On the rear bumper, driver's side is a small square insert. Use a small plastic pry tool (or dime if you aren't worried about possibly scratching the paint) to pop it out. Insert your key, turn it and lift the rear deck lid. It's best to have someone turn the key while you do the lifting since you'll be fighting the hydraulics, and it takes a lot of effort.

You might want to consider buying a Battery Tender to avoid this in the future. Depending on how long your battery has been depleted, it may have started sulphating which is the kiss of death. A Battery Tender will prevent this.
