Just three years after it opened, the owners of the Hampton by Hilton London Waterloo hotel in Waterloo Road want to add an eight-storey extension.
If this extension is approved, Waterloo Road will have 718 hotel rooms: 237 at the expanded Hampton by Hilton London Waterloo, 177 at the H10 London Waterloo, 279 at the Travelodge London Waterloo and 25 at The Wellington.
The wider Bishop's ward area already has more hotel rooms than permanent residents who turned out to vote at the last election.
