                           INDEMNITY AND GUARANTY AGREEMENT


     THIS INDEMNITY AND GUARANTY AGREEMENT (this "AGREEMENT"), made as of March,
1997 by HOST FUNDING, INC., a Maryland corporation, ("INDEMNITOR"), having an
address at 6116 N. Central Expressway, Suite 1313, Dallas, Texas 75206 in favor
of CREDIT SUISSE FIRST BOSTON MORTGAGE CAPITAL LLC, a Delaware limited liability
company ("LENDER"), having an address at 11 Madison Avenue, New York, New York

                                 W I T N E S S E T H:

     WHEREAS, Crosshost, Inc., a Maryland corporation ("BORROWER"), has obtained
a loan (the "LOAN") in the original principal amount of THIRTEEN MILLION AND
NO/100 DOLLARS ($13,000,000.00) (the "LOAN AMOUNT") from Lender; and

     WHEREAS, the Loan is evidenced by a promissory note (the "NOTE") dated of
even date herewith, executed by Borrower and payable to the order of Lender, in
the Loan Amount, and is secured by, inter alia, those certain Mortgages,
Security Agreement, Assignment of Rents and Fixture Filing or Deed of Trusts,
Security Agreement, Assignment of Rents and Fixture Filing, as applicable, dated
of even date herewith (the "MORTGAGE") from Borrower, as mortgagor, to Lender,
as mortgagee, encumbering certain real property more particularly described on
EXHIBIT A attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference, together
with the buildings, structures and other improvements now or hereafter (the
"MORTGAGED PROPERTY") and by other documents and instruments (the Note, the
Mortgage and such other documents and instruments, as the same may from time to
time be amended, consolidated, renewed or replaced, being collectively referred
to herein as the "LOAN DOCUMENTS"); and

     WHEREAS, as a condition to making the Loan to Borrower, Lender has required
that Indemnitor indemnify Lender from and against and guarantee payment to
Lender of those items for which Borrower is personally liable and for which
Lender has recourse against Borrower under the terms of the Loan Documents;


     WHEREAS, Indemnitor directly and indirectly owns all of the beneficial
interest in Borrower; and

     WHEREAS, The extension of the Loan to Borrower is of substantial benefit to
Indemnitor and, therefore, Indemnitor desires to indemnify Lender from and
against and guarantee payment to Lender of those items for which Borrower is
personally liable and for which Lender has recourse against Borrower under the
terms of the Note and the Mortgage.

     NOW, THEREFORE, to induce Lender to extend the Loan to Borrower and in
consideration of the foregoing premises and for other good and valuable
consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, and
intending to be legally bound hereby Indemnitor hereby covenants and agrees for
the benefit of Lender, as follows:

     1.   INDEMNITY AND GUARANTY.  (a)  Indemnitor hereby assumes liability for,
hereby guarantees payment to Lender of, hereby agrees to pay, protect, defend
and save Lender harmless from and against, and hereby indemnifies Lender from
and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, costs and
expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees), causes of
action, suits, claims, demands and judgments of any nature or description
whatsoever (collectively, "COSTS") for which Borrower is liable pursuant to
SECTION 18.32 of the Mortgage, a copy of which Indemnitor acknowledges
receiving.

     (b)  In the event Borrower files, consents to or acquiesces in the filing
of any proceeding, action or petition or filing under the Bankruptcy Code, or
any similar state or federal law now or hereinafter in effect relating to
bankruptcy, reorganization or insolvency, or the arrangement or adjustment of
debts or if Borrower shall institute any proceeding for its dissolution or
liquidation or shall make an assignment for the benefit of creditors, then
Indemnitor shall be personally liable for all sums due and owing under the Loan,
including without limitation, all principal and interest due under the Note.

