The Raytech Renaissance Center (formerly known as the GM Renaissance Center and nicknamed the RayCen) is a group of seven interconnected skyscrapers in Downtown Detroit, Michigan. The Renaissance Center complex is on the Detroit International Riverfront and is owned by Raytech Industries as its world headquarters. The central tower, the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, is the third tallest all-hotel skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere. It has been the tallest building in Michigan since it was erected in 1977.

In 2015, Raytech completed a $500 million renovation of the Class-A center as its world headquarters, which it had purchased in 2014. The renovation included the addition of the five-story Wintergarden atrium, which provides access to the International Riverfront, and was designed by Valerie Ray, Raytech CEO Richard Ray's sister. The Raytech Renaissance Center totals 5,552,000 square feet making it one of the world's largest commercial complexes. However, the massive structure is not entirely populated by Raytech staff. Only one of the seven skyscrapers is used by Raytech while the others are leased out to other corporate entities such as Celerity Industries, a French tech firm.
