3




Obligations.  This Guaranty may be enforced by Lender and any subsequent holder of the Note and shall not be discharged by the assignment or negotiation of all or part of the Note.

1.4.          Guaranteed Obligations Not Reduced by Offset.  The Guaranteed Obligations and the liabilities and obligations of Guarantor to Lender hereunder shall not be reduced, discharged or released because or by reason of any existing or future offset, claim or defense (other than payment in full) of Borrower or any other party against Lender or against payment of the Guaranteed Obligations, whether such offset, claim or defense arises in connection with the Guaranteed Obligations (or the transactions creating the Guaranteed Obligations) or otherwise.

1.5.          Lender’s Right to Perform.  In the event that Guarantor shall fail or refuse to observe, perform and satisfy all of Borrower’s obligations, duties, covenants and agreements under the Loan Agreement, the other Loan Documents and the Project Documents with respect to Final Completion of the Renovation Project (or fail or refuse to cause Borrower to so observe, perform and satisfy) or shall otherwise fail or refuse to pay or perform any of the Guaranteed Obligations, in each case fully, completely and punctually, Lender may, from and after the occurrence of an Event of Default and during the continued existence thereof at its option, observe, perform and/or satisfy any of such obligations, duties, covenants and agreements (or cause any of such obligations to be so observed, performed and/or satisfied) or otherwise pay or perform or cause the payment and performance of any of the Guaranteed Obligations and in connection therewith, take possession of the Project and cause Final Completion of the Renovation Project, in which case Guarantor, upon demand by Lender, shall (x) pay any and all costs, expenses, liabilities and claims with respect thereto, (y) cause any claim or Lien in connection therewith to be bonded, discharged, released or paid and (z) reimburse Lender in lawful money of the United States for all sums paid and all costs, expenses or liabilities incurred by Lender in connection therewith (which payments shall be included within the meaning of Guaranteed Obligations hereunder).

1.6.          Payment by Guarantor.  If all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations shall not be punctually paid and performed when due, Guarantor shall, immediately upon demand by Lender and without presentment, protest, notice of protest, notice of non-payment or any other notice whatsoever, pay in lawful money of the United States of America the amount due on the Guaranteed Obligations  (including, without limitation, any amounts due pursuant to Section 1.5 hereof) to Lender at Lender’s address as set forth herein.  Such demand(s) may be made at any time coincident after the time for payment and performance of all or part of the Guaranteed Obligations and may be made from time to time with respect to the same or different items of Guaranteed Obligations.  Such demand shall be made, given and received in accordance with the notice provisions hereof.  If the amount due on the Guaranteed Obligations (including, without limitation, any amounts due pursuant to Section 1.5 hereof) is not paid to Lender within ten (10) Business Days after demand by Lender, the same shall bear interest at the Default Rate from the date of demand until the date all of the Guaranteed Obligations (including, without limitation, any amounts due pursuant to Section 1.5 hereof) have been paid (which interest shall be included within the meaning of Guaranteed Obligations).

1.7.          No Duty to Pursue Others.  It shall not be necessary for Lender (and Guarantor hereby waives any rights which Guarantor may have to require Lender), in order to enforce the

4




obligations of Guarantor hereunder, first to (i) institute suit or exhaust its remedies against Borrower or others liable on the Loan or the Guaranteed Obligations or any other person, (ii) enforce Lender’s rights against any collateral which shall ever have been given to secure the Loan, (iii) enforce Lender’s rights against any other guarantors of the Guaranteed Obligations, (iv) join Borrower or any others liable on the Guaranteed Obligations in any action seeking to enforce this Guaranty, (v) exhaust any remedies available to Lender against any collateral which shall ever have been given to secure the Loan, or (vi) resort to any other means of obtaining payment of the Guaranteed Obligations.

1.8.          Waivers.  Guarantor agrees to the provisions of this Guaranty and hereby waives notice of (i) any loans or advances made by Lender to Borrower, (ii) acceptance of this Guaranty, (iii) any amendment or extension of the Note, the Mortgage and any other security instrument, the Loan Agreement or of any other Loan Documents, (iv) the execution and delivery by Borrower and Lender of any other loan or credit agreement or of Borrower’s execution and delivery of any promissory notes or other documents arising under the Loan Documents or in connection with the Property, (v) the occurrence of any breach by Borrower or an Event of Default, (vi) Lender’s transfer or disposition of the Guaranteed Obligations, or any part thereof, (vii) sale or foreclosure (or posting or advertising for sale or foreclosure) of any collateral for the Guaranteed Obligations, (viii) protest, proof of non-payment or default by Borrower, and (ix)  generally, all demands and notices of every kind in connection with this Guaranty, the Loan Documents, any documents or agreements evidencing, securing or relating to any of the Guaranteed Obligations and the obligations hereby guaranteed.

1.9.          Payment of Expenses.  In the event that Guarantor should breach or fail to timely perform any provisions of this Guaranty, Guarantor shall, immediately upon demand by Lender, pay Lender all costs and expenses (including court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Lender in the enforcement hereof or the preservation of Lender’s rights hereunder.  If the amount due is not paid to Lender as aforesaid within ten (10) Business Days after written demand by Lender, the same shall bear interest at the Default Rate from the date of demand until the date such amounts due hereunder have been paid in full (which interest shall be included within the meaning of Guaranteed Obligations).

