We were in Tahoe for a short getaway, and chose this hotel (based on TripAdvisor recommendations) because we wanted a kitchenette. We found ourselves in a well-appointed one-bedroom apartment. The bathroom was spacious, and had the large jacuzzi we'd requested. The kitchen was more than just a kitchenette; it was a fully functional apartment kitchen. There were separate thermostats for the living room and bedroom. It didn't have a view, but overlooked the pool, which was okay.
The wi-fi was free and stable. (This is crucial for me.)
The staff were friendly and helpful, and the location convenient. The large Raley's grocery is just across the way; it's convenient to the main roads, and not far from the lake. The setting is very urban (walking distance to casinos), but that's fine at night. In the day, we drove to the lake anyway and didn't stay in the room.
The only thing we really disliked was the parking situation. I knew we'd pay $26 per day. What I hadn't known is that it's only valet parking. You have no access to the car. If you want something from it, the valet has to fetch it or fetch the car. You don't have to give a tip each time, but we felt it was only fair; we quickly ran out of small notes. They're nice about it, but it's still a nuisance. I underestimated how annoying it would become. Eventually, we just left the car in the market parking lot across the road, and only brought it in for the night (and paid the $26 anyway).
I would hope Marriott would re-think this compulsory valet parking. I had a similar issue with their Walnut Creek property earlier this year, but there I was able to access the car myself so it bothered me less.
