This is the back of the Hotel Amsterdam/Saloon Hotel connected to the famous downtown gay bar/club. It's a bit hard to read, and looks like perhaps it's been painted over a few times. My guess is that it once said Tourist Hotel, but the first world also clearly ended with a "y" at one point too. N. 9th St. and Hawthorne Ave.