     (c) With respect to the amounts set forth in subsection (a) and (b) of this
Paragraph 1, this is a guaranty of payment and performance and not of
collection.  The liability of Indemnitor under this Agreement shall be direct
and immediate and not conditional or contingent upon the pursuit of any remedies
against Borrower or any other Person, nor against the collateral

                                      2


for the Loan. Indemnitor waives any right to require that an action be
brought against Borrower or any other Person or to require that resort
be made to any collateral for the Loan or to any balance of any
Sub-Account or any account or credit on the books of Lender in favor of
Borrower or any other Person.  During the continuance of any Event of
Default, any Lender shall have the right to enforce its rights, powers
and remedies (including, without limitation, foreclosure of all or any
portion of the Mortgaged Property) thereunder or hereunder, in any
order, and all rights, powers and remedies available to Lender in such
event shall be non-exclusive and cumulative of all other rights, powers
and remedies provided thereunder or hereunder or by law or in equity.
If the indebtedness and obligations guaranteed hereby are partially paid
or discharged by reason of the exercise of any of the remedies available
to Lender, this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and
effect, and Indemnitor shall remain liable for all remaining
indebtedness and obligations guaranteed hereby, even though any rights
which Indemnitor may have against Borrower may be destroyed or
diminished by the exercise of any such remedy.

     2.   INDEMNIFICATION PROCEDURES.

          (a)  If any action shall be brought against Lender based upon any of
the matters for which Lender is indemnified hereunder, Lender shall notify
Indemnitor in writing thereof and Indemnitor shall promptly assume the defense
thereof, including, without limitation, the employment of counsel reasonably
acceptable to Lender and the negotiation of any settlement; PROVIDED, HOWEVER,
that any failure of Lender to notify Indemnitor of such matter shall not impair
or reduce the obligations of Indemnitor hereunder.  Lender shall have the right,
at the sole cost and expense of Indemnitor (which costs and expense shall be
included in Costs), to employ separate counsel in any such action and to
participate in the defense thereof.  In the event Indemnitor shall fail to
discharge or undertake to defend Lender against any claim, loss or liability for
which Lender is indemnified hereunder, Lender may defend or settle such claim,
loss or liability.  The liability of Indemnitor to Lender hereunder shall be
conclusively established by such settlement, provided such settlement is
negotiated and made in good faith, the amount of such liability to include both
the settlement consideration and reasonable costs and expenses, including,
without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements, actually
incurred by Lender in effecting such

                                    3


settlement.  In such event, such settlement consideration, reasonable
costs and expenses shall be included in Costs and Indemnitor shall pay
the same as hereinafter provided.  Lender's good faith in any such
settlement shall be conclusively established if the settlement is made
on the advice of independent legal counsel for Lender.

          (b)  Indemnitor shall not, without the prior written consent of
Lender: (i) settle or compromise any action, suit, proceeding or claim or
consent to the entry of any judgment that does not include as an unconditional
term thereof the delivery by the claimant or plaintiff to Lender of a full and
complete written release of Lender (in form, scope and substance satisfactory to
Lender in its sole discretion) from all liability in respect of such action,
suit, proceeding or claim and a dismissal with prejudice of such action, suit,
proceeding or claim; or (ii) settle or compromise any action, suit, proceeding
or claim in any manner that may materially and adversely affect Lender or
obligate Lender to pay any sum or perform any obligation as determined by Lender
in its sole discretion.

          (c)  All Costs shall be reimbursable to Lender when and as incurred
and, in the event of any litigation, claim or other proceeding, without any
requirement of waiting for the ultimate outcome of such litigation, claim or
other proceeding, and Indemnitor shall pay to Lender any and all Costs within
ten (10) days after written notice from Lender itemizing the amounts thereof
incurred to the date of such notice.  In addition to any other remedy available
for the failure of Indemnitor to periodically pay such Costs, such Costs, if not
paid within said ten-day period, shall bear interest at the  Default Rate from
the date of notice through the date such sum is paid in full.

