          2.2.2 Balance of Purchase Price.  Not later than 11:00 a.m. California
time on the Closing Date, Purchaser shall deposit with Escrow Holder, in Good
Funds, the balance of the Purchase Price, reduced or increased by such amounts
required to take into account such prorations, credits, costs or other
adjustments which are required by this Agreement and which can be computed and
determined as of the time for the required deposit hereunder.

     2.3 Assumption of the Contracts and the Tenant Leases.  As additional
consideration, Purchaser shall, on and as of the Close of Escrow, at its sole
cost and expense, assume and agree to pay all sums and perform, fulfill and
comply with all other covenants and obligations which are to be paid, performed
and complied with by Seller under the Contracts and the Tenant Leases which
first arise on and after the Close of Escrow. Seller shall indemnify and hold
Purchaser and its owners and affiliates harmless from all breaches, claims,
liabilities, losses and damages arising under the Contracts and the Tenant
Leases for all periods prior to the Close of Escrow. Purchaser shall indemnify
and hold Seller and its owners and affiliates, harmless from all breaches,
claims, liabilities, losses and damages arising under the Contracts and the
Tenant Leases (including, without limitation, those arising from or as a result
of the assignment and assumption thereof) for all periods on and after the Close
of Escrow. The provisions of this Section 2.3 shall survive the Close of Escrow.

     2.4 Assumption of the Management Agreement.  Purchaser shall assume the
Management Agreement (without fee, liability or penalty to Seller), at
Purchaser's sole cost and expense, without any property improvement obligations
imposed by Hyatt Corporation as a condition thereof, and in each case with the
full release of Seller from liability thereunder for all periods after the
Closing Date. Seller agrees to cooperate with Purchaser's efforts to apply for
and obtain the assignment and assumption of the Management Agreement all at no
cost or expense to Seller. Purchaser shall use commercially diligent reasonable
efforts to submit to Hyatt Corporation its application for the assignment and
assumption of the Management Agreement as soon as practicable following
execution of this Agreement (subject to any statutory UFOC waiting periods), and
shall diligently pursue the processing thereof.

                                     ESCROW

     3.1 Opening of Escrow.  The parties shall open an escrow (the "Escrow")
with Escrow Holder by depositing with Escrow Holder the Earnest Money Deposit
and three (3) copies of this Agreement duly executed (in counterparts or
otherwise) by Seller and Purchaser. The time when Escrow Holder receives the
Earnest Money Deposit and executes the copies of this Agreement shall be deemed
the "Opening of Escrow." Purchaser and Seller shall execute and deliver to
Escrow Holder, in a timely fashion, such instruments and funds as are reasonably
necessary to close the Escrow and consummate the sale and purchase of the
Property (or the exchange thereof, if applicable) in accordance with the terms
and provisions of this Agreement.

     3.2 Escrow Holder's General Provisions.  Escrow Holder's standard escrow
"General Provisions" are attached hereto as Exhibit "F." In the event of any
conflict between the provisions of the typed portion of this Agreement and the
General Provisions, the provisions of the typed portion of this Agreement shall
be controlling and the General Provisions will be deemed amended accordingly.

     3.3 Additional Escrow Holder Requirements.  If there are any requirements
imposed by Escrow Holder relating to the duties or obligations of Escrow Holder,
or if Escrow Holder requires any other additional instructions, the parties
agree to make such deletions, substitutions and additions to this Agreement
which do not cause more than a ministerial or de minimis change to this
Agreement or its intent. Any such changes requested by Escrow Holder shall be
subject to written approval of the parties, which approval shall not be
unreasonably withheld or conditioned.

     3.4 Deposit of Funds.  Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, all
funds deposited into the Escrow by Purchaser shall be immediately deposited by
Escrow Holder into Treasury Bills or other short-term United States Government
obligations, in repurchase contracts for the same, or in a federally insured
money market account, subject to the control of Escrow Holder in a bank or
savings and loan association, or such other institution approved by Purchaser;
provided, however, that such funds must be readily available as necessary to
comply with the terms of this Agreement and Escrow Holder's escrow instructions,
and for the Escrow to close within the time specified in Section 5.1 of this
Agreement. Except as may be otherwise specifically provided herein, interest on
amounts placed by Escrow Holder in any such investments or interest bearing
accounts shall accrue to the benefit of Purchaser, and Purchaser shall promptly
provide to Escrow Holder Purchaser's Tax Identification Number.

     3.5 Release of Funds by Escrow Holder.  Escrow Holder's obligation under
this Agreement to release the Earnest Money Deposit, and any other funds, prior
to the Close of Escrow is subject to such funds having cleared through the bank,
savings and loan, or other financial institution on which such funds are drawn.
Escrow Holder shall make such payments


                                        8
<PAGE>
only in strict accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, and Purchaser
and Seller agree to save and hold Escrow Holder harmless in disbursing and
releasing the funds as specified in this Agreement. Purchaser and Seller
represent to Escrow Holder that the release instructions set forth in this
Agreement are made of their own free will, under no duress, and with full
understanding of the consequences thereof, not relying on any information
furnished or statements made by Escrow Holder.

