I exclusively use distilled water purchased from the grocery store for the humidifier at home since starting CAPP from the start about 4 months ago.
I will be traveling for work next week arriving later in the evening(pretty much right from the airport to the hotel.) I do not know if I will have a chance to purchase distilled water.
I do not like the idea of using tap water from the hotel and am not sure if using regular bottled drinking water is a acceptable or not. Is it OK to use bottled water or should I just forgo the humidifier for a few days?

I too used distilled water. I find the tanks last a long time with distilled.
Some people use tap.
Water bottled for drinking contains some additives that improve the flavor. In my opinion, it's OK to use such water.
The water tank is a replaceable item; and paid for by most insurance on a regular schedule.
I keep a spare just in case.
