It will arrive at Lianhuashan Port. Take bus no.Pan148 to Yongwang Mengyue Cheng Bus Stop. Then take metro line 3 to West Tiyu Road, Exit D. Take bus no.B12 to Guangzhou Avenue Middle Bus Stop.
After arriving, walk north around 50 mins to find your hotel.

As I know, the online booking page only has Chinese version. Thus you can ask help for the hotel staff. Or you should get to the ferry terminal earlier in the morning.