                                      IV.

                               CONDITION OF TITLE

     4.1 Title Commitment.  Within ten (10) days after the Opening of Escrow,
Escrow Holder, at Seller's sole cost and expense, shall cause to be furnished to
Purchaser a current commitment for a A.L.T.A. Owner's Policy of Title Insurance
(standard coverage) issued by Title Insurer (the "Title Commitment") reflecting
the status of title to the Real Property and all exceptions, including
easements, licenses, restrictions, rights-of-way, leases, covenants,
reservations and other conditions, if any, affecting the Real Property, which
would appear in a A.L.T.A. Owner's Policy of Title Insurance (standard coverage)
if used, and committing to issue the A.L.T.A. Owner's Policy of Title Insurance
(standard coverage) to Purchaser in the full amount of the Purchase Price.
Accompanying the Title Commitment, Escrow Holder shall cause to be furnished to
Purchaser, to the extent available, legible copies of the documents affecting
the Real Property referred to in the Title Commitment.

     4.2 Title Insurance Policy.  Effective as of the Close of Escrow, but
conditioned upon the Close of Escrow, Title Insurer shall issue to Purchaser
Title Insurer's A.L.T.A. Owner's Policy of Title Insurance (standard coverage)
(the "Title Policy"), with liability in the amount of the Purchase Price for the
Real Property insuring fee title in the Real Property as vested in Purchaser
subject only to the following matters affecting title ("Permitted Exceptions").

               (a) All general and special property taxes and assessments not
yet delinquent, and all improvement and assessment bonds;

               (b) Supplemental taxes assessed as a result of the sale of the
Real Property by Seller to Purchaser;

               (c) All liens, covenants, conditions, restrictions, easements,
rights of way, and all other exceptions to title as referenced in the Title
Commitment, except monetary liens and encumbrances (other than caused by
Purchaser) which Seller shall remove at or prior to the Close of Escrow;

               (d) All exceptions to title disclosed by or in, or arising from
or in connection with, the Survey (and any updates thereto) of the Real Property
for the Title Policy (including, without limitation, easements, encroachments
and zoning);


                                        9
<PAGE>
               (e) The Tenant Leases, and the rights of the tenants thereunder;

               (f) All security interests recorded in connection with the
Contracts;

               (g) Rights of parties in possession not shown by the public
records, easements or claims of easements not shown by the public records, but
with respect to which Purchaser has knowledge thereof;

               (h) Governmental laws, codes, ordinances and restrictions now or
hereafter in effect so far as these affect the Property or any part thereof,
including, without limitation, zoning ordinances (and amendments and additions
relating thereto) and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended,
and any and all other matters, known or unknown, relating to the Property, or
its condition, use, value or operation;

               (i) Any exceptions created by Purchaser or its agents, employees
and/or contractors, including without limitation, any exceptions arising by
reason of the entry on the Real Property by Purchaser or by its agents,
employees and/or contractors; and

               (j) All preprinted exceptions and exclusions contained in the
Title Policy, except those customarily deleted by an owner's affidavit.

          At Purchaser's election, the Title Policy shall be an A.L.T.A. Owner's
Policy of Title Insurance (extended coverage); provided, however, that
Purchaser's ability to obtain an A.L.T.A. Owner's Policy of Title Insurance
(extended coverage) shall not be a condition precedent to Purchaser's
obligations hereunder and shall not extend the Closing Date or delay the Close
of Escrow. In addition, Purchaser shall have the right to obtain from Title
Insurer such endorsements to the Title Policy and/or such additional liability
protection as Purchaser may elect to obtain; provided, however, that Purchaser's
ability to obtain such title endorsements and/or such additional liability
protection shall not be a condition precedent to Purchaser's obligations
hereunder and shall not extend or delay the Close of Escrow. Purchaser shall be
solely responsible for negotiating with Title Insurer with respect to such
A.L.T.A. Owner's Policy of Title Insurance (extended coverage) and/or with
respect to such title endorsements and/or such additional liability protection
as may be requested by Purchaser, if any.

          Seller will deliver to Purchaser a copy of any survey of the Real
Property in its possession, without warranty, and Purchaser shall be solely
responsible for, and shall assume the risk of, obtaining a survey (or updating
Seller's survey) of the Real Property (the "Survey") acceptable to Title Insurer
for purposes of issuing the Title Policy. Seller will also deliver to Title
Insurer an Owner's Affidavit in customary form in connection with the issuance
of the Title Policy.

