The obvious answer is:  Don't even try to do that!!!!

You were subverting the hotel's security policy by using a covert
channel.  Bad Andrew!  :-)

Their implementation was a bit, well, restrictive and perhaps not so
well thought out, but perhaps it shouldn't really have mattered.

Presumably the available protocols would all have given you different
kinds of responses to names that really didn't exist out in the real
word (eg. mail bouces, http proxy error pages, etc.).
