The last subway should be at 11:199pm from Nanjing South Station to Fuqiao which is the closest station to your hotel. You can exit from gate No. 2 and walk around 200m to the hotel.

Well, I suppose you need to choose a train after 1:30pm as you need about 1 hour to exit the airport and it takes about 30min on the way by Airport Express line to reach the railway station. You also need at least 1.5 hours for ticket collection of the rail service. So you would need a trip after 1:30pm. If transfer in Guangzhou, you can consider the G6542.