     4.3 Inspection.  Purchaser shall have the right, in its sole discretion,
until 5:00 p.m. California time on August 27, 2004, or such earlier date as
Purchaser shall elect in writing, to


                                       10
<PAGE>
satisfy itself, in its sole discretion, as to the condition and extent of the
Property (the "Inspection Period"). Subject to the prior termination of this
Agreement, during the Inspection Period Seller shall cooperate and provide
Purchaser with reasonable and continuing access to the Real Property upon one
(1) business day prior Notice to Seller for the purpose of Purchaser's
inspection and due diligence review. In connection with such review, during
normal business hours during the Inspection Period, Purchaser and its agents
shall be afforded the opportunity to review reasonably available records,
including non-proprietary financial reports (including the audited financial
statements, general ledgers and such other financial information for the Hotel
as reasonably requested by Purchaser and which is in Seller's possession (and
which is not Proprietary Information) for the Hotel), the Tenant Leases, and the
Contracts pertaining to the Hotel which are in or under Seller's control and
relate to the operation of the Hotel, upon reasonable Notice, except that Seller
shall have no obligation to deliver or make available to Purchaser, and
Purchaser shall have no right to review, the Excluded Documents and the
Proprietary Information. Neither Purchaser nor any of its employees, agents or
representatives shall contact or otherwise discuss this transaction and /or the
operation of the Hotel with any on-site employees of the Hotel.

          Purchaser acknowledges that prior to the date of this Agreement,
Seller has delivered to Purchaser, or Seller will so provide Purchaser within
three (3) business days after execution of this Agreement, the information,
documents, agreements and reports relating to the operation of the Property by
Seller, as identified on Schedule "G" attached hereto (collectively the "Due
Diligence Materials"). Purchaser shall have until the expiration of the
Inspection Period to review and approve the Due Diligence Materials.

          During the Inspection Period, Seller shall use commercially reasonable
efforts to obtain from Hyatt Corporation, for the benefit of Purchaser, an
estoppel certificate confirming that (a) to the best of the knowledge of Hyatt
Corporation, there are no defaults under the Management Agreement, and (b) that
the cost of the Renovation will not exceed Six Million Dollars ($6,000,000) (or
if it does so exceed Six Million Dollars ($6,000,000), Purchaser will not be
liable to pay for any portion of such excess). If Seller is unable to so obtain
the estoppel certificate prior to the expiration of the Inspection Period,
provided that Purchaser waives its right to terminate this Agreement under
Section 4.4 hereof, then Seller will extend the Inspection Period for an
additional ten (10) days solely for the purpose of obtaining the estoppel
certificate and if Seller does not so obtain it, Purchaser may then terminate
this Agreement prior to the expiration of such ten (10) day period.

          During the Inspection Period, Purchaser shall also have the
opportunity to conduct a Phase I environmental audit/study of the Real Property,
property condition report, zoning report and such other studies desired by
Purchaser (subject to any consent rights of Seller as set forth herein). Any
environmental audit/study proposed to be undertaken by Purchaser that involves
subsurface testing or is otherwise invasive shall be subject to Seller's written
approval prior to the commencement thereof not to be unreasonably withheld or
conditioned. As a


                                       11
<PAGE>
condition to any such consent, Purchaser shall obtain and maintain such public
liability insurance in an amount of Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000) affecting
the Real Property, naming Seller as an additional insured.

          Purchaser, at all times, will conduct such due diligence in compliance
with all applicable laws and the terms of any Tenant Leases, and in a manner so
as to not cause damage, loss, cost or expense to Seller, the Property or the
tenants or guests of the Property, and without unreasonably interfering with or
disturbing any employee, tenant or guest at the Property. Purchaser shall not
reveal to any governmental agency or any other third party (other than
Purchaser's employees, agents, attorneys, lenders and advisors) not approved by
Seller the results of or any other information acquired pursuant to its
inspections unless required by applicable law. Purchaser will promptly restore
any damage to the Property caused by Purchaser's inspection to its condition
immediately preceding such inspections and examinations and will keep the
Property free and clear of any mechanic's liens or materialmen's liens in
connection with such inspections and examinations.

          The cost of the inspections and tests undertaken pursuant to this
Section 4.3 shall be borne solely by Purchaser. Purchaser shall indemnify,
protect, defend, and hold Seller, Seller's lenders, Hyatt Corporation, and their
affiliates, owners, agents and employees harmless from and against any
obligation, liability, claim (including any claim for damage to property or
injury to or death of any persons), lien or encumbrance, loss, damage, cost or
expense, including reasonable attorneys' fees, whether or not legal proceedings
are instituted, arising from the acts or omissions of Purchaser or its agents,
employees or contractors occurring in connection with, or as a result of, such
inspections, tests or examinations of the Property.

          Purchaser covenants and agrees that all such information and materials
(including the Due Diligence Materials) disclosed and/or delivered to it by
Seller, or Seller's agents, employees and representatives, are confidential and
proprietary information, and that Purchaser shall hold the same in strict
confidence, and shall not disclose the same to anyone other than its employees
and advisors on a "need-to-know" basis subject to the confidentiality
restrictions set forth herein. Purchaser also agrees that, in the event the
transactions contemplated in this Agreement are not consummated as provided
herein, Purchaser shall return all such information and documentation, and all
copies thereof, to Seller promptly upon Seller's request.

          Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, Seller makes no
representations or warranties as to the truth, accuracy or completeness of the
Due Diligence Materials or any materials, data or other information, if any,
supplied to Purchaser in connection with Purchaser's inspection of the Property
(e.g., that such materials are complete, accurate or the final version thereof,
or that all such materials are in Seller's possession). It is the parties'
express understanding and agreement that any such materials are to be provided
only for Purchaser's convenience in making its own examination and determination
prior to the expiration of the Inspection Period as to whether it wishes to
purchase the Property, and, in doing so, Purchaser shall rely exclusively on its
own independent investigation and evaluation of every aspect of the


                                       12
<PAGE>
Property and not on any materials supplied by Seller. Purchaser expressly
disclaims any intent to rely on any such materials provided to it by Seller in
connection with its inspection and agrees that it shall rely solely on its own
independently developed or verified information.

          The obligations of Purchaser under this Section 4.3 (including its
indemnification obligations) shall survive the Close of Escrow or the
termination of this Agreement.

     4.4 Notice of Non-Satisfaction.  During the Inspection Period, Purchaser
may in its sole and absolute discretion, for any reason or for no reason,
terminate this Agreement and cancel the Escrow, in which case the Earnest Money
Deposit shall be promptly refunded to Purchaser, and Purchaser shall return to
Seller all materials (including the Due Diligence Materials) delivered to it
pursuant to the provisions of Section 4.3 hereof, and neither Seller nor
Purchaser shall have any further obligations under this Agreement (except as
otherwise provided in this Agreement).

          If Purchaser fails to provide Notice of cancellation within the
Inspection Period as provided for hereof, Purchaser shall be deemed to have
approved the state of the Property and the condition of title, and shall be
deemed to have waived its rights to terminate this Agreement and cancel the
Escrow as a result thereof.

     4.5 Condition of the Property.

               (a) PURCHASER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT SELLER IS NOT THE ORIGINAL OWNER
OF THE LAND. PURCHASER FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT, PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION OF THE
INSPECTION PERIOD, PURCHASER WILL HAVE THOROUGHLY INSPECTED AND EXAMINED, AND

REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, PURCHASER HEREBY
RELEASES AND FOREVER DISCHARGES SELLER FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, LOSSES, DAMAGES,
LIABILITIES OR OBLIGATIONS ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO ALL OF THE

<PAGE>
               PURCHASER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT PURCHASER'S FAILURE TO
TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT AND CANCEL THE ESCROW PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION OF THE

               (b) PURCHASER FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT PURCHASER HAS SUBSTANTIAL

WAIVES ANY OBLIGATION ON THE PART OF SELLER, OR ANY OTHER PERSON, TO DISCLOSE
ANY DEFECTS OR OTHER DEFICIENCIES OR LIABILITIES IN OR WITH RESPECT TO THE
PROPERTY.

               (c) EXCEPT AS TO THOSE REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES EXPRESSLY
SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, IT IS EXPRESSLY UNDERSTOOD AND AGREED THAT SELLER
MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR GUARANTIES OF ANY KIND, NATURE OR SORT,
EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE PHYSICAL CONDITION, PAST, PRESENT OR
FUTURE OPERATION AND/OR PERFORMANCE, OR VALUE, OF THE PROPERTY. SUBJECT TO

CONVEYS THE PROPERTY TO PURCHASER "AS IS AND WHERE IS, WITH ALL FAULTS," AND
PURCHASER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT SELLER MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS, GUARANTIES OR

FITNESS FOR ANY PURPOSE. PURCHASER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT PURCHASER SHALL BE SOLELY
RESPONSIBLE AND LIABLE FOR ASCERTAINING THE TRANSFERABILITY OF ALL LICENSES,
PERMITS AND OTHER GOVERNMENTAL CONSENTS FOR THE OWNERSHIP, USE AND OPERATION OF
THE PROPERTY, AND SHALL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBTAINING THE TRANSFERS
THEREOF.

               EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO THE REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF
SELLER EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, PURCHASER FURTHER WAIVES ANY AND
ALL WARRANTIES, GUARANTIES, CONDITIONS OR LIABILITIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
ARISING BY LAW OR


                                       14
<PAGE>
OTHERWISE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY OBLIGATION OF SELLER WITH RESPECT
TO CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES) AND ALL TORT LIABILITY, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION,
LIABILITY ARISING FROM NEGLIGENCE OR STRICT LIABILITY. PURCHASER ALSO
ACKNOWLEDGES THAT SOME DEFECTS MAY BECOME APPARENT ONLY AFTER THE CLOSE OF
ESCROW AND HEREBY RELEASES AND HOLDS SELLER HARMLESS FROM BLAME AND ALL
LIABILITY FOR SUCH "LATENT DEFECTS." PURCHASER HEREBY COVENANTS NOT TO BRING ANY
ACTION AGAINST SELLER BASED ON ANY OF THESE CLAIMS. THIS SECTION SHALL SURVIVE
THE CLOSE OF ESCROW.

