Just recently in NYC, the hotel "internet" connection did intercept  
any UDP traffic to *:53, redirecting it to their resolver.  Which did  
not only serve their own A records for names that should have returned  
NXDOMAIN, but also returned "better" answers than you normally would  
get (requesting pages from www.weather.com delivered pages from www.accuweather.com 
).  Of course it even did that after I had paid and clicked through  
their walled garden site.
