The view from top is the building best asset. Not only a top view of Detroit, but you get to see Windsor, Lake St. Clair, and the river. You have to eat there to get to see it. This is the drawback, but the view is worth it.

I think the outside of the building is pretty cool. The inside has some cool lobbys and a bunch of GM cars. I would buy a GM car. The coveted up ignition switch deaths so why support a company like them.

What's good for GM is good for the country!! That used to be the saying. Come visit their world headquarters. Take comfortable shoes you will get lost in its endless circles, but you will see all the cars in their lineup and have numerous places to eat. I like Joe Meur's, or at the opposite end of the budget, the... More

Entering the building is problematic. Once You are inside the lobby, You are greeted by numerous concrete pillars, which sweep into all directions. You might get lost, which walking along the main floor, but at least You will feel safe here!

The RenCen is a gem in the midst of the city. It gives you a nice view of the Detroit River and Canada. The cars on display is amazing. However, getting around it is really quite confusing. The top floor gives a great view of the city but access is limited to people who will dine at the place which... More

A grand and spacious complex with beautiful cars on display. The glass ceilings and large windows were magnificent with lots of light for great photography if you're into that. There not many people inside and most of the eateries were closed -not sure if this was only because it was a weekend. Marriott Hotel though was teeming with activity next... More
