I haven't been in a lot of US airports, but I found BWI and RDU (the new terminal) pretty nice and easy to navigate through. TPA and MCO not bad either... Pretty bad was Deltas international arrival concourse at JFK.

IAD (hard to beat the classic architecture of Saarinen)
DTW (the McNamara terminal and its wonderful views)
MSN (it has lots of neat architectural details, like the small stained glass windows in the "Prairie Style")
PWM (for a small city, what a neat terminal--and very appropriate for its location, too)
My least favorites:
GEG (although I haven't been there in a few years and heard it's had some sort of renovation; hopefully it's less claustrophobic and threadbare now)

DTW hands-down for me, and 've always liked SNA. LAX is pretty damn ugly if you ask me, it rivals LGA! Also CDG T1, there should be a law against ugly terminals at world-class airports...
My top 3:
1. DTW: McNamara Terminal and North Terminal. Need I say more?
2. IAH Terminal E: I like the big windows and high ceilings
3. SNA: Again high ceilings, but below IAH because I'm not a huge fan of the overall color scheme.
Worst 3: (absolute worst is first)
1. LGA: The PANYNJ bus terminal is on par with this airport...
2. LAX: Still in the 60's
3. CDG T1: Not the ugliest terminal in the world, but totally unfitting for an airport of CDG and a beautiful city like Paris.
For small airports, I love the outdoors theme at TVC.
There's nothing like the smell of Jet-A in the morning. It smells like... VICTORY!!!

Quoting 727tiger (Reply 19): I think parts of HON look great; other parts have not aged well in the tropical breezes.
If you are referring to Honolulu, I think you mean HNL. The airport code HON applies to Huron, South Dakota which may be a very lovely destination but probably is lacking in tropical breezes (at least most times of the year).
