in 574,813 Units or 3.1% of the Operating Partnership not held by
LHO.

     Effective January 1, 2001, the Company became a self-managed REIT. 
The Company terminated its advisory relationship with the Advisor in
accordance with the Termination and Services Agreement dated December 28,
2000.  In connection with the termination, the Advisor will receive $600
for 2001 transition services.  The Company purchased assets used to operate
the Company at book value of approximately $302 and paid $50 for
informational technology services.  The entire management team has become
employees of LHO and continues to oversee and manage all activities of the
Company under the new self-managed structure.

     Effective January 1, 2001, the Company purchased all of the issued and
outstanding shares of capital stock of LHL for $500 in accordance with the
Stock Purchase Agreement dated July 28, 2000.  LHL leases four of the
Company's owned hotels, including Marriott Seaview Resort, LaGuardia
Airport Marriott, Omaha Marriott and Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and
Hotel.  Effective January 1, 2001, LHL is a 100% owned subsidiary of the
company as provided for under the taxable-REIT subsidiary provisions.  It
is currently anticipated that the cost associated with the transaction will
be expensed in the first quarter of 2001.

     On January 15, 2001, the Company paid its regular fourth quarter
distribution of $0.385 per share/unit on its Common Shares and Units.

     On February 1, 2001, an affiliate of the Advisor exercised 300,000
options.  Proceeds from the options were used to reduce outstanding
borrowings on the 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility.

     On February 26, 2001, the Company terminated the operating lease on
the Viking Hotel with Bellevue Properties, Inc. and entered into a lease
with LHL on essentially the same terms.  Bellevue Properties, Inc. received
$840 in payment relating to termination, tax settlement due under the
Purchase and Sale Agreement and other items.  Noble House Hotel and Resorts
replaced Bellevue Properties, Inc. as manager for the property.

     On March 1, 2001, the Company redeemed the $40.0 million tax-exempt
Massport Bonds, which had a 10.0% coupon. Proceeds for the redemption were
derived from $37.1 million of tax exempt and $5.4 million of taxable bonds,
each having a 17-year maturity, bearing interest based on a weekly floating
rate and having no principal reductions for the life of the bonds.  Due to
the nature of these bonds, they can be redeemed at any time without
penalty.  The new bonds are secured by letters of credit issued by GE
Capital Corporation.  The letters of credit are collateralized by the
Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and Hotel.  The excess proceeds of
approximately $5,900 were used to pay down borrowings on the 1998 Second
Amended Credit facility.

     On March 8, 2001, the Company acquired a 100% interest in four full-
service hotels with a total of 502 guest rooms in Washington, D.C. for an
aggregate purchase price of approximately $44.0 million.  Each of the four
hotels will be fully renovated, improved and repositioned as unique high-
end, independent boutique hotels.  The Company will undertake the
redevelopment program, currently projected at a total of approximately
$30.0 million, in conjunction with the Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group,
LLC who was also retained to manage and operate the hotel collection. 
These four hotels have operated as the 99-room Canterbury Hotel, located at
1733 N Street, NW; the 82-room Clarion Hampshire House Hotel at 1310 New
Hampshire Avenue, NW; the 137-room Quality Hotel and Suites Downtown at
1315 16th Street, NW; and the 184-room Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel and
Suites, 1430 Rhode Island Avenue, NW.  Originally constructed as apartment
buildings, each hotel features either large rooms or suites.  Upon
completion of the redevelopment program, LaSalle intends to rename each
property and the Kimpton Group will operate each as independent, non-
branded boutique hotels.

INFLATION

     The Company's revenues come primarily from the Participating Leases,
thus the Company's revenues will vary based on changes in the revenues at
the Hotels.  Therefore, the Company relies entirely on the performance of
the Hotels and the lessees' abilities to increase revenues to keep pace
with inflation. Operators of hotels can change room rates quickly, but
competitive pressures may limit the Lessees' and their Operators abilities
to raise rates faster than inflation or even at the same rate.

     The Company's expenses are subject to inflation. These expenses
(primarily real estate and personal property taxes and property and
casualty insurance) are expected to grow with the general rate of
inflation, except for instances in which the properties are subject to
periodic real estate tax reassessments.


RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS 

     In June 1998, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued
Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 133, "Accounting for
Derivative Financial Instruments and Hedging Activities" ("SFAS 133"),
subsequently amended by SFAS No. 137 and SFAS No. 138.  This statement,
effective for fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2000, establishes new
accounting and reporting standards requiring that every derivative
instrument, including certain derivative instruments imbedded in other
contracts, be recorded on the balance sheet as either an asset or liability
measured at its fair value.  The statement also requires that the changes
in the derivative's fair value be recognized in earnings unless specific
hedge accounting criteria are met.  Currently, the pronouncement has no
impact on the Company, as the Company does not have any derivative
instruments nor has entered into any hedging activities.

     In December 1999, the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC")
issued Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 101 ("SAB 101"), "Revenue Recognition
in Financial Statements".  In June 2000, the SEC staff amended SAB 101 to
provide registrants with additional time to implement SAB 101.  The SEC
staff determined that a lessor should defer recognition of contingent
rental income until the specified target that triggers the contingent
rental income is achieved.  The Company recognizes lease revenue on an
accrual basis pursuant to the terms of the respective Participating Leases
in which Participating Rent is calculated using quarterly thresholds. 
Accordingly, SAB No. 101 will not have an impact on the Company.

I
TEM 7A.  QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

     The Company is exposed to market risk from changes in interest rates. 
The Company's policy is to manage interest rates through the use of a
combination of fixed and variable rate debt.  The Company's interest rate
risk management objective is to limit the impact of interest rate changes
on earnings and cash flows and to lower its overall borrowing costs.  To
achieve these objectives, the Company borrows at a combination of fixed and
variable rates.

     In 1998, the Company obtained the 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility,
which provides for a maximum borrowing amount of up to $200 million. 
Borrowings under the 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility bear interest at
variable market rates.  At December 31, 2000, the Company's outstanding
borrowings under the 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility were $113.5
million.  The weighted average interest rate under the facility for the
years ended December 31, 2000 and December 31, 1999 was 8.1% and 6.8%
respectively.  A .25% change in interest rates would have changed interest
expense by $0.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2000.  This change
is based upon the weighted average borrowings under the 1998 Second Amended
Credit Facility for the year ended December 31, 2000, which were $154.4
million.

     At December 31, 2000, the Company also had outstanding bonds payable
of $40.3 million, of which $40.0 million represents the principal balance
of the bonds and the remaining $0.3 million represents unamortized premium.

The bonds bear interest at a fixed rate.  For fixed rate debt, changes in
interest rates generally affect the fair value of the debt, but not the
earnings or cash flows of the Company.  Changes in the fair market value of
fixed rate debt generally will not have a significant impact on the
Company, unless the Company is required to refinance such debt.  At
December 31, 2000, the carrying value of the bonds approximated their fair
value.  On March 1, 2001, the Company redeemed the $40.0 million tax-exempt
Massport Bonds, which had a 10.0% coupon.  Proceeds for the redemption were
derived from $37.1 million of tax-exempt and $5.4 million of taxable bonds,
each having a 17-year maturity, bearing interest based on a weekly floating
rate and having no principal reductions for the life of the bonds.  Due to
the nature of these bonds, they can be redeemed at any time without
penalty.  The new bonds are secured by letters of credit issued by GE
Capital Corporation.  The letters of credit are collateralized by the
Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and Hotel.  The excess proceeds of
approximately $5,900 were used to pay down borrowings on the 1998 Second
Amended Credit Facility.

     In 1999, the Company entered into a $46.5 million mortgage loan (the
"1999 Mortgage Loan").  The loan is subject to a fixed interest rate of
8.1%, matures on July 31, 2009 and requires interest and principal payments
based on a 25-year amortization schedule.  At December 31, 2000, the 1999
Mortgage Loan had a balance of $45.7 million.  At December 31, 2000, the
carrying value of the 1999 Mortgage Loan approximated its fair value.

     On July 27, 2000, the Company entered into three ten-year mortgage
loans totaling $74.5 million (the "2000 Mortgage Loans").  The loans are
subject to a fixed interest rate of 8.08% and require interest and
principal payments based on a 27-year amortization schedule.  At
December 31, 2000, the 2000 Mortgage Loans had a balance of $74.3 million. 
At December 31, 2000, the carrying value of the 2000 Mortgage Loans
approximated its fair value.

                       INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT



To the Shareholders and Board of Trustees of
LaSalle Hotel Properties:


     We have audited the consolidated financial statements of LaSalle Hotel
Properties as listed in the accompanying index.  In connection with our
audits of the consolidated financial statements, we also have audited the
financial statement schedule as listed in the accompanying index.  These
consolidated financial statements and financial statement schedule are the
responsibility of the Company's management.  Our responsibility is to
express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements and financial
statement schedule based on our audits.

     We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards
generally accepted in the United States of America.  Those standards
require that we plan and perform the audit 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
LaSalle Hotel Properties as of December 31, 2000 and 1999, and the results
of their operations and their cash flows for the years ended December 31,
2000 and 1999 and for the period from April 29, 1998 (inception) through
December 31, 1998 in conformity with accounting principles generally
accepted in the United States of America.  Also in our opinion, the related
financial statement schedule, when considered in relation to the basic
consolidated financial statements taken as a whole, presents fairly, in all
material respects, the information set forth therein.





                                     KPMG LLP

                         LASALLE HOTEL PROPERTIES

                NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

               (Dollars in thousands, expect per share data)


1.   ORGANIZATION AND INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING

     LaSalle Hotel Properties (the "Company") was organized in the state of
Maryland on January 15, 1998.  The Company is a real estate investment
trust ("REIT") as defined in the Internal Revenue Code.  The Company was
formed to own hotel properties and to continue and expand the hotel
investment activities of Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated (formerly LaSalle
Partners Incorporated) and certain of its affiliates (collectively "JLL"). 
On April 23, 1998, the Company's Registration Statement on Form S-11 was
declared effective.  The Company had no operations prior to April 29, 1998.

On April 29, 1998, the Company completed an initial public offering (the
"IPO") of 14,200,000 common shares of beneficial interest (the "Common
Shares").  The offering price of all Common Shares sold was $18 per common
share, resulting in gross proceeds of $255,600 and net proceeds (less the
underwriters' discount and offering expenses) of $234,138.  The Company
contributed all of the net proceeds of the IPO to LaSalle Hotel Operating
Partnership, L.P., a limited partnership (the "Operating Partnership"), in
exchange for an approximate 82.6% general partnership interest in the
Operating Partnership.  The Operating Partnership used the net proceeds
from the Company, the issuance of additional Common Shares of the Company,
the issuance of rights to purchase Common Shares and the issuance of
limited partnership interests ("Units"), representing an approximate 17.4%
interest in the Operating Partnership, to acquire ten upscale and luxury
full service hotels (the "Initial Hotels").

     As of December 31, 2000, the Company owned interests in 13 hotels with
approximately 5,300 guest rooms (the "Hotels") located in eleven states. 
The Company owns 100% equity interests in 11 of the hotels and a 95.1%
interest in a partnership which owns one hotel and a 9.9% equity interest
in the Chicago Hotel Venture (as defined in Note 4) which also owns one
hotel.  All of the Hotels are leased under participating leases
("Participating Leases") which provide for rent based on hotel revenues and
are managed by independent hotel operators ("Hotel Operators").  Eight of
the Hotels are leased to unaffiliated lessees (affiliates of whom also
operate these hotels) and four of the Hotels are leased to LaSalle Hotel
Lessee, Inc. ("LHL").  As more fully described in Note 4 below, the Hotel
which is owned by the Chicago Hotel Venture is leased to Chicago 540 Lessee
in which the Company also has a 9.9% equity interest.


2.   SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

     BASIS OF PRESENTATION

     The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the
Company, the Operating Partnership and its consolidated subsidiaries and
partnerships.  All significant intercompany balances and transactions have
been eliminated.

     USE OF ESTIMATES

     The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with
accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America
requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the
reported amounts  of certain 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.




<PAGE>


     FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

     Fair value is determined by using available market information and
appropriate valuation methodologies.  The Company's financial instruments
include cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable,
accrued expenses, borrowings against the 1998 Second Amended Credit
Facility, borrowings under the 1999 Mortgage Loan and borrowings under the
2000 Mortgage Loans (all defined in Note 7).  Due to their short
maturities, cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts
payable and accrued expenses are carried at amounts which reasonably
approximate fair value.  As borrowings under the 1998 Second Amended Credit
Facility bear interest at variable market rates, carrying value
approximates market value at December 31, 2000 and 1999.  At December 31,
2000, the carrying value of the 1999 Mortgage Loan and 2000 Mortgage Loans
approximated fair value, as the interest rates associated with the
borrowings approximated current market rates.

     INVESTMENT IN HOTEL PROPERTIES

     Hotel properties are stated at cost and are depreciated using the
straight-line method over estimated useful lives ranging from 27.5-30 years
for buildings and improvements and 5 years for furniture, fixtures and
equipment.

     The Company periodically reviews the carrying value of each Hotel to
determine if circumstances exist indicating an impairment in the carrying
value of the investment in the hotel or that depreciation periods should be
modified.  If facts or circumstances support the possibility of impairment,
the Company will prepare a projection of the undiscounted future cash
flows, without interest charges, of the specific hotel and determine if the
investment in such hotel is recoverable based on the undiscounted future
cash flows.  If impairment is indicated, an adjustment will be made to the
carrying value of the hotel based on discounted future cash flows.  In
1999, the Company recorded a writedown of $2,000 for the Holiday Inn Plaza.

In 2000, the Company recorded an additional writedown of $1,266 for the
Holiday Inn Plaza Park and $11,030 for the Radisson Hotel Tampa (see Note
6).  The Company does not believe that there are any factors or
circumstances indicating impairment of any of its investments in the
remaining twelve Hotels.

     Hotel properties are considered held for sale when actively marketed
and sale is expected to occur within one year.

     INVESTMENTS IN JOINT VENTURE

     Investment in Joint Venture represents the Company's 9.9% equity
interest in Chicago Hotel Venture and Chicago 540 Lessee (as defined in
Note 4).  The Company accounts for its Investment in Joint Ventures under
the equity method of accounting.  Accordingly, the Company carries its
investment at cost, plus its equity in net earnings, less distributions
received since the date of acquisition.  In addition, pursuant to the joint
venture agreement, the Company earns a priority preferred return based on
the net operating cash flow of Chicago Hotel Venture.

     INVESTMENT IN LHL

     The Company owned a 9% interest in LHL in which the Company together
with JLL and LPI Charities, a charitable corporation organized under the
laws of the state of Illinois, made all material decisions concerning the
business affairs and operations.  Accordingly, the Company did not control
LHL and carried its investment at cost, plus its equity in net earnings,
less distributions received since the date of inception.




<PAGE>


     On July 28, 2000, the Operating Partnership reached a definitive
agreement with the shareholders of LHL, to purchase all of the issued and
outstanding shares of capital stock of LHL for $500.  LHL leases four of
the Company's owned hotels, including Marriott Seaview Resort, LaGuardia
Airport Marriott, Omaha Marriott and Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and
Hotel.  Effective January 1, 2001, LHL is a 100% owned subsidiary of the
Company as provided for under the taxable-REIT subsidiary provisions.  It
is currently anticipated that the cost associated with the transaction will
be expensed in the first quarter of 2001.

     CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS

     All highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less
when purchased are considered to be cash equivalents.

     DEFERRED FINANCING FEES

     Deferred financing fees are recorded at cost and are amortized over
the three-year term of the 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility and over the
ten-year terms of the 1999 Mortgage Loan and 2000 Mortgage Loans. 
Accumulated amortization at December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998 was $2,304,
$1,316 and $474, respectively.

     DISTRIBUTIONS

     The Company pays regular quarterly distributions to its shareholders
as directed by the Board of Trustees.  The Company's ability to pay
distributions is dependent on the receipt of distributions from the
Operating Partnership.

     REVENUE RECOGNITION

     The Company recognizes lease revenue on an accrual basis pursuant to
the terms of the respective Participating Leases.  Base and participating
rent is recognized based on quarterly thresholds, pursuant to the lease
agreements (see Note 10).

     MINORITY INTEREST

     Minority interest in the Operating Partnership represents the limited
partners' proportionate share of the equity in the Operating Partnership. 
At December 31, 2000, the aggregate partnership interest held by the
limited partners in the Operating Partnership was approximately 8.4%. 
Income is allocated to minority interest based on the weighted average
percentage ownership throughout the year.  On January 1, 2001, JLL and its
affiliates redeemed 964,334 Units resulting in 574,813 Units or 3.1%
partnership interest held by the limited partners.

     Minority interest in the San Diego Subsidiary Partnership (as defined
in Note 4) represents the limited partner's proportionate share of the
equity in the San Diego Subsidiary Partnership.  Income is allocated to
minority interest based on the terms of the partnership agreement.

     INCOME TAXES

     The Company has elected to be taxed as a REIT under Sections 856
through 860 of the Internal Revenue Code (the "Code").  As a result, the
Company generally will not be subject to Federal corporate income tax on
that portion of its net income that is currently distributed to
shareholders.  Accordingly, no provision for income taxes has been made in
the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

     Effective January 1, 2001, LHL, a 100% owned subsidiary of the Company
is a taxable-REIT subsidiary ("TRS") and as such is required to pay income
taxes at the applicable rates.




<PAGE>


     For federal income tax purposes, the cash distributions paid to
shareholders may be characterized as ordinary income, return of capital
(generally non-taxable) or capital gains.  For 2000, 82.25% of the
Company's distributions were fully taxable as ordinary income, while 17.75%
represented a return of capital.  For 1999, 91.10% of the Company's
distributions were fully taxable as ordinary income, while 8.90%
represented a return of capital.  For 1998, the Company's distributions
were fully taxable as ordinary income.

     EARNINGS PER SHARE

     Basic earnings per share is based on the weighted average number of
common shares outstanding during the period.  Diluted earnings per share is
based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus the
effect of in-the-money stock options.


3.   NOTES RECEIVABLE

     The Company provided working capital to the Affiliated Lessee and the
other lessees in the aggregate amount of $5,834 in exchange for notes
receivable ("Working Capital Notes").  In addition, the Company sold
certain furniture, fixtures and equipment to two of its unaffiliated
lessees in exchange for notes receivable ("FF&E Notes") of $1,583.  Both
the Working Capital Notes and the FF&E Notes are payable in monthly
installments of interest only.  The Working Capital Notes bear interest at
either 5.6% or 6% per annum and have terms identical to the terms of the
related Participating Lease.  The FF&E Notes bear interest at 5.6% and 6.0%
per annum and have an initial term of five years unless extended at the
Company's option.


4.   ACQUISITION/DISPOSITION OF HOTEL PROPERTIES

     The Initial Hotels were previously owned by various limited and
general partnerships (the "Existing Partnerships").  In conjunction with
the IPO and the related formation transactions, the Initial Hotels, except
for Radisson Convention Hotel (previously owned by LRP Bloomington Limited
Partnership), were purchased by the Company from their Existing
Partnerships and were accounted for as purchase transactions.  LRP
Bloomington Limited Partnership, the Existing Partnership that retained the
largest number and percentages of voting rights of the Company after the
formation transactions, was designated as the predecessor (the
"Predecessor") for accounting purposes.  Therefore, the Company recorded a
purchase accounting adjustment in order to account for the Radisson
Convention Hotel using the historical basis of accounting.

     In June 1998, the Company acquired an interest in the San Diego
Princess Resort (the "San Diego Property") through a subsidiary
partnership, LHO Mission Bay Hotel, L.P. (the "San Diego Subsidiary
Partnership").  The San Diego Subsidiary Partnership is a limited
partnership of which the Operating Partnership holds an approximate 95.1%
general partnership interest. The 457-room San Diego Property was renamed
the San Diego Paradise Point Resort.

     The San Diego Property was acquired for an aggregate purchase price of
$73.0 million funded with proceeds from a borrowing under the Company's
1998 Credit Facility (as defined in Note 7) and from the proceeds of the
sale of 112,458 Common Shares to the limited partner of the San Diego
Subsidiary Partnership who operates the San Diego Property pursuant to the
terms of a participating lease.

     Also in June 1998, the Company acquired a 100% interest in the 270-
room Harborside Hyatt Conference Center & Hotel in Boston (the "Boston
Property") through an indirect subsidiary, LHO Harborside Hotel, L.L.C.
(the "Harborside Subsidiary LLC").  The Harborside Subsidiary LLC is a
limited liability company, of which the Operating Partnership is the sole
member.




<PAGE>


     The Boston Property was acquired for an aggregate purchase price of
$73.5 million, which included $40.0 million of tax exempt industrial
revenue bonds to which the Boston Property is no longer subject to.  The
remainder of the purchase price was funded with proceeds from a borrowing
under the Company's 1998 Credit Facility.  Hyatt Hotels Corporation
continues to operate the Boston Property under an existing management
agreement.

     On June 2, 1999, the Company acquired a 100% interest in the 182-room
Hotel Viking and the adjacent 12-room inn in Newport, Rhode Island (the
"Newport Property") through an indirect subsidiary, LHO Viking Hotel,
L.L.C. (the "Viking Subsidiary LLC").  The Viking Subsidiary LLC is a
limited liability company, of which the Operating Partnership is the sole
member.  The Newport Property was acquired from Bellevue Properties Inc.
("Bellevue"), for an aggregate purchase price of $28 million funded with
proceeds from a borrowing under the Company's 1998 Amended Credit Facility.

     On January 25, 2000, the Company entered into a joint venture
arrangement (the "Chicago Hotel Venture") with an institutional investor to
acquire the 1,176-room Chicago Marriott Downtown (the "Chicago Property")
in Chicago, Illinois.  The Company, through the Operating Partnership, owns
a 9.9% equity interest in the Chicago Hotel Venture.  The Company will
receive an annual preferred return in addition to its pro rata share of
annual cash flow.  The Company will also have the opportunity to earn an
incentive participation in net sale proceeds based upon the achievement of
certain overall investment returns, in addition to its pro rata share of
net sale or refinancing proceeds.  The Chicago Property was leased to
Chicago 540 Lessee, Inc., in which the Company also owns a 9.9% equity
interest.  The institutional investor owns a 90.1% controlling interest in
both the Chicago 540 Hotel Venture and Chicago 540 Lessee, Inc. Marriott
International continues to operate and manage the Chicago Property.

