Yeah, the LAX hilton is best. That or the LAX Airport Marriott. That's a super nice one too. But the LAX Hilton has some views of the airport from there. Also, the LAX Crown Plaza has great views of 25L/R and of the United commuter ramp. See?

I stayed in the Hilton and Westin. Both of them are very nice but as hotel I would prefer the Westin, it is better. Spotting isn't that cool because of the dark windows but watching planes, both are nice.
Better go to In'n'Out Burgers, it's much better

The Thai hotel is now the Courtyard Marriott- between the Radisson and Crowne Plaza.
As for the best view, the top floor of the Furama (tower building) can't be beat- and you're not stuck on Century Boulevard. At Furama you can at least walk outside at night as it's in a residential area and there are plenty of restaurants.

I'm sure that the Hilton or the Marriott have much better views (and rooms ), but I've stayed at the Hampton Inn (runways 25) and the Sheraton Four Points (runways 24), and both have very good views of the final approach. You can't really see them touching down, but it's all good until just before that. Great arrivals during the morning by the way, with lots of 747s. Qantas, Cathay, Japan, ANA, Air New Zealand...
