Where to Stay at the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix to See the Indycar Races

We have personally stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott and the GM Renaissance Center several times. We like to stay at these hotels as they are in a safer location, very close to Hart Plaza, The Fist, Guardian Building and the Detroit Riverwalk. 

Both hotels have safer parking in garages with attendants/fees so your vehicle is not on the street.


Courtyard by Marriott

Courtyard by Marriott - 333 E Jefferson, Detroit, MI 48226

Check prices at the Courtyard by Marriott

GM Renaissance Center


GM Renaissance Center - 400 Renaissance Center, Detroit, MI

The GM Renaissance Center isn't just a hotel, it is home to several restaurants, shops and businesses. There is a fast food court on the lower level and you can shop at the GM Store and see several GM vehicles on display.
