I made sure to find some models that can effectively humidify large rooms, as well as smaller ones that are more portable, especially since office buildings and hotel rooms are often heavily air-conditioned, which can affect sinus troubles. There's also a mix of evaporative humidifiers (which don't over-humidify rooms or leave white mineral deposits) and ultrasonic models (which provide continuous humidification). All of these products need to be cleaned regularly to prevent buildup of mold and bacteria, so please keep maintenance in mind when making your choice.
