Suggested correction: The McKittrick Hotel lobby and staircase scenes were all shot on location in San Francisco in the Henry F. Fortmann mansion. Proof can be seen in a book about the house in photos taken before it was demolished by Sacred Heart Prep School. The Psycho mansion interiors were all shot on a Hollywood soundstage.
