When you land at AMS just get your bags, run outside and the free hotel shuttle should be only minutes away. Once you arrive at the hotel the staff is friendly, helpful and the hotel seems fairly new and very clean. The room was a decent size for a European hotel and the bed is pretty comfy. The only real problems with this hotel are: No gym. If you like to get in a workout while on the road this is a problem. The temperature while i was here never got above freezing so going for a run outside is not an option. The other thing was the lack of good restaurants/pubs within an easy walk. I suggest you take the bus or a cab and head to Haarlem. Its only about 15 minutes away and is a beautiful city with lots of great restaurants and bars. I personally recommend the Polo Bar for drinks and Cafe de Linde for dinner.
If you want to take the shuttle back to the airport be sure to sign-up for a slot the night before you leave. There is also a 7.50 euro charge for return to the airport. There is also a free breakfast at the hotel but don't expect too much. Cereal, cold cuts, bread and drinks pretty much sums it up.
