It's my favorite place to stay when I'm in town for a Red Wings game, short walk to the Joe, always clean, friendly staff and the breakfast is fantastic!

We took the tour of the Renaissance Center (which are free) and got to take a glass elevator ride to the 72nd floor and got a 360deg view of the city. The tour is the only way to go to the top unless you want to pay $45 per person to eat at Coach Insignia. The building itself has many... More

We visited the GM Renaissance Center for about 2 hours and it still wasn't enough! There were so many hightlights in the tour. I liked the miniature Detroit display and going up the Central Tower. We saw an excellent view of Detroit and tour the rooftop restaurant, Coach Insignia. During the tour the tour guide was very informative and patient.... More

We only visited, didn't stay in the GM Renaissance Center. They give free tours, and we took one on monday at noon. The building is very remarkable. It is definitely worth a visit. The highlight of the tour is that they take you out to a 360deg. lookout on the 72nd floor. That alone was worth it. Our tour guide... More

Went on the tour of this centre and the tour guide was absolutely amazing, what a memory. The views were to die for, and it was great to have the guide point out the various landmarks and their background. We also enjoyed seeing the cars of the year and various other motor exhibits. An amazing centre.

We rode the elevator up to the 72nd floor, what an incredible view, everyone very friendly. There's a restaurant up there, not quite sure the name, we just did some cocktails while we were there and enjoyed the view!

the place is very good. There are some cars that we can take pictures, a lot of restaurants and the Marriot hotel. There are cafeterias and most of the tours starts there. There are a DPM (detroit people move) station there and we can go to other places from there I strongly recomend the visit.

I think this is one of the tallest hotels in the country. It was huge, which made it somewhat confusing to get around in, but overall I was fine. Very clean & modern & the staff was friendly but I was highly impressed with my room. It was nice, simple & clean, but nothing special. A plus was it is... More

Looking for free things to do? Well this tour is it. It was supposed to be a 45 minutes tour, but 1 hour and 10 minutes later it was still going strong. I have no complaints because I got my money's worth...oh, I forgot it was free. My guide was very knowledgeable is the reason why our tour lasted so... More

If you have spent or are planning on spending any time in downtown Detroit you must visit the Ren Cen. The food and shops are great, the view of the river and Canada is truly amazing.
