                              2000 PROXY STATEMENT

General

         The enclosed proxy is solicited by the Board of Directors of WestCoast
Hospitality Corporation, formerly Cavanaughs Hospitality Corporation (the
"Company") for use at the 2000 Annual General Meeting of Stockholders to be held
at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, May 22, 2000, at Cavanaughs Ridpath Hotel, 515 West
Sprague Avenue, Spokane, Washington, and at any adjournment or postponement
thereof (the "Meeting"). Only holders of record of the Company's Common Stock,
par value $0.01 per share (the "Common Stock"), at the close of business on
March 31, 2000 will be entitled to notice of and to vote at the Meeting. On that
date, the Company had 12,937,726 shares of Common Stock outstanding. Each share
of Common Stock outstanding on the record date is entitled to one vote.

         The address of the Company's principal executive offices is 201 West
North River Drive, Suite 100, Spokane, Washington 99201.

         This Proxy Statement and the accompanying proxy are being mailed to the
Company's stockholders on or about April 21, 2000.

Voting

         Shares of Common Stock for which proxies are properly executed and
returned will be voted at the Meeting in accordance with the directions noted
thereon or, in the absence of directions to the contrary, will be voted (i)
"FOR" the election of the four nominees for the Board of Directors named on the
following pages, provided that if any one or more of such nominees should become
unavailable for election for any reason, such shares will be voted for the
election of such substitute nominee or nominees as the Board of Directors may
propose; (ii) FOR the amendment to the 1998 Stock Incentive Plan to increase the
shares available for issuance under the Plan from 1,200,000 shares to 1,400,000
shares; and (iii) "FOR" the ratification of the appointment of
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as auditors for the Company for 2000. Under
Washington law, the Company's Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws, the
presence at the Meeting, in person or by duly authorized proxy, of the holders
of a majority of the outstanding shares of Common Stock entitled to vote
constitutes a quorum for the transaction of business. The four nominees for the
Board of Directors who receive the greatest number of votes cast for the
election of Directors by the shares present in person or represented by proxy at
the Meeting and entitled to vote shall be elected Directors. The affirmative
vote of a majority of shares entitled to vote and present in person or by proxy
at the Meeting is required for approval of any other matters submitted to a vote
of the Stockholders. Abstention from voting for a nominee for director may make
it less likely that the nominee will be one of the four nominees for director
who receive the greatest number of votes cast. Abstention from voting on the
other proposals 
                                       3

<PAGE>

will have no effect, since the approval of those proposals is based solely on
the number of votes actually cast.

         Brokerage firms and other intermediaries holding shares of Common Stock
in street name for customers are generally required to vote such shares in the
manner directed by their customers. In the absence of timely directions,
brokerage firms and other intermediaries generally will have discretion to vote
their customers' shares in the election of directors on the proposal to approve
the amendment to the Company's 1998 Stock Incentive Plan, and on the proposal to
ratify the appointment of auditors. If a brokerage firm or other intermediary
votes its customers' shares on some but not all proposals, the effect of the
non-vote will vary depending on the proposal. A non-vote for a nominee for
director will make it less likely that the nominee will be one of the four
nominees for director who receive the greatest number of votes cast. A non-vote
on any of the other proposals will have no effect, since approval of these
proposals is based solely on the number of votes actually cast.

         The Company will bear the expense of preparing, printing and
distributing proxy materials to its shareholders. In addition to solicitations
by mail, a number of regular employees of the Company may solicit proxies on
behalf of the Board of Directors in person or by telephone and may also retain
others on behalf of the Board of Directors to assist in the solicitation of
proxies by mail, telephone, telegraph and personal interview. The Company will
also reimburse brokerage firms and other intermediaries for their expenses in
forwarding proxy materials to beneficial owners of the Company's Common Stock.

Revocation

         Any stockholder giving a proxy may revoke it at any time before it is
voted by delivering to the Company's General Counsel a written notice of
revocation or a duly executed proxy bearing a later date, or by attending the
Meeting and electing to vote in person.


