The history of the hotel goes back to the XIX century. The building of the hotel "Metropolis" testifies about its glorious past. Designed by the great province engineer/architect Nikolajus Andrejevas, the hotel was built in 1899. The first floor hosted 27 rooms on the first floor. The ground floor had a hotel restaurant along with a few shops. Kitchen with storage area and a wine cellar were constructed in the basement. Hotel "Metropolis" and its restaurant, along with its Italian live orchestra received the highest evaluation and were praised by its customers. It was considered the best and highest class hotel and the restaurant in the city at the time. Later on in 1922 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs obtained the building and turned it into stock company "Lietuvos Viešbutis" subsequently renaming the hotel to “Lietuvos Viesbutis”. A new three-story was added from the S.Daukanto Street under the supervision of the company. The building was designed by a famous architect Vladimiras Dubeneckas. The architect transferred all the ideas and features of "Lithuanian neo baroque" style into the building, which is expressed and visible until this day.
