My 11 yo daughter and I will be flying back to the States from Amsterdam in April. We'll only have a half day in Amsterdam, arriving by train from Germany around mid-day Thursday, leaving for the first leg of our US-bound trip at 11 a.m. Friday.
I'm trying to decide between two options:
1. Get a hotel near the airport, drop off our luggage and head into the city for the evening, so that our Friday morning departure is simpler.
2. Get a hotel in the city to have more time touring on Thursday afternoon, but have more of a hassle getting to the airport on Friday morning.
I'd appreciate any tips or suggestions.