                        PROPOSAL 1: ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

         In accordance with the Company's By-Laws, the Board of Directors has
increased the number of Directors constituting the Board from the original seven
to nine members, with all of the Directors assigned to a classification based on
the time for which they hold office. Two of the initial seven Directors were
assigned to hold office for an initial term expiring at this annual meeting of
stockholders and have been nominated for reelection at this annual meeting for a
term expiring at the annual meeting of Stockholders held in the third year
following their election and until their successors shall have been elected and
qualified. An eighth Director was appointed in 1999 with a term expiring at this
annual meeting and has been nominated for reelection at this annual meeting for
a term expiring at the annual meeting of Stockholders held in the third year
following his election and until his successor shall have been elected and
qualified. The Board of Directors has nominated for election at this annual

                                       4

<PAGE>

meeting a new Director to fill the ninth position for a term expiring at the
annual meeting of Stockholders held in the second year following his election
and until his successor shall have been elected and qualified. The result will
be that three of the nine Directors will be elected each year beginning at the
2001 annual meeting. Shares of Common Stock for which proxies are properly
executed and returned will be voted at the Meeting in accordance with the
directions noted thereon or, in the absence of directions to the contrary, will
be voted "FOR" the election of the four nominees named below for the above
described Director positions. If any nominee should become unavailable for any
reason, it is intended that votes will be cast for a substitute nominee
designated by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors has no reason to
believe that the nominees named will be unable to serve if elected. The four
nominees who receive the greatest number of votes cast by stockholders present
in person or by proxy and certified to vote at the Meeting, a quorum being
present, shall be elected Directors.

Committees of the Board of Directors

         The Company has established standing committees of its Board of
Directors, including an Audit and a Compensation Committee. Each of these
Committees is responsible to the full Board of Directors, and its activities are
therefore subject to Board approval. The functions performed by these Committees
are summarized below:

         Audit Committee. The Audit Committee is responsible for making
recommendations concerning the engagement of the Company's independent public
accountants, reviewing with the independent public accountants the plans and
results of the audit engagement, approving professional services provided by the
independent public accountants, considering the range of audit and non-audit
fees and reviewing the adequacy of the Company's internal accounting controls.
The voting members of the Audit Committee are Peter F. Stanton, Ronald R. Taylor
and Stephen R. Blank, with CFO Arthur M. Coffey attending meetings as a
non-voting representative of management. The Audit Committee was formed in April
of 1998 following the initial public offering of the Company. The audit
committee met three times during 1999 to review the audit plan, quarterly
earnings, audit committee charter, annual audit and management report.

         Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee establishes
salaries, incentives and other forms of compensation for Directors, officers and
other executives of the Company. This Committee also administers the Company's
various incentive compensation and benefit plans and recommends the
establishment of policies relating to such plans. The voting members of the
Compensation Committee are Ronald R. Taylor and Peter F. Stanton, with CEO
Donald K. Barbieri attending meetings as a non-voting representative of
management. The Compensation Committee met three times in 1999.


Compensation of Directors

         Directors who are employees of the Company do not receive any fees for
their service on the Board of Directors or any committee thereof. The Company
pays each of its non-employee Directors an annual fee equal to $6,000, 50% of
which is payable in cash and 50% of which is payable in shares of Common Stock.
In addition, each non-employee Director is paid $500 for attendance at each
meeting of the Board of Directors and $250 for attendance at each meeting of a
committee of the Board of Directors of which such Director is a member. In
addition, the Company reimburses Directors for their out-of-pocket expenses
incurred in connection with their service on the Board of Directors. Each of the
non-employee Directors at the time of the Initial Public Offering ("IPO") of the
Company or at the time of their later initial appointment to the Board of
Directors was granted an option to purchase 10,000 shares of Common Stock of the
Company at $15/share, on terms more fully described below (see "1999 Employment
Contracts, Grants of Stock and Stock Options and Exercises" below).

             SECTION 16(a) BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP REPORTING COMPLIANCE

         Based on the Company's review of Forms 3, 4 and 5 and any amendment
thereto furnished to it pursuant to Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), all such required forms were filed on a
timely basis.

