The Hotel Plaza San Francisco is not bad, and right downtown.

To get to the cruise port, take a taxi to the bus station (about $10),
then take a bus to Valparaiso ($5), then a taxi to the cruise port
($5-10). Pullman and Turbus both have buses leaving every 15 minutes.
The journey takes about 90 minutes. I like Santiago, but you might
find Valparaiso a more interesting place to stay.


Or check out cruisecritic.com for descriptions of private transfers
(usually via the wineries) for $150 or so.

The Sheraton is nice and also on the on/off bus line for city tours. You can take the shuttle there from SCL airport for less than $18 and has great restaurants,pool and outside area along with amenities in the room.