               (d) PURCHASER ALSO ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT, ALTHOUGH SELLER
HAS PROVIDED TO PURCHASER CERTAIN REPORTS, STUDIES AND SURVEYS FOR OR REGARDING
THE REAL PROPERTY (THE "REPORTS"), SELLER HAS NOT VERIFIED THE ACCURACY THEREOF
AND MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES REGARDING THE MATTERS SET FORTH
THEREIN, IT BEING THE RESPONSIBILITY OF PURCHASER TO VERIFY THE ACCURACY OF SUCH

EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, PURCHASER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT SELLER HAS

OWN ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT REPORT TO DETERMINE IF THE REAL PROPERTY CONTAINS
ANY HAZARDOUS OR TOXIC WASTE, MATERIALS, DISCHARGE, DUMPING OR CONTAMINATION,

shall be


                                       20

          5.5.9 Other Expenses.  All other expenses and obligations not

Seller and Purchaser are unable to agree upon the amount of the till money,
cash-on-hand, all operating accounts for the Hotel, and house banks, the
provisions of this Section 5.5.10 shall be inapplicable, and title to the till
money, cash-on-hand and house banks shall remain with Seller. The failure of

error upon receipt of proof of such error, provided that such proof is delivered
to the party from whom payment is requested on or before one hundred eighty
(180) days after the Close of Escrow. The acceptance of the closing statement by
either party shall not prevent later readjustment pursuant to this Section
5.5.11. After the Close of Escrow, each party shall have reasonable access to

has the full power and authority to enter into this Agreement and to carry out
the transactions contemplated hereby to be carried out by it.

          7.2.2 Due Authorization.  The performance of this Agreement and the
transactions contemplated hereunder by Seller have been duly authorized by all
necessary action on the part of Seller, and this Agreement is binding on and
enforceable against Seller in accordance with its terms. Seller shall, on or
prior to the Closing Date, furnish Purchaser with certified resolutions
evidencing that Seller has been duly authorized to enter into and perform this
Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereunder. No further consent of any
member, manager, creditor, governmental authority or other party to such
execution, delivery and performance hereunder is required. The person(s) signing
this Agreement, and any document pursuant hereto on behalf of Seller, has full
power and authority to bind Seller.

          7.2.3 Lack of Conflict.  Neither the execution of this Agreement nor
the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby will violate any
restriction, court order, judgment, law, regulation, charter, bylaw, instrument,
or agreement to which Seller or the Property (or any portion thereof) is
subject.

          7.2.4 Non-Foreign Seller.  Seller is not a foreign seller as defined
in the "Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act."

          7.2.5 Solvency/Bankruptcy.  Seller has not (i) made any general
assignment for the benefit of creditors, (ii) filed any voluntary petition in
bankruptcy or suffered the filing of an involuntary petition in bankruptcy by
Seller's creditors, (iii) suffered the appointment of a receiver to take
possession of all, or substantially all of Seller's assets, (iv) suffered the

assets, (v) admitted in writing its inability to pay its debts as they come due,
or (vi) made an offer of settlement, extension or composition to its creditors
generally, and has not considered doing or undertaking, and has no current plans
to do or undertake any of the foregoing. Furthermore, Seller has not and does
not contemplate taking or having taken against it, any such actions.

          7.2.6 Litigation.  Seller has not been served with, and to the
knowledge of Seller there is no pending or threatened, litigation or
condemnation proceedings against the Real Property or the Hotel, except that the
City of Garden Grove has taken, by condemnation/eminent domain proceedings, a
portion of the Real Property (consisting of approximately 1,850 square feet)
immediately abutting Harbor Blvd. for a deceleration/right turn lane.

          7.2.7 Accuracy of Materials.  The copies of the Contracts, the Tenant
Leases, and the Management Agreement delivered by Seller to Purchaser are true
and correct copies thereof, and are, to Seller's knowledge, all of such
Contracts, Tenant Leases, and the Management Agreement. Seller is not, to
Seller's knowledge, in material default under any of the terms and provisions
thereof, nor has it sent or, to Seller's knowledge, received any written


                                       28
<PAGE>
notice of default except as provided to Purchaser. Seller has not sent or
received any written notice of a default or breach of any term or provision of
the Management Agreement.

          7.2.8 Licenses and Permits.  The copies of the licenses and permits
delivered by Seller to Purchaser are true and correct copies of all of licenses
and permits for the Hotel, and to the knowledge of Seller, Seller is in
compliance with all obligations thereunder and has not received any written
notice of noncompliance under any of them which Seller has not otherwise
delivered a copy thereof to Purchaser. All liquor licenses for the operation of
alcoholic beverage operations at the Hotel are owned by, and are in the name of,
Hyatt Corporation.

          7.2.9 Compliance with Laws.  To the knowledge of Seller, Seller has
not received any notice of its material noncompliance with any applicable
governmental laws or regulations.