 
                CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS

         Effective November 1, 1997, prior to the initial public offering of the
Company, the Company (i) contributed certain assets not related to its core
hospitality business to Inland Northwest Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary
of the Company ("INWC"), and (ii) distributed shares of capital stock of INWC
and Huckleberry Bay Company, another wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company
("HBC"), on a pro rata basis, to the then Stockholders of the Company As a
result of the foregoing transactions, the following assets are no longer owned
by the Company: recreational real estate in Priest Lake, Idaho, a long-term
residence inn operation, residential condominium properties, an interest in a
milk processing and distribution business with associated real property, and a
retail sales operation. The Company entered into an agreement with INWC,
pursuant to which it will provide management, development, accounting and other
administrative services to INWC in exchange for commissions, leasing fees,
management fees, service fees and development fees, as applicable, based on
certain percentages and costs incurred by the Company in connection with
providing such services. The agreement is automatically renewed annually and is
subject to termination at the option of either party upon 60 days' notice before
such renewal date. During 1999 the Company recorded fees and other income from
the INWC agreement in the amount of $222,600.

         With respect to material transactions (or series of related
transactions) between the Company and related parties, the Company has
implemented a policy requiring any such transaction to be approved by a majority
of the non-employee Directors, if any, upon such Directors' determination that
the terms of the transaction are no less favorable to the Company than those
that could be obtained from unrelated third parties.

 
                       REPORT OF COMPENSATION COMMITTEE
                            ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

         The Compensation Committee, the voting members of which are two
non-employee Directors, Mr. Taylor and Mr. Stanton, implements and endorses the
goals of the Company's executive compensation program, which reflect three
guiding principles: (i) to provide compensation and benefits that allow the
Company to maintain competitive compensation to attract and retain executives
with the skills critical to the Company's long-term success, (ii) to reward
performance in attaining business objectives and maximizing stockholder value

                                       9

<PAGE>

and (iii) to encourage Company stock ownership through officer ownership
guidelines that are monitored by the Committee on an ongoing basis.

         The following table provides information for the past three fiscal
years concerning all compensation received by those persons who were, in 1999,
the Company's Chief Executive Officer and the four other most highly compensated
executive officers of the Company (the "named executive officers").

       During 1999, the Compensation Committee's compensation policies with
regard to the Company's executive officers (including the named executive
officers) were as follows: (i) The base 1999 salary of the executive officers
was increased by 1.5% from 1998 base salary to reflect a cost of living
increase; (2) the Committee established a target incentive bonus for the year of
50% of the base salary to be paid 25% at the end of any quarter for which the
Company achieved its planned earnings per share and 25% at the end of the 1999
year if the Company achieved its target earnings per share for the 1999 year.

         In the fourth quarter of 1999 the Committee, joined by the two other
non-employee Directors, Mr. Blank and Mr. Templin, commissioned and reviewed a
report by a qualified independent consulting firm on total compensation for the
Company's executive officers relative to the Company's competitive peer group.
Based on that assessment, the Compensation Committee granted stock options to
certain executive officers effective November 1, 1999 at the then market value

--------------

(1) Includes contributions to the Company's 401(k) plan as well as premiums paid
with respect to such executive officer's health and disability insurance
policies.
(2) Excludes value attributed to 3,000 shares of restricted stock granted to
Arthur M. Coffey at the initial public offering (see "1998 Employment contracts,
Grants of Stock and Stock options and Exercises" below).
(3) Includes value attributed to 3,000 shares of restricted stock granted to
Arthur M. Coffey.

of the Company's stock in order to more closely approximate the median
compensation of executives of competitive peer group companies. The Committee's
criteria in 1999 for the compensation of the CEO of the Company were the same as
described above for the other executive officers.

   1999 EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS, GRANTS OF STOCK AND STOCK OPTIONS AND EXERCISES

Employment Agreements

         The Company had employment agreements with each of Donald K. Barbieri,
Arthur M. Coffey, Richard L. Barbieri, David M. Bell and Thomas M. Barbieri
which provided for 1999 base salaries of $160,764.71 in the case of Donald K.
Barbieri, $134,819.31 in the case of Mr. Coffey, $99,566.14 in the case of
Richard L. Barbieri, $99,566.14 in the case of Mr. Bell and $133,402.70 in the
case of Thomas M. Barbieri, subject, in each case, to periodic increases. Each
executive officer was eligible to receive annual bonuses as determined by the
Compensation Committee and was entitled to participate in all existing or future
benefit plans of the Company, on the same basis as other senior officers of the
Company.

