We made the mistake of going here on a Sunday afternoon. NothinG was open. The restaurant on the 73rd floor was closed. The building is very difficult to navigate, and we got lost several times. Our experience may have been better on a week day, but don't go on a Sunday!

We actually went here because we were on our way to the Riverwalk and had to use the restroom. WOW we were surprised. Being able to walk around the facility and view the cars was good. But the highlight was the city replica! I'm still trying to figure out how they get cars inside the open area at the front... More

My husband booked us a room at the Marriott, located in the Ren Cen for our 11 year anniversary. We dined at Joe Muir's on the first floor and then caught the people mover to Greek Town. The Ren Cen is definitely a must see if you are coming to Detroit. The view of the River and Canada is awesome... More

Good walking around and seeing the GM cars, having a snack, or catching the people mover. Kind of surprised that there was not any shopping in there.
