82  /  the tasting panel  /  march 2017 Fred Dame: I look out the window here at the pounding surf on Billionaire's Beach. What a magnificent view! Laurie Sutton: It sure is! And the beachfront here is private for our guests. We provide full beach service inclusive of wine and cocktails. How long has it been here? The hotel was built in 1989 by the original owners. David Geffen bought the property in 2006, and our current owners acquired it in 2016—the most expensive price-per-key purchase in California.
