No direct bus, you can take bus No. 22 and get off at the 5th stop then change to bus No. 125 and get off the hotel. If you take taxi, that would be 30min and may need around CNY40. I don't know if there is some places to visit near the station, but you may consider the Ice and Snow World.

Do you mean the main station or this west station? The hotel is about 2km away from the main station. You may take bus No. 85 and then walk about 700m to reach there. Or maybe you can take a taxi.
