This is a must do. We parked near Greektown for a small fee, had a nice lunch then walked over to GM. It is under some renovation now but is still very ultramodern in design.

What a mistake. The Ren Cen sits standoffish, all on its own, across Jefferson from the City Center. It's four identical towers are difficult to differentiate unless you have a great sense of direction. Not a fan...never was.

Great interior designs with wide and high sweeping open spaces. It's a quick visit with lots of great photo opportunities. It's right near other important landmarks like Hart Plaza and Joe Louis Monument.

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.
