From Amsterdam city center, drive southwest, take the A10 Amsterdam ring road, join the A4 road towards Schiphol, turn left onto E19, and then go for about 16km, turning into AMS Schiphol International Airport.
There are restaurants, shops, and Internet access. One of the delicacies I buy for a friend is goose liver in cans.
Shower service is available in Hotel Mercure, as well as on the first floor of Lounge 3 in the 24-hour security area for ticketed passengers. Cost is 12.50€. The number for the Hotel Mercure is +31 (0)20 604 1339 or fax at +31 (0)20 653 0438.

Public transit buses run 15 to 20 minutes to Amsterdam’s center. Taxis are available after the Arrivals Hall, and the ride takes about 15 minutes.
