I'm pretty sure that's the hotel doing the blocking, USS isn't the type 
to enforce anything specific like that that I've found as they're a 
wholesaler and blocking that stuff tends to annoy those who are 
whiteboxing their product.

They definitely don't do anything like that on their transit links.
