This group of seven interconnected skyscrapers contains the tallest building in Michigan and is considered a symbol of Detroit. The entire complex is owned by General Motors as its headquarters. The central tower, called the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, was built as the tallest hotel in the world, rising 73 stories at 727 feet, but taller hotels have been constructed in recent years in cities such as Dubai, so it has to settle for the title as tallest all-hotel skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere. It also features the world's largest rooftop restaurant, Coach Insignia. Free tours of the complex are offered Monday thru Saturday at 10AM, noon, 2PM, and 4PM. Highlights of the tour include: the GM Wintergraden, a tropical atrium overlooking the Detroit River; GMnext Showroom, a display of classic and concept cars; "Borealis" Glass Sculpture, the tallest vertical glass sculpture in the world; Riverfront Plaza and Promenade; and a glass elevator ride to the 72nd floor, which offers great views that extend 30 miles (48 km) in all directions. The Renaissance Center also has its own station on the People Mover, located in Tower 200 on level 2.
