The RenCenter has a welcoming entry from the People Mover, and a gorgeous riverfront walkway. In between is an indoor mall and set of walkways designed to confuse. We've been to the tip of Newfoundland, on trails in the Great Smoky Mountains and Yosemite and the White Mountains of New Hampshire, in the woods of Vancouver Island British Columbia. And... More

You can't miss the GM building when you are in Detroit. It is a pretty iconic building and draws you to it for sure. It is in an easy location to get to and is right along the water so it really is worth visiting. They have some good information in the bottom lobby and they have a great view... More

Stayed here during the Detroit Jazz Festival. Rooms were great, Eric who checked us in was excellent, wish I could say the same for all of their staff. As they say, never use a glass that's not enclosed in a wrapper. After cleaning one day went to room and a glass that I happened to use to hold my toothbrush... More

I was wowed on this tour. Great tour guide (Laurie) she was wonderful. Viewed the GM building history & the scenic view from 79th floor was breath taking. This is a free tour that you need to take. Beautiful building with a renovation in progress but we'll worth your time. The tours are Monday-Friday twice a day check with the... More

Stayed at the Marriott and got lost more times than I cared for. Hard to believe a building that has been open for as long as it has can't help guests find themselves around with decent signage...go figure.

this was a fast pace tour of the entire complex. History of the building and notes of changes and improvements. Found it very interesting. Tour included Wintergarden and up to the 72 floor in a glass elevator! The views were spectacular. If you are traveling with older folks this may not too fast pace for them. We sometimes had difficulty... More

I was there last year for a convention called Youmacon 2015. And absolutely loved being at the GM Center! It's such an excellent venue to put a convention where you can meet your favourite anime stars in the industry. Plus on the upside there is a really good food court downstairs at the bottom floor. All your favourite restaurants are... More

A nice place to stop by and have lunch in the food court while doing the River Walk. A place you can take a break from the hot summer or cold winter day.

We were in Detroit for ballgames. My son plays Pokemon Go and said the GM Renaissance Center was supposed to be a on spot for finding pokemon. We went over and to my amazement there must have been a hundred people walking around playing Go. We spent 2 hours there and my son captured over 100 pokemon including 3 he... More
