Note: When this story was published, it was accurate. However, Marriott Hotels has since opened the Courtyard New York Manhattan/Central Park, which is now the tallest hotel in America.

The original story is below:

The Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, the tallest hotel in the United States, and one of the tallest in the western hemisphere, is located along downtown Detroit’s scenic riverfront overlooking both the city of Detroit and the city of Windsor, located in Ontario, Canada.

The property has recently announced it intends to undergo a massive $30 million renovation project, to begin in February 2014. The 70-floor hotel intends to remain open throughout the year-long project, with just a few floors undergoing reconstruction at a time.

“We’re energized by the current revival of Detroit and excited to be a big part of it by making a $30 million investment in a landmark property that welcomes visitors from around the globe to our amazing city!” brand levitra online said Shonda Johnson, Area General Manager of the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. “Like Detroit, we’re undergoing our own rebirth of an original icon.”

The corporate design team has created a one-of-a-kind look for the Michigan property, and plan to incorporate the city’s vibe and personality into the new, comfortably modern decor theme.

The Detroit Marriott’s makeover is part of Marriott Hotels’ current brand transformation, which includes a new multi-year global marketing campaign called “Travel Brilliantly”
