Don't know whether it's any good, but the Nugget Hotel at RNO looks promising:

There is an amazing Hilton right in the center of DFW, we stayed there the night, no matter where in the hotel you are you get stunning views of the whole airport.

Our room was looking out over the AA terminal, I have no idea which one though!!!  cheerful   silly

Unless it has changed ownership recently, I believe this hotel is actually a Hyatt. Nevertheless I have stayed there also a few years ago and it indeed does have some great views, especially of the gate areas.

Yeah it's a Hyatt, also the Luxor in Vegas, although like the Maho Beach Resort it's not exactly an airport hotel.

Hong Kong Regal.. isn't excellent.. a lot of the low rise Airport administrative buildings block some of the views. esp. landing on 7L or 7R forogot..

but back int he Kai Tak days.. Regal there was excellent as well as any other building around there hahaha
