What are some nice hotels near airports that provide good views of the terminal/tarmac/aircraft movements?
Probably the best one I've been too is the Grand Hyatt at DFW, it had great views of the airport operations, the other great one being the Embassy Suites in South San Francisco (Embassy Suites being my favorite hotels )
What are your favorites?

The Hyatt at PIT has some decent views. If you stay on the north end, you have a good view of 10L/ 28R. If your on the east side, good views of the terminal and some runway action. A bit pricey though.

Embassy Suites-North at LAX is just abeam the east end (normally approach end) of 24L/R (about 1 mile east of threshold). Top floor is about eye-level with incoming traffic. Make sure to get room facing north. All rooms have small balconies.
Otherwise the hotel is not just great - a little noisy with families and getting a little run down. Nice evening free cocktails though.

Radisson LAX has awesome views from the north side of the hotel. Its a pretty nice place with a perfect location if you are spending the night in L.A. for a flight the following day. I really enjoyed my stay. Really close to the In N Out Burger too.
Kempinski Hotel Munich Airport is probably the best airport hotel that I have ever stayed at. The location is ideal, pretty much right at T2 and really close to T1. Great service, with awesome rooms.

Quoting SiouxATC (Reply 13): Radisson LAX has awesome views from the north side of the hotel.
Oh, I forgot about this one. I second SiouxATC's emotion here......great hotel and if you go to the bar on the
roof, they have an outside area to .......you guessed it....suck on your Budweiser and watch the pretty
planes come and go.
