Value is the name of the game at the 143-room Best Western Americania, where rooms start at $129. But what flourishes abound. Some, such as classic American board games in each room, are subtle. Others–including the neon furniture dotting the outdoor courtyard–are not. The flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations, and high-speed Internet access are among the modern conveniences, as is the proximity to Market Street and BART.