     3.   REINSTATEMENT OF OBLIGATIONS.  If at any time all or any part of any
payment made by Indemnitor or received by Lender from Indemnitor under or with
respect to this Agreement is or must be rescinded or returned for any reason
whatsoever (including, but not limited to, the insolvency, bankruptcy or
reorganization of Indemnitor or Borrower or Ground Lessor), then the obligations
of Indemnitor hereunder shall, to the extent of the payment rescinded or
returned, be deemed to have continued in existence, notwithstanding such
previous payment made by Indemnitor, or receipt of payment by Lender, and the
obligations of Indemnitor hereunder shall continue to be effective or be

                                    4


reinstated, as the case may be, as to such payment, all as though such previous
payment by Indemnitor had never been made.

     4.   WAIVERS BY INDEMNITOR.  To the extent permitted by law, Indemnitor
hereby waives and agrees not to assert or take advantage of:

          (a)  any right to require Lender to proceed against Borrower or any
other Person or to proceed against or exhaust any security held by Lender at any
time or to pursue any other remedy in Lender's power or under any other
agreement before proceeding against Indemnitor hereunder;

          (b)  any defense that may arise by reason of the incapacity, lack of
authority, death or disability of any other Person or the failure of Lender to
file or enforce a claim against the estate (in administration, bankruptcy or any
other proceeding) of any other Person;

          (c)  demand, presentment for payment, notice of nonpayment, protest,
notice of protest and all other notices of any kind, or the lack of any thereof,
including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, notice of the
existence, creation or incurring of any new or additional indebtedness or
obligation or of any action or non-action on the part of Borrower, Lender, any
endorser or creditor of Borrower or of Indemnitor or on the part of any other
Person whomsoever under this or any other instrument in connection with any
obligation or evidence of indebtedness held by Lender;

          (d)  any defense based upon an election of remedies by Lender;

          (e)  any right or claim or right to cause a marshalling of the assets
of Indemnitor;

          (f)  any principle or provision of law, statutory or otherwise, which
is or might be in conflict with the terms and provisions of this Agreement;

          (g)  any duty on the part of Lender to disclose to Indemnitor any
facts Lender may now or hereafter know about Borrower or the Mortgaged Property,
regardless of whether Lender has reason to believe that any such facts
materially increase the risk beyond that which Indemnitor intends to assume or
has reason

                                    5



to believe that such facts are unknown to Indemnitor or has a reasonable
opportunity to communicate such facts to Indemnitor, it being understood
and agreed that Indemnitor is fully responsible for being and keeping
informed of the financial condition of Borrower, of the condition of the
Mortgaged Property and of any and all circumstances bearing on the risk
that liability may be incurred by Indemnitor hereunder;

          (h)  any lack of notice of disposition or of manner of disposition of
any collateral for the Loan;

          (i)  any invalidity, irregularity or unenforceability, in whole or in
part, of any one or more of the Loan Documents;

          (j)  any lack of commercial reasonableness in dealing with the
collateral for the Loan;

          (k)  any deficiencies in the collateral for the Loan or any deficiency
in the ability of Lender to collect or to obtain performance from any Persons
now or hereafter liable for the payment and performance of any obligation hereby
guaranteed;

          (l)  an assertion or claim that the automatic stay provided by the
Bankruptcy Code (arising upon the voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy proceeding
of Borrower) or any other stay provided under any other debtor relief law
(whether statutory, common law, case law or otherwise) of any jurisdiction
whatsoever, now or hereafter in effect, which may be or become applicable, shall
operate or be interpreted to stay, interdict, condition, reduce or inhibit the
ability of Lender to enforce any of its rights, whether now or hereafter
required, which Lender may have against Indemnitor or the collateral for the
Loan;

          (m)  any modifications of the Loan Documents or any obligation of
Borrower relating to the Loan by operation of law or by action of any court,
whether pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code, or any other debtor relief law (whether
statutory, common law, case law or otherwise) of any jurisdiction whatsoever,
now or hereafter in effect, or otherwise; and

          (n)  any action, occurrence, event or matter consented to by
Indemnitor under SECTION 5(h) hereof, under any other provision hereof, or
otherwise.