          7.2.10 Financial Statements.  The financial statements delivered by
Seller to Purchaser for the Hotel fairly present the results of the operations
thereof for the periods referenced therein, and are accurate in all material
respects.

          7.2.11 Title to Real Property.  To Seller's knowledge, Seller is the
sole owner of fee simple absolute title to the Real Property.

          7.2.12 Personal Property and Inventory.  All of the Personal Property
and Inventory being conveyed by Seller hereunder are free and clear of all liens
and encumbrances except for (a) equipment leases that are a part of the
Contracts, and (b) those which will be discharged by Seller as of the Close of
Escrow, and Seller has good and marketable title to and the right to convey the
same in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

          7.2.13 Labor and Employment Matters.  All employees of the Hotel are
employed by Hyatt Corporation pursuant to the Management Agreement. Neither
Seller nor Hyatt Corporation is party to any union or other collective
bargaining agreement with employees employed at the Hotel. Neither Purchaser or
Purchaser's lessee or its management company shall have any liability under any
pension, profit sharing or welfare benefit plan that Seller may have established
with respect to the Hotel or its employees.

          7.2.14 Utilities.  To Seller's knowledge, all utilities required for
the operation of the Property either enter the Property through adjoining
streets or pass through adjoining land in accordance with valid public or
private easements, and all such utilities are installed and operating, and all
installation and connection charges therefore have been paid in full.

          7.2.15 No Commitments.  No commitments have been made to any
governmental authority, utility company, school board, church or other religious
body, or any homeowners' association, group or individual relating to the Real
Property which would impose an obligation


                                       29
<PAGE>
upon Purchaser to make any contribution or dedication of money or land or to
construct, install or maintain any improvements of a public or private nature on
or off the real property.

               Wherever the phrase "to the knowledge of Seller" or any similar
phrase stating or implying a limitation on the basis of knowledge appears in
this Agreement, unless specifically otherwise qualified, such phrase shall mean
the present actual knowledge of Sunil Patel, without any imputation of knowledge
or any duty of inquiry or independent investigation of the relevant matter by
any of such individual(s), and without any personal liability. Wherever the
phrase "in Seller's possession", "in the possession of Seller" or similar phrase
appears in this Agreement, such phrase shall be deemed to mean to the extent the
material or other item referred to by such phrase is located at the Hotel or in
Seller's offices or in its possession. Purchaser shall have the right to submit
the foregoing representations and warranties to Hyatt Corporation for its
review.

               Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary,
should any of the foregoing representations and warranties of Seller become
false or inaccurate prior to the Close of Escrow, and Seller discloses the same
to Purchaser, in writing, prior to the Close of Escrow, then Purchaser's sole
recourse shall be to either (i) terminate this Agreement and cancel the Escrow,
in which case the Earnest Money Deposit shall be returned to Purchaser and
neither Seller nor Purchaser will have any further liability or obligation under
this Agreement (except for those obligations which survive in accordance with
their terms), or (ii) proceed with the closing, without reservation, in which
case Purchaser shall be deemed to have waived all claims against Seller and
Hyatt Corporation with respect to such false or inaccurate representation and
warranty.

                                      VIII.

PURCHASER, PURCHASER AND SELLER AGREE THAT IT WOULD BE IMPRACTICAL AND EXTREMELY
DIFFICULT TO ESTIMATE THE DAMAGES WHICH SELLER MAY SUFFER. THEREFORE, PURCHASER
AND SELLER DO HEREBY AGREE THAT A REASONABLE ESTIMATE OF THE TOTAL DAMAGES THAT
SELLER WOULD SUFFER IN THE EVENT THAT PURCHASER DEFAULTS AND FAILS TO COMPLETE
THE PURCHASE OF THE PROPERTY IS AND SHALL BE, AS SELLER'S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE
REMEDY (WHETHER AT LAW OR IN EQUITY), AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE EARNEST MONEY
DEPOSIT. SAID AMOUNT SHALL BE THE FULL, AGREED AND LIQUIDATED DAMAGES FOR THE
FAILURE OF PURCHASER TO CLOSE AND CONSUMMATE THE TRANSACTIONS HEREIN

HEREIN, AND FOR THE RIGHT OF SELLER TO COLLECT SUCH LIQUIDATED DAMAGES FROM
PURCHASER AND ESCROW HOLDER.

                                  MISCELLANEOUS

     12.1 Governing Law.  This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in
accordance with the laws of the State of California. If any legal action is

quasi-judicial body having jurisdiction thereof, whether or not such litigation
or proceedings proceed to a final judgment or award. For the purposes of this
section, any party receiving an arbitration award or a judgment for damages or

the other party will promptly execute and deliver or cause to be executed and
delivered all such other and further instruments, documents or assurances, and

     12.13 Risk of Loss.

               (a) Risk of Loss.  Until the Closing Date, Seller shall bear the
risk of loss should there be damage to any of the Improvements by fire or other
casualty (collectively "Casualty"). If, prior to the Closing Date, any of the
Improvements shall be damaged by any Casualty, Seller shall promptly deliver to
Purchaser a Notice ("Casualty Notice") of such event. Upon Purchaser's receipt
of a Casualty Notice, Seller and Purchaser shall meet promptly to estimate the
cost to repair and restore the Improvements to good condition and to replace the
damaged Personal Property (the "Casualty Renovation Cost"). If the parties are
unable to agree on the cost of restoration, the matter will be submitted to an
engineer designated by Seller and an engineer designated by Purchaser, each
licensed to practice in the state in which the Land is located, and the
engineers shall resolve the dispute. Each party hereto shall bear the costs and
expenses of its own engineer.

