No matter what part of the building you are in it is beautiful. The view of the river is amazing. There is so many things to look at and see, there are a few fast food and there is a sit down restaurant as well....More

Impressive main entry and main hall. We loved the north hall and car displays. If you walk the center building, you will notice and admire the addition of "gear" or "motor" lines to the building. Great visit, there will be more shops.

Beautiful spacious building with many different tourist levels. A bit confusing the message board maps weren't always assessable. Could get lost pretty easily.

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.
