Try First Gear Onyx Expandables.

I have these on my bike. Fit under the seat and have handles so you can carry them to the hotel. Have support brackets for them. Pic with them on my custom. They expand and hold quite a bit. Includes rain covers. They are quite durable and have had them for over two years. I secure them with airport luggage locks through the zipper pulls.
