Trump is planning his visit to Britain as part of a wider tour.
When diplomats are visiting as part of a state visit, they typically stay at Buckingham Palace.
US President Donald Trump will visit the United Kingdom in 2018 but his visit has been downgraded to a "working visit" which means he will not be a guest of the Queen, media reports said on Wednesday.
But a spokesperson for his office said he would not object to a working visit.
A foreign office spokesperson said, "Our position on the state visit has not changed-an offer has been extended and President Trump has accepted".
It was immediately criticised as a breach of convention, as state visits are usually reserved for a president's second term.More news: Air pollution high at U17 World Cup in India
MPs from across the political aisle criticised the invitation at the time and John Bercow, the Commons Speaker, announced he would oppose an address to Parliament.
London mayor Sadiq Khan had previously raised concerns about Trump's state visit. "The state visit should never have been offered, and with reports that Trump doesn't want to come if he will face protests, it may well never happen".
There was also a public backlash, with nearly two million people signing a petition saying the USA president's "well documented misogyny and vulgarity" disqualified him from an audience with the Queen.
It remains uncertain if the tour would include a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II, which would have been at the heart of the pomp and show that accompanies a state visit traditionally hosted by the British monarch.
A state visit for the U.S. president is usually an honour for their second term.
Jeremy Shapiro claimed Trump was "exploiting" Britain's romantic view of the special relationship to get a post-Brexit trading deal that benefited America.
