Hi there, am I right in thinking that you are talking about the Hilton at Chilworth, Southampton? If so, it is a perfectly good hotel with all the usual business hotel facilities, gym, restaurant, bar, front desk services etc.
The biggest draw back is the location, it is about 4 miles outside of Southampton, with no easy transport in & out, so it's going to be taxi cabs.
For a similar level of hotel, you may want to check out the De Vere Grand Harbour Hotel which is within strolling distance of the city, and if you can get a room overlooking the waterfront you can watch the ships come & go.
I've also heard good reports about a fairly new hotel in Southampton called the Jurys Inn, it's not in such a nice location as the Grand, but is still within easy walking of the main city attractions.

Hope this gives you some ideas, have a great time,

Alan & Katrina
