Section 2.3 Purchase Agreement. This Lease is being entered into pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. Landlord acknowledges and agrees that Tenant is an Affiliate of and permitted assignee or designee of The Procaccanti Group, LLC (“Original Buyer”), as Buyer under the Purchase Agreement. Unless otherwise expressly provided herein to the contrary, in the event of any conflict between the terms of this Lease and the Purchase Agreement, the Purchase Agreement shall control so long as the Purchase Agreement is in effect.

Section 3.1 Annual Rent. Commencing as of the Effective Date, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, at the business address of Landlord specified in Article 21 hereof, or at such other address as Landlord shall have designated, from time to time, by notice to Tenant, rent in the amounts from time to time determined in accordance with Schedule 3.1 (the “Rent”), payable in monthly installments to Landlord on or before the fifth (5th) day of each month in advance, without demand or set-off, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Lease. The covenant and obligation of Tenant to pay Rent under this Lease is unconditional and independent of all other covenants and conditions imposed on either Landlord or Tenant, whether under this Lease, at law or in equity.

Section 3.4 Rent without Setoff. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, there shall be no deduction or setoff of any nature whatsoever from Rent payable under this Lease, by reason of (a) any damage to or destruction of the Premises or any portion thereof from whatever cause or any condemnation; (b) the lawful or unlawful prohibition of, or restriction upon, Tenant’s use of the Premises, or any portion thereof, unless caused by Landlord or unless the same is a breach of warranty or covenant by Landlord; (c) any claim that Tenant may have against Landlord by reason of any default or breach of any warranty by Landlord under this Lease or any other agreement between Landlord and Tenant, or to which Landlord and Tenant are parties; (d) any bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, composition, readjustment, liquidation, dissolution, winding up or other proceedings affecting Landlord or any assignee or transferee of Landlord; or (e) for any other cause whether similar or dissimilar to any of the foregoing.

Section 3.5 Rent Acceptance. If Landlord, at any time or times, accepts any Rent or any other sum due to it hereunder after the same becomes due and payable, such acceptance shall not excuse delay upon any subsequent occasion, or constitute, or be construed as, a waiver of any of Landlord’s rights hereunder as to payment of any Rent or any other sums due to it thereafter.

Tenant shall not assign, transfer, mortgage, hypothecate, or encumber, by operation of law or otherwise, this Lease, or any of Tenant’s right or interest herein or hereto, nor sublet the Premises, or any portion thereof, nor grant any license or right of use or occupancy with respect to the Premises, without the prior written consent of Landlord, which consent may be withheld by Landlord in its sole and absolute discretion; provided, however, the forgoing shall not restrict the letting of guest rooms and facilities in the ordinary course of the operation of the Premises as a hotel.
Section 10.2 Tenant’s Affiliates. Notwithstanding Section 10.1, Tenant may, without the consent of but with written notice to Landlord, assign this Lease to an Affiliate, provided Tenant shall not be released from any liability under this Lease. For purposes of this Lease, “Affiliate” shall have the meaning set forth in the Purchase Agreement.
Section 10.3 Survival. The provisions of this Article 10 shall survive the expiration of the Term or earlier termination of this Lease.
Landlord and Tenant agree that this Lease shall be and the same hereby is made subject and subordinate at all times to all covenants, restrictions, easements and encumbrances affecting the fee title of the Premises, and to any mortgage in any amounts and all advances thereon which are placed against or affect any of the Premises, prior to the execution of this Lease, and to all renewal, modifications, consolidation, participations, replacements and extensions thereof; provided, however, Landlord shall not encumber the Premises without Tenant’s prior written consent with any mortgage other than that certain mortgage granted to PHR OP Lender Sub, LLC in connection with the TPG Loan (as defined in the Purchase Agreement). The term “mortgages” as used herein shall be deemed to include mortgage deeds, deeds of trust and other usual forms of security instruments. The aforesaid provisions shall be self-operative and no further instrument of subordination shall be necessary unless required by any such mortgagees. Should Landlord or any mortgagees desire confirmation of such subordination, then Tenant, within ten (10) days following Landlord’s written request therefor, agrees to execute and deliver, without charge, any and all documents (in form and substance acceptable to Landlord and such mortgagees) subordinating this Lease and Tenant’s rights hereunder pursuant to the terms of this Lease. However, should any such mortgagees request that this Lease be made superior, rather than subordinate, to any such mortgage, then Tenant, within ten (10) days following Landlord’s written request therefor, agrees to execute and deliver, without charge, any and all documents (in form and substance acceptable to Landlord and such mortgagees) effectuating such priority.
