I stayed at the Embassy Suites at LAX. I think there are two of them. I don't know which I was at but I was on the north side of the building with a balcony, and through the windows, saw the aircraft on final to the two north runways. It was great and the aircraft were really close to the building...
I didn't choose to stay there. The party that I was with made the arrangements and I really didn't have a say. It's a nice place. Complimentary breakfast down in the atrium each morning, great suites...

If I am at LAX I am always stay at the Hacienda Hotel because it is very cheap and it offers a lot of comfort, a very good bar, and the best breakfast at LAX. Unfortunately you can not spot planes from there but they offer a shuttle bus to LAX for free.

I have stayed at the Hilton, the Marriott, and the Sheraton. My favorite has to be the Marriott. The views of planes coming in can be great. Also, the pool at the Marriott has a swim-up bar... sort of a nice 70's feel.

I liked the Hilton. Had a huge corner room on a floor in the teens for $88 in December. Super nice place with super friendly staff. Bad part is that you have to pay to park. I did like the TV chanell that lists all flights in/out of LAX also get to hear some neat call signs on the scanner when you watch TV.

There is no better place than a spa suite at Westin LAX on Century Blvd. Each suite has its own jacuzzi on a small private balcony. You get to soak in the warm water while watching the planes fly by. You'll be naked, but the people in the planes can't see that far.(beside, you're in the water) Their room service menu is nice. Order some before you go in the jacuzzi.
I stayed there a couple of times and always found it hard to get out of the water. (until my skin are all wrinkled)

The last time I was at LAX I stayed at the Radisson, 8th floor, south side. Had a great view of terminals 7 and 8 and all the action on the south side. I even walked about five minutes down the road from the hotel and watched planes landing on the north side scream over my head. All this for $68/night.
