(1) All of our hotels are leased to or operated by third-parties;
HPT does not operate hotels. At various times during 2001, 16 of our
hotels, containing 2,380 rooms, began to be operated by Marriott
International under a long-term management contract; most of these
hotels were previously leased to Marriott. These hotels are now leased
to a 100% subsidiary of ours, as allowed by the REIT Modernization Act
which became effective in 2001. Although our long-term management
contract with Marriott includes security features which are similar to
those under our leases, after a property begins to be operated under a
management contract rather than under a lease, our consolidated
revenues include hotel sales rather than rental income and our
expenses include hotel operating expenses. We have agreed to this new
arrangement for a total of 35 hotels, containing 5,382 rooms and
expect it to begin for the remaining 19 hotels during 2002. For the
2002 first quarter, the 16 hotels leased to our subsidiary tenant
generated net revenues over expenses and FF&E escrows, as follows:

First Quarter
Hotel operating revenues $18,139
Less: Hotel operating expenses 11,169
Net payments by our manager to our subsidiary tenant 6,970
Less: Payments made into FF&E Reserve escrows 943
Net $ 6,027

(2) Some of the HPT leases provide that FF&E Reserve escrows are
owned by HPT. Other leases provide that FF&E Reserve escrows are owned
by the tenant and HPT has a security and remainder interest in the
escrow account. When HPT owns the escrow, generally accepted
accounting principles require that payments into the escrow be
reported as additional rent. When HPT has a security and remainder
interest in the escrow account, deposits are not included in revenue
but are included in FFO. CAD excludes all FF&E Reserves.

(3) The Company recognizes percentage rental income received for
the first, second and third quarters in the fourth quarter. Although
recognition of revenue is deferred for purposes of calculating net
income, the calculations of FFO and CAD include amounts received with
respect to the periods shown.
