Definitely an impressive sight!

The Ren Cen is really an incredible and beautiful building. The architecture is stunning, the views are magnificent, and exploring here is a great way to spend a couple hours.

It seems to be one of the only places in Detroit that looks good. I like to go there and go to the river walk, see the GM cars, and is very easy to park and get to the people mover.

We did the free tour (they run them at 12pm and 2pm) and it took about an hour and our tour guide was very informative. This place is like a little city! There is surprisingly a lot of stuff to do there. There are banks, places to eat, a hotel shops and even a movie theatre! On the tour you... More

It has many choices for lunch but it is a little pricey. The building looks great but it takes some time to navigate your way around which is crucial at lunch time. It is not an everyday lunch spot you will get tired of the same choices.

This is a big place and it can be confusing. I was meeting a friend and it's important to let them know what level you are on. You might need a map for this place, it would help, but there is so much to check out. There is shopping and restaurants/bars and the Riverwalk is right out back. I didn't... More

I have been going to the Ren Cen since it was being built, and I still enjoy it. It is a great place to walk, cool in the summer, and warm (with no ice) in the winter. The tour is free and well worth doing especially for the view from the top. The views of the city are wonderful all... More

How can you miss this impressive building! It stands out in Detroit's downtown. It is grand and magnificent on the river. I visited during the afternoon at sunset and witnessed how the sun reflected on the side of the building. It was a gorgeous array of colors. Truly a Detroit Landmark

...architecture of the last century. Lot's of space and thousands of ways to get from a to b - you can get lost in there... Worth a visit - best use the DPM ( Dezroit People Mover) a small train to take you through downtown Detroit to get there...