         The 1999 employment agreements with these named executive officers (as
used below, each an "Executive") were substantially similar and provided as
follows. Each Executive shall serve in the position described above through
December 31, 1999, unless terminated earlier in accordance with the terms of
such agreement. Thereafter, each agreement automatically renews for additional
one-year periods, unless terminated by either party upon 120 days' notice prior
to any renewal. The agreements with each Executive other than Donald K. Barbieri
automatically renewed at the end of 1999. Following 1999, Donald K. Barbieri
serves at the pleasure of the Board of Directors. The agreements of the other
Executives may be terminated by the Company for Cause (as defined in such
agreement) or by the Executive (i) for Good Reason (as defined in such
agreement) or (ii) within six months of a Change of Control of the Company (as
defined in such agreement). If the Executive terminates the agreement for Good
Reason (or the Company terminates the agreement without Cause) or, after the
initial term ends, unilaterally determines to not renew such Executive's
agreement, the Executive will receive a severance payment equal to two times
such Executive's total compensation in the prior year, plus a continuation of
all benefits for a two-year period, and all outstanding options of such
Executive shall become fully vested. If the Executive terminates the agreement
following a Change of Control, the severance payment will be equal to three
times such Executive's total compensation for the prior year. The Executive is
required to devote his full business time and attention to the business and
affairs of the Company, except that he may devote such reasonable amount of
time, as he determines, to (i) serving, with the approval of the Board, as a
Director, trustee or member of any board or committee of any organization, (ii)
engaging in charitable and community activities, (iii) managing his personal
investments and affairs, and (iv) acting as a Director and officer of Inland
Northwest Corporation, previously a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company;
provided, however, that such activities may not involve any material conflict of
interest with the interests of the Company or interfere materially with the
performance of his duties and responsibilities under such agreement.

                                       14

<PAGE>

         Each Executive is eligible to receive a bonus under the Company's
management bonus plan or such other plan adopted from time to time. The award
and amount of such bonus shall be based upon the Compensation Committee's
determination of such Executive's actual performance as measured against
established goals. The Company has also agreed to reimburse the Executive for
any federal, state or local excise taxes ("Excise Tax"), and any additional
taxes to which he may be subject, on any payments to the Executive from the
Company as a result of accelerated vesting of his options, up to a maximum
reimbursement equal to two times the amount of such Excise Tax.

         The options have a term of ten years. Except in the case of
non-employee Directors, fifty percent of each recipient's options will vest on
the fourth anniversary of the date of grant and the remaining 50% will vest on
the fifth anniversary of the date of grant. This vesting schedule will change
if, beginning one year after the option grant date, the stock price of the
Common Stock remains at the following appreciation levels (measured as a
percentage increase over the stock price at the time the option was granted) for
60 consecutive trading days:

         Upon consummation of the IPO, and upon the subsequent appointment or
election of a non-employee as Director, non-employee Directors were granted
options under the 1998 Stock Incentive Plan to purchase 10,000 shares of Common
Stock, subject to one year restriction on sale and vesting in equal percentages
over five years.

         Such options shall be exercisable, subject to vesting, for ten years
from the date of grant and in all other respects shall be subject to the terms
and conditions of the 1998 Stock Incentive Plan. Vesting of such options is also
conditioned upon the holder's employment with the Company on the scheduled
vesting date. No options had been exercised as of December 31, 1999.

1998 Stock Incentive Plan

         In January 1998, the Board adopted the 1998 Stock Incentive Plan to
attract and retain officers, key employees and consultants. Additional options
may be granted subject to Board approval. An aggregate of 1,200,000 shares of
Common Stock, subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends and
similar events, has been authorized for issuance upon exercise of options, stock
appreciation rights ("SARs"), and other awards, including restricted or deferred
stock awards under the 1998 Stock Incentive Plan. The Compensation Committee
administers the 1998 Stock Incentive Plan and determines to whom options, SARs,
restricted stock purchase rights and other awards are to be granted and the
terms and conditions, including the number of shares and the period of
exercisability, thereof. Upon consummation of the IPO, and upon the subsequent
appointment or election of a non-employee as Director, non-employee Directors
were granted options under the 1998 Stock Incentive Plan to purchase 10,000
shares of Common Stock, subject to one year restriction on sale and vesting
equal percentages over five years.

