In 1839–1842 the local press mentions a hotel and restaurant, called At the White Swan (Zum weißen Schwan). The origin of the title is related to the White Swan (Weißen Schwan) goods warehouse, standing on the other side of Žvejų Street.
In 1852 the owner of the White Swan warehouse was a famous German merchant, millionaire and archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann, who gained world fame in 1868 as a person, who discovered and researched the legendary Troy and Mycenae.
The wooden building of the hotel, built in 1845, was destroyed by the fire of 1854. A new brick building with a corner stone, featuring the owner's name (C. E. Kühn) and the year (1855) was built circa 1855. The hotel belonged to C. F. Burwerth and in 1855 it was purchased by C. E. Kühn.
In 1890 it has undergone major renovations and was purchased by R. Gudat. The title of the hotel changed as well - it became Hotel de Russie (The Russian Hotel).
After the World War I the hotel was renamed into Baltischer Hof (The Baltic Palace).
In 1920 the hotel was purchased by Adolf Meyer, renting the Kurhaus in Smiltynė. After his death, the hotel was taken over by his wife Otto Frick Meyer, who managed the hotel in 1925–1945. At that time the hotel had 40 rooms, a central heating and a car parking lot with a gas station.
In 1990 the old building of the hotel was reconstructed. Although it has lost its authenticity, the façade didn't change much throughout its time. The cornerstone, dating back to 1855, remained as well.
In 2011 the building has undergone its last renovations and is currently known as the National Hotel.