Notwithstanding any language to the contrary contained in this Lease, Landlord covenants and agrees, upon Tenant’s written request, to use reasonable efforts to obtain from any mortgagee, beneficiary or trustee, lessor or other secured party under any existing mortgage, deed of trust, or other security instrument, or arrangement presently placed upon the Premises, an agreement, in recordable form, which provides that in the event of any foreclosure, sale under power of sale, or transfer in lieu of any of the foregoing, or the exercise of any remedy pursuant to any such agreement, security instrument, or arrangement (a) the Tenant’s use, possession and enjoyment of the Premises shall not be disturbed and this Lease shall continue in full force and effect so long as Tenant is not in default beyond the applicable cure periods hereunder, and (b) that such successor to the Landlord’s interest will assume the obligations of Landlord under this Lease accruing subsequent to any such foreclosure, sale or transfer.
Landlord represents and warrants to Tenant that Landlord has authority to execute, deliver and perform this Lease and each instrument and agreement to be executed and delivered by Landlord pursuant hereto and to take all of the actions contemplated hereby to be taken by Landlord.
Tenant represents and warrants to Landlord that Tenant has authority to execute, deliver and perform this Lease, and each instrument and agreement to be executed and delivered by Tenant pursuant hereto and to take all of the actions contemplated hereby to be taken by Tenant.
The provisions of this Article 12 shall survive the expiration of the Term or earlier termination of this Lease
Indemnity BY TENANT
Tenant hereby assumes all risks of personal injury or wrongful death and of loss of or damage to property by whomsoever owned, on or in the Premises or any part thereof, arising from or in connection with the use and occupancy of the Premises by Tenant, any guest, invitee, licensee, or sublessee, or caused by any accident or fire on the Premises or any part thereof, or occasioned by any nuisance made or suffered thereon, or resulting from any failure on the part of Tenant or its officers, employees, or other agents to conform to or observe laws or to maintain the Premises in a good or safe condition. Tenant will indemnify, defend, and hold the Landlord Indemnified Parties harmless from and against all claims and demands for loss or damage, including property damage, personal injury and wrongful death, arising out of or in connection with the use or occupancy of the Premises by Tenant or any person claiming by, through or under Tenant, or any accident or fire on the Premises, or any nuisance made or suffered thereon, or any failure by Tenant to keep the Premises in a safe condition, or to perform any of the covenants herein contained, arising in any case during the term of this Lease, and will reimburse the Landlord Indemnified Parties for all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, incurred by them in connection with the defense of any such claims and will hold all goods, materials, furniture, fixtures, equipment, machinery and other property whatsoever on the Premises at the sole risk of Tenant and save the Landlord Indemnified Parties harmless from any loss or damage thereto by any cause whatsoever, except to the extent any such claims, demands, costs, loss, damages and/or expenses result from the gross negligence or willful misconduct Landlord; subject, however, to the provisions of Section 14.7. This Article 13 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease for a period of one (1) year.
Section 14.1 Liability Insurance. Tenant shall provide, at its expense, and keep in force during the Term of this Lease, Commercial General Liability insurance coverage, in an insurance company or companies selected by Tenant and meeting the requirements of this Lease, in the amount of at least Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) per occurrence for bodily injury, death and for property damage arising out of the Premises, with umbrella or excess liability coverage in the amount of at least Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,000). Tenant shall supply Landlord with certificates of insurance for all the above-described policy(ies) of insurance and shall name Landlord, Tenant, and the Hotel Operator as insured parties, as their respective interests may appear, on or before the Effective Date and thereafter before the expiration of each such insurance policy. Such certificates shall provide that such insurance may not be terminated, canceled or amended except upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Landlord and Tenant.
