We went for a conference and were very surprised at some of the extraordinary restaurants and buildings. The Renaissance Center/Marriott is something unique.

Detroit's downtown has been rejuvinated, and is beautiful. You can walk or drive through the area and see beautiful, renovated buildings. Do not go too far away from the center, as the immediate surrounding areas are "ruins" and may not be safe - certainly not...More