               (b) Material Loss.  If the Casualty Renovation Cost exceeds (i)
fifteen percent (15%) of the Purchase Price in the event the Casualty is insured
against, or (ii) five percent (5%) of the Purchase Price in the event the
Casualty is not insured against, either party hereto may, at its option, elect
to terminate this Agreement by Notice to the other party within five (5) days
after the date that the Casualty Renovation Cost is determined, in which case
the Earnest Money Deposit shall be delivered to Purchaser, and neither party
shall have any further rights or obligations hereunder, except for any
continuing confidentially and indemnity obligations as provided in this
Agreement. If both parties hereto fail to timely make its election to terminate
this Agreement, then the Close of Escrow shall take place as provided herein
without reduction of the Purchase Price, and Seller shall assign the insurance
proceeds to Purchaser in the event the Casualty is insured against or have the
Purchase Price reduced by the Casualty Renovation Cost in the event the Casualty
is not insured against.

               (c) Nonmaterial Loss.  If the Casualty Renovation Cost is (i)
fifteen percent (15%) or less of the Purchase Price in the event the Casualty is
insured against, or (ii) five percent (5%) or less of the Purchase Price in the
event the Casualty is not insured against, then, in any such event, neither
party hereto shall have any right to terminate this Agreement, but the Closing
shall take place as provided herein without reduction of the Purchase Price, and
Seller shall assign the insurance proceeds to Purchaser in the event the
Casualty is insured against or have the Purchase Price reduced by the Casualty
Renovation Cost in the event the Casualty is not insured against.

               (d) Eminent Domain.  If, prior to the Close of Escrow, (i) all or
substantially all (or so much thereof so as to substantially and materially
interfere with the operation of the Hotel) of the Real Property, (ii) any
portion of the parking areas on the Real Property which results in there being
insufficient parking for the operation of the Hotel as established by applicable
governmental codes and regulations, or (iii) any access-way to the Real Property
or any building with guest rooms is taken by condemnation or eminent domain, at
the election of Purchaser this Agreement shall, upon the giving of Notice of
such event or of


                                       37
<PAGE>
the condemning authorities' intention so to take the Real Property, terminate,
and Purchaser shall receive a full and prompt refund of all sums deposited by
them with Escrow Holder and/or Seller. If, prior to the Close of Escrow, less
than all or substantially all of the Real Property shall be taken by
condemnation or eminent domain, then, if any of the foregoing, in Purchaser's
reasonable opinion, materially impairs the value of the Real Property or any
significant interest therein, then Purchaser shall have the option to (A) accept
title to the Real Property subject to such taking, in which event at the Close
of Escrow all of the proceeds of any award or payment made or to be made by
reason of such taking shall be assigned by Seller to Purchaser, and any money
theretofore received by Seller in connection with such taking shall be paid over
to Purchaser, whereupon Purchaser shall pay the Purchase Price without abatement
by reason of such taking, or (B) receive a full and prompt refund of all sums
deposited by Purchaser with Escrow Holder and/or Seller. Seller shall not
settle, agree to, or accept any award or payment in connection with a taking of
less than all of the Real Property without obtaining Purchaser's prior written
consent in each case, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or
delayed.

     12.15 Tax Deferred Exchange.  Seller and Purchaser (the "Cooperating
Party") each agree to fully cooperate with the other and their owners (the
"Exchangor") (including cooperation with any Intermediary (as defined herein)
selected by Exchangor) to structure the acquisition of the Property and/or the
Real Property as an exchange of property held for


                                       38
<PAGE>
productive use in a trade or business or for investment within the meaning of
Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (as amended), and upon
request, Cooperating Party agrees to execute additional escrow instructions,
documents, agreements or instruments to effect the exchange; provided, however,
that Cooperating Party shall incur no additional costs or expenses in this
transaction, or be required to acquire, accept or hold title to any property
(other than the Property), as a result of or in connection with any such
exchange, unless because of Cooperating Party's default hereunder or under any
agreement executed by reason of this Section 12.15.

          In connection therewith, Seller shall have the right to dissolve and
distribute the Property to the owners of Seller as tenants-in-common, who will
then be obligated to convey title thereto to Purchaser consistent with the terms
of this Agreement. In the event of any such dissolution and liquidation of
Seller, Purchaser covenants and agrees to cooperate with Seller and such
owners/assignees in connection therewith, and to execute new purchase and sale
agreements with each such owner/assignee on the same terms hereof (with
appropriate cross-default and conveyance covenants/conditions precedent in favor
of Purchaser) except that the Purchase Price and Earnest Money Deposit would be
adjusted prorata based upon each such owner's/assignee's percentage interest and
title. No such dissolution and assignment would delay the Close of Escrow.