     On August 16, 2000, the Company sold Holiday Inn Plaza Park for
$4,600. The asset had been classified as held for sale since December 31,
1999 at which time depreciated was suspended.  Based on initial pricing
expectations, the net book value of the asset was reduced by $2,000 to
$5,508 in 1999.  As of June 30, 2000, a purchase and sale agreement had
been entered into with an expected net sales proceeds of $4,242.  As a
result, the Company recognized an additional writedown of $1,266 in the
second quarter of 2000, which included $358 of estimated accrued closing
costs.

6.   REAL ESTATE HELD FOR SALE

     On August 16, 2000, the Company sold Holiday Inn Plaza Park for
$4,600. The asset had been classified as held for sale since December 31,
1999 at which time depreciated was suspended.  Based on initial pricing
expectations, the net book value of the asset was reduced by $2,000 to
$5,508 in 1999.  As of June 30, 2000, a purchase and sale agreement had
been entered into with an expected net sales proceeds of $4,242.  As a
result, the Company recognized an additional writedown of $1,266 in the
second quarter of 2000, which included $358 of estimated accrued closing
costs.

     The Company is actively marketing Radisson Hotel Tampa for sale. 
Accordingly, the asset was classified as held for sale on December 6, 2000
and will no longer be depreciated subsequent to this date.  Based on
initial pricing expectations, the Company recognized a writedown of $11,030
reducing the net book value of the asset to $17,027 in 2000, which included
$200 of estimated accrued closing costs.  There can be no assurance that
real estate held for sale will be sold.

     Results of operations for the Radisson Hotel Tampa and Holiday Inn
Plaza Park are as follows:

7.   LONG-TERM DEBT

     CREDIT FACILITY

     In April 1998, the Company obtained a three-year commitment for a $200
million senior unsecured revolving credit facility (the "1998 Credit
Facility") to be used for acquisitions, capital improvements, working
capital and general corporate purposes.  The Company amended the 1998
Credit Facility on October 30, 1998.  Under the Amended and Restated Senior
Unsecured Credit Agreement, as amended (the "1998 Amended Credit
Facility"), the commitment was increased by an additional $35 million,
bringing the total commitment under the facility to $235 million.  On
November 13, 2000, the Company amended the 1998 Amended Credit Facility. 
Under the Second Amended and Restated Senior Unsecured Credit Agreement, as
amended (the "1998 Second Amended Credit Facility"), the commitment was
reduced by $35 million, bringing the total commitment under the facility to
$200 million.  The reduction was based on anticipated usage over the life
of the facility.  Borrowings under the 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility
bear interest at floating rates equal to LIBOR plus an applicable margin or
an "Adjusted Base Rate" plus an applicable margin, at the election of the
Company.  For the years ended December 31, 2000 and December 31, 1999, the
weighted average interest rate on borrowings under the 1998 Second Amended
Credit Facility was 8.1% and 6.8%, respectively.  The Company did not have
any Adjusted Base Rate borrowings outstanding at December 31, 2000 or 1999.

Additionally, the Company is required to pay an unused commitment fee which
is variable, determined from a ratings based pricing matrix, currently set
at 25 basis points.  The Company incurred an unused commitment fee of
approximately $200 and $162 for the years ended December 31, 2000 and
December 31, 1999, respectively.  The 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility
matures on December 31, 2003 and contains certain financial covenants
relating to debt service coverage, market value net worth and total funded
indebtedness.  At December 31, 2000 and 1999, the Company had outstanding
borrowings against the 1998 Second Credit Facility of $113,500 and
$164,900, respectively.

     BONDS PAYABLE

     On June 24, 1998 the Company, through the Harborside Subsidiary LLC,
acquired the Boston Property subject to $40,000 of special project revenue
bonds ("Massport Bonds") previously issued under the loan and trust
agreement with the Massachusetts Port Authority ("Massport"), as amended
("Massport Bond Agreement").  In conjunction with the Massport Bonds, the
Company recorded a premium of $3,480, of which $314 remains unamortized at
December 31, 2000.  The Massport Bonds are collateralized by the leasehold
improvements and bear interest at 10.0% per annum through the date of
maturity, March 1, 2026.  Interest payments are due semiannually on March 1
and September 1.  Interest expense, net of the premium amortization, for
the years ended December 31, 2000 and December 31, 1999 totaled $2,743 for
both periods.  The Massport Bonds shall be redeemed in part commencing
March 1, 2001 and annually until March 1, 2026, at which time the remaining
principal and any accrued interest thereon is due in full.  The Company has
the option to prepay the Massport Bonds in full beginning March 1, 2001
subject to a prepayment penalty which varies depending on the date of
prepayment.  Future principal payments are as follows:

           2001. . . . . . . . . . . . .      $   400 
           2002. . . . . . . . . . . . .          400

                                              $40,000 
                                              ======= 

    Under the terms of the Massport Bond Agreement, certain cash reserves
are required to be held in trust for payments of interest, credit
enhancement fees and ground rent.  As of December 31, 2000 and 1999, these
reserves totaled $7,864 and $7,311, respectively, and are included in
Restricted Cash Reserves.

     In addition, the Massport Bond Agreement was supplemented by a credit
enhancement agreement (the "Massport Credit Enhancement Agreement"). 
Pursuant to the Massport Credit Enhancement Agreement, certain funds have
been set aside by Massport to provide additional deficit funding if the
amounts held in trust by the Company are not sufficient to cover the debt
service requirements on the outstanding Massport Bonds.  In consideration
for the Massport Credit Enhancement Agreement, the Company is required to
pay an annual enhancement fee of $150, payable March 1 and September 1.

     On March 1, 2001, the Company redeemed the $40.0 million tax-exempt
Massport Bonds, which had a 10.0% coupon. Proceeds for the redemption were
derived from $37.1 million of tax exempt and $5.4 million of taxable bonds,
each having a 17-year maturity, bearing interest based on a weekly floating
rate and having no principal reductions for the life of the bonds.  Due to
the nature of these bonds, they can be redeemed at any time without
penalty.  The new bonds are secured by letters of credit issued by GE
Capital Corporation.  The letters of credit are collateralized by the
Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and Hotel.  The excess proceeds of
approximately $5,900 were used to pay down borrowings on the 1998 Second
Amended Credit facility.

     MORTGAGE LOANS

     On July 29, 1999, the Company, through the newly formed LHO Financing
Partnership I, L.P. (the "Financing Partnership") entered into a $46,500
mortgage loan (the "1999 Mortgage Loan").  The Financing Partnership is
effectively wholly owned by the Company.  The 1999 Mortgage Loan is secured
by the Radisson Convention Hotel and Le Meridien Dallas.  The loan matures
on July 31, 2009 and does not allow for prepayment prior to January 31,
2009, without penalty.  The loan bears interest at a fixed rate of 8.1% and
requires interest and principal payments based on a 25-year amortization
schedule.  The loan agreement requires the Financing Partnership to hold
funds in escrow for the payment of one half year's insurance and real
estate taxes.  The 1999 Mortgage Loan also requires the Financing
Partnership to maintain a certain debt service coverage ratio.

     The 1999 Mortgage Loan had principal balances of $45,690 and $46,306
at December 31, 2000 and December 31, 1999, respectively.  Future scheduled
debt principal payments at December 31, 2000 are as follows (in thousands):

                                               =======

     On July 27, 2000, the Company, through three newly formed
partnerships, LHO Hollywood LM, L.P., LHO New Orleans LM, L.P., and LHO Key
West HI, L.P. (the "2000 Financing Partnerships"), entered into three ten-
year mortgage loans totaling $74,500 (the "2000 Mortgage Loans").  The 2000
Mortgage Loans are secured by the Le Montrose All-Suite Hotel located in
West Hollywood, California, Le Meridien New Orleans and the Key West
Beachside Resort.  The loans bear interest at a fixed rate of 8.08% and
require interest and principal payments based on a 27-year amortization
schedule. The loan agreements require the 2000 Financing Partnerships to
hold funds in escrow for the payment of one half year's insurance and real
estate taxes and one month's ground rent.  The 2000 Mortgage loans also
require the 2000 Financing Partnerships to maintain certain debt service
coverage ratios.

     The 2000 Mortgage Loans had a principal balance of $74,274 at
December 31, 2000.  Future scheduled debt principal payments at
December 31, 2000 are as follows (in thousands):

8.   SHAREHOLDERS' EQUITY

     COMMON SHARES OF BENEFICIAL INTEREST

     In connection with the acquisition of the Initial Hotels, the Company
issued 912,122 restricted Common Shares to JLL.  The Common Shares were
valued at $18.00 per share or $16,418.  The Company also granted 1,280,569
rights mainly to purchase Common Shares at the exercise price of $18.00 per
share in connection with the acquisition of the Initial Hotels.  Among the
rights which were granted, 457,346 were granted to the Advisor (as defined
in Note 11).  The Advisor may exercise its rights to purchase Common Shares
or Units, at the option of the Company.  The Company has recorded these
rights in shareholders' equity at their fair value on the date of grant,
which was $2,997.  All rights have a one year vesting period and a 10 year
term.  At December 31, 2000, all of the rights were exercisable.

     In connection with the purchase of the San Diego Property (see
Note 4), the sole limited partner in the San Diego Subsidiary Partnership
(which is an affiliate of the hotel operator) acquired 112,458 Common
Shares, from the Company for a purchase price of $2,000.  The purchase and
sale of the Common Shares was a condition to the selection of the affiliate
of the limited partner as operator of the San Diego Property, and the
Common Shares have been pledged to the Operating Partnership to secure the
limited partner's obligations under the related Participating Lease.

     On February 22, 1999, the Company issued 4,995 Common Shares to the
Board of Trustees for their 1998 Compensation.  The annual fee paid to the
Board of Trustees is paid 50% in cash and 50% in Common Shares.  Each
trustee may elect to receive Common Shares in lieu of receiving 50% of
their annual fee in cash.

     On March 4, 1999, pursuant to the advisory agreement, the Company
issued 10,988 Common Shares to the Advisor for the incentive portion of the
1998 advisory fee, in lieu of the $155, which would have otherwise been due
to the Advisor.

     On May 13, 1999, the Company's registration statement on Form S-3
under the Securities Act of 1933 (the "Securities Act"), as amended,
registering $200,000 of Common Shares, Common Share Warrants, Preferred
Shares of Beneficial Interest (the "Preferred Shares") and Depository
Shares representing Preferred Shares was declared effective.

     In connection with the Chicago Hotel Venture and the acquisition of
the Chicago Property (See Note 4), the Company issued 16,667 Units to an
affiliate of the previous owner of the Hotel for consideration valued at
approximately $300.

     On February 14, 2000, the Company issued 6,125 Common Shares to the
non-affiliated members of its Board of Trustees for 1999 compensation.  The
Common Shares were issued in lieu of cash, at the trustee's election. 
These Common Shares were issued under the 1998 Share Option and Incentive
Plan (the "1998 SIP").

     On February 15, 2000, pursuant to the advisory agreement, the Company
issued 31,318 Common Shares to the Advisor for the incentive portion of the
1999 advisory fee, in lieu of the $412, which would have otherwise been due
to the Advisor.

     As of December 31, 2000, the Company has reserved 1,500,000 Common
Shares for future issuance under the 1998 SIP (as defined in Note 12).  The
Company has also reserved a total of 1,280,569 Common Shares for future
issuance pursuant to rights which have been issued and 1,539,147 Common
Shares for issuance upon the conversion of the Units, both of which were
issued in connection with the IPO, the acquisition of the Initial Hotels
and the formation of the Company.




<PAGE>


     During 2000, the Company granted options to the Advisor under the 1998
SIP.  In conjunction with this grant, the Company recorded an expense of
$53 for the year ended December 31, 2000, which is included in Advisory Fee
in the accompanying statements of operations.  These options vested on
January 18, 2000.

     OPERATING PARTNERSHIP UNITS

     The outstanding Units are redeemable at the option of the holder for a
like number of Common Shares of the Company or, at the option of the
Company, for the cash equivalent thereof.

     On October 24, 2000, 36,754 Units were converted to Common Shares.  At
December 31, 2000, 1,539,147 Units were outstanding.  On January 1, 2001,
JLL and its affiliates redeemed 964,334 Units resulting in 574,813 Units
outstanding.


9.   EARNINGS PER SHARE

     The limited partners' outstanding units in the Operating Partnership
("Units") have been excluded from the diluted earnings per share
calculation as there would be no effect on the amounts since the minority
interests' share of income would also be added back to net income.

     The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted
EPS:

10.  PARTICIPATING LEASES

     The Participating Leases have noncancelable terms ranging from six to
eleven years (from commencement), subject to earlier termination on the
occurrence of certain contingencies, as defined.  The rent due under each
Participating Lease is the greater of base rent, as defined, or
participating rent.  Participating rent applicable to room and other hotel
revenues varies by lease and is calculated by multiplying fixed percentages
by the total amounts of such revenues over specified threshold amounts. 
Both the base rent and the participating rent thresholds used in computing
percentage rents applicable to room and other hotel revenues, including
food and beverage revenues, are subject to annual adjustments based on
increases in the United States Consumer Price Index ("CPI") published by
the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States of America Department
of Labor, U.S. City Average, Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers. 
Participating Lease revenues for the years ended December 31, 2000 and 1999
and for the period from April 29, 1998 (inception) through December 31,
1998 were $83,772, $76,843 and $46,464, of which $30,751, $25,271 and
$15,256 was in excess of base rent, respectively.

     Future minimum rentals (without reflecting future CPI increases) to be
received by the Company pursuant to the Participating Leases for each of
the years in the period 2000 to 2004 and in total thereafter are as
follows:
                  2001 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .   $ 54,568
                  2002 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .     54,568

                  Thereafter . . . . . . . . . . . . .    139,701


11.  ADVISORY AGREEMENT

     Upon completion of the IPO, the Company entered into an advisory
agreement with LaSalle Hotel Advisors, Inc. (the "Advisor"), a wholly owned
subsidiary of JLL.  From its inception through December 31, 2000, JLL acted
as an external advisor providing management, acquisition, advisory and
administration services pursuant to an Advisory Agreement and Employee
Lease Agreement (collectively the "Advisory Agreement").  The initial term
of the Advisory Agreement extended through December 31, 1999, subject to
successive, automatic one year renewals unless terminated according to the
terms of the Advisory Agreement.  On October 25, 1999, the Company's Board
of Trustees approved the renewal of the Advisory Agreement through December
31, 2000.

     On November 15, 2000, the Company's Board of Trustees approved the
termination of the Advisory Agreement and voted to become a self-managed
REIT effective January 1, 2001.  The Company will pay the Advisor $600 for
2001 transition services including waiving the termination notice period,
and providing support and advice through the first quarter of 2001.  In
addition, the Company will purchase assets to operate the Company at book
value.

     The Advisory Agreement provided for payment of a base fee, payable
quarterly, starting at 5% of the first $100.0 million of net operating
income ("NOI") (as defined). The percentage of NOI used to calculate the
base fee is reduced by .2% for every incremental $125.0 million of NOI
above $100.0 million until $600.0 million, at which point any excess NOI
above $600.0 million is subject to a base fee of 4%.




<PAGE>


     In addition, the Advisory Agreement provided for payment of an annual
incentive fee to be paid by the Company in arrears.  The annual incentive
fee is equal to 25% of the product of (i) the amount by which the funds
from operations ("FFO") per common share/Unit (as defined) for the calendar
year then ended (the "Measurement Year") exceeded a growth rate of 7% per
annum of the FFO per common share/Unit for the prior calendar year and (ii)
the common shares/Units outstanding for the Measurement Year.  For partial
years, the incentive fee was calculated on a pro rata basis for only that
portion of the year that the Advisory Agreement was in effect.  Payment of
the incentive fee was in common shares or Units at the option of the
Advisor.


12.  SHARE OPTION AND INCENTIVE PLAN

     In April 1998, the Board of Trustees adopted and the then current
shareholder, approved the Share Option and Incentive Plan (the "1998 SIP")
which is currently administered by the Compensation, Contract and
Governance Committee (the "Compensation Committee") of the Board of
Trustees.  The Advisor and its employees and the Hotel Operators and their
employees generally are eligible to participate in the 1998 SIP. 
Independent Trustees continuing in office after an annual meeting of
shareholders of the Company receive automatic annual grants of options to
purchase 1,000 Common Shares at a per share exercise price equal to fair
market value of a Common Share on the date of the meeting.

     The 1998 SIP authorizes, among other things:  (i) the grant of share
options that qualify as incentive options under the Code; (ii) the grant of
share options that do not so qualify; (iii) the grant of share options in
lieu of cash Trustees' fees; (iv) grants of Common Shares in lieu of cash
compensation; and (v) the making of loans to acquire Common Shares in lieu
of compensation.  The exercise price of share options is determined by the
Compensation Committee, but may not be less than 100% of the fair market
value of the Common Shares on the date of grant.  Options under the plan
vest over a period determined by the Compensation Committee, which is
generally a three year period.  The duration of each option is also
determined by the Compensation Committee, however, the duration of each
option shall not exceed 10 years from date of grant.

     On May 19, 1999, the common shareholders approved an amendment to the
1998 SIP, increasing the number of Common Shares authorized for issuance
under the SIP from 757,000 to 1,500,000.  Accordingly, at December 31, 2000
and 1999, 1,500,000 shares were authorized for issuance under the 1998 SIP.

     On February 1, 2001, an affiliate of the Advisor exercised 300,000
options.  Proceeds from the options were used to reduce outstanding
borrowings on the 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility.

     PRO FORMA NET INCOME AND NET INCOME PER COMMON SHARE

     The Company has applied Accounting Principles Board Opinion No. 25 and
related interpretations in accounting for the 1998 SIP.  Accordingly, no
compensation costs have been recognized, except $53 and $12 for the options
granted to the Advisor during 2000 and 1999, respectively, which were
accounted for under the method required by Statement of Financial
Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 123.  Had compensation cost for all of
the options granted under the Company's 1998 SIP been determined in
accordance with the method required by SFAS No. 123, the Company's net
income and net income per common share for 2000, 1999 and 1998 would
approximate the pro forma amounts below (in thousands, except per share
data).

     On July 28, 2000, the Operating Partnership reached a definitive
agreement with the shareholders of LaSalle Hotel Lessee, Inc. ("LHL"), to
purchase all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of LHL
for $500.  LHL leases four of the Company's owned hotels, including
Marriott Seaview Resort, LaGuardia Airport Marriott, Omaha Marriott and
Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and Hotel.  Effective January 1, 2001,
LHL is a 100% owned subsidiary of the Company as provided for under the
taxable-REIT subsidiary provisions.  It is currently anticipated that the
cost associated with the transaction will be expensed in the first quarter
of 2001.

15.  COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

     Three of the Hotels are subject to ground leases under noncancelable
operating leases with terms ranging out to May 2081.  Total lease expense
for the years ended December 31, 2000 and 1999 and for the period from
April 29, 1998 (inception) through December 31, 1998 was $3,574, $3,351 and
$1,886, respectively.  Future minimum lease payments are as follows:

                 2002. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .      2,364

                                                         ========

     The Company is obligated to make funds available to the Hotels for
capital expenditures (the "Reserve Funds"), as determined in accordance
with the Participating Leases.  The Reserve Funds have not been recorded on
the books and records of the Company as such amounts will be capitalized as
incurred.  The amounts obligated under the Reserve Funds range from 4.0% to
5.5% of the individual Hotel's total revenues.  The total amount obligated
by the Company under the Reserve Funds is approximately $10,521 at
December 31, 2000, of which $3,387 available in restricted cash reserves
for future capital expenditures.  Purchase orders and letters of commitment
totaling approximately $3,000 have been issued for renovations at the
Hotels.

     The nature of the operations of the Hotels expose them to the risk of
claims and litigation in the normal course of their business.  Although the
outcome of these matters cannot be determined, management does not expect
that the ultimate resolution of these matters will have a material adverse
effect on the financial position, operations or liquidity of the Hotels.


16.  RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

     At December 31, 2000, 1999 and 1998, the Company had a payable to JLL
of $966, $1,123 and $886, respectively, primarily for the advisory fee. 
For the years ended December 31, 2000 and 1999 and for the period from
April 29, 1998 (inception) through December 31, 1998, the total advisory
fee was $3,840, $3,670 and $2,134, of which $125, $412 and $155 represented
the incentive portion of the advisory fee, respectively.




<PAGE>


     On November 15, 2000, the Company announced its Board of Trustees
voted to become a self-managed company effective January 1, 2001 and
terminate its advisory relationship with Advisor.  In connection with the
termination, the Advisor will receive $600 for 2001 transition services and
the Company will purchase assets used to operate the Company at book value.

The entire management team has become employees of LHO and continues to
oversee and manage all activities of the Company under the new self-managed
structure.

19.  SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

     Effective January 1, 2001, the Company became a self-managed REIT. 
The Company terminated its Advisor relationship with the Advisory in
accordance with the Termination and Services Agreement dated December 28,
2000.  In connection with the termination, the Advisor will receive $600
for 2001 transition services.  The Company purchased assets used to operate
the Company at book value of approximately $302 and paid $50 for
informational technology services.  The entire management team has become
employees of LHO and continues to oversee and manage all activities of the
Company under the new self-managed structure.

     Effective January 1, 2001, the Company purchased all of the issued and
outstanding shares of capital stock of LHL for $500 in accordance with the
Stock Purchase Agreement dated July 28, 2000.  LHL leases four of the
Company's owned hotels, including Marriott Seaview Resort, LaGuardia
Airport Marriott, Omaha Marriott and Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and
Hotel.  Effective January 1, 2001, LHL is a 100% owned subsidiary of the
company as provided for under the taxable-REIT subsidiary provisions.  It
is currently anticipated that the cost associated with the transaction will
be expensed in the first quarter of 2001.

     On January 1, 2001, JLL and its affiliates redeemed 964,334 Units
resulting in 574,813 Units or 3.1% partnership interest held by the limited
partners.

     On January 15, 2001, the Company paid its regular fourth quarter
distribution of $0.385 per share/unit on its Common Shares and Units.

     On February 1, 2001, an affiliate of the Advisor exercised 300,000
options.  Proceeds from the options were used to reduce outstanding
borrowings on the 1998 Second Amended Credit Facility.

     On February 26, 2001, the Company terminated the operating lease on
the Viking Hotel with Bellevue Properties, Inc. and entered into lease with
LHL on essentially the same terms.  Bellevue Properties, Inc. received $840
in payment relating to termination, tax settlement due under the Purchase
and Sale Agreement and other items.  Noble House Hotel and Resorts replaced
Bellevue Properties, Inc. as manager for the property.

