Your hotel may be willing to freeze your milk as well. Just bring enough storage bags and something to put them in so they are discreet in the freezer and bring something to label the bag with your name, cell number and room number. Also, if you can bring a cooler, you might be able to fill it with ice so it can make the trip home as baggage. The cold temps in the cargo hold of the plane would be perfect. Hopefully the airlines won't charge you for checked baggage. Call the airline and check on their policy. Otherwise, perhaps you can get a soft-sided cooler that you can carry on the plane and bring some large gallon size zip loc bags to fill with ice and BM bags into (in case they leak) for the trip home.

One last tip, make sure to get as much air out of the storage bags as you can when you seal them up (I use one of those potato chip clips to help push the air out before I seal it) because if you check the bags with your luggage, the higher altitude will cause the bags to expand and your milk could leak out.
