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...

We like to visit & stay here! There's a Marriott located at this location! I recommend the Coach Insignia for dinner & coffee beanery for your breakfast coffee. The people mover also stops and picks up from this location. There are also several shops in this building from clothing stores, convenient stores to an icecream parlor! There also great view...

Beautiful structure--home to over 16,000 office workers during the week. Stunning atrium, overlooking the Detroit River. Home to General Motors. Outside on the Riverwalk, perfect for strolling, cycling. Fountains in the summer. Inside the RenCen, some excellent restaurants, such as Andiamo and Joe Muer's. A Starbucks is open on the weekend, with seating overlooking the gleaming new GM cars on... More

Had lunch today in food court of RenCen. Despite living in Michigan for six or seven years had never been here before. I found the building complex a rabbit warren of hallways and passageways. It was a long walk to food, which with few exceptions was standard fast food fare. I should probably stopped for Chinese halfway into the complex.... More

Love the GM cars on display. And it looks so neat seeing them on display in the front of the building in the glass area.

I stopped here b/c I was on the people mover, and wanted to find some coffee without going outside. Sadly, everything was pretty much closed, but they did have nice restrooms. I want to go back during the week, but I'm glad that I looked around. The design can be confusing, but if you're already milling around, it's neat. It... More

This Marriott connected to the Ren Cen may not be the most deluxe hotel in the area but it is a convenient place to stay. Ren Cen has it all and you don't have to leave the building when it is zero degrees. The restaurants here are good...the fast food is good...there is a convenience store.....confusing at first to get... More
