You'll need to take the speed tram service called The RhoneExpress from the airport. The tram makes 3 stops on its way. Your best option is to get off at the 2nd and penultimate stop - Vaulx-en-Velin La Soie. That is also terminus stop of the metro A line. Then take the metro to the Hôtel de Ville stop in the centre of the city. Your hotel is around 10 minutes walking distance from there, you'll have to cross the bridge de la Feuillée. Or upon exiting the metro you can take C3 or S1 bus for two short stops - Gare Saint-Paul is terminus for both of them, you can use the same ticket you used to take the metro.

Having said all that, if there are 3 plus people in your group a taxi will probably be the best option. RhoneExpress is rather expensive - 15 euros per person if paid on the station plus a metro ticket. A taxi before 7 pm will cost around 55 euros.