     On March 1, 2001, the Company redeemed the $40.0 million tax-exempt
Massport Bonds, which had a 10.0% coupon. Proceeds for the redemption were
derived from $37.1 million of tax exempt and $5.4 million of taxable bonds,
each having a 17-year maturity, bearing interest based on a weekly floating
rate and having no principal reductions for the life of the bonds.  Due to
the nature of these bonds, they can be redeemed at any time without
penalty.  The new bonds are secured by letters of credit issued by GE
Capital Corporation.  The letters of credit are collateralized by the
Harborside Hyatt Conference Center and Hotel.  The excess proceeds of
approximately $5,900 were used to pay down borrowings on the 1998 Second
Amended Credit facility.

     On March 8, 2001, the Company acquired a 100% interest in four full-
service hotels with a total of 502 guest rooms in Washington, D.C. for an
aggregate purchase price of approximately $44.0 million.  Each of the four
hotels will be fully renovated, improved and repositioned as unique high-
end, independent boutique hotels.  The Company will undertake the
redevelopment program, currently projected at a total of approximately
$30.0 million, in conjunction with the Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group,
LLC who was also retained to manage and operate the hotel collection. 
These four hotels have operated as the 99-room Canterbury Hotel, located at
1733 N Street, NW; the 82-room Clarion Hampshire House Hotel at 1310 New
Hampshire Avenue, NW; the 137-room Quality Hotel and Suites Downtown at
1315 16th Street, NW; and the 184-room Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel and
Suites, 1430 Rhode Island Avenue, NW.  Originally constructed as apartment
buildings, each hotel features either large rooms or suites.  Upon
completion of the redevelopment program, LaSalle intends to rename each
property and the Kimpton Group will operate each as independent, non-
branded boutique hotels.

20.  QUARTERLY OPERATING RESULTS (UNAUDITED)

     The Company's unaudited consolidated quarterly operating data for the
years ended December 31, 2000 and 1999 (in thousands, except per share
data).  In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal
recurring accruals) necessary for a fair presentation of quarterly results
have been reflected in the data.  It is also management's opinion, however,
that quarterly operating data for hotel enterprises are not indicative of
results to be achieved in succeeding quarters or years.

                       INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT



To the Board of Directors and Stockholders
LaSalle Hotel Lessee, Inc.

     We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of LaSalle Hotel
Lessee, Inc. (the Company) as of December 31, 2000 and 1999 and the related
statements of operations, stockholders' equity (deficit), and cash flows
for the years ended December 31, 2000 and 1999 and for the period from
April 29, 1998 (inception) through December 31, 1998.  These financial
statements 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 of America.  Those standards
require that we plan and perform the audit 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 financial statements referred to above present
fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of LaSalle Hotel
Lessee, Inc. as of December 31, 2000 and 1999, and the results of its
operations and its cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2000 and
1999 and for the period from April 29, 1998 (inception) through
December 31, 1998, in conformity with accounting principles generally
accepted in the United States of America.

1.   ORGANIZATION

     LaSalle Hotel Lessee, Inc. was formed on March 24, 1998 as an Illinois
Corporation, (the "Affiliated Lessee") by Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated
(formerly LaSalle Partners Incorporated) ("JLL") in connection with the
initial public offering of LaSalle Hotel Properties (the "Company") to
serve as lessee for three of the initial hotels owned by the Company.  The
Affiliated Lessee was owned as follows: 9.0% by the Company, 45.5% by JLL
and 45.5% by LPI Charities, a charitable corporation organized under the
laws of the state of Illinois.  Accordingly, the stockholders shared in the
profits and losses of the Affiliated Lessee in accordance with their
respective ownership interests.  In addition, any cash deficits would have
been funded by the stockholders in proportion to their ownership interests.

The Affiliated Lessee had no operations prior to April 29, 1998.  On June
24, 1998, the Affiliated Lessee leased Harborside Hyatt Conference Center
and Hotel (the "Boston Property") from the Company pursuant to the
Company's acquisition of the Boston Property.

     The owners capitalized the Affiliated Lessee with cash contributions
totaling $425, which were received during 1999 and 1998.  In connection
with the formation of the Affiliated Lessee and the subsequent lease of the
Boston Property, the Affiliated Lessee assumed certain assets and
liabilities of the four hotels.  The net liability totaling $2,568 was paid
to the Affiliated Lessee by the Company.  All four hotels (the "hotels")
are leased under participating leases ("Participating Leases") which
provide for rent based on hotel revenues and are managed by independent
hotel operators (the "Operators").

     On July 28, 2000, the Affiliated Lessee entered into a Stock Purchase
Agreement (the "Sale Agreement") with LaSalle Hotel Operating Partnership,
L.P. (the "Operating Partnership"), to sell all of the issued and
outstanding shares of capital stock of the Affiliated Lessee for $500. 
Effective January 1, 2001, the Affiliated Lessee is a 100% owned subsidiary
of the Company as provided for under the taxable-REIT subsidiary
provisions.

     The following hotels are leased to the Affiliated Lessee by the
Company:

PROPERTY NAME                             LOCATION
-------------                             --------

LaGuardia Airport Marriott                New York, NY
Omaha Marriott Hotel                      Omaha, NE
Marriott Seaview Resort                   Absecon, NJ (Atlantic City)
Harborside Hyatt 
 Conference Center and Hotel              Boston, MA


2.   SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

     BASIS OF PRESENTATION

     The Affiliated Lessee is operated on a calendar year basis.  However,
the Marriott hotels are operated on a fiscal year basis.  The Marriott
fiscal year ends on the Friday closest to December 31.  The 2000 and 1999
fiscal years for Marriott ended on December 29, 2000 and December 31, 1999,
respectively.  Both Marriott fiscal years are reflected in the accompanying
financial statements.

                          (Dollars in thousands)

     USE OF ESTIMATES

     The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with
generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make
estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of certain
assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities
at the balance sheet date and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses
during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those
estimates.

     CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS

     All highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less
when purchased are considered to be cash equivalents.

     FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

     Fair value is determined by using available market information  and
appropriate valuation methodologies.  The Affiliated Lessee's financial
instruments include cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable,
accounts payable and accrued expenses, which due to their short maturities,
are carried at amounts which reasonably approximate fair value.

     INVENTORIES

     Inventories consisting primarily of food and beverages and gift store
merchandise are stated at the lower of cost or market.

     REVENUE RECOGNITION

     Revenue is recognized as earned.  Ongoing credit evaluations are
performed and an allowance for potential credit losses is provided against
the portion of accounts receivable which is estimated to be uncollectible. 
Such losses have been within management's expectations.

     MEMBERSHIP FEES

     Golf course membership fees are recognized as revenue using the
straight-line method over the membership period.


3.   PARTICIPATING LEASES

     The Participating Leases are operating leases with noncancelable terms
of 10 years, subject to earlier termination on the occurrence of certain
contingencies, as defined.  The rent due under each Participating Lease is
the greater of base rent, as defined, or participating rent.  Participating
rent applicable to room and other hotel revenues varies by lease and is
calculated by multiplying fixed percentages by the total amounts of such
revenues over specified quarterly threshold amounts.  Both the base rent
and the participating rent thresholds used in computing percentage rents
applicable to room and other hotel revenues, including food and beverage
revenues, are subject to annual adjustments based on increases in the
applicable Consumer Price Index ("CPI").  Participating Lease expense for
the years ended December 31, 2000 and 1999 and for the period from
April 29, 1998 (inception) through December 31, 1998 was $30,963, $28,290
and $19,436 of which approximately $11,941, $9,923 and $7,125 was in excess
of base rent, respectively.

                          (Dollars in thousands)

     Future minimum rentals (without reflecting future CPI increases) to be
paid by the Affiliated Lessee pursuant to the Participating Leases for the
years 2001 to 2005 and in total thereafter are as follows:

                  2001 . . . . . . . $ 19,825
                  2002 . . . . . . .   19,825

                  2005 . . . . . . .   19,825
                  Thereafter . . . .   46,948

                    Total. . . . . . $146,073
                                     ========

     Other than real estate and personal property taxes, ground rent,
casualty insurance and capital improvements which are obligations of the
Company, the Percentage Leases require the Affiliated Lessee to pay rent,
liability insurance premiums, all costs, expenses, utilities and other
charges incurred in the operation of the leased hotels.  At December 31,
2000 and 1999, the Affiliated Lessee had an outstanding receivable of $756
and $30, respectively, from the Company for the reimbursement of capital
improvements, which were paid by the Affiliated Lessee.

     The Affiliated Lessee is required to indemnify the Company against all
liabilities, costs and expenses incurred by or asserted against the Company
in the normal course of operating the hotels.


4.   ADVISORY AGREEMENT

     On April 29, 1998, the Affiliated Lessee entered into an advisory
agreement (the "Advisory Agreement") with LaSalle Hotel Advisors, Inc. (the
"Advisor"), a wholly owned subsidiary of JLL, to provide all management,
administrative and accounting services for the Affiliated Lessee.  The
Advisory Agreement will remain in effect until either party gives notice of
termination.  This agreement was not renewed for 2001.  The Advisory
Agreement provided for an annual fee, prorated for any partial year the
Advisory Agreement is in effect.  The advisory fee increased 2% annually
and increased by $2,500 with each additional hotel leased by the Company to
the Affiliated Lessee.

     The advisory fee for the years ended December 31, 2000 and 1999 and
for the period from April 29, 1998 (inception) through December 31, 1998
was $27, $26 and $17, respectively.


5.  INCOME TAXES

     The components of the income tax expense (benefit) were as follows:

                                                  2000           1999

     The provision for income taxes differs from the amount of income tax
determined by applying the applicable U.S. statutory federal income tax
rate to pretax income as a result of the following differences:

                                                             For the

     The components of the Affiliated Lessee's deferred tax assets as of
December 31 were as follows:

                                                  2000           1999

                                                ========       ======== 

     The deferred tax asset and corresponding valuation allowance existing
at December 31, 1998 were subsequently adjusted to $292 to account for the
final tax loss carryforwards reflected in the 1998 tax returns.  Due to the
profitability of the Company in 1999 and the use of available loss
carryforwards, the adjusted valuation allowance of $292 is no longer
necessary, and has been credited in the 1999 tax provision.  The deferred
tax asset of $45 at December 31, 2000 is considered realizable given
estimates of future income.

6.  OPERATOR AGREEMENTS

     The hotels have entered into separate management agreements ("Operator
Agreements") with the Operators.  Pursuant to the terms of the Operator
Agreements, the Operators are to manage the hotels for a base management
fee ranging from 3.0% to 4.0% of gross revenues plus an incentive fee equal
to a percentage of certain measures of profitability, as defined.  For the
year ended December 31, 2000, base and incentive management fees totaled
$3,493 and $4,645, respectively.  For the year ended December 31, 1999,
base and incentive management fees totaled $3,171 and $4,226, respectively.

For the period from April 29, 1998 (inception) through December 31, 1998,
base and incentive management fees totaled $2,045 and $2,930, respectively.

Management fees of approximately $57 and $49 were payable on December 31,
2000 and December 31, 1999, respectively.  In addition, pursuant to the
terms of the Operator Agreements, the Operators provide the hotels with
various services and supplies, including marketing, reservations, and
insurance.


7.  CONTINGENCIES

     The nature of the operations of the hotels exposes them to the risk of
claims and litigation in the normal course of their business.  Although the
outcome of these matters cannot be determined, management does not expect
that the ultimate resolution of these matters to have a material adverse
effect on the financial position, operations or liquidity of the hotels.


8.  NOTES PAYABLE

     The Company provided working capital to the Affiliated Lessee in the
aggregate amount of $3,900 in exchange for notes payable.  The notes bear
interest at 5.6% or 6.0% per annum and are payable in monthly installments
of interest only.  The term of each note is identical to the term of the
related participating lease (see Note 11).  Interest expense totaled $228,
$228 and $54 for the years ended December 31, 2000 and 1999 and for the
period from April 29, 1998 (inception) through December 31, 1998,
respectively.


9.  CONCENTRATION OF RISK

     The profitability of the hotels is dependent upon business and leisure
travelers and in certain circumstances, golf tourism.  Consequently demand
may fluctuate and be seasonal.  Unfavorable economic or weather conditions
could adversely affect the results of operations.


10.   DISTRIBUTIONS

     In accordance with the Sale Agreement, the Affiliated Lessee made a
remaining capital distribution of $73 and an estimated retained earnings
distribution of $783 to the owners on December 28, 2000.  A distribution
adjustment based on actual retained earnings will be made by March 30,
2001.

11.  SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

     Effective January 1, 2001, the Company waived all security deposits
with the Affiliated Lessee for its Participating Leases for as long as the
Affiliated Lessee remains a 100% owned subsidiary of the Company.  As a
result, on January 5, 2001, $370 of security deposits was returned to the
Affiliated Lessee.

     On January 3, 2001, the Affiliated Lessee obtained a three-year
commitment for a $5,000 senior unsecured revolving credit facility (the
"2001 Credit Facility") to be used for working capital and general
corporate purposes.  Borrowings under the 2001 Credit Facility bear
interest at floating rates equal to LIBOR plus an applicable margin or an
"Adjusted Base Rate" plus an applicable margin, at the election of the
Affiliated Lessee.  The Affiliated Lessee is required to pay an unused
commitment fee which is variable, determined from a ratings based pricing
matrix, currently set at 25 basis points.

     On January 17, 2001, the $3,900 note payable due to the Company was
paid from cash and cash equivalents and borrowings under the 2001 Credit
Facility.

     On February 26, 2001, the Company entered into a lease with the
Affiliated Lessee for The Hotel Viking, a 237-room historic luxury hotel
located in Newport, Rhode Island.  Noble House Hotel and Resorts was hired
as manager for the property.

     On March 8, 2001, the Company acquired a 100% interest in four full-
service hotels with a total of 502 guestrooms in Washington, D.C. for an
aggregate purchase price of approximately $44.0 million.  The Company
leases these hotels to the Affiliated Lessee.  Each of the four hotels will
be fully renovated, improved and repositioned as unique high-end,
independent boutique hotels.  The Company will undertake the redevelopment
program, currently projected at a total of approximately $30.0 million, in
conjunction with the Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group, LLC who was also
retained to manage and operate the hotel collection.  These four hotels
have operated as the 99-room Canterbury Hotel, located at 1733 N Street,
NW; the 82-room Clarion Hampshire House Hotel at 1310 New Hampshire Avenue,
NW; the 137-room Quality Hotel and Suites Downtown at 1315 16th Street, NW;
and the 184-room Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel and Suites, 1430 Rhode Island
Avenue, NW.  Originally constructed as apartment buildings, each hotel
features either large rooms or suites.  Upon completion of the
redevelopment program, LaSalle intends to rename each property and the
Kimpton Group will operate each as independent, non-branded boutique
hotels.

such amounts as may be required to cause each of them to hold its Pro Rata
Share of Advances based upon the Commitments as of such Funding Date, and
the Administrative Agent shall distribute the funds so received to the
other Banks in such amounts as may be required to cause each of them to
hold its Pro Rata Share of Advances as of such Funding Date.  The Banks and
the Existing Lenders, as applicable, receiving such amounts to be applied
to LIBOR Advances may demand payment of the breakage costs under
Section 2.08 as though Borrower had elected to prepay such LIBOR Advances
on such date and the Borrower shall pay the amount so demanded as provided
in Section 2.08.  The first payment of interest and letter of credit fees
received by the Administrative Agent after such Funding Date shall be paid
to the Banks in amounts adjusted to reflect the adjustments of their
respective Pro Rata Shares of the Advances as of the Funding Date.  On the
Funding Date each Bank shall be deemed to have either sold or purchased, as
applicable, participations in the Letter of Credit Exposure sold to the
Banks pursuant to Section 2.13(b) of the Original Credit Agreement so that
upon consummation of all such sales and purchases each Bank holds
participations in the Letter of Credit Exposure equal to such Bank's Pro
Rata Share of the total Letter of Credit Exposure as of such Funding Date.

                                  ARTICLE II

                    THE ADVANCES AND THE LETTERS OF CREDIT


      SECTION 2.01  THE ADVANCES.  Each Bank severally agrees, on the terms
and conditions set forth in this Agreement, to make Advances to the
Borrower from time to time on any Business Day up to 30 days prior to the
Maturity Date in an aggregate amount not to exceed at any time outstanding
an amount equal to such Bank's Commitment LESS such Bank's Pro Rata Share
of the Letter of Credit Exposure at such time.  The aggregate amount of all
outstanding Advances and Letter of Credit Exposure at any time may not
exceed either the lesser of (i) the Total Commitments at such time or (ii)
the Borrowing Base at such time.  Within the limits of each Bank's
Commitment and the Borrowing Base limitation set forth above, the Borrower
may from time to time prepay pursuant to Section 2.07 and reborrow under
this Section 2.01. Notwithstanding any notice requirement in this Agreement
to the contrary, for the initial Advance only the Banks and the Borrower
agree that if the conditions precedent for the initial Advance set forth in
Section 3.01 are satisfied on or prior to November 14, 2000, the initial
Advance shall be on November 14, 2000 and shall be a LIBOR Advance if
requested by the Borrower.

      SECTION 2.02  METHOD OF BORROWING.

          (A)     NOTICE.  Each Borrowing shall be made by telephone
(promptly confirmed in writing on the same day) pursuant to a Notice of
Borrowing, given not later than 12:00 Noon (Dallas, Texas time) (i) on the
third Business Day before the date of the proposed Borrowing, in the case
of a Borrowing consisting of LIBOR Advances, or (ii) on the Business Day
before the date of the proposed Borrowing, in the case of a Borrowing
consisting of Base Rate Advances, by the Borrower to the Administrative
Agent, which shall give each Bank prompt notice on the day of receipt of
such timely telephone call or Notice of Borrowing of such proposed
Borrowing by telecopier.  Each Notice of Borrowing shall be in writing or
by telecopier specifying the requested (i) date of such Borrowing, (ii)
Type of Advances comprising such Borrowing, (iii) aggregate amount of such
Borrowing, and (iv) if such Borrowing is to be comprised of LIBOR Advances,
the Interest Period for each such Advance.  In the case of a proposed
Borrowing comprised of LIBOR Advances, the Administrative Agent shall
promptly notify each Bank of the applicable interest rate under Section
2.06(b).  Each Bank shall, before 12:00 Noon (Dallas, Texas time) on the
date of such Borrowing, make available for the account of its Applicable
Lending Office to the  Administrative Agent at its address referred to in
Section 10.02, or such other location as the  Administrative Agent may
specify by notice to the Banks, in same day funds, such Bank's Pro Rata
Share of such Borrowing.  Upon fulfillment of the applicable conditions set
forth in Article III, the Administrative Agent will make such funds
available to the Borrower at its account with the Administrative Agent or
to such other account as the Borrower shall specify to the Administrative
Agent in writing.

          (b)     CONVERSIONS AND CONTINUATIONS.  In order to elect to
Convert or continue Advances comprising part of the same Borrowing under
this Section, the Borrower shall deliver an irrevocable Notice of
Conversion or Continuation to the Administrative Agent at the
Administrative Agent's office no later than 12:00 Noon (Dallas, Texas time)
(i) on the date which is at least three Business Days in advance of the
proposed Conversion or continuation date in the case of a Conversion to or
a continuation of a Borrowing comprised of LIBOR Advances and (ii) on the
Business Day prior to the proposed conversion date in the case of a
Conversion to a Borrowing comprised of Base Rate Advances.  Each such
Notice of Conversion or Continuation shall be in writing or by telecopier,
specifying (i) the requested Conversion or continuation date (which shall
be a Business Day), (ii) the Borrowing amount and Type of the Advances to
be Converted or continued, (iii) whether a Conversion or continuation is
requested, and if a Conversion, into what Type of Advances, and (iv) in the



<PAGE>


case of a Conversion to, or a continuation of, LIBOR Advances, the
requested Interest Period.  Promptly after receipt of a Notice of
Conversion or Continuation under this paragraph, the Administrative Agent
shall provide each Bank with a copy thereof and, in the case of a
Conversion to or a continuation of LIBOR Advances, notify each Bank of the
applicable interest rate under Section 2.06(b).  For purposes other than
the conditions set forth in Section 3.02, the portion of Advances
comprising part of the same Borrowing that are Converted to Advances of
another Type shall constitute a new Borrowing.  If the Borrower shall fail
to specify an Interest Period for a LIBOR Advance including the
continuation of a LIBOR Advance, the Borrower shall be deemed to have
selected a Base Rate Advance.

          (c)     CERTAIN LIMITATIONS.  Notwithstanding anything in
paragraphs (a) and (b) above:

           (i)    in the case of LIBOR Advances each Borrowing shall be in
an aggregate amount of not less than $1,000,000 or greater multiples of
$100,000;

           (ii)   except for Borrowings for the acquisition by the Borrower
or its Subsidiary of Investments permitted under Sections 6.07 (c) and (d),
the Borrower may not request Borrowings on more than three days in any
calendar month.

           (iii)  at no time shall there be more than eight (8) Interest
Periods applicable to outstanding LIBOR Advances;

           (iv)   the Borrower may not select LIBOR Advances for any
Borrowing to be made, Converted or continued if a Default has occurred and
is continuing;

           (v)    if any Bank shall, at any time prior to the making of any
requested Borrowing comprised of LIBOR Advances, notify the Administrative
Agent that the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of
any law or regulation after the date hereof makes it unlawful, or that any
central bank or other governmental authority asserts that it is unlawful,
for such Bank or its LIBOR Lending Office to perform its obligations under
this Agreement to make LIBOR Advances or to fund or maintain LIBOR
Advances, then such Bank's Pro Rata Share of such Borrowing shall be made
as a Base Rate Advance, provided that such Base Rate Advance shall be
considered part of the same Borrowing and interest on such Base Rate
Advance shall be due and payable at the same time that interest on the
LIBOR Advances comprising the remainder of such Borrowing shall be due and
payable; and such Bank agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts
(consistent with its internal policies and legal and regulatory
restrictions) to designate a different Applicable Lending Office if the
making of such designation would avoid the effect of this paragraph and
would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Bank, be otherwise materially
disadvantageous to such Bank;

           (vi)   if the Administrative Agent is unable to determine the
LIBOR for LIBOR Advances comprising any requested Borrowing, the right of
the Borrower to select LIBOR Advances for such Borrowing or for any
subsequent Borrowing shall be suspended until the Administrative Agent
shall notify the Borrower and the Banks that the circumstances causing such
suspension no longer exist, and each Advance comprising such Borrowing
shall be a Base Rate Advance;




<PAGE>


           (vii)  if the Required Lenders shall, at least one Business Day
before the date of any requested Borrowing, notify the Administrative Agent
that the LIBOR for LIBOR Advances comprising such Borrowing will not
adequately reflect the cost to such Banks of making or funding their
respective LIBOR Advances, as the case may be, for such Borrowing, the
right of the Borrower to select LIBOR Advances for such Borrowing or for
any subsequent Borrowing shall be suspended until the Administrative Agent
shall notify the Borrower and the Banks that the circumstances causing such
suspension no longer exist, and each Advance comprising such Borrowing
shall be a Base Rate Advance; and

           (viii) if the Borrower shall fail to select the duration or
continuation of any Interest Period for any LIBOR Advances in accordance
with the provisions contained in the definition of "Interest Period" in
Section 1.01 and paragraph (a) or (b) above, the Administrative Agent will
forthwith so notify the Borrower and the Banks and such Advances will be
made available to the Borrower on the date of such Borrowing as Base Rate
Advances or, if an existing Advance, Converted into Base Rate Advances.

