Nice building to look at. Nothing special inside, it actually has an awful vibe about it. It feels vacant and ghosty. A good way to get across the road and onto the people mover.

If you are visiting Detroit a visit along the waterfront is a must. The Renaissance centre has several good restaurants inside and is home to a very nice and moderately priced Marriott. There is ample parking next door which makes it a great place to base your Detroit sports weekend. It's currently going through a bit of modernization and it... More

I was attending a three-day conference at the GM Renaissance Center. The meeting rooms and space worked very well. The center was under major construction, and this fact may have contributed to the difficulty finding your way around the vast area. There are some good restaurants and shops, but the Renaissance Center was horrible to navigate.

We had an hour to kill, and wondered what that huge glass monstrosity was on the People Mover route, so decided to take the free RennCen tour. It was offered at noon and 2pm on weekdays, figured it wouldn't be crowded, but went early anyway. Ended up there were a lot of other tourists in Detroit thinking the same thing... More

They are under construction, so lots of noise and much of the beauty of building was covered. There is some great art and cars inside. Especially the hand painted truck dedicated to the veterans.

I stayed here at the Marriott for three nights for a conference. Like most conference hotels there is no water or free wifi in the rooms but both are available in public areas. The tricky part about staying here is that even with some signage navigating in the building is very difficult. Even after several days I would have to... More

The build in being renovated on the lower floors. If you plan to check it out, check for renovation completion first. We stayed for a hockey game so it was okay!

Renaissance is the photo representation of Detroit, tons a things going on, movies, hotel, shops, banks, food, businesses, not to mention General Motors headquarters. If you live in the Renaissance you probably dont need to come out for anything. View of Detroit River, Hart Plaza and Canada. Best seat in house during fireworks

I went on the GM tour offered by Pure Detroit on Friday at 12pm. They have the tour M-F 12pm and 2pm. The Pure Detroit office is located in Tower 400 on the second level. The tour was about an hour and it was GREAT! The view from the 72nd floor was AWESOME, especially for someone like me, who recognizes... More
