The Hampton by Hilton opened April 25, 2013, so everything is fresh, bright, and up-to-date. The hotel is about a 10 minute ride from Schiphol, depending on traffic in the area. The hotel provides a free shuttle bus from Schiphol; there's warning of a 7.50euro charge for the return trip; I don't know about that as I am writing this from my room here.
The Hampton is in a business park, surrounded by office buildings. So the plan is probably to get people doing business with companies located here as well as Schiphol travelers. The rooms are very nice, although soundproofing could be better. Opening rates are attractive as the hotel builds business. Room rates include a buffet breakfast as is the custom with Hampton Inns in the USA.
There is a very nice public park that borders the office buildings with a good higher-end restaurant, l'Hirondelle. Otherwise, there are few restaurants within walking distance of the Hampton (more may be open during office building hours). One could go back to the airport and take the train to Amsterdam Centraal to explore or dine.
Internet connection seems to be good and at no additional charge (a real plus). Overall, the new Hampton by Hilton is a nice place to stay.