          (d)     NOTICES IRREVOCABLE.  Each Notice of Borrowing and Notice
of Conversion or Continuation shall be irrevocable and binding on the
Borrower.  In the case of any Borrowing which the related Notice of
Borrowing specifies is to be comprised of LIBOR Advances, the Borrower
shall indemnify each Bank against any loss, out-of-pocket cost or expense
incurred by such Bank as a result of any condition precedent for Borrowing
set forth in Article III not being satisfied for any reason, including,
without limitation, any loss, cost or expense actually incurred by reason
of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by
such Bank to fund the Advance to be made by such Bank as part of such
Borrowing when such Advance, as a result of such failure, is not made on
such date.

          (e)     ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT RELIANCE.  Unless the Administrative
Agent shall have received notice from a Bank before the date of any
Borrowing that such Bank will not make available to the Administrative
Agent such Bank's Pro Rata Share of the Borrowing, the Administrative Agent
may assume that such Bank has made its Pro Rata Share of such Borrowing
available to the Administrative Agent on the date of such Borrowing in
accordance with paragraph (a) of this Section 2.02 and the Administrative
Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower
on such date a corresponding amount.  If and to the extent that such Bank
shall not have so made its Pro Rata Share of such Borrowing available to
the Administrative Agent, such Bank and the Borrower severally agree to
immediately repay to the Administrative Agent on demand such corresponding
amount, together with interest on such amount, for each day from the date
such amount is made available to the Borrower until the date such amount is
repaid to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of the Borrower, the
interest rate applicable on each such day to Advances comprising such
Borrowing and (ii) in the case of such Bank, the Federal Funds Rate for
each such day.  If such Bank shall repay to the Administrative Agent such
corresponding amount and interest as provided above, such corresponding
amount so repaid shall constitute such Bank's Advance as part of such
Borrowing for purposes of this Agreement even though not made on the same
day as the other Advances comprising such Borrowing.

          (f)     BANK OBLIGATIONS SEVERAL.  The failure of any Bank to
make the Advance to be made by it as part of any Borrowing shall not
relieve any other Bank of its obligation, if any, to make its Advance on
the date of such Borrowing.  No Bank shall be responsible for the failure
of any other Bank to make the Advance to be made by such other Bank on the
date of any Borrowing.




<PAGE>


          (g)     NOTES.  The indebtedness of the Borrower to each Bank
resulting from Advances owing to such Bank shall be evidenced by the Note
of the Borrower payable to the order of such Bank in substantially the form
of Exhibit A.

      SECTION 2.03  FEES.

          (a)     COMMITMENT FEES.  For the period from the Effective Date
to but excluding the Maturity Date the Borrower agrees to pay to the
Administrative Agent for the account of each Bank a commitment fee on the
average daily amount by which such Bank's Commitment exceeds the sum of
such Bank's outstanding Advances and Pro Rata Share of the Letter of Credit
Exposure at a rate per annum equal to the Applicable Margin based upon a
360-day year.  Such fees shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears (i)
on the date which is 30 days following the last Business Day of each March,
June, September and December and (ii) on the Maturity Date.

          (b)     LETTER OF CREDIT FEES.  The Borrower agrees to pay to the
Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Banks, fees in respect of all
Letters of Credit outstanding at a rate per annum equal to the Applicable
Margin calculated based upon a 360-day year and in respect of the maximum
amount available from time to time to be drawn under such outstanding
Letters of Credit, payable quarterly in arrears (i) on the date which is 30
days following the last Business Day of each March, June, September and
December and (ii) on the Maturity Date.  In addition, the Borrower agrees
to pay to the Issuing Bank for its own account a fee on the average daily
amount of  the aggregate undrawn maximum face amount of each Letter of
Credit issued by such Issuing Bank at a rate per annum equal to .125%, such
fees due and payable quarterly in arrears (i) on the date which is 30 days
following the last Business Day of each March, June, September and December
and (ii) on the Maturity Date.

          (c)     FACILITATORS' FEES.  The Borrower agrees to pay to the
Facilitators for their benefit the fees set forth in the Fee Letter as and
when the same are due and payable pursuant to the terms of the Fee Letter.

          (d)     SG COWEN'S FEES.  The Borrower agrees to pay to SG Cowen
for SG Cowen's account the fees set forth in the Advisory Fee Letter (the
"Advisory Fee Letter") dated September 18, 2000, by and between such
parties, as and when the same are due and payable pursuant to the terms of
such Advisory Fee Letter.

      SECTION 2.04  REDUCTION OF THE COMMITMENTS.  The Borrower may, upon
at least three Business Days' prior notice to the Administrative Agent,
permanently terminate in whole or permanently reduce ratably in part the
Commitments of the Banks; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that (i) each partial
reduction shall be in the aggregate amount of not less than $5,000,000 or
an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof, (ii) no such
reduction shall result in a Borrowing Base deficiency as provided in
Section 2.07(c)(i), and (iii) no such reduction shall result in the Total
Commitments of the Banks being less than $100,000,000.

      SECTION 2.05  REPAYMENT OF ADVANCES.  The Borrower shall repay the
outstanding principal amount of each Advance on the Maturity Date.

      SECTION 2.06  INTEREST, LATE PAYMENT FEE.  The Borrower shall pay
interest on the unpaid principal amount of each Advance made by each Bank
from the date of such Advance until such principal amount shall be paid in
full, at the following rates per annum:




<PAGE>


          (a)     BASE RATE ADVANCES.  If such Advance is a Base Rate
Advance, a rate per annum (computed on the actual number of days elapsed,
including the first day and excluding the last, based on a 365 day year)
equal at all times to the lesser of (i) the Adjusted Base Rate in effect
from time to time plus the Applicable Margin and (ii) the Maximum Rate,
payable in arrears on the first day of each calendar month, provided that
during the continuance of an Event of Default, Base Rate Advances shall
bear interest at a rate per annum equal at all times to the lesser of
(i) the rate required to be paid on such Advance immediately prior to the
date on which such Event of Default commenced plus two percent (2%) and
(ii) the Maximum Rate.

          (b)     LIBOR ADVANCES.  If such Advance is a LIBOR Advance, a
rate per annum (computed on the actual number of days elapsed, including
the first day and excluding the last, based on a 360 day year) equal at all
times during the Interest Period for such Advance to the lesser of (i) the
LIBOR for such Interest Period plus the Applicable Margin and (ii) the
Maximum Rate, payable in arrears on the last day of such Interest Period,
and on the date such LIBOR Advance shall be paid in full, and, with respect
to LIBOR Advances having an Interest Period in excess of one month, the
first day of each calendar month during such Interest Period; provided that
during the continuance of an Event of Default, LIBOR Advances shall bear
interest at a rate per annum equal at all times to the lesser of (i) the
rate required to be paid on such Advance immediately prior to the date on
which such Event of Default commenced plus two percent (2%) and (ii) the
Maximum Rate.

          (c)     USURY RECAPTURE.  In the event the rate of interest
chargeable under this Agreement or the Notes at any time is greater than
the Maximum Rate, the unpaid principal amount of the Notes shall bear
interest at the Maximum Rate until the total amount of interest paid or
accrued on the Notes equals the amount of interest which would have been
paid or accrued on the Notes if the stated rates of interest set forth in
this Agreement had at all times been in effect.  In the event, upon payment
in full of the Notes, the total amount of interest paid or accrued under
the terms of this Agreement and the Notes is less than the total amount of
interest which would have been paid or accrued if the rates of interest set
forth in this Agreement had, at all times, been in effect, then the
Borrower shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, pay the
Administrative Agent for the account of the Banks an amount equal to the
difference between (i) the lesser of (A) the amount of interest which would
have been charged on the Notes if the Maximum Rate had, at all times, been
in effect and (B) the amount of interest which would have accrued on the
Notes if the rates of interest set forth in this Agreement had at all times
been in effect and (ii) the amount of interest actually paid or accrued
under this Agreement on the Notes.  In the event the Banks ever receive,
collect or apply as interest any sum in excess of the Maximum Rate, such
excess amount shall, to the extent permitted by law, be applied to the
reduction of the principal balance of the Notes, and if no such principal
is then outstanding, such excess or part thereof remaining shall be paid to
the Borrower.

          (d)     OTHER AMOUNTS OVERDUE.  If any amount payable under this
Agreement other than the Advances is not paid when due and payable,
including without limitation, accrued interest and fees, then such overdue
amount shall accrue interest hereon due and payable on demand at a rate per
annum equal to the Adjusted Base Rate plus two percent (2%), from the date
such amount became due until the date such amount is paid in full.




<PAGE>


      SECTION 2.07  PREPAYMENTS.

          (a)     RIGHT TO PREPAY.  The Borrower shall have no right to
prepay any principal amount of any Advance except as provided in this
Section 2.07.

          (b)     OPTIONAL PREPAYMENTS.  The Borrower may elect to prepay
any of the Advances, after giving by 12:00 Noon (Dallas, Texas time) (i) in
the case of LIBOR Advances, at least three Business Days' prior written
notice or (ii) in case of Base Rate Advances, at least one Business Day's
prior written notice to the Administrative Agent stating the proposed date
and aggregate principal amount of such prepayment, and if applicable, the
relevant Interest Period for the Advances to be prepaid.  If any such
notice is given, the Borrower shall prepay Advances comprising part of the
same Borrowing in whole or ratably in part in an aggregate principal amount
equal to the amount specified in such notice, and with respect to LIBOR
Advances shall also pay accrued interest to the date of such prepayment on
the principal amount prepaid and amounts, if any, required to be paid
pursuant to Section 2.08 as a result of such prepayment being made on such
date; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that each partial prepayment shall be in an
aggregate principal amount not less than $1,000,000 and in integral
multiples of $100,000.

          (c)     MANDATORY PREPAYMENTS.

           (i)    BORROWING BASE DEFICIENCY.  On or prior to the fifth
(5th) Business Day following a Borrowing Base Determination Date occurring
under the provisions of Section 2.14, the Borrower shall be required to
prepay Advances in an aggregate amount equal to the excess of (A) the
aggregate amount of outstanding Advances and Letter of Credit Exposure on
such date over (B) the lesser of (1) the Borrowing Base, as determined on
such Borrowing Base Determination Date or (2) the Total Commitments at such
time (or, upon payment in full of all outstanding Advances, to deposit into
the Cash Collateral Account an amount equal to the amount of the Letter of
Credit Exposure which exceeds the Borrowing Base).

           (ii)   ACCRUED INTEREST.  Each prepayment pursuant to this
Section 2.07(c) of a LIBOR Advance shall be accompanied by accrued interest
on the amount prepaid to the date of such prepayment and amounts, if any,
required to be paid pursuant to Section 2.08 as a result of such prepayment
being made on such date.

          (d)     RATABLE PAYMENTS.  Each payment of any Advance pursuant
to this Section 2.07 or any other provision of this Agreement shall be made
in a manner such that all Advances comprising part of the same Borrowing
are paid in whole or ratably in part.

          (e)     EFFECT OF NOTICE.  All notices given pursuant to this
Section 2.07 shall be irrevocable and binding upon the Borrower.

      SECTION 2.08  BREAKAGE COSTS.  If (a) any payment of principal of any
LIBOR Advance is made other than on the last day of the Interest Period for
such Advance as a result of any payment pursuant to Section 2.07 or the
acceleration of the maturity of the Notes pursuant to Article VIII or
otherwise; (b) any Conversion of a LIBOR Advance is made other than on the
last day of the Interest Period for such Advance pursuant to Section 2.12
or otherwise; or (c) the Borrower fails to make a principal or interest
payment with respect to any LIBOR Advance on the date such payment is due
and payable, the Borrower shall, within 10 days of any written demand sent
by any Bank to the Borrower through the Administrative Agent, pay to the
Administrative Agent for the account of such Bank any amounts (without
duplication of any other amounts payable in respect of breakage costs)
required to compensate such Bank for any losses (other than lost profit),
out-of-pocket costs or expenses which it may reasonably incur as a result
of such payment or nonpayment, including, without limitation, any loss,
cost or expense incurred by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of
deposits or other funds acquired by any Bank to fund or maintain such
Advance.



<PAGE>


      SECTION 2.09  INCREASED COSTS.

          (a)     LIBOR ADVANCES.  If, due to either (i) the introduction
of or any change (other than any change by way of imposition or increase of
reserve requirements included in the calculation of the LIBOR) in or in the
interpretation of any law or regulation enacted, issued or promulgated
after the date of this Agreement or (ii) the compliance with any guideline
or request from any central bank or other Governmental Authority (whether
or not having the force of law) enacted, issued or promulgated after the
date of this Agreement, there shall be any increase in the cost to any Bank
of agreeing to make or making, funding or maintaining LIBOR Advances, then
the Borrower shall from time to time, within 10 days of written demand by
such Bank (with a copy of such demand to the Administrative Agent), pay to
the Administrative Agent for the account of such Bank additional amounts
(without duplication of any other amounts payable in respect of increased
costs) sufficient to compensate such Bank for such increased cost;
PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, before making any such demand, each Bank agrees to
use commercially reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy
and legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different Applicable
Lending Office if the making of such a designation would avoid the need
for, or reduce the amount of, such increased cost and would not, in the
reasonable judgment of such Bank, be otherwise disadvantageous to such
Bank.  A certificate as to the amount of such increased cost and detailing
the calculation of such cost submitted to the Borrower and the
Administrative Agent by such Bank at the time such Bank demands payment
under this Section shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent
manifest error.

          (b)     CAPITAL ADEQUACY.  If any Bank or the Issuing Bank
determines in good faith that compliance with any law or regulation or any
guideline or request from any central bank or other Governmental Authority
(whether or not having the force of law) enacted, issued or promulgated
after the date of this Agreement affects or would affect the amount of
capital required or expected to be maintained by such Bank or the Issuing
Bank and that the amount of such capital is increased by or based upon the
existence of such Bank's commitment to lend or the Issuing Bank's
commitment to issue Letters of Credit or any Bank's commitment to risk
participate in Letters of Credit and other commitments of this type, then,
upon 30 days prior written notice by such Bank or the Issuing Bank (with a
copy of any such demand to the Administrative Agent), the Borrower shall
immediately pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Bank or
to the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, from time to time as specified by
such Bank or the Issuing Bank, additional amounts (without duplication of
any other amounts payable in respect of increased costs) sufficient to
compensate such Bank or the Issuing Bank, in light of such circumstances,
(i) with respect to such Bank, to the extent that such Bank reasonably
determines such increase in capital to be allocable to the existence of
such Bank's commitment to lend under this Agreement or its commitment to
risk participate in Letters of Credit and (ii) with respect to the Issuing
Bank, to the extent that such Issuing Bank reasonably determines such
increase in capital to be allocable to the issuance or maintenance of the
Letters of Credit.  A certificate as to such amounts and detailing the
calculation of such amounts submitted to the Borrower and the
Administrative Agent by such Bank or the Issuing Bank shall be conclusive
and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.




<PAGE>


          (c)     LETTERS OF CREDIT.  If any change in any law or
regulation or in the interpretation thereof by any court or administrative
or Governmental Authority charged with the administration thereof enacted,
issued or promulgated after the date of this Agreement shall either
(i) impose, modify, or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, or
similar requirement against letters of credit issued by, or assets held by,
or deposits in or for the account of, Issuing Bank or any Bank or
(ii) impose on Issuing Bank or any Bank any other condition regarding the
provisions of this Agreement relating to the Letters of Credit or any
Letter of Credit Obligations, and the result of any event referred to in
the preceding clause (i) or (ii) shall be to increase the cost to Issuing
Bank of issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit, or increase the cost
to such Bank of its risk participation in any Letter of Credit (which
increase in cost shall be determined by Issuing Bank's or such Bank's
reasonable allocation of the aggregate of such cost increases resulting
from such event), then, within 10 days of written demand by Issuing Bank or
such Bank (with a copy sent to the Administrative Agent), as the case may
be, the Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of
Issuing Bank or Bank, as the case may be, from time to time as specified by
Issuing Bank or such Bank, additional amounts which shall be sufficient to
compensate such Issuing Bank or such Bank for such increased cost.  Issuing
Bank and each Bank agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts
(consistent with internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to
designate a different Applicable Lending Office for the booking of its
Letters of Credit or risk participations if the making of such designation
would avoid the effect of this paragraph and would not, in the reasonable
judgment of Issuing Bank or such Bank, be otherwise disadvantageous to
Issuing Bank or such Bank, as the case may be.  A certificate as to such
increased cost incurred by Issuing Bank or such Bank, as the case may be,
as a result of any event mentioned in clause (i) or (ii) above, and
detailing the calculation of such increased costs submitted by Issuing Bank
or such Bank to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, shall be
conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.

      SECTION 2.10  PAYMENTS AND COMPUTATIONS.

          (a)     Payment Procedures.  Except if otherwise set forth
herein, the Borrower shall make each payment under this Agreement and under
the Notes not later than 12:00 Noon (Dallas, Texas time) on the day when
due in Dollars to the Administrative Agent without setoff, deduction or
counterclaim at the location referred to in the Notes (or such other
location as the Administrative Agent shall designate in writing to the
Borrower) in same day funds.  The Administrative Agent will on the same day
such payment is deemed received from the Borrower cause to be distributed
like funds relating to the payment of principal, interest or fees ratably
(other than amounts payable solely to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing
Banks, or a specific Bank pursuant to Section 2.03(b), 2.03(c), 2.06(c),
2.08, 2.09, 2.11, 2.12, or 2.13(c) but after taking into account payments
effected pursuant to Section 10.04) to the Banks in accordance with each
Bank's Pro Rata Share for the account of their respective Applicable
Lending Offices, and like funds relating to the payment of any other amount
payable to any Bank or Issuing Bank for the account of its Applicable
Lending Office, in each case to be applied in accordance with the terms of
this Agreement.  If and to the extent that the Administrative Agent shall
not have so made payment to a Bank on the day required under this
Agreement, the Administrative Agent agrees to immediately pay such Bank
such payment, together with interest on such amount, for each day from the
date such amount was deemed received by the Administrative Agent until the
date such amount is paid to such Bank at the Federal Funds Rate for each
such day.




<PAGE>


          (b)     COMPUTATIONS.  All computations of interest based on the
Adjusted Base Rate shall be made by the Administrative Agent on the basis
of a year of 365 days and all computations of fees and interest based on
the LIBOR and the Federal Funds Rate shall be made by the Administrative
Agent on the basis of a year of 360 days, in each case for the actual
number of days (including the first day, but excluding the last day)
occurring in the period for which such interest or fees are payable.  Each
determination by the Administrative Agent of an interest rate shall be
conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.

          (c)     NON-BUSINESS DAY PAYMENTS.  Whenever any payment shall be
stated to be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be
made on the next succeeding Business Day, and such extension of time shall
in such case be included in the computation of payment of interest or fees,
as the case may be; PROVIDED, however, that if such extension would cause
payment of interest on or principal of LIBOR Advances to be made in the
next following calendar month, such payment shall be made on the next
preceding Business Day.

          (d)     ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT RELIANCE.  Unless the Administrative
Agent shall have received written notice from the Borrower prior to the
date on which any payment is due to the Banks that the Borrower will not
make such payment in full, the Administrative Agent may assume that the
Borrower has made such payment in full to the Administrative Agent on such
date and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption,
cause to be distributed to each Bank on such date an amount equal to the
amount then due such Bank.  If and to the extent the Borrower shall not
have so made such payment in full to the Administrative Agent, each Bank
shall repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such amount
distributed to such Bank, together with interest, for each day from the
date such amount is distributed to such Bank until the date such Bank
repays such amount to the Administrative Agent, at the Federal Funds Rate
for each such day.

          (e)     APPLICATION OF PAYMENTS.  Unless otherwise specified in
Section 2.07 hereof, whenever any payment received by the Administrative
Agent under this Agreement is insufficient to pay in full all amounts then
due and payable under this Agreement and the Notes, such payment shall be
distributed and applied by the Administrative Agent and the Banks in the
following order:  FIRST, to the payment of fees and expenses due and
payable to the Administrative Agent under and in connection with this
Agreement or any other Credit Document; SECOND, to the payment of all
expenses due and payable under Section 2.11(c), ratably among the Banks in
accordance with the aggregate amount of such payments owed to each such
Bank; THIRD, to the payment of fees due and payable to the Issuing Bank
pursuant to Section 2.03(b); FOURTH, to the payment of all other fees due
and payable under Section 2.03; and FIFTH, to the payment of the interest
accrued on and the principal amount of all of the Notes and the interest
accrued on and all Letter of Credit Obligations, regardless of whether any
such amount is then due and payable, ratably among the Banks in accordance
with the respective Pro Rata Share.

          (f)     REGISTER.  The Administrative Agent shall record in the
Register the Commitment and the Advances from time to time of each Bank and
each repayment or prepayment in respect to the principal amount of such
Advances of each Bank.  Any such recordation shall be conclusive and
binding on the Borrower and each Bank, absent manifest error; PROVIDED
HOWEVER, that failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such
recordation, shall not affect the Borrower's obligations hereunder in
respect of such Advances.




<PAGE>


      SECTION 2.11  TAXES.

