Ziploc Space Bags are great for bulky items as you can hook them up to a vacuum cleaner to suck all of the air out. It can leave you a ton of extra space in your bag. However, make sure to call the hotel to see if you can borrow a vacuum from housekeeping before your flight home (spacebag.com; from $20 for nine).

Porta-Pockets make it easy to move clothes from your suitcase to your hotel drawers. Inner pouches in the bag make finding accessories and undergarments easy (containerstore.com; $38 for a set of three; shown).