                                     6


     5.   GENERAL PROVISIONS.

          (a)  FULLY RECOURSE.  All of the terms and provisions of this
Agreement are recourse obligations of Indemnitor and not restricted by any
limitation on personal liability.

          (b)  UNSECURED OBLIGATIONS.  Indemnitor hereby acknowledges that
Lender's appraisal of the Mortgaged Property is such that Lender is not
willing to accept the consequences of the inclusion of Indemnitor's indemnity
set forth herein among the obligations secured by the Mortgage and the other
Loan Documents and that Lender would not make the Loan but for the unsecured
personal liability undertaken by Indemnitor herein.

          (c)  SURVIVAL.  This Agreement shall be deemed to be continuing in
nature and shall remain in full force and effect and shall survive the
exercise of any remedy by Lender under the Mortgage or any of the other Loan
Documents, including, without limitation, any foreclosure or delivery of a
deed in lieu thereof, even if, as a part of such remedy, the Loan is paid or
satisfied in full.

          (d)  NO SUBROGATION; NO RECOURSE AGAINST LENDER.  Notwithstanding
the satisfaction by Indemnitor of any liability hereunder, Indemnitor shall
not have any right of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement or indemnity
whatsoever or any right of recourse to or with respect to the assets or
property of Borrower or to any collateral for the Loan.  In connection with
the foregoing, Indemnitor expressly waives any and all rights of subrogation
to Lender against Borrower, and Indemnitor hereby waives any rights to
enforce any remedy which Lender may have against Borrower and any right to
participate in any collateral for the Loan.  In addition to and without in
any way limiting the foregoing, Indemnitor hereby subordinates any and all
indebtedness of Borrower now or hereafter owed to Indemnitor to all
indebtedness of Borrower to Lender, and agrees with Lender that Indemnitor
shall not demand or accept any payment of principal or interest from
Borrower, shall not claim any offset or other reduction of Indemnitor's
obligations hereunder because of any such indebtedness and shall not take any
action to obtain any of the collateral from the Loan.  Further, Indemnitor
shall not have any right of recourse against Lender by reason of any action
Lender may take or omit to take under the provisions of this Agreement or
under the provisions of any of the Loan Documents.



                                      7


          (e)  RESERVATION OF RIGHTS.  Nothing contained in this Agreement
shall prevent or in any way diminish or interfere with any rights or
remedies, including, without limitation, the right to contribution, which
Lender may have against Borrower, Indemnitor or any other party under CERCLA,
as it may be amended from time to time, or any other applicable federal,
state or local laws, all such rights being hereby expressly reserved.

          (f)  FINANCIAL STATEMENTS.  Indemnitor hereby agrees, as a material
inducement to Lender to make the Loan to Borrower, to keep and maintain on a
Fiscal Year basis, in accordance with GAAP or the Uniform System of Accounts
for Hotels, 8th Edition, International Association of Hospitality Accountants
(1986), as from time to time amended (or such other accounting basis
reasonably acceptable to Lender) consistently applied proper and accurate
books, records and accounts reflecting all of the financial affairs of
Indemnitor.  Lender shall have the right from time to time at all times
during normal business hours upon reasonable notice to examine such books,
records and accounts at the office of Indemnitor or other Person maintaining
such books, records and accounts and to make such copies or extracts thereof
as Lender shall desire.  After the occurrence of an Event of Default,
Indemnitor shall pay any costs and expenses incurred by Lender to examine
Indemnitor's accounting records, as Lender shall determine to be necessary or
appropriate in the protection of Lender's interest. Indemnitor hereby
warrants and represents unto Lender that any and all balance sheets, net
worth statements and other financial data which have heretofore been given or
may hereafter be given to Lender with respect to Indemnitor did or will at
the time of such delivery fairly and accurately present the financial
condition of Indemnitor.

          (g)  RIGHTS CUMULATIVE; PAYMENTS.  Lender's rights under this
Agreement shall be in addition to all rights of Lender under the Note, the
Mortgage and the other Loan Documents.  FURTHER, PAYMENTS MADE BY INDEMNITOR
UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT REDUCE IN ANY RESPECT BORROWER'S OBLIGATIONS
AND LIABILITIES UNDER THE NOTE, THE MORTGAGE AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS.