          (a)     NO DEDUCTION FOR CERTAIN TAXES.  Any and all payments by
the Borrower shall be made, in accordance with Section 2.10, free and clear
of and without deduction for any and all present or future taxes, levies,
imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all liabilities with
respect thereto, excluding, in the case of each Bank, Issuing Bank, and the
Administrative Agent, taxes imposed on its income, and franchise taxes
imposed on it, by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Bank,
Issuing Bank, or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) is organized
or any political subdivision of such jurisdiction or by the jurisdiction of
such Bank's Applicable Lending Office or any political subdivision of such
jurisdiction (all such nonexcluded taxes, levies, imposts, deductions,
charges, withholdings and liabilities being hereinafter referred to as
"Taxes").  If the Borrower shall be required by law to deduct any Taxes
from or in respect of any sum payable to any Bank, Issuing Bank, or the
Administrative Agent, (i) the sum payable shall be increased as may be
necessary so that, after making all required deductions (including
deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.11),
such Bank, Issuing Bank, or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be)
receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such
deductions been made; PROVIDED, however, that if the Borrower's obligation
to deduct or withhold Taxes is caused solely by such Bank's, Issuing
Bank's, or the Administrative Agent's failure to provide the forms
described in paragraph (e) of this Section 2.11 and such Bank, Issuing
Bank, or the Administrative Agent could have provided such forms, no such
increase shall be required; (ii) the Borrower shall make such deductions;
and (iii) the Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant
taxation authority or other authority in accordance with applicable Legal
Requirements.

          (b)     OTHER TAXES.  In addition, the Borrower agrees to pay any
present or future stamp or documentary taxes or any other excise or
property taxes, charges or similar levies which arise from any payment made
or from the execution, delivery or registration of, or otherwise with
respect to, this Agreement, the Notes, or the other Credit Documents
(hereinafter referred to as "Other Taxes").

          (c)     INDEMNIFICATION.  Subject to the proviso of Section
2.11(a), the Borrower indemnifies each Bank, Issuing Bank, and the
Administrative Agent for the full amount of Taxes or Other Taxes
(including, without limitation, any Taxes or Other Taxes imposed by any
Governmental Authority on amounts payable under this Section 2.11) paid by
such Bank, Issuing Bank, or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be)
and any liability (including interest and expenses) arising therefrom or
with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes or Other Taxes were
correctly or legally asserted.  Each payment required to be made by the
Borrower in respect of this indemnification shall be made to the
Administrative Agent for the benefit of any party claiming such
indemnification within 30 days from the date the Borrower receives written
demand detailing the calculation of such amounts therefor from the
Administrative Agent on behalf of itself as Administrative Agent, Issuing
Bank, or any such Bank.  If any Bank, the Administrative Agent, or Issuing
Bank receives a refund in respect of any Taxes or Other Taxes paid by the
Borrower under this paragraph (c), such Bank, the Administrative Agent, or
Issuing Bank, as the case may be, shall promptly pay to the Borrower the
Borrower's share of such refund.

          (d)     EVIDENCE OF TAX PAYMENTS.  The Borrower will pay prior to
delinquency all Taxes and Other Taxes payable in respect of any payment. 
Within 30 days after the date of any payment of Taxes, the Borrower will
furnish to the Administrative Agent, at its address referred to in
Section 10.02, the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing
payment of such Taxes or Other Taxes.




<PAGE>


          (e)     FOREIGN BANK WITHHOLDING EXEMPTION.  Each Bank and each
Issuing Bank that is not incorporated under the laws of the United States
of America or a state thereof agrees that it will deliver to the Borrower
and the Administrative Agent on the date of this Agreement or upon the
effectiveness of any Assignment and Acceptance two duly completed copies of
the Prescribed Forms, certifying in each case that such Bank is entitled to
receive payments under this Agreement and the Notes payable to it, without
deduction or withholding of any United States federal income taxes.  Each
Bank which delivers to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent a
Prescribed Form further undertakes to deliver to the Borrower and the
Administrative Agent two further copies of a replacement Prescribed Form,
on or before the date that any such Prescribed Form expires or becomes
obsolete or after the occurrence of any event requiring a change in the
most recent form previously delivered by it to the Borrower and the
Administrative Agent, and such extensions or renewals thereof as may
reasonably be requested by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent
certifying that such Bank is entitled to receive payments under this
Agreement without deduction or withholding of any United States federal
income taxes.  If an event (including without limitation any change in
treaty, law or regulation) has occurred prior to the date on which any
delivery required by the preceding sentence would otherwise be required
which renders all such forms inapplicable or which would prevent any Bank
from duly completing and delivering any such Prescribed Form with respect
to it and such Bank advises the Borrower and the Administrative Agent that
it is not capable of receiving payments without any deduction or
withholding of United States federal income tax, such Bank shall not be
required to deliver such forms.  The Borrower shall withhold tax at the
rate and in the manner required by the laws of the United States with
respect to payments made to a Bank failing to timely provide the requisite
Prescribed Forms.

      SECTION 2.12  ILLEGALITY.  If any Bank shall notify the
Administrative Agent and the Borrower that the introduction of or any
change in or in the interpretation of any Legal Requirement makes it
unlawful, or that any central bank or other Governmental Authority asserts
that it is unlawful for such Bank or its LIBOR Lending Office to perform
its obligations under this Agreement to maintain any LIBOR Advances of such
Bank then outstanding hereunder, then, notwithstanding anything herein to
the contrary, the Borrower shall, if demanded by such Bank by notice to the
Borrower and the Administrative Agent no later than 12:00 Noon (Dallas,
Texas time), (a) if not prohibited by Legal Requirement to maintain such
LIBOR Advances for the duration of the Interest Period, on the last day of
the Interest Period for each outstanding LIBOR Advance of such Bank or
(b) if prohibited by Legal Requirement to maintain such LIBOR Advances for
the duration of the Interest Period, on the second Business Day following
its receipt of such notice from such Bank, Convert all LIBOR Advances of
such Bank then outstanding to Base Rate Advances, and pay accrued interest
on the principal amount Converted to the date of such Conversion and
amounts, if any, required to be paid pursuant to Section 2.08 as a result
of such Conversion being made on such date.  Each Bank agrees to use
commercially reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policies and
legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different Applicable
Lending Office if the making of such designation would avoid the effect of
this paragraph and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Bank, be
otherwise disadvantageous to such Bank.




<PAGE>


      SECTION 2.13  LETTERS OF CREDIT.

          (a)     ISSUANCE.  From time to time from the date of this
Agreement until three months before the Maturity Date, at the request of
the Borrower, the Issuing Bank shall, on any Business Day and on the terms
and conditions hereinafter set forth, issue, increase, decrease, amend, or
extend the expiration date of Letters of Credit for the account of the
Borrower (for its own benefit or for the benefit of any of its
Subsidiaries).   Upon the Effective Date, but subject to the limitations
contained in the following sentence, each Existing Letter of Credit shall
be automatically converted to a Letter of Credit.  No Letter of Credit will
be issued, increased, or extended and no Existing Letter of Credit will be
converted to a Letter of Credit (i) if such issuance, increase, or
extension would cause the Letter of Credit Exposure to exceed the lesser of
(x) $25,000,000 or (y) an amount equal to (A) the lesser of the Borrowing
Base or the Total Commitments LESS (B) the aggregate outstanding Advances
and Letter of Credit Exposure at such time; (ii) unless such Letter of
Credit has an Expiration Date not later than the earlier of (A) one year
after the date of issuance thereof and (B) one day prior to the Maturity
Date; (iii) unless such Letter of Credit is in form and substance
acceptable to the respective Issuing Bank; (iv) unless such Letter of
Credit is a standby letter of credit not supporting the repayment of
indebtedness for borrowed money of any Person; (v) unless the Borrower has
delivered to the respective Issuing Bank the completed and executed Letter
of Credit Documents (other than the Letter of Credit) on such Issuing
Bank's standard form, which shall contain terms no more restrictive than
the terms of this Agreement; (vi) unless such Letter of Credit is governed
by the International Standby Practices (1998) ("ISP") or any successor to
the ISP; and (vii) unless no Default has occurred and is continuing or
would result from the issuance of such Letter of Credit.  If the terms of
any of the Letter of Credit Documents referred to in the foregoing
clause (v) conflicts with the terms of this Agreement, the terms of this
Agreement shall control.

          (b)     PARTICIPATIONS.  On the date of the issuance or increase
of any Letter of Credit on or after the Effective Date or the conversion of
any Existing Letter of Credit to a Letter of Credit in accordance with
provisions of the preceding Section 2.13(a), each Issuing Bank shall be
deemed to have sold to each other Bank and each other Bank shall have been
deemed to have purchased from such Issuing Bank a participation in the
Letter of Credit Exposure related to the Letters of Credit issued by such
Issuing Bank equal to such Bank's Pro Rata Share at such date and such sale
and purchase shall otherwise be in accordance with the terms of this
Agreement.  Each Issuing Bank shall promptly notify each such participant
Bank by telex, telephone, or telecopy of each Letter of Credit of such
Issuing Bank issued, increased or decreased, and the actual dollar amount
of such Bank's participation in such Letter of Credit.  Each Bank's
obligation to purchase participating interests pursuant to this Section and
to reimburse the respective Issuing Bank for such Bank's Pro Rata Share of
any payment under a Letter of Credit by such Issuing Bank not reimbursed in
full by the Borrower shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be
affected by any circumstance, including, without limitation, (i) any of the
circumstances described in paragraph (d) below, (ii) the occurrence and
continuance of a Default, (iii) an adverse change in the financial
condition of the Borrower or any Guarantor, or (iv) any other circumstance,
happening or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the
foregoing, except for any such circumstance, happening or event
constituting or arising from gross negligence or willful misconduct on the
part of such Issuing Bank.




<PAGE>


          (c)     REIMBURSEMENT.  The Borrower shall pay promptly on demand
to each Issuing Bank in respect of each Letter of Credit issued by such
Issuing Bank an amount equal to any amount paid by such Issuing Bank under
or in respect of such Letter of Credit.  In the event any Issuing Bank
makes a payment pursuant to a request for draw presented under a Letter of
Credit and such payment is not promptly reimbursed by the Borrower upon
demand, such Issuing Bank shall give notice of such payment to the
Administrative Agent and the Banks, and each Bank shall promptly reimburse
such Issuing Bank for such Bank's Pro Rata Share of such payment, and such
reimbursement shall be deemed for all purposes of this Agreement to
constitute a Base Rate Advance to the Borrower from such Bank.  If such
reimbursement is not made by any Bank to any Issuing Bank on the same day
on which such Issuing Bank shall have made payment on any such draw, such
Bank shall pay interest thereon to such Issuing Bank for each such day from
the date such payment should have been made until the date repaid at a rate
per annum equal to the Federal Funds Rate for each such day.  The Borrower
hereby unconditionally and irrevocably authorizes, empowers, and directs
the Administrative Agent and the Banks to record and otherwise treat each
payment under a Letter of Credit not immediately reimbursed by the Borrower
as a Borrowing comprised of Base Rate Advances to the Borrower.

          (d)     OBLIGATIONS UNCONDITIONAL.  Except to the extent provided
in Section 2.13(e), the obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement in
respect of each Letter of Credit shall be unconditional and irrevocable,
and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement
under all circumstances, notwithstanding the following circumstances:

           (i)    any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of
Credit Documents;

           (ii)   any amendment or waiver of or any consent to departure
from any Letter of Credit Documents;

           (iii)  the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other
right which the Borrower or any Bank or any other Person may have at any
time against any beneficiary or transferee of such Letter of Credit (or any
Persons for whom any such beneficiary or any such transferee may be
acting), the respective Issuing Bank or any other Person or entity, whether
in connection with this Agreement, the transactions contemplated in this
Agreement or in any Letter of Credit Documents or any unrelated
transaction;

           (iv)   any statement or any other document presented under such
Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient
in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any
respect to the extent the respective Issuing Bank would not be liable
therefor pursuant to the following paragraph (e);

           (v)    payment by the respective Issuing Bank under such Letter
of Credit against presentation of a draft or certificate which does not
comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; or

           (vi)   any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether
or not similar to any of the foregoing.

          (e)     LIABILITY OF ISSUING BANKS.  The Borrower assumes all
risks of the acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee of any
Letter of Credit with respect to its use of such Letter of Credit.  No
Issuing Bank, nor any other Bank, nor any of their respective officers or
directors shall be liable or responsible for:

           (i)    the use which may be made of any Letter of Credit or any
acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee in connection therewith;




<PAGE>


           (ii)   the validity, sufficiency or genuineness of documents, or
of any endorsement thereon, even if such documents should prove to be in
any or all respects invalid, insufficient, fraudulent or forged;

           (iii)  payment by such Issuing Bank against presentation of
documents which do not comply with the terms of a Letter of Credit,
including failure of any documents to bear any reference or adequate
reference to the relevant Letter of Credit; or

           (iv)   any other circumstances whatsoever in making or failing
to make payment under any Letter of Credit (including such Issuing Bank's
own negligence);

EXCEPT that the Borrower shall have a claim against such Issuing Bank, and
such Issuing Bank shall be liable to, and shall promptly pay to, the
Borrower, to the extent of any direct, as opposed to consequential, damages
suffered by the Borrower which the Borrower proves were caused by (A) such
Issuing Bank's willful misconduct or gross negligence in determining
whether documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms
of such Letter of Credit or (B) such Issuing Bank's gross negligence in
failing to make lawful payment under any Letter of Credit after the
presentation to it of a draft and certificate strictly complying with the
terms and conditions of such Letter of Credit.  In furtherance and not in
limitation of the foregoing, any Issuing Bank may accept documents that
appear on their face to be in order, without responsibility for further
investigation.

      SECTION 2.14  DETERMINATION OF BORROWING BASE.  The Borrowing Base
shall be determined by the Administrative Agent, as follows:

          (a)     QUARTERLY.  On the 45th day following each calendar
quarter the Administrative Agent shall determine the Borrowing Base upon
receipt of a Borrowing Base Certificate setting forth the components of the
Borrowing Base dated as of the last day of the immediately preceding
calendar quarter.

          (b)     PROPERTY ADJUSTMENTS.  Following each addition or
deletion of a Hotel Property as an Eligible Property (an "Adjustment
Event"), and the Administrative Agent's receipt of a Property Adjustment
Report with respect thereto, the Administrative Agent shall adjust the
Borrowing Base accordingly.

          (c)     REDUCTION OF COMMITMENTS.  Following each reduction of
the Commitments pursuant to the provisions of Section 2.04.

          (d)     NOTICE OF BORROWING BASE CHANGE.  Promptly following any
date the Borrowing Base is re-determined in accordance with the preceding
paragraphs, the Administrative Agent shall give notice to the Banks and the
Borrower of the new Borrowing Base.




<PAGE>


      SECTION 2.15  BANK REPLACEMENT.

          (a)     RIGHT TO REPLACE.  The Borrower shall have the right to
replace each Bank affected by a condition under Section 2.02(c)(v), 2.09,
2.11, or 2.12 for more than 90 days (each such affected Bank, an "Affected
Bank") in accordance with the procedures in this Section 2.15 and provided
that no reduction of the total Commitments occurs as a result thereof.

          (b)     FIRST RIGHT OF REFUSAL; REPLACEMENT.

           (i)    Upon the occurrence of any condition permitting the
replacement of a Bank, the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion
shall have the right to reallocate the amount of the Commitments of the
Affected Banks, including without limitation to Persons which are not
already party to this Agreement but which qualify as Eligible Assignees,
which election shall be made by written notice within 30 days after the
date such condition occurs.

           (ii)   If the aggregate amount of the reallocated Commitments is
less than the Commitments of the Affected Banks, (A) the respective
Commitments of the Banks which have received such reallocated Commitments 
shall be increased by the respective amounts of their proposed
reallocations, and (B) the Borrower shall have the right to add additional
Banks which are Eligible Assignees to this Agreement to replace such
Affected Banks, which additional Banks would have aggregate Commitments no
greater than those of the Affected Banks MINUS the amounts of the
Commitments already reallocated.

          (c)     PROCEDURE.  Any assumptions of Commitments pursuant to
this Section 2.15 shall be (i) made by the purchasing Bank or Eligible
Assignee and the selling Bank entering into an Assignment and Assumption
and by following the procedures in Section 10.06 for adding a Bank.  In
connection with the reallocation of the Commitments of any Bank pursuant to
the foregoing paragraph (b), each Bank with a reallocated Commitment shall
purchase from the Affected Banks at par such Bank's ratable share of the
outstanding Advances of the Affected Banks and assume such Bank's ratable
share of the Affected Banks' Letter of Credit Exposure.

      SECTION 2.16  SHARING OF PAYMENTS, ETC.  If any Bank shall obtain any
payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right
of set-off or otherwise) on account of its Advances or its share of Letter
of Credit Obligations in excess of its Pro Rata Share of payments on
account of the Advances or Letter of Credit Obligations obtained by all the
Banks, such Bank shall notify the Administrative Agent and forthwith
purchase from the other Banks such participations in the Advances made by
them or Letter of Credit Obligations held by them as shall be necessary to
cause such purchasing Bank to share the excess payment ratably in
accordance with the requirements of this Agreement with each of them;
PROVIDED, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment is
thereafter recovered from such purchasing Bank, such purchase from each
Bank shall be rescinded and such Bank shall repay to the purchasing Bank
the purchase price to the extent of such Bank's ratable share (according to
the proportion of (a) the amount of the participation sold by such Bank to
the purchasing Bank as a result of such excess payment to (b) the total
amount of such excess payment) of such recovery, together with an amount
equal to such Bank's ratable share (according to the proportion of (a) the
amount of such Bank's required repayment to the purchasing Bank to (b) the
total amount of all such required repayments to the purchasing Bank) of any
interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Bank in respect
of the total amount so recovered.  The Borrower agrees that any Bank so
purchasing a participation from another Bank pursuant to this Section 2.16
may, to the fullest extent permitted by Legal Requirement, unless and until
rescinded as provided above, exercise all its rights of payment (including
the right of set-off) with respect to such participation as fully as if
such Bank were the direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such
participation.

nor the Parent, nor any of the Subsidiaries own directly or indirectly (i)
such a percentage of the beneficial ownership interest in any Approved

applicable federal, state, local and foreign law.  Timely payment of all
material sales and use taxes required by applicable law have been made by

steps to preserve rights against any parties with respect to any such
funds.

from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and
apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional
or final) at any time held and other indebtedness at any time owing by such
Bank to or for the credit or the account of the Borrower against any and
all of the obligations of the Borrower now or hereafter existing under this
Agreement, the Note held by such Bank, and the other Credit Documents,
irrespective of whether or not such Bank shall have made any demand under
this Agreement, such Note, or such other Credit Documents, and although
such obligations may be unmatured.  Each Bank agrees to promptly notify the
Borrower after any such set-off and application made by such Bank, provided
that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such
set-off and application.  The rights of each Bank under this Section are in
addition to any other rights and remedies (including, without limitation,
other rights of set-off) which such Bank may have.

                      AGENCY AND ISSUING BANK PROVISIONS


      SECTION 9.01  AUTHORIZATION AND ACTION.  Each Bank hereby appoints
and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such action as the
Administrative Agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under this
Agreement and the other Credit Documents as are delegated to the
Administrative Agent by the terms hereof and of the other Credit Documents,
together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto.  As to any
matters not expressly provided for by this Agreement or any other Credit
Document (including, without limitation, enforcement or collection of the
Notes), the Administrative Agent shall not be required to exercise any
discretion or take any action, but shall be required to act or to refrain
from acting (and shall be fully protected in so acting or refraining from
acting) upon the instructions of the Required Lenders, and such
instructions shall be binding upon all Banks and all holders of Notes;
PROVIDED, however, that the Administrative Agent shall not be required to
take any action which exposes the Administrative Agent to personal
liability or which is contrary to this Agreement, any other Credit
Document, or applicable law.  The functions of the Administrative Agent are
administerial in nature and in no event shall the Administrative Agent have
a fiduciary or trustee relation in respect of any Bank by reason of this
Agreement or any other Credit Document.  Within 5 Business Days of the
Administrative Agent or a Bank receiving actual notice (without any duty to
investigate) of a Default, the Administrative Agent or such Bank, as
applicable, will provide written notice of such Default to the Banks.

      SECTION 9.02  ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT'S RELIANCE, ETC.  Neither the
Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, agents or
employees shall be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken
(including such Person's own negligence) by it or them under or in
connection with this Agreement or the other Credit Documents, except for
its or their own gross negligence or willful misconduct.  Without
limitation of the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent: 
(a) may treat the payee of any Note as the holder thereof until the
Administrative Agent receives written notice of the assignment or transfer
thereof signed by such payee and in form satisfactory to the Administrative
Agent; (b) may consult with legal counsel (including counsel for the
Borrower), independent public accountants and other experts selected by it
and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken in good
faith by it in accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants or
experts; (c) makes no warranty or representation to any Bank and shall not
be responsible to any Bank for any statements, warranties or
representations made in or in connection with this Agreement or the other
Credit Documents; (d) shall not have any duty to ascertain or to inquire as

conditions of this Agreement or any other Credit Document on the part of
the Parent, the Borrower or their Subsidiaries or to inspect the property
(including the books and records) of the Borrower or its Subsidiaries; (e)
shall not be responsible to any Bank for the due execution, legality,
validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this
Agreement or any other Credit Document; and (f) shall incur no liability
under or in respect of this Agreement or any other Credit Document by
acting upon any notice, consent, certificate or other instrument or writing
(which may be by telecopier, telegram, cable or telex) believed by it to be
genuine and signed or sent by the proper party or parties.




<PAGE>


      SECTION 9.03  ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT AND ITS AFFILIATES.  With respect
to its Commitment, the Advances made by it and the Notes issued to it, the
Administrative Agent shall have the same rights and powers under this
Agreement as any other Bank and may exercise the same as though it were not
the Administrative Agent.  The term "Bank" or "Banks" shall, unless
otherwise expressly indicated, include the Administrative Agent in its
individual capacity.  The Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may
accept deposits from, lend money to, act as trustee under indentures of,
and generally engage in any kind of business with, the Borrower or any of
its Subsidiaries, and any Person who may do business with or own securities
of the Borrower or any such Subsidiary, all as if the Administrative Agent
were not the Administrative Agent hereunder and without any duty to account
therefor to the Banks.

