I enjoyed my stay there. Pros: staffs are very welcoming. Room is spacious with lake view. Lounge food is good. Great location. Cons: Facilities are no longer new. Breakfast venue is overcrowded. I think it is still a good choice if you travel to Lake Biwa. Compared with similar level Marriott hotel in Japan, i would say Marriott Shuzenji does a better job.

Need a nice quiet, soothing and calm place for a quick getaway, look no further because Lake Biwa Marriott is your desired destination. Only a 30 minute drive from the hustling and bustling city of Kyoto, this hotel is a perfect place to truly relax and enjoy the beautiful lakeside scenery of Lake Biwa. Indulge yourself in the many activities at the hotel property like the 24 fitness center, basketball gymnasium which also offers shoes for wear, badminton nets and table tennis, tennis courts and golf driving range located right outside the hotel, a cycling shop and a state of the art planetarium that offers at least 3 different kinds of shows throughout several time blocks of the day. If you need to melt away your stress then take a dip at the onsen and dry sauna conveniently located in the hotel’s sport center. Need the kids entertained, then bring them along to the hotel kids room where they could run around and do what kids do. The food and service of the restaurant atop the 12th floor was excellent as usual but the panoramic view of Lake Biwa was simply breathtaking. The rooms and amenities of the hotel were up with the usual Marriott Bonvoy hotels standards. Whether you are traveling alone, or with a special someone, or even the whole family and the dog, then Lake Biwa Marriott is the perfect getaway!