          (h)  NO LIMITATION ON LIABILITY.  Indemnitor hereby consents and
agrees that Lender may at any time and from time to time without further
consent from Indemnitor do any of the following events, and the liability of
Indemnitor under this Agreement shall be unconditional and absolute and shall
in no way be impaired or limited by any of the following events, whether



                                      8


occurring with or without notice to Indemnitor or with or without
consideration: (i) any extensions of time for performance required by any of
the Loan Documents or extension or renewal of the Note; (ii) any sale,
assignment or foreclosure of the Note, the Mortgage or any of the other Loan
Documents or any sale or transfer of the Mortgaged Property; (iii) any change
in the composition of Borrower, including, without limitation, the withdrawal
or removal of Indemnitor from any current or future position of ownership,
management or control of Borrower; (iv) the accuracy or inaccuracy of the
representations and warranties made by Indemnitor herein or by Borrower in
any of the Loan Documents; (v) the release of Borrower or of any other Person
from performance or observance of any of the agreements, covenants, terms or
conditions contained in any of the Loan Documents by operation of law,
Lender's voluntary act or otherwise; (vi) the release or substitution in
whole or in part of any security for the Loan; (vii) Lender's failure to
record the Mortgage or to file any financing statement (or Lender's improper
recording or filing thereof) or to otherwise perfect, protect, secure or
insure any lien or security interest given as security for the Loan; (viii)
the modification of the terms of any one or more of the Loan Documents; or
(ix) the taking or failure to take any action of any type whatsoever.  No
such action which Lender shall take or fail to take in connection with the
Loan Documents or any collateral for the Loan, nor any course of dealing with
Borrower or any other Person, shall limit, impair or release Indemnitor's
obligations hereunder, affect this Agreement in any way or afford Indemnitor
any recourse against Lender.  Nothing contained in this Section shall be
construed to require Lender to take or refrain from taking any action
referred to herein.

          (i)  ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement contains the entire agreement
between the parties respecting the matters herein set forth and supersedes
all prior agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties respecting
such matters.

          (j)  NO ORAL CHANGE.  The terms of this Agreement constitute the
entire understanding and agreement of the parties hereto and supersede all
prior agreements, understandings and negotiations between Indemnitor and
Lender with respect to the Loan.  This Agreement, and any provisions hereof,
may not be modified, amended, waived, extended, changed, discharged or
terminated orally or by any act on the part of Indemnitor or Lender, but only
by an agreement in writing signed by the party



                                      9


against whom enforcement of any modification, amendment, waiver, extension,
change, discharge or termination is sought.

          (k)  RIGHT OF ENTRY.  Lender and its agents shall have the right
upon reasonable notice to inspect Indemnitor's books and records and to make
abstracts and reproductions thereof.

          (l)  SEVERABLE PROVISIONS.  If any term, covenant or condition of
this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any
respect, this Agreement shall be construed without such provision.

          (m)  DUPLICATE ORIGINALS.  This Agreement may be executed in any
number of duplicate originals and each such duplicate original shall be
deemed to constitute but one and the same instrument.

          (n)  WAIVER OF COUNTERCLAIM, ETC.  INDEMNITOR HEREBY WAIVES THE
RIGHT TO ASSERT A COUNTERCLAIM, OTHER THAN A COMPULSORY COUNTERCLAIM, IN ANY
ACTION OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT AGAINST IT BY LENDER OR ITS AGENTS, AND WAIVES
TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT BY EITHER PARTY HERETO
AGAINST THE OTHER OR IN ANY COUNTERCLAIM INDEMNITOR MAY BE PERMITTED TO
ASSERT HEREUNDER OR WHICH MAY BE ASSERTED BY LENDER OR ITS AGENTS, AGAINST
INDEMNITOR, OR IN ANY MATTERS WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY
CONNECTED WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE DEBT.

