Amsterdam/Amersfoort---Taxi? Car service? Rent a car?

In July I will be stopping in the Netherland during travels in Europe. When I arrive at Schophol, I need to transfer to the Hilton Royal Parc Soestduinen, a country resort near Amersfoort. Three days later, I need to get from there to an address in the central canal region of Amsterdam. Aside from these transfers, I really don’t need a car.

Easiest would be taxis, but—
Would most taxis at the airport go as far as the Amersfoort area?
Would it be by meter, or negotiation?
Any estimate of cost?

If that’s not practical, it is easy to find car/driver service. I used these often in Asia and in the UK, but not sure they’re as common in NL.

Thanks for any comments or suggestions.

A taxi in NL will go as far as you wish. This trip is not so long.
A car with a driver has to be registered as a taxi so it will have blue registration plates as a taxi. The website for the hotel says a taxi will coast 145€. Can you get cheaper?