1.10.        Effect of Bankruptcy.  In the event that pursuant to any insolvency, bankruptcy, reorganization, receivership or other debtor relief law or any judgment, order or decision thereunder, Lender must rescind or restore any payment or any part thereof received by Lender in satisfaction of the Guaranteed Obligations, as set forth herein, any prior release or discharge from the terms of this Guaranty given to Guarantor by Lender shall be without effect and this Guaranty shall remain in full force and effect.  It is the intention of Borrower and Guarantor that Guarantor’s obligations hereunder shall not be discharged except by Guarantor’s performance of such obligations and then only to the extent of such performance.

1.11.        Waiver of Subrogation, Reimbursement and Contribution. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Guaranty, until the Loan is paid in full, Guarantor hereby unconditionally and irrevocably waives, releases and abrogates any and all rights it may now or hereafter have under any agreement, at law or in equity (including, without limitation, any law subrogating Guarantor to the rights of Lender), to assert any claim against or seek

5




contribution, indemnification or any other form of reimbursement from Borrower or any other party liable for payment of any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations for any payment made by Guarantor under or in connection with this Guaranty.  Nothing herein prohibits payment of the Guarantee Fee as and when Borrower is permitted to do so under the Loan Agreement and the Guarantee Fee Agreement.

5.1.          Subordination of Guarantor Claims.  As used herein, the term “Guarantor Claims” shall mean all debts and liabilities of Borrower to Guarantor, whether such debts and liabilities now exist or are hereafter incurred or arise, or whether the obligations of Borrower thereon be direct, contingent, primary, secondary, several, joint and several, or otherwise, and irrespective of whether such debts or liabilities be evidenced by note, contract, open account, or otherwise, and irrespective of the Person in whose favor such debts or liabilities may, at their inception, have been, or may hereafter be created, or the manner in which they have been or may hereafter be acquired by Guarantor.  The Guarantor Claims shall include without limitation all rights and claims of Guarantor against Borrower (arising as a result of subrogation or otherwise) as a result of Guarantor’s payment of all or a portion of the Guaranteed Obligations.  After the occurrence of and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Guarantor shall not receive or collect, directly or indirectly, from Borrower or any other party any amount upon the Guarantor Claims until payment in full of the Debt.

5.2.          Claims in Bankruptcy.  In the event of any receivership, bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, debtor’s relief, or other insolvency proceedings involving Guarantor as debtor, Lender shall have the right to prove its claim in any such proceeding so as to establish its rights hereunder and receive directly from the receiver, trustee or other court custodian dividends and payments which would otherwise be payable upon Guarantor Claims.  Guarantor hereby assigns such dividends and payments to Lender.  Should Lender receive, for application against the Guaranteed Obligations, any dividend or payment which is otherwise payable to Guarantor and which, as between Borrower and Guarantor, shall constitute a credit against the Guarantor Claims, then, upon payment to Lender in full and performance of the Guaranteed Obligations and the repayment of the Loan, Guarantor shall become subrogated to the rights of Lender to the extent of such payments to Lender on the Guarantor Claims, and such subrogation shall be with respect to that proportion of the Guaranteed Obligations which would have been unpaid if Lender had not received dividends or payments upon the Guarantor Claims.

5.3.          Payments Held in Trust.  In the event that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Guaranty, Guarantor should receive any funds, payment, claim or distribution which is prohibited by this Guaranty, Guarantor agrees to hold in trust for Lender an amount

12




equal to the amount of all funds, payments, claims or distributions so received, and agrees that it shall have absolutely no dominion over the amount of such funds, payments, claims or distributions so received except to pay them promptly to Lender, and Guarantor covenants promptly to pay the same to Lender for application to the Debt.

5.4.          Liens Subordinate.  Guarantor agrees that any liens, security interests, judgment liens, charges or other encumbrances upon Borrower’s assets securing payment of the Guarantor Claims shall be and remain inferior and subordinate to any liens, security interests, judgment liens, charges or other encumbrances upon Borrower’s assets securing payment of the Debt, regardless of whether such encumbrances in favor of Guarantor or Lender presently exist or are hereafter created or attach.  Without the prior written consent of Lender, Guarantor shall not (i) exercise or enforce any creditor’s right it may have against Borrower, or (ii) foreclose, repossess, sequester or otherwise take steps or institute any action or proceedings (judicial or otherwise, including without limitation the commencement of, or joinder in, any liquidation, bankruptcy, rearrangement, debtor’s relief or insolvency proceeding) to enforce any liens, mortgages, deeds of trust, security interests, collateral rights, judgments or other encumbrances on assets of Borrower held by Guarantor.

ARTICLE VI
MISCELLANEOUS

6.1.          Waiver.  No failure to exercise, and no delay in exercising, on the part of Lender, any right hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right.  The rights of Lender hereunder shall be in addition to all other rights provided by law.  No modification or waiver of any provision of this Guaranty, nor consent to departure therefrom, shall be effective unless in writing and no such consent or waiver shall extend beyond the particular case and purpose involved.  No notice or demand given in any case shall constitute a waiver of the right to take other action in the same, similar or other instances without such notice or demand.  Pursuant to Nevada Revised Statutes (“NRS”) Section 40.495(2), Guarantor hereby waives the provisions of NRS Section 40.430.

6.2.          Notices.  All notices, consents, approvals and requests required or permitted hereunder shall be given in writing and shall be effective for all purposes if (i) hand delivered, (ii) sent by certified or registered United States mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, (iii) sent by expedited prepaid delivery service, either commercial or United States Postal Service, with proof of attempted delivery, or (iv) sent by facsimile (with answer back acknowledged), in each case addressed as follows (or at such other address and person as shall be designated from time to time by any party hereto, as the case may be, in a notice to the other parties hereto in the manner provided for in this Section 6.2):