      SECTION 9.04  BANK CREDIT DECISION.  Each Bank acknowledges that it
has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or
any other Bank and based on the Parent's and the Borrower's financial
statements and the Parent's filings under the Exchange Act and such other
documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit
analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement.  Each Bank also
acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the
Administrative Agent or any other Bank and based on such documents and
information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its
own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement.

      SECTION 9.05  INDEMNIFICATION.  The Banks severally agree to
indemnify the Administrative Agent and each Issuing Bank (to the extent not
reimbursed by the Borrower), according to their respective Pro Rata Shares
from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages,
penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of
any kind or nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by, or
asserted against the Administrative Agent or such Issuing Bank in any way
relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any action taken or omitted
by the Administrative Agent or such Issuing Bank under this Agreement or
any other Credit Document (including the Administrative Agent's or such
Issuing Bank's own negligence), provided that no Bank shall be liable for
any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties,
actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting from
the Administrative Agent's or such Issuing Bank's gross negligence or
willful misconduct.  Without limitation of the foregoing, each Bank agrees
to reimburse the Administrative Agent promptly upon demand for its Pro Rata
Share of any out-of-pocket expenses (including reasonable counsel fees)
incurred by the Administrative Agent in connection with the preparation,
execution, delivery, administration, modification, amendment or enforcement
(whether through negotiations, legal proceedings or otherwise) of, or legal
advice in respect of rights or responsibilities under, this Agreement or
any other Credit Document, to the extent that the Administrative Agent is
not reimbursed for such expenses by the Borrower.

      SECTION 9.06  SUCCESSOR ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT AND ISSUING BANKS.  The
Administrative Agent or any Issuing Bank may resign at any time by giving
written notice thereof to the Banks and the Borrower and may be removed at
any time with cause by the Required Lenders upon receipt of written notice
from the Required Lenders to such effect. Upon receipt of notice of any
such resignation or removal, the Required Lenders shall have the right to
appoint a successor Administrative Agent or Issuing Bank acceptable to the
Borrower.  If no successor Administrative Agent or Issuing Bank shall have
been so appointed, and shall have accepted such appointment, within 30 days
after the retiring Administrative Agent's or Issuing Bank's giving of
notice of resignation or the Required Lenders' removal of the retiring
Administrative Agent or Issuing Bank, then the retiring Administrative
Agent or Issuing Bank may, on behalf of the Banks and the Borrower, appoint
a successor Administrative Agent or Issuing Bank acceptable to the
Borrower, which shall be a commercial bank meeting the financial
requirements of an Eligible Assignee and, in the case of an Issuing Bank, a



<PAGE>


Bank.  Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Administrative Agent or
Issuing Bank by a successor Administrative Agent or Issuing Bank, such
successor Administrative Agent or Issuing Bank shall thereupon succeed to
and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the
retiring Administrative Agent or Issuing Bank, and the retiring
Administrative Agent or Issuing Bank shall be discharged from its duties
and obligations under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents, except
that the retiring Issuing Bank shall remain an Issuing Bank with respect to
any Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank and outstanding on the
effective date of its resignation or removal and the provisions affecting
such Issuing Bank with respect to such Letters of Credit shall inure to the
benefit of the retiring Issuing Bank until the termination of all such
Letters of Credit.  After any retiring Administrative Agent's or Issuing
Bank's resignation or removal hereunder as Administrative Agent or Issuing
Bank, the provisions of this Article IX shall inure to its benefit as to
any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was such
Administrative Agent or Issuing Bank under this Agreement and the other
Credit Documents.

(including any threatened investigation or proceeding) relating to the
foregoing, or (iv) any Environmental Claim or requirement of Environmental
Laws concerning or relating to the present or previously-owned or operated
properties, or the operations or business, of the Borrower or any of its
Subsidiaries, and the Borrower shall reimburse the Administrative Agent,
each Issuing Bank, and each Bank, and each affiliate thereof and their
respective directors, officers, employees and agents, upon demand for any
reasonable out-of-pocket expenses (including legal fees) incurred in
connection with any such investigation, litigation or other proceeding; and
expressly including any such losses, liabilities, claims, damages, or
expense incurred by reason of the Person being indemnified's own
negligence, but excluding any such losses, liabilities, claims, damages or
expenses incurred by reason of the gross negligence or willful misconduct
of the Person to be indemnified.

      SECTION 10.08  EXECUTION IN COUNTERPARTS.  This Agreement may be
executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in
separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be
an original and all of which taken together shall constitute one and the
same agreement.

      SECTION 10.09  SURVIVAL OF REPRESENTATIONS, INDEMNIFICATIONS, ETC. 
All representations, warranties contained in this Agreement or made in
writing by or on behalf of the Borrower in connection herewith shall
survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the Credit
Documents, the making of the Advances and any investigation made by or on
behalf of the Banks, none of which investigations shall diminish any Bank's
right to rely on such representations and warranties.  All obligations of
the Borrower provided for in Sections 2.08, 2.09, 2.11(c), 9.05 and 10.07
shall survive any termination of this Agreement and repayment in full of
the Obligations.

      SECTION 10.10  SEVERABILITY.  In case one or more provisions of this
Agreement or the other Credit Documents  shall be invalid, illegal or
unenforceable in any respect under any applicable law, the validity,
legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions contained herein or
therein shall not be affected or impaired thereby.

      SECTION 10.11  ENTIRE AGREEMENT.  This Agreement, the Notes and the
other Credit Documents constitute the entire understanding among the

<PAGE>


      SECTION 10.12  USURY NOT INTENDED.  It is the intent of the Borrower
and each Bank in the execution and performance of this Agreement and the
other Credit Documents to contract in strict compliance with applicable
usury laws, including conflicts of law concepts, governing the Advances of
each Bank including such applicable laws of the State of New York and the
United States of America from time to time in effect.  In furtherance
thereof, the Banks and the Borrower stipulate and agree that none of the
terms and provisions contained in this Agreement or the other Credit
Documents shall ever be construed to create a contract to pay, as
consideration for the use, forbearance or detention of money, interest at a
rate in excess of the Maximum Rate and that for purposes hereof "interest"
shall include the aggregate of all charges which constitute interest under
such laws that are contracted for, charged or received under this
Agreement; and in the event that, notwithstanding the foregoing, under any
circumstances the aggregate amounts taken, reserved, charged, received or
paid on the Advances, include amounts which by applicable law are deemed
interest which would exceed the Maximum Rate, then such excess shall be
deemed to be a mistake and each Bank receiving same shall credit the same
on the principal of its Notes (or if such Notes shall have been paid in
full, refund said excess to the Borrower).  In the event that the maturity
of the Notes is accelerated by reason of any election of the holder thereof
resulting from any Event of Default under this Agreement or otherwise, or
in the event of any required or permitted prepayment, then such
consideration that constitutes interest may never include more than the
Maximum Rate and excess interest, if any, provided for in this Agreement or
otherwise shall be canceled automatically as of the date of such
acceleration or prepayment and, if theretofore paid, shall be credited on
the applicable Notes (or, if the applicable Notes shall have been paid in
full, refunded to the Borrower).  In determining whether or not the
interest paid or payable under any specific contingencies exceeds the
Maximum Rate, the Borrower and the Banks shall to the maximum extent
permitted under applicable law amortize, prorate, allocate and spread in
equal parts during the period of the full stated term of the Notes all
amounts considered to be interest under applicable law at any time
contracted for, charged, received or reserved in connection with the
Obligations.   The provisions of this Section shall control over all other
provisions of this Agreement or the other Credit Documents which may be in
apparent conflict herewith.

      SECTION 10.13  GOVERNING LAW.   ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN THE BORROWER, THE
ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT, THE ISSUING BANK, ANY BANK, OR ANY INDEMNITEE ARISING
OUT OF, CONNECTED WITH, RELATED TO, OR INCIDENTAL TO THE RELATIONSHIP
ESTABLISHED BETWEEN THEM IN CONNECTION WITH, THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OF THE
OTHER CREDIT DOCUMENTS, AND WHETHER ARISING IN CONTRACT, TORT, EQUITY, OR

                                   ---------

      NOW, THEREFORE, Indemnitor, as an inducement to the Banks to make the
Loan, hereby covenants and agrees to and for the benefit of the Banks as
follows:

      1.    DEFINED TERMS.  All terms used in this Agreement, but not
defined herein, shall have the meaning given such terms in the Credit
Agreement.

      2.    HAZARDOUS MATERIAL.  As used in this Agreement, the term
"Hazardous Materials" shall mean any flammable explosives, radioactive
materials, hazardous wastes, hazardous materials, hazardous or toxic
substances, or related materials as defined in the Comprehensive
Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980, as amended
(42 U.S.C. Section 9601 et. seq.), the Hazardous Materials Transportation
Act, as amended (49 U.S.C. Section 1801 et seq.), the Resource Conservation
and Recovery Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. Section 6901 et seq.), and in the

friable asbestos, petroleum derivatives, polychlorinated biphenyls, and
materials defined as hazardous materials under any federal, state or local
laws, ordinances, codes, rules, orders, regulations or policies governing
the use, storage, treatment, transportation, manufacture, refinement,
handling, production or disposal thereof (collectively, "Environmental
Laws").

      3.    REPRESENTATION.  Except as set forth in the Environmental
Reports, Indemnitor warrants and represents to the Banks that it has no
knowledge of (a) the presence of any Hazardous Materials on any of the
Properties except for Permitted Hazardous Substances; or (b) any material
spills, releases, discharges or disposal of Hazardous Materials that have
occurred or are presently occurring off any of the Properties as a result
of any construction on or operation and use of any of the Properties.  In
connection with the operation and use of any of the Properties, Indemnitor
warrants and represents that, as of the date of this Agreement, it has no
knowledge of any failure to comply in all material respects with all
applicable law, state and federal environmental laws, regulations,
ordinances and administrative and judicial orders relating to the
generation, recycling, reuse, sale, storage, handling, transport and
disposal of any Hazardous Materials other than as set forth in the
Environmental Reports.

      4.    COVENANT.  Indemnitor covenants and agrees not to cause or
permit the presence, use, generation, release, discharge, storage, disposal
or transportation of any Hazardous Materials on, under, in, about, to or
from any of the Properties except for Permitted Hazardous Substances.

      5.    INDEMNIFICATION.  Indemnitor shall exonerate, indemnify, pay
and protect, defend (with counsel approved pursuant to the Credit
Agreement) and save the Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the
Documentation Agent, the Banks, and their respective directors, trustees,
beneficiaries, officers, shareholders, employees and agents of the Banks
(collectively, the "Indemnified Parties"), harmless from and against any
claims (including, without limitation, third party claims for personal
injury or real or personal property damage), actions, administrative
proceedings (including informal proceedings), judgments, damages, punitive
damages, penalties, fines, costs, taxes, assessments, liabilities
(including, without limitation, sums paid in settlements of claims),
interest or losses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses
(including, without limitation, any such reasonable fees and expenses
incurred in enforcing this Agreement or collecting any sums due hereunder),
consultant fees, and expert fees, together with all other reasonable costs
and expenses of any kind or nature (collectively, the "Costs") that arise
directly or indirectly in connection with the presence, suspected presence,

<PAGE>


soil, ground water, surface water or improvements at, on, about, under or
within any of the Properties, or any portion thereof, or elsewhere in
connection with the transportation of Hazardous Materials to or from any of
the Properties (any such release being referred to herein as a "Release");
provided however that Indemnitor shall not be so liable for any Costs
arising because of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of an
Indemnified Party or Costs arising because of a Release from or on a
Property after the Administrative Agent or the Administrative Agent's
nominee acquires title to such Property.  INDEMNITOR'S OBLIGATION TO SO
INDEMNIFY THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES SHALL INCLUDE INDEMNIFICATION FOR ANY OF
SUCH MATTERS CAUSED IN WHOLE OR IN PART BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF ANY OF THE
INDEMNIFIED PARTIES.  The indemnification provided in this Section shall
specifically apply to and include claims or actions brought by or on behalf
of tenants or employees of Indemnitor; Indemnitor hereby expressly waives
(with respect to any claims of the Indemnified Parties arising under this
Agreement) any immunity to which Indemnitor may otherwise be entitled under
any industrial or worker's compensation laws.  In the event any of the
Indemnified Parties shall suffer or incur any such Costs, Indemnitor shall
pay to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Indemnified Party
the total of all such Costs suffered or incurred by such Indemnified Party
within ten (10) days after demand therefor, such payment to be disbursed by
the Administrative Agent in accordance with the Credit Agreement.  Without
limiting the generality of the foregoing, the indemnification provided by
this Section 5 shall specifically cover Costs, including, without
limitation, capital, operating and maintenance costs, incurred in
connection with any investigation or monitoring of site conditions, any
clean-up, containment, remedial, removal or restoration work required or
performed by any federal, state or local governmental agency or political
subdivision ("Governmental Agency") or performed by any non-governmental
entity or person as required or requested, by any Governmental Agency
because of the presence, suspected presence, release or suspected release
of any Hazardous Materials in or into the air, soil, groundwater, surface
water or improvements at, on, under or within any of the Properties (or any
portion thereof), or elsewhere in connection with the transportation of
Hazardous Materials to or from any of the Properties, and any claims of
third parties for loss or damage due to such Hazardous Materials.

      6.    REMEDIAL WORK.  In the event any investigation or monitoring of
site conditions or any clean-up, containment, restoration, removal or other
remedial work ("Remedial Work") is required (a) under any Environmental
Law, (b) by any judicial, arbitral or administrative order, (c) in order to
comply with any agreements affecting any of the Properties, or (d) to
maintain any of the Properties in a standard of environmental condition
which prevents the release or generation of any Hazardous Materials except
for Permitted Hazardous Substances, Indemnitor shall perform or cause to be
performed such Remedial Work; provided, that Indemnitor may withhold
commencement of such Remedial Work pending resolution of any good faith
contest regarding the application, interpretation or validity of any law,
regulation, order or agreement, subject to the requirements of Section 7
below.  All Remedial Work shall be conducted (i) in a diligent and timely
fashion by a licensed environmental engineer, (ii) pursuant to a detailed
written plan for the Remedial Work approved by any Governmental Agency with
a legal or contractual right to such approval, (iii) with such insurance
coverage pertaining to liabilities arising out of the Remedial Work as is
then customarily maintained with respect to such activities and (iv) only
following receipt of all required permits, licenses or approvals.  In
addition, Indemnitor shall submit to the Banks promptly upon receipt or
preparation, copies of any and all reports, studies, analyses,
correspondence, governmental comments or approvals, proposed removal or
other Remedial Work contracts and similar information prepared or received
by Indemnitor in connection with any Remedial Work or Hazardous Materials
relating to any of the Properties.  All costs and expenses of such Remedial
Work shall be paid by Indemnitor, including, without limitation, the
charges of the Remedial Work contractors and the consulting environmental
engineer, any taxes or penalties assessed in connection with the Remedial
Work and the Banks' reasonable fees and costs incurred in connection with
monitoring or review of such Remedial Work.  In the event Indemnitor should



<PAGE>


fail to commence or cause to be commenced such Remedial Work, in a timely
fashion, or fail diligently to prosecute to completion, such Remedial Work,
the Administrative Agent following consent of the Required Lenders
(following thirty (30) days written notice to Indemnitor) may, but shall
not be required to, cause such Remedial Work to be performed, and all costs
and expenses thereof, or incurred in connection therewith shall be Costs
within the meaning of Section 5 above.  All such Costs shall be due and
payable to the Administrative Agent by Indemnitor upon thirty (30) days
after demand therefor, such payments to be disbursed by the Administrative
Agent in accordance with the Credit Agreement.

      7.    PERMITTED CONTESTS.  Notwithstanding any provision of this
Agreement to the contrary, Indemnitor may contest by appropriate action any
Remedial Work requirement imposed by any Governmental Agency  or similar
agency provided that (a) Indemnitor has given the Banks written notice that
Indemnitor is contesting or shall contest and Indemnitor does in fact
contest the application, interpretation or validity of the law, regulation,
order or agreement pertaining to the Remedial Work by appropriate legal or
administrative proceedings conducted in good faith and with due diligence
and dispatch, (b) such contest shall not subject any of the Indemnified
Parties nor any assignee of all or any portion of the Banks' interest in
the Loan nor any of the Properties to civil or criminal liability and does
not jeopardize any such party's lien upon or interest in any of the
Properties and (c) if the estimated cost of the Remedial Work is greater
than $1,000,000, Indemnitor shall give such security or assurances as may
be reasonably required by the Banks as determined pursuant to the Credit
Agreement to ensure ultimate compliance with all legal or contractual
requirements pertaining to the Remedial Work (and payment of all costs,
expenses, interest and penalties in connection therewith) and to prevent
any sale, forfeiture or loss by reason of nonpayment or non-compliance.

      8.    REPORTS AND CLAIMS.  Indemnitor shall deliver to the Banks
copies of any reports, analyses, correspondence, notices, licenses,
approvals, orders or other written materials relating to the environmental
condition of any of the Properties promptly upon receipt, completion or
delivery thereof.  Indemnitor shall give notice to the Banks of any claim,
action, administrative proceeding (including, without limitation, informal
proceedings) or other demand by any governmental agency or other third
party involving Costs or Remedial Action at the time such claim or other
demand first becomes known to Indemnitor.  Receipt of any such notice shall
not be deemed to create any obligation on the Banks to defend or otherwise
respond to any claim or demand.  All notices, approvals, consents, requests
and demands upon the respective parties hereto shall be in writing,
including telegraphic communication and delivered or teletransmitted to the
Administrative Agent, as set forth in the Credit Agreement and to each
Indemnitor, at the address set forth beneath such Indemnitor's signature or
in the Accession Agreement executed by such Indemnitor, or to such other
address as shall be designated by any Indemnitor or the Administrative
Agent in written notice to the other parties.  All such notices and other
communications shall be effective when delivered or teletransmitted to the
above addresses.

      9.    BANKS AS OWNER.  If for any reason, the Administrative Agent or
any of the Banks (or any successor or assign of such parties) becomes the
fee owner of any of the Properties and any claim, action, notice,
administrative proceeding (including, without limitation, informal
proceedings) or other demand is made by any governmental agency or other
third party which implicate Costs or Remedial Work, Indemnitor shall
cooperate with such party in any defense or other appropriate response to
any such claim or other demand; provided however that Indemnitor shall not
be so liable for any Costs arising because of the gross negligence or
willful misconduct of an Indemnified Party.  Indemnitor's duty to cooperate
and right to participate in the defense or response to any such claim or
demand shall not be deemed to limit or otherwise modify Indemnitor's
obligations under this Agreement.  Any party subject to a claim or other
proceeding referenced in the first sentence of this Section 9 shall give
notice to Indemnitor of any claim or demand governed by this Section 9 at
the time such claim or other demand first becomes known to such party.




<PAGE>


      10.   SUBROGATION OF INDEMNITY RIGHTS.  If Indemnitor fails to fully
perform its obligations under Sections 5 and 6 above, the Indemnified
Parties shall be subrogated to any rights or claims Indemnitor may have
against any present, future or former owners, tenants or other occupants or
users of any of the Properties, any portion thereof or any adjacent or
proximate properties, relating to the recovery of Costs or the performance
of Remedial Work.

      11.   ASSIGNMENT BY AGENTS AND BANKS.  No consent by Indemnitor shall
be required for any assignment or reassignment of the rights of the
Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent or the
Banks under this Agreement to any successor of such party or a purchaser of
the Loan or any interest in or portion of the Loan including participation
interests in accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement.

      12.   MERGER, CONSOLIDATION OR SALE OF ASSETS.  In the event
Indemnitor is dissolved, liquidated or terminated or all or substantially
all the assets of Indemnitor are sold or otherwise transferred to one or
more persons or other entities, the surviving entity or transferee of
assets, as the case may be, (i) shall be formed and existing under the laws
of a state, (ii) shall deliver to the Banks an acknowledged instrument in
recordable form assuming all obligations, covenants and responsibilities of
Indemnitor under this Agreement.

      13.   INDEPENDENT OBLIGATIONS; SURVIVAL.  The obligations of
Indemnitor under this Agreement shall survive the consummation of the Loan
transaction described above and the repayment of the Loan.  The obligations
of Indemnitor under this Agreement are separate and distinct from the
obligations of Indemnitor under the Credit Documents.  This Agreement may
be enforced by the Banks without regard to or affecting any rights and
remedies the Administrative Agent and/or the Banks may have against
Indemnitor under the Credit Documents and without regard to any limitations
on the Administrative Agent's or Banks' recourse for recovery of the Loan
as may be provided in the Credit Documents.  Enforcement of this Agreement
is not and shall not be deemed to constitute an action for recovery of the
indebtedness of the Loan.

      14.   DEFAULT INTEREST.  In addition to all other rights and remedies
of the Banks against Indemnitor as provided herein, or under applicable
law, Indemnitor shall pay to the Administrative Agent, immediately upon
demand therefor, Default Interest (as defined below) on any Costs and other
payments required to be paid by Indemnitor to the Banks under this
Agreement which are not paid within ten (10) days after demand therefor,
such payments to be disbursed by the Administrative Agent in accordance
with the Credit Agreement.  Default Interest shall be paid by Indemnitor
from the date such payment becomes delinquent through and including the
date of payment of such delinquent sums.  "Default Interest" shall mean a
per annum interest rate equal to three percent (3%) above the Adjusted Base
Rate or reference rate for the then current calendar month, as of the first
day of such calendar month, which is publicly announced from time to time
by the Administrative Agent.

      15.   CONTRIBUTION.  As a result of the transactions contemplated by
the Credit Agreement, each of the Indemnitors will benefit, directly and
indirectly, from the Obligations and in consideration thereof desire to
enter into a contribution agreement among themselves as set forth in this
Section 15 to allocate such benefits among themselves and to provide a fair
and equitable arrangement to make contributions in the event any payment is
made by any Indemnitor hereunder to the Administrative Agent, the
Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent or the Banks (such payment being
referred to herein as a "Contribution," and for purposes of this Agreement,
includes any exercise of recourse by the Administrative Agent against any
Property of a Contributor and application of proceeds of the sale of such
Property in satisfaction of such Indemnitor's obligations under this
Agreement).  The Indemnitors hereby agree as follows:




<PAGE>


            15.1. CALCULATION OF CONTRIBUTION.  In order to provide for
just and equitable contribution among the Indemnitors in the event any
Contribution is made by an Indemnitor (a "Funding Indemnitor"), such
Funding Indemnitor shall be entitled to a contribution from certain other
Indemnitors for all payments, damages and expenses incurred by that Funding
Indemnitor in discharging any of the obligations under this Agreement (the
"Obligations"), in the manner and to the extent set forth in this Section. 
The amount of any Contribution under this Agreement shall be equal to the
payment made by the Funding Indemnitor to the Administrative Agent or any
other beneficiary pursuant to this Agreement and shall be determined as of
the date on which such payment is made.

