We traveled to see the whole Tour. But they told us the building was on renivation and they did a limited and quick Tour. They should mention this in their website so visitors plan the visit accordingly. Building is huge and amazing

The showroom is being remodeled and from what we heard, for the first time ever. Good thing we aren't big car people otherwise, what a disappointment. Oh, and the restaurant at the top is also being remodeled. No elevator ride up and no view. It...More

Unfortunately we couldn't take elevator to scenic view on tour...access denied after restaurant closed. The stage with new cars was also closed during renovations. Call before taking tour. Good tour guide.

The Ren Cen is a great place to stay when in downtown Detroit or at a conference/event at COBO. The Ren Cen offers classy rooms, convenient amenities, and location close to COBO. If the weather is agreeable, it's a nice walk to COBO, or take...More

The first thing you see when you get to the riverfront. Towers over all of the other buildings. Glass panels surround the towers. General Motors moved their HQ there about 10 yrs ago. Still a magnificent structure with a rich history of superstars staying in...More

I do freelance work here, and visit at least once a month. The views from offices and restaurants are great; there is one decent restaurant, the Granite City. The inside of the RenCen is ugly and is remarkable for the quantity of wasted space it...More

Is Saturday a good time to visit? I was worried that the building will be dead on Saturday, but it looks like most store are open.

It's fine but the lounge may not be open if you have privileges. Have fun and check out Greektown, worth the walk, might want to cab it at night.
I was thinking about renting a room tonight at the rencen but I'm concerned about where we would see the fireworks I don't think we will have a room with a river view and I called and they said they don't have a place for guests to see them wed have to try to go out on Jefferson if Detroit police would let us past the ropes. Any suggestions? A person that would be coming has trouble walking and is afraid of going out in the crowd in hart plaza
