Long Description:
Even though the doorway has the title Hotel d'Artistes above it...it seems that is either an old or misleading sign. No website comes up for any such hotel in Long Beach...and the building seems to be operating as retail space. But the doorway is impressive with colorful tilework surrounding it. The tilework is also reflected in the similarly tiled artwork directly in front of the entrance - Toy Car Pile Up (WMBK5K). Similar tile and mosaic pieces are spread out on this and other buildings on this block.

Functional door?: Yes
