The Sheraton-Park Hotel was Senator Bob Munson's (Walter Pidgeon) home in the movie. In the 1960s, many senators roomed in hotels or apartments, and a number of them resided at the Sheraton-Park Hotel in 1961 when the movie was filmed.

Charles Laughton Resting on the White House South Lawn
“I was drawing a different scene, and Laughton ambled over and plumped down on the grass. He was looking toward the south side of the White House, and I said, I have to catch that. I got the White House in the background and the people lined up watching the filming. This is one of my all time favorites.” –Lily Spandorf