            15.2. BENEFIT AMOUNT DEFINED.  For purposes of this Agreement,
the "Benefit Amount" of any Indemnitor as of any date of determination
shall be the net value of the benefits to such Indemnitor and all of its
Subsidiaries (including any Subsidiaries which may be Indemnitors) from
extensions of credit made by the Banks to the Borrower under the Credit
Agreement; provided, that in determining the contribution liability of any
Indemnitor which is a Subsidiary to its direct or indirect parent
corporation or of any Indemnitor to its direct or indirect Subsidiary, the
Benefit Amount of such Subsidiary and its Subsidiaries, if any, shall be
subtracted in determining the Benefit Amount of the parent corporation. 
Such benefits shall include benefits of funds constituting proceeds of
Advances made to the Borrower by the Banks which are in turn advanced or
contributed by the Borrower to such Indemnitor or its Subsidiaries and
benefits of Letters of Credit issued pursuant to the Credit Agreement on
behalf of, or the proceeds of which are advanced or contributed or
otherwise benefit, directly or indirectly, such Indemnitor and its
Subsidiaries (collectively, the "Benefits").  In the case of any proceeds
of Advances or Benefits advanced or contributed to a Person (an "Owned
Entity") any of the equity interests of which are owned directly or
indirectly by an Indemnitor, the Benefit Amount of an Indemnitor with
respect thereto shall be that portion of the net value of the benefits
attributable to Advances or Benefits equal to the direct or indirect
percentage ownership of such Indemnitor in its Owned Entity.

            15.3. CONTRIBUTION OBLIGATION.  Each Indemnitor shall be liable
to a Funding Indemnitor in an amount equal to the greater of (A) the (i)
ratio of the Benefit Amount of such Indemnitor to the total amount of
Obligations, multiplied by (ii) the amount of Obligations paid by such
Funding Indemnitor and (B) 95% of the excess of the fair saleable value of
the property of such Indemnitor over the total liabilities of such
Indemnitor (including the maximum amount reasonably expected to become due
in respect of contingent liabilities) determined as of the date on which
the payment made by a Funding Indemnitor is deemed made for purposes of
this Agreement (giving effect to all payments made by other Funding
Indemnitors as of such date in a manner to maximize the amount of such
contributions).

            15.4. ALLOCATION.  In the event that at any time there exists
more than one Funding Indemnitor with respect to any Contribution (in any
such case, the "Applicable Contribution"), then payment from other
Indemnitors pursuant to this Agreement shall be allocated among such
Funding Indemnitors in proportion to the total amount of the Contribution
made for or on account of the Borrower by each such Funding Indemnitor
pursuant to the Applicable Contribution.  In the event that at any time any
Indemnitor pays an amount under this Agreement in excess of the amount
calculated pursuant to clause (A) of Subsection 15.3 above, that Indemnitor
shall be deemed to be a Funding Indemnitor to the extent of such excess and
shall be entitled to contribution from the other Indemnitors in accordance
with the provisions of this Section.




<PAGE>


            15.5. SUBSIDIARY PAYMENT.  The amount of contribution payable
under this Section by any Indemnitor shall be reduced by the amount of any
contribution paid hereunder by a Subsidiary of such Indemnitor.

            15.6. EQUITABLE ALLOCATION.  If as a result of any
reorganization, recapitalization, or other corporate change in the Borrower
or any of its Subsidiaries, or as a result of any amendment, waiver or
modification of the terms and conditions of other Sections of this
Agreement or the Obligations, or for any other reason, the contributions
under this Section become inequitable as among the Indemnitors, the
Indemnitors shall promptly modify and amend this Section to provide for an
equitable allocation of contributions.  Any of the foregoing modifications
and amendments shall be in writing and signed by all Indemnitors.

            15.7. ASSET OF PARTY TO WHICH CONTRIBUTION IS OWING.  The
Indemnitors acknowledge that the right to contribution hereunder shall
constitute an asset in favor of the Indemnitor to which such contribution
is owing.

            15.8. SUBORDINATION.  No payments payable by an Indemnitor
pursuant to the terms of this Section 15 shall be paid until all amounts
then due and payable by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent, the
Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent, or any Bank, pursuant to the
terms of the Credit Documents, are paid in full in cash.  Nothing contained
in this Section 15 shall affect the obligations of any Indemnitor to the
Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent, or
any Bank under the Credit Agreement or any other Credit Documents.

      16.   MISCELLANEOUS.  If there shall be more than one Indemnitor
hereunder, or pursuant to any other indemnification of Banks relating to
Hazardous Materials arising out of or in connection with the Loan ("Other
Indemnitor"), each Indemnitor and Other Indemnitor agrees that (a) the
obligations of the Indemnitor hereunder, and each Other Indemnitor, are
joint and several, (b) a release of any one or more Indemnitors or Other
Indemnitors or any limitation of this Agreement in favor of or for the
benefit of one or more Indemnitors or Other Indemnitors shall not in any
way be deemed a release of or limitation in favor of or for the benefit of
any other Indemnitor or Other Indemnitor and (c) a separate action
hereunder may be brought and prosecuted against any or all Indemnitors or
Other Indemnitors.  If any term of this Agreement or any application
thereof shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the remainder of this
Agreement and any other application of such term shall not be affected
thereby.  No delay or omission in exercising any right hereunder shall
operate as a waiver of such right or any other right.  This Agreement shall
be binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by Indemnitor
and the Banks, and their respective successors and assigns, including
(without limitation) any assignee or purchaser of all or any portion of the
Banks' interest in (i) the Loan, (ii) the Credit Documents, or (iii) any of
the Properties.

      17.   GOVERNING LAW.  ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN THE INDEMNITOR,  ANY AGENT,
ANY BANK, OR ANY INDEMNITEE ARISING OUT OF, CONNECTED WITH, RELATED TO, OR
INCIDENTAL TO THE RELATIONSHIP ESTABLISHED BETWEEN THEM IN CONNECTION WITH,
THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OF THE OTHER CREDIT DOCUMENTS, AND WHETHER ARISING IN
CONTRACT, TORT, EQUITY, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL BE RESOLVED IN ACCORDANCE WITH
THE INTERNAL LAWS (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, SECTION 5-1401 OF THE
GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAW, BUT OTHERWISE WITHOUT REGARD TO THE CONFLICTS OF

                  GUARANTY AND CONTRIBUTION AGREEMENT


     This Guaranty and Contribution Agreement (this "Agreement") is made
and entered into effective for all purposes as of the 13th day of November,
2000, by the parties signatory hereto or to an Accession Agreement (as
hereinafter defined) (collectively, the "Guarantor" whether one or more) to
and for the benefit of SOCIETE GENERALE, SOUTHWEST AGENCY, as Joint Book
Runner and Administrative Agent (the "Administrative Agent"), BANK OF
MONTREAL, CHICAGO BRANCH as Syndication Agent (the "Syndication Agent"),
DEUTSCHE BANC ALEX. BROWN, as Joint Book Runner and Documentation Agent
("Documentation Agent"), and the banks and other lenders named in the
Credit Agreement herein described.


                             INTRODUCTION

     WHEREAS, this Agreement is given in connection with that certain
Second Amended and Restated Senior Unsecured Credit Agreement dated as of
even date as this Agreement ("Credit Agreement"), among LASALLE HOTEL
OPERATING PARTNERSHIP, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (the
"Borrower"), Administrative Agent, Syndication Agent, Documentation Agent
and the banks and other lenders party thereto (collectively the "Banks");

     WHEREAS, pursuant to the Credit Agreement the Banks are making a
 loan
(the "Loan") to Borrower as more specifically described therein;

     WHEREAS, the Borrower is the principal financing entity for capital
requirements of its Subsidiaries, and from time to time the Borrower has
made and will continue to make capital contributions and advances to its
Subsidiaries, including the Subsidiaries which are or will become parties
hereto.  Other than the Parent, each Guarantor is a direct or indirect
subsidiary of the Borrower.  Each Guarantor will derive substantial direct
and indirect benefit from the transactions contemplated by the Credit
Agreement; and

     WHEREAS, the Banks have required the execution and delivery of this
Agreement as a condition precedent to the execution of the Credit
Agreement.  The Banks would not be willing to execute the Credit Agreement
in the absence of the execution and delivery by Guarantor of this
Agreement.


                               AGREEMENT
                               ---------

     NOW, THEREFORE, in order to induce the Banks to make the Advances and
the Issuing Bank to issue its Letters of Credit, each Guarantor hereby
agrees as follows:

     SECTION 1.  DEFINED TERMS.  All terms used in this Agreement, but not
defined herein, shall have the meaning given such terms in the Credit
Agreement.




<PAGE>


     SECTION 2.  GUARANTY.  Each Guarantor hereby unconditionally and
irrevocably guarantees the punctual payment when due, whether at stated
maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, of all obligations of the Borrower
now or hereafter existing under the Credit Agreement, the Notes and any
other Credit Document, whether for principal, interest, fees, expenses, or
otherwise (such obligations being the "Guaranteed Obligations") and any and
all expenses (including reasonable counsel fees and expenses) incurred by
the Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent,
or any Bank in enforcing any rights under this Agreement.  Each Guarantor
agrees that its guaranty obligation under this Agreement is a guarantee of
payment, not of collection and that such Guarantor is primarily liable for
the payment of the Guaranteed Obligations.

     SECTION 3.  LIMIT OF LIABILITY.  Each Guarantor that is a Subsidiary
of the Borrower shall be liable under this Agreement with respect to the
Guaranteed Obligations only for amounts aggregating up to the largest
amount that would not render its guaranty obligation hereunder subject to
avoidance under Section 548 of the United States Bankruptcy Code or any
comparable provisions of any state law.

     SECTION 4.  GUARANTY ABSOLUTE.  Each Guarantor guarantees that the
Guaranteed Obligations will be paid and performed strictly in accordance
with the terms of the Credit Agreement, the other Credit Documents and the
Participating Leases, as applicable, regardless of any law, regulation, or
order now or hereafter in effect in any jurisdiction affecting any of such
terms or the rights of the Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the
Documentation Agent, the Banks or the Participating Lessees with respect
thereto.  The liability of each Guarantor under this Agreement shall be
absolute and unconditional irrespective of:

     (a)   any lack of validity or enforceability of the Credit Agreement,
any other Credit Document, any Participating Lease or any other agreement
or instrument relating thereto;

     (b)   any change in the time, manner, or place of payment of, or in
any other term of, any of the Guaranteed Obligations, or any other
amendment or waiver of or any consent to departure from the Credit
Agreement, any Credit Document or any Participating Lease;

     (c)   any exchange, release, or nonperfection of any collateral, if
applicable, or any release or amendment or waiver of or consent to
departure from any other agreement or guaranty, for any of the Guaranteed
Obligations; or

     (d)   any other circumstances which might otherwise constitute a
defense available to, or a discharge of the Borrower or a Guarantor.

     SECTION 5.  CONTINUATION AND REINSTATEMENT, ETC.  Each Guarantor
agrees that, to the extent that the Borrower makes payments to the
Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent or any
Bank or the Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation
Agent or any Bank receives any proceeds of any property of Borrower or any
Guarantor and such payments or proceeds or any part thereof are
subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set
aside, or otherwise required to be repaid, then to the extent of such
repayment the Guaranteed Obligations shall be reinstated and continued in
full force and effect as of the date such initial payment or collection of
proceeds occurred.  The Guarantor shall defend and indemnify the
Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent and
each Bank from and against any claim or loss under this Section 5
(including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses) in the defense of any
such action or suit.

     SECTION 6.  CERTAIN WAIVERS.

     6.01  NOTICE.  Each Guarantor hereby waives promptness, diligence,
notice of acceptance, notice of acceleration, notice of intent to
accelerate and any other notice with respect to any of the Guaranteed
Obligations and this Agreement.

     6.02  OTHER REMEDIES.  Each Guarantor hereby waives any requirement
that the Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation
Agent or any Bank protect, secure, perfect, or insure any Lien or any
Property subject thereto or exhaust any right or take any action against
the Borrower or any other Person or any collateral, if any, including any
action required pursuant to a Legal Requirement.

     6.03  WAIVER OF SUBROGATION.

     (a)   Each Guarantor hereby irrevocably waives, until payment in full
of all Guaranteed Obligations and termination of all Commitments, any claim
or other rights which it may acquire against the Borrower that arise from
such Guarantor's obligations under this Agreement or any other Credit
Document, including, without limitation, any right of subrogation
(including, without limitation, any statutory rights of subrogation under
Section 509 of the Bankruptcy Code, 11 U.S.C. Section 509, or otherwise),
reimbursement, exoneration, contribution, indemnification, or any right to
participate in any claim or remedy of the Administrative Agent, the
Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent or any Bank against the Borrower
or any collateral which the Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent,
the Documentation Agent or any Bank now has or acquires.  If any amount
shall be paid to any Guarantor in violation of the preceding sentence and
the Guaranteed Obligations shall not have been paid in full and all of the
Commitments terminated, such amount shall be held in trust for the benefit
of the Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent
or any Bank and shall promptly be paid to the Administrative Agent for the
benefit of Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation
Agent and the Banks to be applied to the Guaranteed Obligations, whether
matured or unmatured, as the Administrative Agent may elect.  Each
Guarantor acknowledges that it will receive direct and indirect benefits
from the financing arrangements contemplated by the Credit Agreement and
that the waiver set forth in this Section 6.03(a) is knowingly made in
contemplation of such benefits.

     (b)   Each Guarantor further agrees that it will not enter into any
agreement providing, directly or indirectly, for any contribution,
reimbursement, repayment, or indemnity by the Borrower or any other Person
on account of any payment by such Guarantor to the Administrative Agent,
the Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent or the Banks under this
Agreement.

     SECTION 7.  REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.  Each Guarantor hereby
represents and warrants as follows:

     7.01  CORPORATE AUTHORITY.  Such Guarantor is either a corporation,
limited liability company, limited partnership or trust duly organized,
validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of
its organization.  The execution, delivery and performance by such
Guarantor of this Agreement are within such Guarantor's organizational
powers, have been duly authorized by all necessary organizational action
and do not contravene (a) such Guarantor's organizational authority or
(b) any law or material contractual restriction affecting such Guarantor or
its Property.

     7.02  GOVERNMENT APPROVAL.  No authorization or approval or other
action by and no notice to or filing with, any Governmental Authority is
required for the due execution, delivery and performance by such Guarantor
of this Agreement.




<PAGE>


     7.03  BINDING OBLIGATIONS.  This Agreement is the legal, valid and
binding obligation of such Guarantor enforceable against such Guarantor in
accordance with its terms subject to the effect of any applicable
bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, or similar law
affecting creditors' rights (whether considered in a proceeding at law or
in equity).

     SECTION 8.  COVENANTS.  Each Guarantor will comply with all covenant
provisions of Article V and Article VI of the Credit Agreement to the
extent such provisions are applicable.

     8.01  ADDITIONAL COVENANT.  As soon as possible and in any event
within five days after the incurrence of any Indebtedness by the Parent or
any Subsidiary of the Parent other than the Obligations or any other
Indebtedness permitted under the Credit Agreement, the Parent shall notify
the Administrative Agent in writing of such incurrence.

     SECTION 9.  CONTRIBUTION.  As a result of the transactions
contemplated by the Credit Agreement, each of the Guarantors will benefit,
directly and indirectly, from the Guaranteed Obligations and in
consideration thereof desire to enter into a contribution agreement among
themselves as set forth in this Section 9 to allocate such benefits among
themselves and to provide a fair and equitable arrangement to make
contributions in the event any payment is made by any Guarantor hereunder
to the Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent
or the Banks (such payment being referred to herein as a "Contribution,"
and for purposes of this Agreement, includes any exercise of recourse by
the Administrative Agent against any Property of a Guarantor and
application of proceeds of such Property in satisfaction of such
Guarantor's obligations under this Agreement).  The Guarantors hereby agree
as follows:

     9.01  CALCULATION OF CONTRIBUTION.  In order to provide for just and
equitable contribution among the Guarantors in the event any Contribution
is made by a Guarantor (a "Funding Guarantor"), such Funding Guarantor
shall be entitled to a contribution from certain other Guarantors for all
payments, damages and expenses incurred by that Funding Guarantor in
discharging any of the Guaranteed Obligations, in the manner and to the
extent set forth in this Section.  The amount of any Contribution under
this Agreement shall be equal to the payment made by the Funding Guarantor
to the Administrative Agent or any other beneficiary pursuant to this
Agreement and shall be determined as of the date on which such payment is
made.

     9.02  BENEFIT AMOUNT DEFINED.  For purposes of this Agreement, the
"Benefit Amount" of any Guarantor as of any date of determination shall be
the net value of the benefits to such Guarantor and all of its Subsidiaries
(including any Subsidiaries which may be Guarantors) from extensions of
credit made by the Banks to the Borrower under the Credit Agreement and the
benefit of entering into the Participating Leases; provided, that in
determining the contribution liability of any Guarantor which is a
Subsidiary to its direct or indirect parent corporation or of any Guarantor
to its direct or indirect Subsidiary, the Benefit Amount of such Subsidiary
and its Subsidiaries, if any, shall be subtracted in determining the
Benefit Amount of the parent corporation. Such benefits shall include
benefits of funds constituting proceeds of Advances made to the Borrower by
the Banks which are in turn advanced or contributed by the Borrower to such
Guarantor or its Subsidiaries and benefits of Letters of Credit issued
pursuant to the Credit Agreement on behalf of, or the proceeds of which are
advanced or contributed or otherwise benefit, directly or indirectly, such
Guarantor and its Subsidiaries (collectively, the "Benefits").  In the case
of any proceeds of Advances or Benefits advanced or contributed to a Person
(an "Owned Entity") any of the equity interests of which are owned directly
or indirectly by a Guarantor, the Benefit Amount of a Guarantor with
respect thereto shall be that portion of the net value of the benefits
attributable to Advances or Benefits equal to the direct or indirect
percentage ownership of such Guarantor in its Owned Entity.




<PAGE>


     9.03  CONTRIBUTION OBLIGATION.  Each Guarantor shall be liable to a
Funding Guarantor in an amount equal to the greater of (A) the (i) ratio of
the Benefit Amount of such Guarantor to the total amount of Guaranteed
Obligations, multiplied by (ii) the amount of Guaranteed Obligations paid
by such Funding Guarantor and (B) 95% of the excess of the fair saleable
value of the property of such Guarantor over the total liabilities of such
Guarantor (including the maximum amount reasonably expected to become due
in respect of contingent liabilities) determined as of the date on which
the payment made by a Funding Guarantor is deemed made for purposes of this
Agreement (giving effect to all payments made by other Funding Guarantors
as of such date in a manner to maximize the amount of such contributions).

     9.04  ALLOCATION.  In the event that at any time there exists more
than one Funding Guarantor with respect to any Contribution (in any such
case, the "Applicable Contribution"), then payment from other Guarantors
pursuant to this Agreement shall be allocated among such Funding Guarantors
in proportion to the total amount of the Contribution made for or on
account of the Borrower by each such Funding Guarantor pursuant to the
Applicable Contribution.  In the event that at any time any Guarantor pays
an amount under this Agreement in excess of the amount calculated pursuant
to clause (A) of Subsection 9.03 above, that Guarantor shall be deemed to
be a Funding Guarantor to the extent of such excess and shall be entitled
to contribution from the other Guarantors in accordance with the provisions
of this Section.

     9.05  SUBSIDIARY PAYMENT.  The amount of contribution payable under
this Section by any Guarantor shall be reduced by the amount of any
contribution paid hereunder by a Subsidiary of such Guarantor.

     9.06  EQUITABLE ALLOCATION.  If as a result of any reorganization,
recapitalization, or other corporate change in the Borrower or any of its
Subsidiaries, or as a result of any amendment, waiver or modification of
the terms and conditions of other Sections of this Agreement or the
Guaranteed Obligations, or for any other reason, the contributions under
this Section become inequitable as among the Guarantors, the Guarantors
shall promptly modify and amend this Section to provide for an equitable
allocation of contributions.  Any of the foregoing modifications and
amendments shall be in writing and signed by all Guarantors.

     9.07  ASSET OF PARTY TO WHICH CONTRIBUTION IS OWING.  The Guarantors
acknowledge that the right to contribution hereunder shall constitute an
asset in favor of the Guarantor to which such contribution is owing.

     9.08  SUBORDINATION.  No payments payable by a Guarantor pursuant to
the terms of this Section 9 shall be paid until all amounts then due and
payable by the Borrower to any Bank, pursuant to the terms of the Credit
Documents, are paid in full in cash.  Nothing contained in this Section 9
shall affect the obligations of any Guarantor to any Bank under the Credit
Agreement or any other Credit Documents.



<PAGE>


     SECTION 10. MISCELLANEOUS.

     10.01 ADDRESSES FOR NOTICES.  All notices and other communications
provided for hereunder shall be in writing, including telegraphic
communication and delivered or teletransmitted to the Administrative Agent,
as set forth in the Credit Agreement and to each Guarantor, at the address
set forth under such Guarantor's signature hereto or in the Accession
Agreement executed by such Guarantor, or to such other address as shall be
designated by any Guarantor or the Administrative Agent in written notice
to the other parties.  All such notices and other communications shall be
effective when delivered or teletransmitted to the above addresses.

     10.02 AMENDMENTS, ETC.  No waiver of any provision of this Agreement
nor consent to any departure by any Guarantor therefrom shall be effective
unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the Administrative Agent,
the Required Lenders and the Borrower and no amendment of this Agreement
shall be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by each
Guarantor and the Administrative Agent, with the consent of the Required
Lenders; PROVIDED that any amendment or waiver releasing any Guarantor from
any liability hereunder shall be signed by all the Banks; and PROVIDED
FURTHER that any waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific
instance and for the specific purpose for which given.  Notwithstanding the
foregoing, in the event that any Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Borrower
hereafter is required in accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement
or otherwise agrees to become a guarantor of the Borrower's obligations
under the Credit Documents, then such Subsidiary or Affiliate may become a
party to this Agreement by executing an Accession Agreement ("Accession
Agreement") in the form attached hereto as ANNEX 1 and each Guarantor and
the Administrative Agent hereby agrees that upon such Subsidiary's or
Affiliate's execution of such Accession Agreement, this Agreement shall be
deemed to have been amended to make such Person a Guarantor hereunder for
all purposes and a party hereto and no signature is required on behalf of
the other Guarantors or the Administrative Agent to make such an amendment
to this Agreement effective.