          (o)  HEADINGS; CONSTRUCTION OF DOCUMENTS; ETC.  The headings and
captions of various paragraphs of this Agreement are for convenience of
reference only and are not to be construed as defining or limiting, in any
way, the scope or intent of the provisions hereof.  Indemnitor acknowledges
that it was represented by competent counsel in connection with the
negotiation and drafting of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and
that neither this Agreement nor the other Loan Documents shall be subject to
the principle of construing the meaning against the Person who drafted same.

          (p)  WAIVER OF NOTICE.  Indemnitor shall not be entitled to any
notices of any nature whatsoever from Lender except with respect to matters
for which this Agreement specifically and expressly provides for the giving
of notice by Lender to Indemnitor and except with respect to matters for
which



                                      10


Indemnitor is not, pursuant to applicable Legal Requirements, permitted to
waive the giving of notice.

          (q)  APPLICABLE LAW.  THIS AGREEMENT WAS NEGOTIATED IN NEW YORK,
AND MADE BY INDEMNITOR AND ACCEPTED BY LENDER IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK, AND
THE PROCEEDS OF THE NOTE WERE DISBURSED FROM NEW YORK, WHICH STATE THE

UNDERLYING TRANSACTION EMBODIED HEREBY, AND IN ALL RESPECTS, INCLUDING,
WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, MATTERS OF CONSTRUCTION,
VALIDITY AND PERFORMANCE.  THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OBLIGATIONS ARISING
HEREUNDER SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF
THE STATE OF NEW YORK APPLICABLE TO CONTRACTS MADE AND PERFORMED IN SUCH
STATE AND ANY APPLICABLE LAW OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

          (r)  WAIVER OF STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS.  The pleadings of any

Requirements.

          (s)  NOTICE.  Any notice, demand, statement, request or consent
made hereunder shall be in writing and delivered personally or sent to the

                                      11


however, that notwithstanding any provision of this Article to the contrary,
such notice of change of address shall be deemed given only upon actual
receipt thereof.

Rejection or other refusal to accept or the inability to deliver because of
changed address of which no notice was given as herein required shall be
deemed to be receipt of the notice, demand or request sent.

          (t)  NO WAIVER; TIME OF ESSENCE.    The failure of any party hereto
to enforce any right or remedy hereunder, or to promptly enforce any such
right or remedy, shall not constitute a waiver thereof nor give rise to any
estoppel against such party nor excuse any of the parties hereto from their
respective obligations hereunder.  Any waiver of such right or remedy must be
in writing and signed by the party to be bound.  This Agreement is subject to
enforcement at law or in equity, including actions for damages or specific
performance. Time is of the essence hereof.

shall arise each time Lender acquires knowledge of any matter indemnified or
guaranteed by Indemnitor under this Agreement.  Separate and successive
actions may be brought hereunder to enforce any of the provisions hereof at
any time and from time to time.  No action hereunder shall preclude any
subsequent action, and Indemnitor hereby waives and covenants not to assert
any defense in the nature of splitting of causes of action or merger of
judgments.

          (w)  RELIANCE.  Lender would not make the Loan to Borrower without
this Agreement.  Accordingly, Indemnitor intentionally and unconditionally
enters into the covenants and agreements as set forth above and understands
that, in reliance upon and in consideration of such covenants and agreements,
the Loan shall be



                                      12

and Indemnitor waives any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the
laying of venue of any such suit, action or proceeding, and Indemnitor hereby
irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction of any such court in any suit, action
or proceeding. Indemnitor does hereby designate and appoint _______ ________,

of its authorized agent hereunder, (ii) may at any time and from time to time

ceases to have an office in New York, New York or is dissolved without
leaving a successor.

          (y)  WAIVER BY INDEMNITOR.  Indemnitor covenants and agrees that,
upon the commencement of a voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy proceeding by
or against Borrower, Indemnitor shall not seek or cause Borrower or any other
Person to seek a supplemental stay or other relief, whether injunctive or
otherwise, pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section 105 or any other provision of the
