We stopped there while attending a concert close by. Wow! What a terrific building. The restaurants were fabulous. The views were stellar. Home of GM, the automobile company. The skyline of Detroit wouldn’t be the same without it......

This is a must do. We parked near Greektown for a small fee, had a nice lunch then walked over to GM. It is under some renovation now but is still very ultramodern in design.

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.
