OK - we have left luggage in large train stations but all bags are subject to security inspections. They have to go through a TSA body scan ;)

Having access to Google Maps... there's a Starbucks (and Panera) basically next door. Granted the area isn't all that walkable and "next door" is still kind of far without a car.

E-mail is pretty crucial to me, and some MobileMe users couldn't access their mail for days.
