The RenCen is a great place to visit. Great shops & restaurants! The Wintergarden is beautiful with a great view of the river. It's really happening in the summer with lots of free concerts!

Building is very nice with places to eat and great views. The GM cars all around add nice feeling and make it a cool stop for car lovers and kids alike!

My family and I were at the Marriott for an overnight, and the Renaissance Center was a great place to be. The directions directing you aground were a little confusing and when we were there one of the major attractions was closed for construction. Other than that it's a nice place.

At first glance it's rather ugly as it's for the most part plain concrete. But once you start going around, it all comes together for it's very own unique look. Unfortunately the car exhibit (which I am told is the main attraction) was closed. Overall worth a visit but without the car exhibit don't come from too far P.S. If... More

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
