Good hotels for plane-spotting (SEA - YVR)

Asides from Fairmont YVR (too expensive, already stayed many times) and HGI Mukilteo (would like something a bit nicer), which hotels are great for plane-spotting in the SEA-YVR corridor?
Would like a hotel where at least half the rooms have views of planes taking off / landing, with the planes close enough so that you can make out which airline it is.
Ideally, also a nice hotel (Hilton/Doubletree level or better, not a motel or budget place like Hampton/HIE).

I've stayed at Westin YVR, but the runways are way too far.
Runway views are also a bit too obstructed from Doubletree SEA, although it's possible I didn't stay at a high enough floor.

LAX seems to be blessed with several hotels that are great for plane-spotting... Hyatt, Crowne Plaza, etc.
If there's anything comparable up by SEA/YVR, I'd like to know.

The Crown Plaza across the street from the airport is the tallest hotel at SeaTac and may offer some runway views from a top floor. The Coast Gateway is actually on the airport property....closest to the runways.... and may offer a view from a top floor as well.
