DANA POINT, Calif. -A Southern California resort where American International Group Inc. sponsored a luxury retreat after receiving federal bailout money has been seized by Citigroup.

The owners of the St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point were in default on a $70 million loan from a real estate unit of Citigroup Inc., resulting in the takeover.

Citigroup said last month it would sell the property at a foreclosure auction. However, when no bidders came forward, the bank and the owners agreed to let Citigroup take ownership without that formal step.

The 400-room hotel will continue to operate as a St. Regis. It became a symbol of corporate excess last year when AIG spent some $440,000 on a posh retreat for its executives.
