From journal Father & Son Trip to the Northeast Part 2

The Renaissance Center, also known as the RenCen, the Tinsel Towers, or The Tubes, consists of four round towers around a central, round, core. The Marriott is located in the core. Since the building is round, the rooms are wedge-shaped, and surprisingly small. The view is dependent on which direction your room faces: looking south, you get a nice view of the Detroit River and neighboring Windsor, Ontario. Looking north, you get to see the back of the GM sign and the surrounding office towers.
Standard amenities came with the room. The shampoo and lotion was from Neutrogena, which I thought was a nice touch. The desk was a two part desk that could be configured into an L shape. The desk had a good lamp with a data port in the base. There was a comfortable lounge chair with a footstool, but no reading lamp. Sigh.
The front desk staff was friendly. When I explained that my seminar was not going to adjourn until after the noon checkout time, they reminded me that I could ask for a later
checkout time. If there was a concierge, I did not see him. A copy of USA Today,
along with my bill, was under my door before 5:00 am.
If you are doing business with General Motors at the RenCen, this Marriott, or the Marriott Courtyard in the adjoining Millender Center, are probably your best choices. Parking for both hotels is in the Millender Center parking garage.