          Exchangor agrees to indemnify, defend or hold Cooperating Party
harmless from and against any and all additional costs, expenses, claims,
demands, liabilities, losses, obligations, damages, recoveries, and deficiencies
(such categories being collectively referred to herein as "Liabilities") in
excess of those Liabilities that Cooperating Party would otherwise have if the
transaction contemplated in this Agreement closes as a sale transaction, and
that Cooperating Party may incur or suffer, as a result of or in connection with
(i) the structuring of the transaction contemplated in this Agreement as an
exchange under Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 and/or (ii) the execution of
any documents in connection with the exchange. Exchangor's foregoing indemnity
shall not indemnify Cooperating Party for any Liabilities arising as a result of
or in connection with any default by Cooperating Party under this Agreement or
any default by Cooperating Party under any of the documents or agreements
entered into by Cooperating Party in connection with the exchange or for any
negligence or willful misconduct on the part of Cooperating Party.
Implementation of the exchange(s) contemplated in this Section 12.15 shall not
be a condition to the Close of Escrow.

          Exchangor, at its election, may substitute for any one or more of
them, one or more persons or entities ("Intermediary") as a party(ies) to the
Escrow and this Agreement, in which event the Intermediary shall assume and
perform the obligations of Exchangor under this Agreement (but without the
release of liability of Exchangor for such performance), and Cooperating Party
agrees to accept the performance by Intermediary and shall tender its
performance to Intermediary.

     12.16 No Public Disclosure.  Purchaser shall make no public disclosure of
the terms of this transaction unless required by applicable law and only after
the release of the Earnest Money Deposit to Seller.

     12.17 Covenants, Representations and Warranties.  Except as otherwise set
forth in this Agreement, all of the covenants, representations and agreements of
Seller and Purchaser set forth in this Agreement shall survive the Close of
Escrow, except that all representatives and warranties shall survive only for a
period of twelve (12) months after the Close of Escrow. By proceeding with the
closing of the sale transaction, Seller and Purchaser shall be deemed to have
waived, and so covenant to waive, any claims of defaults or breaches by the
other party existing on or as of the Close of Escrow whether under this
Agreement and any other document or instrument executed by the other party in
connection with this transaction, of which the waiving party was aware prior to
the Close of Escrow for which the other party shall have no liability.

     12.18 Confidentiality.  Other than as required or permitted by the terms of
this Agreement, neither Purchaser nor its agents or representatives shall
disclose, in any manner whatsoever, (a) the information provided to Purchaser by
Seller or its representatives, or (b) any analyses, compilations, studies or
other documents or records prepared by or on behalf of Purchaser, in connection
with Purchaser's due diligence investigation of the Property, without first
obtaining the written consent of Seller (collectively, "Proprietary
Information"). The foregoing shall not preclude Purchaser (i) from discussing
the Proprietary Information with any person who is employed by Purchaser or who,
on behalf of Purchaser, is actively and directly participating in the purchase
and sale of the Property, including, without limitation, to Purchaser's
shareholders, partners, members, existing or prospective lenders, attorneys,
accountants and other consultants and advisors, or (ii) from complying with all
laws, rules, regulations and court orders, including, without limitation,
governmental regulatory, disclosure, tax and reporting requirements; provided,
however, that if Purchaser is required by applicable law or legal process to
disclose any Proprietary Information, Purchaser agrees to furnish only that
portion of the Proprietary Information which Purchaser is legally compelled to
disclose and to use its best efforts to obtain assurance that, if possible,
confidential treatment will be accorded to the Proprietary Information.
Purchaser shall inform its respective representatives of the confidential nature
of the Proprietary Information and shall direct them to be bound by the terms of
this section. In addition to any other remedies available to Seller, Seller
shall have the right to seek equitable relief, including, without limitation,
injunctive relief or specific performance, against Purchaser in order to enforce
the provisions of this section. The provisions of this section shall survive any
termination of this Agreement.Purchaser agrees not to contact, directly or
indirectly, any employees of the Hotel prior to the Close of Escrow, and agrees
to be liable for all of Seller's damages in the event of any such contact by
Purchaser or any of its agents or representatives.

party and its assets;

               (g) No claims shall be made against Flamingo Street, LLC,

               (i) These covenants and agreements are enforceable both by the
defaulting party and also by any owner or employee of the defaulting party.

are no third parties who are intended to benefit from or who are entitled to
rely on any of the provisions of this Agreement. No third party shall be
entitled to assert any claims or to enforce any rights whatsoever pursuant to
this Agreement. The covenants and agreements provided in this Agreement are
solely for the benefit of Seller and Purchaser and their permitted successors
and assigns respectively.
