I'm so confused!!

Will be arriving from LAX at Schiphol in a week and need a taxi to Hotel Pulitzer. I do not want to take the bus or train.

I have read the cost is about 40 Euros. Taxi2airport quoted 32 Euros but I have to meet them at the Sheraton. For you seasoned travelers out there can I just select a taxi from the queue? I'm not worried about a few Euros after 14 hours of flying.

Thanks!!

Indeed expect to pay around E. 40,- if you pick a cab at the airport. Be aware that in season you might have to queue.
The Sheraton is next to the airport, but easy to reach through a corridor going to the parkinggarage.

The taxi queue at Schiphol moves very quickly and the quality of the cars is top class. When I visit Amsterdam and only have a short journey to one of the business parks just alongside Schiphol, I get a pre booked taxi which collects me from the Sheraton hotel. Easy to find.
The Pulizter Hotel is a great pick! Love it! Especially the ramble to breakfast.