Section 14.2 Property Insurance. During the Term of this Lease, Landlord shall maintain, and, if applicable, renew or replace with comparable coverage, the “All risk” or Special Causes of Loss Form property insurance coverage in effect for the Property as of the Effective Date, subject, however, to applicable Laws and any requirements of any Mortgage; provided, Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for the premiums for such coverages paid by Landlord during the Term of this Lease. Landlord shall supply Tenant with certificates of insurance for all the above-described policy(ies) of insurance and shall name Landlord, Tenant, and Hotel Operator as insured parties, as their respective interests may appear, on or before the Effective Date and thereafter before the expiration of each such insurance policy. Such certificates shall provide that such insurance may not be terminated, canceled or amended except upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Landlord and Tenant.
Section 14.3 Business Interruption Coverage. Tenant shall obtain coverage for the actual loss sustained (including rental value) resulting from the necessary interruption of business caused by direct physical damage to or destruction of real or personal property resulting from an occurrence covered by the insurance described in Section 14.2 above, covering at least twelve (12) months period including one hundred eighty (180) days subsequent to completion of any required repairs or replacements necessary to return the Premises to a condition at least as good as the condition prior to the interruption event. Tenant shall supply Landlord with certificates of insurance for all the above-described policy(ies) of insurance and shall name Landlord, Tenant, and the Hotel Operator as insured parties, as their respective interests may appear, on or before the Effective Date and thereafter before the expiration of each such insurance policy. Such certificates shall provide that such insurance may not be terminated, canceled or amended except upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Landlord and Tenant.
Section 14.4 Other Required Insurance. Without limiting the generality of the insurance requirements as set forth in the foregoing provisions of this Article 14, which shall be deemed minimum insurance requirements hereunder, Tenant shall obtain and maintain in force throughout the entire Term of this Lease such other insurance coverages, in such amounts, as may be required under any management or operating agreement Tenant may have with a Hotel Operator for the Premises and Hotel.
Section 14.5 Policy Requirements. Any insurance required to be provided by Tenant pursuant to this Lease may be provided by blanket insurance covering the Premises and other locations of Tenant and Affiliates of Tenant, provided such blanket insurance complies with all of the other requirements of this Lease with respect to the insurance involved. If Tenant should fail to pay any insurance premium required under this Article 14 then Landlord may, but shall not be obligated to, pay such insurance premium and add the amount of such insurance premium to the next installment of the Rent. Payment of such insurance premium by Landlord shall not constitute a waiver by Landlord of the default by Tenant for failing to pay such insurance premiums. All property and casualty insurance and business interruption insurance required hereunder shall have attached thereto the Lender’s Loss Payable Endorsement (Form 438 BFU NS), or its equivalent, or a loss payable clause acceptable to PHR OP Lender Sub, LLC (“Lender”).
Section 14.6 Insurance Carriers. All insurance coverage required to be carried hereunder shall be carried with insurance companies licensed or permitted to do business in the state in which the Premises is located and which have a credit rating of “A-” or better by A.M. Best or A- or better by Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services, Inc., a division of The McGraw Hill Companies, Inc. (“S&P”) or “A2” or better by Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. (“Moody’s”).
Section 14.7 Waiver of Subrogation Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, neither Landlord nor Tenant shall be liable by way of subrogation or otherwise to the other party or to any insurance company insuring the other party for any loss or damage to any of the property of the Landlord or Tenant covered by insurance even though such loss or damage might have been occasioned by the negligence of the Landlord or Tenant or their respective officers, directors, members, partners, employees, agents, representatives, successors and assigns. This release shall be in effect only so long as the applicable insurance policies shall contain a clause or endorsement to the effect that the waiver shall not affect the right of the insured to recover under such policies. Each party shall use commercially reasonable efforts, including payment of any additional premium, to have its insurance policies contain the standard waiver of subrogation clause. In the event Landlord’s or Tenant’s insurance carrier declines to include in such carrier’s policies a standard waiver of subrogation clause, Landlord or Tenant shall promptly notify the other party.
