Plus the session costs extra on top of the hotel room. I don’t really see the point, you’d be just as good staying in any other hotel and booking time at a place like Flight Experience https://flightexperience.com/

There's tons of fun artifacts on display. There is an actual Lockheed Super Constellation out on the tarmac which now serves as a cocktail lounge. The rooftop bar/pool offer great views of planes on the tarmac, and almost all of the runways, and is open to all. You can reserve a room that has these views if you wish to stay over.

Having been to St Maarten on many occasions by cruise ships I don't totally agree with your comments as in ''greatest hotel room ever for aviation geeks''.
Sure you get a great view of the aircraft approaching or departing SXM but it's not really close up like some hotel rooms at airports around the world where the action is a lot closer than the visiting cruise ships at St Maarten or other airports for that matter where cruise ships are berthed nearby.
The Renaissance Hotel at London Heathrow Airport for example has absolutely excellent views of the the airport and is extremely close to the airport's northern runway and in my my opinion a far greater hotel room for aviation geeks than a cruise ship berthed at St Maarten.