         The 1998 Stock Incentive Plan authorizes the grant or issuance of
various options and other awards. Nonqualified stock options ("NQSOs") may be
granted for any term specified by the Compensation Committee and will provide

---------------------
(1) No options were exercised or exercisable in 1999.
(2) Represents the aggregate fair market value of Common Stock subject to
outstanding options, less the exercise price of the options, based on the
closing price of the Common Stock on December 31, 1999. A zero opposite, a named
executive officer's name indicates that, as of December 31, 1999, such officer's
options were not in-the-money.

                                       16

for the right to purchase Common Stock at a specified price which, except with
respect to NQSOs intended to qualify as performance-based compensation under
Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"),
may be less than fair market value on the date of grant (but not less than par
value), and may become exercisable (at the discretion of the Compensation
Committee) in one or more installments after the date of grant. Incentive stock
options may be granted only to employees and if granted will be designed to
comply with the provisions of the Code and will be subject to restrictions
contained in the Code, including having an exercise price equal to at least 100%
of fair market value of Common Stock on the grant date and ten year restriction
on their term, but may be subsequently modified to disqualify them from
treatment as an incentive stock option. The maximum fair market value
(determined on the date of grant) of shares which may be issued pursuant to
incentive stock options granted under the 1998 Stock Incentive Plan to any
individual in any calendar year may not exceed $100,000. SARs granted by the
Compensation Committee in connection with stock options or other awards
typically will provide for payments to the holder based upon increases in the
price of the Common Stock over the exercise price of the related option or other
awards, but alternatively may be based upon other criteria such as book value.
Participants may receive dividend equivalents representing the value of the
dividends per share paid by the Company, calculated with reference to the number
of shares covered by the stock options, SARs or other awards held by the
participant. Performance awards may be granted by the Compensation Committee on
an individual or group basis and may include bonus or "phantom" stock awards
that provide for payments based upon increases in the price of the Common Stock
over a predetermined period. Restricted stock may be sold to participants at
various prices (but not below par value) and made subject to such restrictions
as may be determined by the Compensation Committee. Deferred stock awards may be
granted to participants, typically without payment of consideration, but subject
to vesting conditions based on continued employment or on performance criteria
established by the Compensation Committee. Whereas purchasers of restricted
stock will have voting rights and will receive dividends prior to the time when
the restrictions lapse, recipients of deferred stock generally will have no
voting or dividend rights prior to the time when vesting conditions are
satisfied.

         Payments for the shares purchased upon the exercise of options may be
in cash or, if the terms of an option so provide, with shares of Common Stock
owned by the optionee (or issuable upon exercise of the option) or with other
lawful consideration, including services rendered.

         No option, SAR or other right to acquire Common Stock granted under the
1998 Stock Incentive Plan may be assigned or transferred by the grantee, except
by will or the laws of succession, although the shares underlying such rights
may be transferred if all applicable restrictions have lapsed. During the
lifetime of the holder of any option or right, such option or right may be
exercised only by the holder.

                                       17

<PAGE>

         The Compensation Committee will have the right to accelerate, in whole
or in part, from time to time, including upon a change in control of the
Company, conditionally or unconditionally, the right to exercise any option or
other award granted under the 1998 Stock Incentive Plan.

         Amendments of the 1998 Plan to increase the number of shares as to
which options, SARs, restricted stock and other awards may be granted (except
for adjustments resulting from stock splits and similar events) will require the
approval of the Company's Stockholders. In all other respects, the 1998 Stock
Incentive Plan may be amended, modified, suspended or terminated by the
Compensation Committee, unless such action would otherwise require shareholder
approval as a matter of applicable law, regulation or rule. Amendments of the
1998 Stock Incentive Plan will not, without the consent of the participant,
affect such person's rights under an award previously granted, unless the award
itself otherwise expressly so provides. The 1998 Stock Incentive Plan will
terminate ten years after the date the 1998 Stock Incentive Plan was adopted by
the Board and approved by the Company's Stockholders.

Summary of Certain Federal Income Tax Consequences of the 1998 Stock Incentive
Plan

         The federal income tax consequences to the Company and to any person
granted a stock option under the 1998 Stock Incentive Plan under the existing
applicable provisions of the Code and the regulations thereunder are
substantially as follows.

