1 2 or 5. Not exactly from Damrak but from CS or the back of the Royal Place. If you are flying in you are better to take bus 197 from Schiphol straight to Leidseplein.

From Dam Sq on the Damrak side take #4 or #9 to Rembrandtplein. For trams to Leidseplein you need the 'backside' of the Dam, in front of Magna Plaza shopping center on the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal (parallel to Damrak) - trams #5, #1 or #2.

Three people with a single journey 1-hour pass will cost €2.80 x 3 = €8.40. A taxi to one or the other square will not be much more and to Rembrandtplein perhaps less, although a single taxi journey delivering you in parts to both squares will be more (I don't know what the minimum prices are or the exact taxi pricing scheme at the moment but another contributor will surely know that).

If you will be tramming it around more during your stay you may want one of the daily or multiple day tram/bus tickets (see en.gvb.nl/ovinmamsterdam/Pages/bestdeal.aspx )

There are two issues here:

How to get to your hotel (where is your hotel?)

and

How to get around town.

It's really an easy walk to both squares, and the route is nice and lively. Plenty of sights, bars, coffeeshops in between.
