    We don't pluralise luggage, and "those" doesn't really fit.

    In order to drop off our heavy luggage, we decided to check into our hotel before going shopping.

    Also note that you do not need to put a space before a comma.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