         With respect to incentive stock options, the tax consequences to an
optionee will vary depending on whether certain holding period requirements are
met. In addition, an option will cease to be an incentive stock option, and
thereafter be taxed as a nonqualified stock option, if the optionee exercises
the option more than three months following termination of employment for any
reason other than death or disability or more than one year following
termination of employment on account of disability.

         If an optionee acquiring stock pursuant to an incentive stock option
does not dispose of the stock until at least one year after the transfer of the
stock to the optionee and at least two years from the date of grant of the
option, then, subject to the alternative minimum tax rules discussed below,
there will be no tax consequences to the optionee or the Company when the
incentive stock option is granted or when it is exercised. When the stock is
ultimately sold, gain or loss will be determined based on the difference between
the net proceeds of the sale and the aggregate exercise price paid for the
stock, and the optionee will be required to report such gain or loss as
long-term capital gain or loss on his or her federal income tax return for the
year in which the sale occurs.

         If stock acquired upon exercise of an incentive stock option is sold by
the optionee and, at the time of the sale, the holding period requirements
described in the preceding paragraph have not been met, the federal income tax
consequences to the optionee will be as follows:

                                       18

<PAGE>

         (a) The optionee will be required to report, on his or her federal
income tax return for the year in which the sale occurs, additional compensation
income equal to the difference between the fair market value of the stock at the
time of exercise of the option and the exercise price at which the stock was
acquired (the Company will generally be entitled to a compensation deduction in
an equivalent amount).

         (b) For purposes of determining gain or loss upon sale of the stock, an
amount equal to this compensation income will be added to the exercise price at
which the stock was acquired, and the total will be the optionee's adjusted cost
of the stock and the net proceeds of the sale, and the optionee will be required
to report such gain or loss as long-term or short-term (depending on how long
the optionee held the stock) capital gain or loss on his or her federal income
tax return for the year in which the sale occurs.

         When an optionee exercises an incentive stock option, the difference
between the fair market value of the stock on the date of exercise and the
exercise price paid results in an adjustment in computing alternative minimum
taxable income for purposes of Sections 55 et seq. of the Code, which may
trigger alternative minimum tax consequences for optionee's. Any alternative
minimum tax that is payable may ultimately be credited against future taxes
owed.

         With respect to nonqualified stock options, there are generally no tax
consequences to the optionee or the Company when the option is granted. Upon
exercise of the option, the optionee will be required to report, on his or her
federal income tax return for the year in which the exercise occurs, an
additional compensation or self-employment income equal to the difference
between the fair market value of the stock at the time of exercise of the option
and the exercise price at which the stock was acquired (the Company will
generally be entitled to a deduction in an equivalent amount). When the stock is
ultimately sold, the transaction will be taxed in the manner described in
subparagraph (b) above for incentive stock options.

 
    PROPOSAL 2: AMENDMENT TO INCREASE SHARES AVAILABLE UNDER THE 1998 STOCK
                                 INCENTIVE PLAN

         The board of directors recommends a vote for approval of the amendment
to the 1998 stock incentive plan

         Unless instructed to the contrary, it is intended that votes be cast
pursuant to the accompanying proxy for the amendment to the 1998 Stock Incentive
Plan ("Plan) to increase the aggregate number of shares which may be issued
under the Plan or subject to issuance under options granted under the Plan from
1,200,000 to 1,400,000 shares.

                                       19

<PAGE>

         As described in the preceding section, in March of 1998 the
Stockholders of the Company adopted the Plan to provide equity incentives to
employees, officers, directors and third parties providing valuable services to
the Company. The Plan provides that the aggregate number of shares, which may be
issued under the Plan or subject to issuance under options granted under the
Plan, shall not exceed 1,200,000 shares. The Compensation Committee of the Board
has periodically approved the issuance of shares and options for shares as
described in the Plan. The Compensation Committee, joined by the other outside
members of the Board (Robert Templin and Stephen R. Blank) commissioned and
reviewed in the fall of 1999 a report on compensation of executives prepared by
the an independent consulting firm based upon compensation provided by
competitive companies. Modifications to base salaries, bonus structures and
stock options of executives have utilized that information. The Compensation
Committee and the Board as a whole has determined that the increase to date and
potential future increases in the number of employees of the Company require an
increase in the maximum number of shares which may be issued under the Plan or
subject to issuance under options granted under the Plan by 200,000 shares to a
new maximum of 1,400,000 shares in order to continue to provide equity
incentives to the participants in the Plan.