Section 15.1 Casualty. In case of any damage to or destruction of the Premises, the Building or any part thereof, Tenant shall promptly give written notice thereof to Landlord generally describing the nature, extent and cause of such damage or destruction. All matters with respect to damage shall be governed by the Purchase Agreement; provided, however, in the event the Purchase Agreement is terminated in accordance Section 10.1 of the Purchase Agreement, with all insurance proceeds payable from Property Insurance maintained in accordance with Section 14.2 shall belong to Landlord (less any proceeds allocable to any lost profits or costs incurred by Tenant for the period prior to the termination of the Purchase Agreement and this Lease).
Section 16.1 Allocation of Award. If any Eminent Domain is commenced or threatened with respect to the Premises, such matters be governed by the Purchase Agreement; provided, however, in the event the Purchase Agreement is terminated in accordance Section 10.1 of the Purchase Agreement, with any award or compensation with respect to such Eminent Domain shall belong to Landlord (less any award or compensation allocable to any lost profits or costs incurred by Tenant during the Term of this Lease for the period prior to the termination of the Purchase Agreement and this Lease).
Section 17.1 Defaults of Tenant.
(a) Tenant shall be in “Default” if (i) Tenant shall not have paid Rent or any other amount payable by Tenant pursuant to this Lease within ten (10) days following Tenant’s receipt of written notice from Landlord stating that such payment was not made prior to its due date (a “Monetary Default”); (ii) Tenant shall not have performed any of the other covenants, terms, conditions or provisions of this Lease within thirty (30) days after Tenant’s receipt of written notice specifying such failure; provided, however, that with respect to those failures that cannot with due diligence be cured within such thirty (30)-day period, Tenant shall not be deemed to be in default hereunder if Tenant commences to cure such default within such thirty (30)-day period and thereafter continues the curing of such default with all due diligence, but in any event not to exceed sixty (60) days from the commencement of such cure; (iii) Tenant shall fail to maintain any or all of the insurance required hereunder and such failure shall continue for three (3) business days after written notice thereof given by Landlord to Tenant; or (iv) Tenant is adjudicated bankrupt or adjudged to be insolvent; a receiver or trustee is appointed for substantially all of the property and affairs of Tenant; Tenant makes an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, files a petition in bankruptcy or insolvency or for reorganization, or makes application for the appointment of a receiver; or any execution or attachment is issued against Tenant or substantially all of the property of Tenant, whereby the Premises or the Building and related improvements thereon are taken or occupied or attempted to be taken or occupied by someone other than Tenant or any subtenant of Tenant, except as may be permitted herein, and such adjudication, appointment, assignment, petition, execution or attachment shall not be set aside, vacated, discharged or bonded within sixty (60) days after the issuance of the same (any of the Defaults in the immediately preceding clauses (ii), (iii) and (iv), a “Non-Monetary Default”).
(b) If Landlord shall claim that Tenant is in Default, Landlord shall have the right to institute from time to time an action or actions (i) to recover actual damages (exclusive of punitive, consequential or special damages), (ii) for injunctive and/or other equitable relief, or (iii) to recover possession of the Premises and terminate this Lease.
(c) In the event of any termination of this Lease in accordance with the provisions of Section 17.1(b) above, Tenant shall pay to Landlord all Rent, and other sums required to be paid by Tenant to and including the date of such termination, reentry or repossession.
Section 17.2 Defaults of Landlord.
(a) If Landlord shall fail to observe or perform any provision hereof and such failure shall continue for thirty (30) days after written notice to Landlord detailing such failure, then a Default of Landlord shall exist under this Lease, provided, however, that in the case of any such failure which cannot with diligence be cured within such thirty (30)-day period, if Landlord shall commence promptly to cure the same within such thirty (30)-day period and thereafter prosecute the curing thereof with diligence, the time within which such failure may be cured shall be extended for such period as is necessary to complete the curing thereof with diligence.
