Westminster City Council has approved plans to turn the War Office into a hotel.
The owners, the Hinduja Group and OHL Developments, will have to work to the condition that the historic character of the 1,000-room Edwardian building is not lost.
Additionally, the permission is dependent on the new hotel offering public access to the historically significant parts of the building for at least 10 days a year.
Plans for the development include the construction of a double height basement and three new floors. Eighty-eight new flats will also be created and a £10 million donation will be made to the affordable housing fund.