     10.03 NO WAIVER; REMEDIES.  No failure on the part of Administrative
Agent, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent or any Bank to
exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right hereunder shall operate as
a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right
hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of
any other right.  The remedies herein provided are cumulative and not
exclusive of any remedies provided by law.

     10.04 RIGHT OF SET-OFF.  Upon the occurrence and during the
continuance of any Event of Default, the Administrative Agent, the
Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent and the Banks are hereby
authorized at any time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off
and apply any deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or
final) and other indebtedness owing by the Administrative Agent, the
Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent or the Banks to the account of
any Guarantor against any and all of the obligations of such Guarantor
under this Agreement, irrespective of whether or not the Administrative
Agent, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent or the Banks shall
have made any demand under this Agreement and although such obligations may
be contingent and unmatured.  The Administrative Agent, the Syndication
Agent, the Documentation Agent and the Banks agree promptly to notify each
Guarantor affected by any such set-off after any such set-off and
application made by the Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the
Documentation Agent or the Banks provided that the failure to give such
notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application.  The
rights of the Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the
Documentation Agent and the Banks under this Section 10.04 are in addition
to other rights and remedies (including, without limitation, other rights
of set-off) which the Administrative Agent, the Syndication Agent, the
Documentation Agent and the Banks may have.




<PAGE>


     10.05 CONTINUING GUARANTY; TRANSFER OF INTEREST.  This Agreement
shall create a continuing guaranty and shall (a) remain in full force and
effect until payment in full and termination of the Guaranteed Obligations,
(b) be binding upon each Guarantor, its successors and assigns, and
(c) inure, together with the rights and remedies of the Administrative
Agent hereunder, to the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the
Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent and the Banks and their
respective successors, transferees and assigns.  Without limiting the
generality of the foregoing clause, when any Bank assigns or otherwise
transfers any interest held by it under the Credit Agreement or other
Credit Document to any other Person pursuant to the terms of the Credit
Agreement or other Credit Document, that other Person shall thereupon
become vested with all the benefits held by such Bank under this Agreement.

Upon the payment in full and termination of the Guaranteed Obligations, the
guaranties granted hereby shall terminate and all rights hereunder shall
revert to each Guarantor to the extent such rights have not been applied
pursuant to the terms hereof.  Upon any such termination, the
Administrative Agent will, at each Guarantor's expense, execute and deliver
to such Guarantor such documents as such Guarantor shall reasonably request
and take any other actions reasonably requested to evidence or effect such
termination.

     10.06 GOVERNING LAW.  ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN THE GUARANTOR,  ANY AGENT,
ANY BANK, OR ANY INDEMNITEE ARISING OUT OF, CONNECTED WITH, RELATED TO, OR

between Borrower and Lender.  Initially, the target balance under the
Treasury Management Service Agreement and related documents will be
$100,000 and will be adjusted from time to time as agreed to by Borrower
and Lender.  In the event of any conflict between terms of this Note and
the Treasury Management Services Master Agreement and such other agreements
related thereto, the terms of this Note will control.

      3.3   Borrower may on any Business Day elect to convert all or any
portion of any Advance into an Advance or Advances having a different
Interest Rate ("Conversion") upon delivering to Lender of a written notice
requesting such Conversion not later than 11 o'clock a.m. (Cincinnati time)
on the Business Day of the proposed Conversion; provided, however, that any
Conversion of any Libor Rate Advance will be made effective only on the
last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto prior to Lender's
receipt of such request for Conversion.

      3.4   Borrower may borrow, repay and reborrow under this Note subject
to the terms, conditions and limits set forth herein.  Lender is authorized
to record in its books and records the date and amount of each Advance and
payment hereunder, Interest Rate of each Advance and other information
related thereto, which books and records will constitute PRIMA FACIE
evidence of the accuracy of the information so recorded; PROVIDED, however,
that failure of Lender to record, or any error in recording, any such
information will not relieve Borrower of any of its obligations under this
Note or any of the other Loan Documents.

      3.5   Lender hereby is authorized, at any time and from time to time,
to make an advance under this Note for the payment on behalf of Borrower of
any principal, interest, fees or other sums due under this Note or any of
the Loan Documents.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lender is not obligated
to make any such Advance.

      3.6   Each request of Borrower for a Conversion or an Advance will be
subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Note and the Loan
Documents.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Lender will
have no duty to make any Advance or allow any Conversion if after giving
effect thereto the aggregate outstanding principal balance under this Note
would exceed the Total Facility, or any other maximum amount limits set
forth herein or in any of the Loan Documents, or if any other term or
condition applicable hereunder or thereunder is not satisfied; and Borrower
also will not be entitled to any Advance or Conversion under this Note
after (i) maturity (whether by stated maturity, acceleration or otherwise),
(ii) any Event of Default, or (iii) any Default.

      3.7   If at any time or times Lender determines (which determination
will be conclusive and binding) that (i) by reason of circumstances
affecting the interbank eurodollar market, adequate and reasonable means do
not exist for ascertaining the Libor Rate, or (ii) that the Libor Rate will
not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to Lender of maintaining or
funding Libor Rate Advances, Lender promptly will give notice of such
determination and the basis therefor to Borrower.  If such notice is given,
and until such notice has been withdrawn by Lender, no additional Libor
Rate Advances will be made and no additional Conversions to Libor Rate
Advances will be permitted.

      3.8   Notwithstanding any other provisions herein, if any law,
treaty, rule or regulation, or determination of a court, governmental
authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the
interpretation or administration thereof (whether or not having the force
of law), or any change therein or in the interpretation or application
thereof, makes it unlawful or impossible for Lender to make or maintain
Libor Rate Advances, no additional Libor Rate Advances will be made, no
additional Conversions thereto will be permitted and outstanding Libor Rate
Advances will be converted to Adjusted Base Rate Advances on either (i) the
last day of the applicable Interest Period for such Advance if Lender may
continue to maintain such Advance until such day or (ii) immediately if
Lender may not continue to maintain such Advances.

4.  PAYMENTS AND APPLICATION OF PAYMENTS.

      4.1   Accrued interest will be due and payable the first day of each
month and will be paid by a debit to Borrower's checking account with
Lender if sufficient funds are available; and if sufficient funds are not
available, amounts due will be paid by an Advance hereunder provided such
Advance will not cause the principal outstanding hereunder to exceed the
Total Facility.

      4.2   The entire outstanding principal balance of all Advances and
all accrued and unpaid interest thereon will be due and payable on December
31, 2003 (the "Maturity Date").

      4.3   Payments received will be applied in the following order:  (i)
to repayment of any amounts owed to Lender for charges, fees and expenses
under this Agreement (including reasonable attorneys' fees), (ii) to
accrued interest, and (iii) to principal.

      4.4   Prepayments of Advances in full or in part may be made under
this Note at any time; provided that each such payment will be applied in
the foregoing order and, to the extent applied to principal, will be
applied to the net balance of principal due at maturity.

5.    LATE PAYMENTS.  If Borrower fails to make any payment of principal,
interest or other amount coming due pursuant to the provisions of this Note
within 5 calendar days of the date due and payable, Borrower also shall pay
to Lender a late charge equal to the greater 2% of the amount of such
payment or $50.00 (the "Late Charge").

6.    PROCEEDS.  Borrower acknowledges that the proceeds of this Note will
be used exclusively for business or commercial purposes and no portion of
such proceeds will be used for personal, family, educational, or household
purposes.

      6.1   EVENTS CAUSING NOTE TO BECOME DUE.  The occurrence of any of
the following events will be deemed to be an "Event of Default" under this
Note:  (i) the non-payment of any sums when due under this Note within all
applicable grace periods; (ii) the occurrence of any Event of Default (as
defined in any of the following) or a default under any of the following
that does not have a defined set of "Events of Default" and the lapse of
any notice or cure period provided with respect to such default in any of
the following: any other debt, liability or obligation to Lender of
Borrower or any Guarantor, including but not limited to any of the
foregoing arising under the Loan Documents or any other documents now or in
the future securing the obligations of Borrower or any Guarantor to Lender;
(iii) the revocation or attempted revocation, in whole or in part, of any
guarantee by any Guarantor; (iv) any representation or warranty made by
Borrower or any Guarantor to Lender in any document, including but not
limited to the Loan, is false or erroneous in any material respect; (v) the
failure of Borrower or any Guarantor to observe or perform any covenant or
other agreement with Lender contained in any document, including but not
limited to the Loan Documents and (vi) the occurrence of an Event of
Default (as defined therein) under the Senior Unsecured Credit Agreement
regardless of whether or not such event of Default is waived by the Lenders
under the Senior Unsecured Credit Agreement or whether or note the Senior
Unsecured Credit Agreement is terminated or no longer in effect. 
Immediately and automatically upon any Event of Default relating to a
bankruptcy filing by or against Borrower,






                                       5



<PAGE>


            or, at the option of Lender upon the occurrence of any other
Event of Default hereunder, in either case without demand or notice of any
kind (which are hereby expressly waived):  (a) the outstanding principal
balance hereunder together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon,
and any additional amounts secured by the Loan Documents, will be
accelerated and become immediately due and payable, (b) Borrower will pay
to Lender all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable
attorneys' fees) incurred by Lender in connection with Lender's efforts to
collect the indebtedness evidenced hereby, (c) Lender may offset any apply
to all or any part of the indebtedness evidenced hereby all monies, credits
and other property of any nature whatsoever of Borrower now or hereafter in
the possession of, in transit to or from, under the control or custody of
or on deposit with (whether held by Borrower individually or jointly with
another party), Lender or any affiliate of Lender, and (d) Lender may
exercise from time to time any of the rights and remedies available to
Lender under the Loan Documents or applicable law.  Upon and after the
occurrence of any Event of Default or the maturity of this Note (by
acceleration or otherwise), the principal balance of this Note, together
with any arrearage of interest, will bear interest until paid in full,
whether before or after judgment, at a rate per annum equal to the Default
Rate.  Borrower, all other makers, co-signers and indorser waive
presentment, demand, protest, and notice of demand, protest, non-payment
and dishonor.  Borrower also waives all defenses based on suretyship or
impairment of collateral.

7.    MISCELLANEOUS.

      7.1   Both the Late Charge and the Default Rate are imposed as
liquidated damages for the purpose of defraying Lender's expenses incident
to the handling of delinquent payments, but are in addition to, and not in
lieu of, Lender's exercise of any rights and remedies hereunder, under the
other Loan Documents or under applicable law, and any fees and expenses of
any agents or any reasonable fees and charges of any attorneys which Lender
may employ.  In addition, the Default Rate reflects the increased credit
risk to Lender of carrying a loan that is in default.  Borrower agrees that
the Late Charge and Default Rate are reasonable forecasts of just
compensation for anticipated and actual harm incurred by Lender, and that
the actual harm incurred by Lender cannot be estimated with certainty and
without difficulty.

      7.2   Nothing contained in this Note regarding late charges or the
Default Rate will be construed in any way to extend the due date of any
payment or waive any payment default, and each such right is in addition
to, and not in lieu of, the other any other rights and remedies of Lender
hereunder, under any of the Loan Documents or under applicable law
(including, without limitation, the right to interest, reasonable
attorneys' fees and other expenses).

      7.3   This Note will bind Borrower and the heirs, executors,
administrators, successors and assigns of Borrower, and the benefits hereof
will inure to the benefit of Lender and its successors and assigns.  All
references herein to the "Borrower" and "Lender" will include the
respective heirs, administrators, successors and assigns thereof; provided,
however, that Borrower may not assign this Note in whole or in part without
the prior written consent of Lender and Lender at any time may assign this
Note in whole or in part (but no assignment by the Lender of less than all
of this Note will operate to relieve Borrower from any duty to Lender with
respect to the unassigned portion of this Note).



                                       6



<PAGE>


      7.4   If any provision of this Note is prohibited by or invalid under
applicable law, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent of
such prohibition or invalidity without invalidating the remainder of such
provision and without invalidating any other provision in this Note;
provided however, that if the provision that is the subject of such
invalidity or prohibition pertains to repayment of this Note, then, at the
option of Lender, all of the obligations hereunder will become immediately
due and payable.

      7.5   Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if from any
circumstances whatsoever the fulfillment of any provision of this Note
involves transcending the limit of validity prescribed by any applicable
usury statute or any other applicable law with regard to obligations of
like character and amount, then the obligation to be fulfilled will be
reduced to the limit of such validity as provided in such statute or law,
so that in no event will any exaction of interest be possible under this
Note in excess of the limit of such validity and the right to demand any
such excess is hereby expressly waived by Lender.  As used in this
paragraph, "applicable usury statute" and "applicable law" mean such
statute and law in effect on the date hereof, subject to any change therein
that results in a higher permissible rate of interest.

      7.6   No delay or failure on the part of Lender to exercise any
right, remedy or power hereunder, under any of the Loan Documents or under
applicable law will impair or waive any such right, remedy or power (or any
other right, remedy or power), be considered a waiver of or an acquiescence
in any breach, Default or Event of Default or affect any other or
subsequent breach, Default or Event of Default of the same or a different
nature.  No waiver of any breach, Default or Event of Default, nor any
modification, waiver, discharge or termination of any provision of this
Note, nor consent to any departure by Borrower therefrom, will be
established by conduct, custom or course of dealing; and no modification,
waiver, discharge, termination or consent will in any event be effective
unless the same is in writing, signed by Lender and specifically refers to
this Note, and then such modification, waiver, discharge or termination or
consent will be effective only in the specific instance and for the
specific purpose for which given.  No notice to or demand on Borrower in
any case will entitle Borrower to any other or further notice or demand in
the same or any similar or other circumstance.

      7.7   No single or partial exercise of any right or remedy by Lender
will preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any
other right or remedy.  All remedies hereunder, under any Loan Document or
any other instrument or document now or hereafter evidencing, securing,
guaranteeing or relating to this Note, or now or hereafter existing at law
or in equity are cumulative and none of them will be exclusive of the
others or of any other right or remedy.  All such rights and remedies may
be exercised separately, successively, concurrently, independently or
cumulatively from time to time and as often and in such order as Lender may
deem appropriate.













                                       7



<PAGE>


      7.8   If any ant time all or any part of any payment or transfer of
any kind received by Lender with respect to all or any part of this Note is
repaid, set aside or invalidated by reason of any judgment, decree or order
of any court or administrative body, or by reason of any agreement,
settlement or compromise of any claim made at any time with respect to the
repayment, recovery, setting aside or invalidation of all or any part of
such payment or transfer, Borrower's obligations under this Note will
continue (and/or be reinstated) and Borrower will be and remain liable, and
will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Lender for, the amount or amounts
so repaid, recovered, set aside or invalidated and all other claims,
demands, liabilities, judgments, losses, damages, costs and expenses
incurred in connection therewith.  The provisions of this Section will be
and remain effective notwithstanding any contrary action which may have
been taken by Borrower in reliance upon such payment or transfer, and any
such contrary action so taken will be without prejudice to Lender's rights
hereunder and will be deemed to have been conditioned upon such payment or
transfer having become final and irrevocable.  The provisions of this
Section will survive any termination, cancellation or discharge of this
Note.

      7.9   Time is of the essence in the performance of this Note.

      7.10  This Note has been delivered and accepted at and will be deemed
to have been made at Cincinnati, Ohio and will be interpreted and the
rights and liabilities of the parties hereto determined in accordance with
the laws of the State of Ohio, without regard to conflicts of law
principles.

      7.11  Borrower hereby irrevocably agrees and submits to the exclusive
jurisdiction of any state or federal court located within Hamilton County,
Ohio, or, at the option of Lender in its sole discretion, of any state or
federal court(s) located within any other county, state or jurisdiction in
which Lender at any time or from time to time chooses in its sole
discretion to bring an action or otherwise exercise a right or remedy, and
Borrower waives any objection based on FORUM NON CONVENIENS and any
objection to venue of any such action or proceeding.  Borrower hereby
irrevocably consents that all service of process be made by certified mail
directed to Borrower at its address set forth herein for notices and
service so made will be deemed to be completed the earlier of Borrower's
actual receipt thereof or five (5) business days after the same has been
deposited in U.S. Mails, postage prepaid.  Nothing contained herein will
prevent Lender from serving process in any other manner permitted by law. 
Borrower and Lender each waive any right to trial by jury in any action or
proceeding relating to this Note, the Loan Documents, the collateral
described therein, or any actual or proposed transaction or other matter
contemplated in or relating to any of the foregoing.

                               GUARANTY
                       (Commercial Real Estate)


     In consideration of the extension of credit by FIRSTAR BANK, NATIONAL
ASSOCIATION, a national banking association under the laws of the United
States of America ("Lender"), whose mailing address is c/o Commercial Real
Estate Department, 425 Walnut Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202, to LASALLE
HOTEL LESSEE, INC. ("Borrower"), and other good and valuable consideration,
the receipt of which is acknowledged, the undersigned, jointly and
severally if more than one, hereby guarantees to Lender the prompt
performance and payment of all indebtedness, interest, principal,
liabilities and obligations of Borrower to Lender pursuant to Borrower's
note ("Note") in the principal amount of $5,000,000 of even date herewith
and all amendments thereto and restatements and extensions thereof
(hereinafter collectively referred to as the "Obligations").  This is a
Guaranty of payment and performance and not of collection.  Without
limiting the foregoing, the undersigned, absolutely, irrevocably and
unconditionally indemnifies and saves Lender harmless from and against all
liabilities, suits, proceedings, actions, claims, assertions, charges,
demands, delays, injuries, expenses (including
 reasonable attorney fees and
disbursements) which are incurred by Lender as a result of any allegation
or determination that the Obligations involve a fraudulent conveyance,
transfer or obligation under federal or state law.

     This is an absolute, irrevocable, unconditional and continuing
Guaranty of the Obligations.  This Guaranty will extend to and cover
renewals of the Obligations and any number of extensions of time for
payment thereof and will not be affected by any surrender, exchange,
acceptance, or release by Lender of any other guarantee or any security
held by it for any of the Obligations.  Notice of acceptance of this
Guaranty, notice of extensions of credit to the Borrower from time to time,
notice of default, diligence, presentment, protest, demand for payment,
notice of demand or protest, and any defense based upon a failure of Lender
to comply with the notice requirements of the applicable version of Uniform
Commercial Code Section 9-504 are hereby waived.  Lender at any time and
from time to time, without the consent of the undersigned, may change the
manner, place or terms of payment of or interest rates on, or change or
extend the time of payment, or renew or alter, any of the Obligations,
without impairing or releasing the liabilities of the undersigned
hereunder.  Lender in its sole discretion may determine the reasonableness
of the period which may elapse prior to the making of demand for any
payment upon the undersigned, but in no event shall such period be less
than fifteen (15) days.  Lender need not pursue any of its remedies against
said Borrower before having recourse against the undersigned under this
Guaranty.

     The undersigned hereby grants the Lender a security interest in all
deposits and account balances and credits of the undersigned or other sums
credited by or due from the Lender to the undersigned in the possession of
or in transit to Lender, now existing or hereafter arising or coming due
(including without limitation certificates of deposit, repurchase
agreements and securities in transit), and such amounts and all proceeds
thereof may at all times be held and treated as collateral security
hereunder ("Collateral"), it being understood that, unless and until an
Event of Default has occurred under the Note, no restrictions, setoff, or
similar provisions shall be enforced against the Collateral, or the
undersigned's use, transfer or replacement of the Collateral.  Further,
undersigned agrees at any time at the Lender's request, to sign financing
statements, trust receipts, security agreements or other documents deemed
by Lender as reasonably necessary to evidence, perfect, secure, preserve,
protect and/or enforce this Guaranty and existing or additional security
interests in the Collateral created in Lender hereunder or otherwise.


                                   1



<PAGE>


     To the extent the Obligations are due and payable, and unpaid, and at
any time thereafter, Lender shall have all the rights and remedies as
against the Collateral of a secured party and further, Lender may apply or
set-off such Collateral against the Obligations as the Lender deems
appropriate, and/or refuse to honor orders to pay or withdraw the
Collateral or sums represented thereby, all at Lender's sole and absolute
discretion.

     The undersigned is presently informed of the financial condition of
the Borrower and of all other circumstances which a diligent inquiry would
reveal and which bear upon the risk of non-payment or performance of the
Obligations.

     If any demand is made at any time upon Lender for the repayment or
recovery of any amount or amounts received by it in payment or on account
of any of the Obligations and if Lender repays all or any part of such
amount or amounts by reason of any judgment, decree or order of any court
or administrative body or by reason of any settlement or compromise of any
such demand, the undersigned will be and remain liable hereunder for the
amount or amounts so repaid or recovered to the same extent as if such
amount or amounts had never been received originally by Lender.

     Unless and until Lender shall consent in writing to a modification,
the undersigned shall have no right of subrogation against Borrower by
reason of any payments or acts of performance by the undersigned in
compliance with the obligations of the undersigned hereunder.  The
undersigned hereby irrevocably waives all legal and equitable rights to
recover from Borrower any sums paid by the undersigned under the terms of
this Guaranty.  Undersigned further agrees not to transfer any of its
assets without fair and adequate consideration, except for gifts made in
the ordinary course to spouse or children, or as otherwise agreed to in
writing by Lender.

     The undersigned shall pay to Lender all reasonable attorneys' fees
and costs of litigation in connection with the enforcement of the terms of
this Guaranty.

     The undersigned will provide Lender with current financial statements
annually within 90 days after the end of each calendar year, or upon
request, in form and detail reasonably satisfactory to Lender and all in
compliance with the terms of the Mortgage.  This Guaranty shall be binding
upon the undersigned and the personal representatives, heirs, successors
and assigns thereof and inure to the benefit of Lender and its successors
and assigns.

     Upon sale, transfer, or assignment of the above stated Note by Lender
to any third party (the "Third Party"), this Guaranty may also be assigned
by Lender to the Third Party and the undersigned acknowledges liability
under this Guaranty to such Third Party.

     This Guaranty may not be changed orally, and no obligation of the
undersigned can be released or waived by Lender, except in writing signed
by a duly authorized officer of Lender.

















                                   2

     This Guaranty shall be construed and enforced pursuant to the laws of
the State of Ohio.
