It looks like you are staying at the Royal Hotel. The back rooms overlook the railyards.
I have stayed there a few times, because it is convenient to Cornavin. It is a short walk from the main station (Cornavin), about 300 meters. It is on the main street, so that you exit the front exit of the station, turn left, and walk along a level sidewalk.
I have done that walk with luggage, and it is not too hard.
If your luggage has wheels, and you do not have many suitcases or a lot of weight, it may actually be simpler to walk there than to ride a bus or tram. Getting luggage on and of a tram or bus is often made easy by "low-floor" trams, but I don't know if all trams and buses in Geneva have those yet. So, that is why I sometimes walk with luggage for a short distance.
On the other hand, this map shows a bus stop almost in front of the hotel.
Route 15, as Arno noted.
Stepping back a moment, you will take the train to Geneva. You will arrive at the main station, listed as Geneva. The French name of that station is Gare Cornavin. When you leave main station Cornavin by the front exit, the bus stops and tram stops are immediately in front of you. By doing that, you have walked from Cornavin rail station of Geneva to "Geneva,Cornavin" which is the name of the bus/tram station. The bus/tram goes to "Geneva, Mole" which is the name of the bus/tram stop in front of the Royal.
(Please forgive my inability to put the proper accents on the French words.)
Hope that helps.
It is confusing.
