Yes, there are many rides a day running between the two stations. You can take one of them according to your arrival time at south station. In fact, you can also take subway to the hotel. From South Station, you can take subway line 1 to Huanchengnanlu, the hotel is about 600m to the exit B only. This is a good option too if you did not get suitable rail ticket.
