The Courtyard by Marriott is a mid-upscale high-rise Hotel in downtown Detroit, Michigan. It stands next to the similarly-appearing Millender Center Apartments, and is connected to the apartments, the Renaissance Center, Millender Center Detroit People Mover station and the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center via an enclosed Skyway.

The building stands at 333 East Jefferson Avenue. It was built in 1984 and opened in 1985 as the Omni International Hotel. After its run as an Omni, it became a Doubletree hotel and finally when GM purchased the Millender Center complex in the late 1990s it became the Courtyard by Marriott. It has 21 floors, is used as a hotel, and has a parking garage inside. Like the Millender Center, it was designed in the modern architectural style, and uses concrete as its main material.

This building contains the office and retail portion of this complex. It houses 30,000 square feet (3,000 m2) of retail, and 100,000 square feet (10,000 m2) of office space.
