Inner Circle -- Level 1
The brick-paved Inner Circle is a convenient walkway to reach the many fine stores and restaurants on Level 1.
Glass Circulation Ring -- Level 2
The very best way to visit the retail and office towers on Level 2 is the glass circulation ring that connects workers and visitors to each of the four office towers. Suspended on stainless steel rods from the Ren Cen's ceiling, this 12-foot wide walkway provides for easy navigation along 288 suspended etched glass panels. The distance around the circulation ring is approximately 1/8 mile.
Skywalk to the Millender Center
Just north of the GM Ren Cen is the Millender Center, a mixed-use complex with a 265 room Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, an 1,850-space parking structure, and a fine selection of shops, services and restaurants. The Millender Center is connected to the Ren Cen by a weatherproof skywalk and also has its own stop on the Detroit People Mover system.
Skywalk to the River East Center
Towers 500 and 600 are connected to Tower 200 of the GM Renaissance Center via a pedestrian skywalk. The 10-story multi-use structures feature ground floor shops and services for tenants and visitors. River East also offers a convenient skywalk to the 1,050 covered parking spaces in the Port Atwater Parking Garage.
Tips for First-timers
If this is your first time visiting the Renaissance Center -- welcome! Here are a few helpful tips to make your visit easier:
* Check the parking page for tips on where to park.
* Stop at one of the customer service desks, located in the GM Wintergarden and Jefferson lobby, to pick up a Ren Cen directory.
* Stick to the escalators to get around. They will get you to the retail levels, the hotel and also to the Welcome Desks.
* If you are coming for a business meeting, plan an extra 10-15 minutes to allow time for check-in. Note what tower you'll be visiting and head for the corresponding Welcome Desk on level 2 (towers 100-400). You'll need your ID for check-in and to receive your visitor badge.