         By unanimous resolution the Board of Directors of the Company has
approved, subject to the approval of the Stockholders of the Company, and
recommends that the Stockholders of the Company approve, the amendment of the
Plan to increase the aggregate number of shares which may be issued under the
Plan or subject to issuance under options granted under the Plan from a maximum
of 1,200,000 shares to a new maximum of 1,400,000 shares in all places at which
that maximum is referred to in the Plan; and further has directed, subject to
the approval of the Stockholders of the Company, that the President or any
senior or executive vice president of the Company, by single signature, execute
and deliver all amendments or other documents required to implement this
resolution.

 
              PROPOSAL 3: RATIFICATION OF APPOINTMENT OF AUDITORS

         The Board of Directors recommends a vote "FOR:" the ratification of the
appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as auditors for the Company for 2000.

         Unless instructed to the contrary, it is intended that votes be cast
pursuant to the accompanying proxy for the ratification of the appointment of
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as auditors for the Company for 2000.
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP has audited the accounts for the Company for 1998 and
1999. Representatives of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP are expected to attend the
Meeting and will have an opportunity to make a statement and/or respond to
appropriate questions from stockholders.

                                       20

<PAGE>

         In the event that the ratification of the appointment of auditors is
not made by a majority of the shares entitled to vote thereon, the selection of
other auditors would be considered by the Board of Directors.

                             STOCK PRICE PERFORMANCE

         The following graph depicts the Company's Common Stock price
performance relative to the performance of the Russell 2000 Composite Index and
the Standard & Poor's Lodging-Hotels Index.

                                [GRAPH OMITTED]

                           April 3, 1998      1998            1999             
                           -------------     ------         -------
WestCoast Hosp Corp.          $100.00        $71.67         $ 55.00

         The graph above assumes an investment of $100 in the Company's Common
Stock, the Russell 2000 Composite Index, and the Standard & Poor's
Lodging-Hotels Index, and assumes a reinvestment of all dividends. The Company
has not paid cash dividends on its Common Stock. Note that the Company's Common
Stock price performance on the graph above is not necessarily indicative of
future stock price performance.

                         CHANGE OF CONTROL ARRANGEMENTS

Certain Provisions of Articles and By-Laws Affecting Control

         The By-Laws provide for shareholder action by written consent and the
Articles reserve to the Directors the exclusive right to change the number of
Directors or to fill vacancies on the Board. The Articles also provide for the
Board to be divided into three classes of Directors serving staggered three year
terms. As a result, approximately one-third of the Board will be elected each
year. The purpose and intended effect of the above described provisions in the
Articles and By-Laws are to enhance the continuity and stability of the
Company's management by making it more difficult for Stockholders to remove or
change the incumbent members of the Board. Such provisions, coupled with the

                                       21

<PAGE>

ownership by existing Stockholders of approximately 60% of the Common Stock
following the Offering, could also render the Company more difficult to be
acquired pursuant to an unfriendly acquisition by an outsider by making it more
difficult for such person to obtain control of the Company and replace current
management without the approval of the Board.

Washington Anti-Takeover Statute

         Washington law contains certain provisions that may have the effect of
delaying, deterring or preventing a takeover or change in control of the
Company. Chapter 23B.19 of the Washington Act prohibits the Company, with
certain exceptions, from engaging in certain significant business transactions
with an "acquiring person" (defined as a person who acquires 10% or more of the
Company's voting securities without the prior approval of the Board) for a
period of five years after such acquisition. The prohibited transactions
include, among others, a merger with, disposition of assets to, or issuance or
redemption of stock to or from, the acquiring person, or otherwise allowing the
acquiring person to receive any disproportionate benefit as a shareholder. The
Company may not exempt itself from coverage of this statute.

 
                                 OTHER MATTERS

         The Company knows of no other matters that are likely to be brought
before the Meeting. If, however, other matters that are not now known or
determined come before the Meeting, the persons named in the enclosed proxy or
their substitutes will vote such proxy in accordance with their judgment.

                            PROPOSALS OF STOCKHOLDERS
