You would have to have the highest floor possible with a North/North east facing window, although best you will probably see from the hotel's location is the final approach to 27R. Most of the view of the airfield is blocked out by T4. The best hotel for views of the airport is the Renaissance. It has fantastic views of 27L/09R and Terminal 1 and the top end of T3. They even have have special spotter rooms/rates that are availiable on w/ends.
Hope this helps.

Note that the top floor is their exec floor, so you will need to pay more to be there. Also, they have inward and outward facing rooms. Avoid the inwards as you get a perfect view of the restaurant. Note that the windows are pretty small, but you can get a decent view of the southerly runway as well as the tails of the exec jets parked at the MetroJet compund (if that is what it is called these days).
