Sunrises in OCMD

Oceanfront Hotel Room

The sun rises in the east and sets in the west, so naturally, the beautiful Ocean City sun rises over the Atlantic ocean. This is important to consider when picking out your hotel room. The Grand Hotel offers a king/queen jetted tub room with an oceanfront view or a direct oceanfront room with two comfortable queen beds. These luxury rooms all have a private balcony for a front-row seat at magnificent sunrises over the ocean. 

Dine With Ocean Views

All six of the Grand Hotel’s onsite dining venues have access to the beautiful views of the town. Sip your coffee from Java Beach Cafe on the Boardwalk and wake up with the sun. The Grand Terrace restaurant is located on the 6th floor with an incredible panoramic view that stretches from Assawoman Bay to downtown Ocean City, all without leaving the building!

On the Beach & Boardwalk

Enjoy an early bird stroll just outside your hotel room on the Boardwalk or beach. At the Grand Hotel, you’re only steps away from the beach and the best sunrise view of all. And—you can crawl right back to bed after you catch the views for a nap!
