Prospectus Supplement

(To Prospectus dated April 22, 2013)

Host Hotels & Resorts, I nc.

37,209,303 Shares of Common Stock


Our operating partnership, Host Hotels & Resorts, L.P. (Host L.P.), of which we are the sole general partner and in which we own approximately 99% of the partnership interests, issued and sold $400,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 2.50% Exchangeable Senior Debentures due 2029 (which we refer to as the 2009 debentures) in a private transaction on December 22, 2009. Under certain circumstances, we may issue shares of our common stock upon the exchange of the 2009 debentures. In such circumstances, the recipients of such common stock, whom we refer to as the selling stockholders, may use this prospectus supplement, together with the underlying prospectus, to resell from time to time the shares of our common stock that we may issue to them upon the exchange of the 2009 debentures. Additional selling stockholders may be named by future prospectus supplements.

The registration of the shares of our common stock covered by this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus does not necessarily mean that any of the selling stockholders will exchange their 2009 debentures, that upon any exchange of the 2009 debentures we will elect, in our sole and absolute discretion, to exchange some or all of the 2009 debentures for shares of our common stock rather than cash, or that any shares of our common stock received upon exchange of the 2009 debentures will be sold by the selling stockholders.

We will receive no proceeds from any issuance of shares of our common stock to the selling stockholders upon exchange of 2009 debentures or from any sale of such shares by the selling stockholders, but we have agreed to pay certain registration expenses relating to such shares of our common stock. The selling stockholders from time to time may offer and sell the shares held by them directly or through agents or broker-dealers on terms to be determined at the time of sale, as described in more detail in the prospectus supplement dated April 22, 2013. See Plan of Distribution.
