Drinking water and hotel bathrooms

  1. Simple answer to a simple question. In America (as in most first world countries), tap water supplied to residences and hotels is safe to drink and need not be boiled or filtered. So go ahead and drink from the hotel bathroom.

  2. Many hotel rooms supply at least one complimentary bottle of filtered water in the room. So do check before you head to the bathroom.

  3. Almost all hotels have an icemaker, usually one on each floor. You can get ice for your drinking water from the icemaker.