(b) If a Default of Landlord shall have occurred and be continuing, beyond the notice, grace and cure periods set forth above, Tenant may terminate this Lease by giving Landlord notice of Tenant’s intention to do so. Upon the fifteenth (15th) day next succeeding the giving of such notice, this Lease and the Leasehold Estate shall expire and terminate on such date as fully and completely and with the same effect as if such date were the date herein fixed with the expiration of the Term of this Lease, all rights of Landlord and obligations of Tenant hereunder shall expire and terminate, and Rent shall be apportioned as of such date and Landlord shall promptly refund to Tenant any Rent theretofore paid which is allocable to the period subsequent to such date.
Section 17.3 Cross-Default. Any default by Landlord, as seller, under the Purchase Agreement beyond any notice and cure period set forth therein shall be a Default by Landlord hereunder. Any default by Tenant, as buyer, under the Purchase Agreement beyond any notice and cure period set forth therein shall be a Default by Tenant hereunder. Any material Default by Landlord under this Lease beyond any notice and cure period set forth herein shall be a default by Landlord, as seller, under the Purchase Agreement. Any material Default by Tenant under this Lease beyond any notice and cure period set forth herein shall be a default by Tenant, as buyer, under the Purchase Agreement.
Section 17.4 Rights to Cure. Each party shall have the right, but shall not be required, to pay such sums or do any act which requires the expenditure of monies which may be necessary or appropriate by reason of the Default of the other party to perform any of the provisions of this Lease. In the event of the exercise of any such right by Landlord, Tenant agrees to pay to Landlord forthwith upon demand all such sums, as Additional Rent, together with Interest from the date advanced by Landlord until repaid by Tenant at the rate set forth in Article 36 above. In the event of the exercise of such right by Tenant, Landlord agrees to pay to Tenant forthwith upon demand all such sums, together with Interest from the date advanced by Tenant until repaid by Landlord at the rate set forth in Article 36 above. Alternatively, Tenant may, at its election, and upon notice to Landlord, deduct such sum together with interest thereon from the next succeeding payment or payments of Rent, and such deduction shall in no way be considered a failure on the part of Tenant to pay such Rent.
Failure of Landlord or Tenant to complain of any act or omission on the part of the other party, no matter how long the same may continue, shall not be deemed to be a waiver by said party of any of its rights hereunder. No waiver by Landlord or Tenant at any time, express or implied, of any breach of any provision of this Lease shall be deemed a waiver of a breach of any other provision of this Lease or a consent to any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision. No acceptance by Landlord of any partial payment shall constitute an accord or satisfaction but such payment shall only be deemed a partial payment on account. Notwithstanding any remedies expressly set forth in this Lease (except as otherwise expressly set forth herein), all rights and remedies provided for in this Lease or otherwise existing at law or in equity are cumulative, and a party’s exercise of any right or remedy under this Lease or under applicable law is not exclusive and shall not preclude such party from exercising any other right or remedy that may be available to it at law or in equity.

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the provisions of this Article 20 shall not be applicable with respect to: (i) the payment of money, and (ii) the parties’ obligations pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, including, but not limited to, closing on the Final Closing Date.

Any such certificate may be relied upon by the party requesting it and any other person, firm or corporation to whom the same may be exhibited or delivered, and the contents of such certificate shall be binding on the party executing same.
This Lease and the performance thereof shall be governed, interpreted, construed and regulated by the laws of the State in which the Premises are located, without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of law.
Tenant has no right to retain possession of the Premises or any part thereof beyond the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease. In the event Tenant does not immediately surrender the Premises upon expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, then notwithstanding anything herein or the Purchase Agreement to the contrary, Landlord shall be entitled to pursue any and all remedies against Tenant which may be available at law and/or in equity (excluding, however, punitive, consequential and special damage)s.
waiver of landlord’s lien
Landlord does hereby waive any right it may have pursuant to applicable law to distrain trade fixtures or any property of Tenant and any landlord’s lien or similar lien upon trade fixtures or any other property of Tenant.
