Donald Trump talks to reporters prior to a news conference in Las Vegas, Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012.

The federal government announced this week that Donald Trump will be converting the Old Post Office Pavilion on Pennsylvania Avenue into a 250-room luxury hotel.

The General Services Administration assures the public the Trump Organization will preserve the building's historic features. The hotel will include restaurants, a spa and conference facilities.

The historic building was completed in 1899 to house the postal service's headquarters and the city's post office. It features a 315-foot clock tower, the second-tallest structure in the nation's capital, after the Washington Monument.
