    Hilton is named after former ISU president James H. Hilton. It has nothing to do with Hilton Hotels.

    It was a random question that I had to answer to search something. I thought the question was asking about hotels next to Hilton.

    Yeah, it was kind of a oddly worded question. I wasn't sure if I was answering what you were asking.