Waiver of Jury Trial
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Landlord and Tenant hereby waive trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim brought by either against the other, upon any matters whatsoever arising out of or in any way connection with this Lease, Tenant’s use or occupancy of the Premises, and/or any claim of injury or damage.
If any term, covenant, condition or provision of this Lease or the application thereof to any person or circumstance shall, at any time or to any extent, be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining terms, covenants, conditions and provisions shall not be affected thereby, and each term, covenant, condition and provision of this Lease shall be valid and be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Memorandum of Lease
Concurrent with the execution and delivery of this Lease, Landlord and Tenant shall execute and deliver, in recordable form, a Memorandum of Ground Lease, setting forth a description of the Premises, the Term of this Lease and any other portions thereof, excepting the rental provisions, in substantially the form attached to this Lease as Exhibit B (“Memorandum of Lease”).
Wherever herein the singular number is used, the same shall include the plural, and the masculine gender shall include the feminine and neuter genders, and vice versa, as the context shall require. The section headings used herein are for reference and convenience only, and shall not enter into the interpretation hereof. This Lease may be executed in several counterparts, each of which shall be an original, but all of which shall constitute one and the same instrument. The submission of this Lease for examination does not constitute a reservation of or agreement to lease the Premises; and this Lease shall become effective and binding only upon proper execution and unconditional delivery thereof by Landlord and Tenant.
There shall be no merger of this Lease or of the leasehold estate hereby created with the fee estate in the Premises or any part thereof by reason of the fact that the same person, firm, corporation, or other legal entity may acquire or hold, directly or indirectly, this Lease or the leasehold estate and the fee estate in the Premises or an interest in such fee estate.
No oral statement or prior written matter shall have any force or effect. Landlord and Tenant agree that neither party is relying on any representations or agreements other than those contained in this Lease. This Lease shall not be modified or canceled except by writing subscribed by all parties.
Except as herein otherwise expressly provided, the covenants, conditions and agreements contained in this Lease shall bind and inure to the benefit of Landlord and Tenant and their respective heirs, successors, administrators and assigns.
Tenant and Landlord represent and warrant to each other that neither has had any negotiations, dealings or conversations with any broker or agent, licensed or otherwise in connection with this Lease. Landlord and Tenant each covenant to protect, defend, hold harmless and indemnify the other from and against any and all losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees) arising out of or in connection with any other claim by any brokers or agents for brokerage commissions relating to this Lease alleged to be due because of negotiations, dealings or conversations with the indemnifying party.
In the event of any suit, action, or other proceeding at law or in equity (collectively, “action”), by either party hereto against the other, by reason of any matter arising out of this Lease, the prevailing party shall recover, not only its legal costs, but also reasonable attorneys’ fees (to be fixed by the Court) for the maintenance or defense of said action, as the case may be.
If Landlord’s interest in this Lease shall pass to another, or if the Rent hereunder shall be assigned, or if a party other than Landlord shall become entitled to collect the rent due hereunder, then notice thereof shall be given to Tenant by Landlord in writing, or, if Landlord is an individual and shall have died or become incapacitated, by Landlord’s legal representative, accompanied by due proof of the appointment of such legal representative. Until such notice and proof shall be received by Tenant, Tenant may continue to pay the Rent due hereunder to the one to whom, and in the manner in which, the last preceding installment of Rent hereunder was paid, and each such payment shall fully discharge Tenant.
Tenant shall not be obligated to recognize any agent for the collection of Rent or otherwise authorized to act with respect to the Premises until notice of the appointment and the extent of the authority of such agent shall be given to Tenant by the one appointing such agent.
Landlord may transfer its interest in this Lease to any party to whom Landlord transfers the Premises.
For the purposes of this Lease, “Interest” shall mean the lesser of the WSJ Prime Rate plus four percent (4%) per annum, or the maximum rate allowed by law. In the event Landlord or Tenant fails to pay any amount when due to the other party within ten (10) days after notice that payment is late, the defaulting party shall pay the non-defaulting party such amount plus Interest accruing from the original date such amount was due until such amount is ultimately paid.
