This year we are partnering with Detroit Marriott - Renaissance Center Hotel and Huntington Place Convention Center for RailsConf 2024. Discover Detroit's diverse art scene, from iconic museums and lively street art to groovy tunes from Motown’s finest. Immerse yourself in the city's cultural legacy at Eastern Market, the vibrant hub capturing Detroit's unique spirit.
Located in downtown Detroit, this hotel is located on the RiverWalk and next to the Hart Plaza. It features stunning views of the Detroit River and Canada. The Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center is located on the Detroit "People Mover" public transportation line and just 1 mile from Detroit Comerica Park.
Huntington Place is home to unsurpassed views of the city, as it is located on the Detroit riverfront. It is within walking distance of more than 40 new businesses and restaurants. In addition to this, The People Mover and the new QLine connect visitors with other areas of the city.
Huntington Place is also home to one of the larger MoGo stations, Detroit’s newest bike share program.
Huntington Place is LEED Gold and EIC ASTM/APEX certified facility and prioritizes sustainability in all day-to-day and event operations. It is the only convention center to ever receive the US Green Buildings Council Leadership Award for Building Performance.
