I just spent a week at the Cosmopolitan as part of a mixed business & pleasure trip to Hong Kong.
My room was pretty small, but I didn't spend much time there, so no big deal. It offered everything I needed. The only negative was the hardest and most rigid mattress that I have ever encountered! I kept meaning to ask if the could put some sort of downy cover on the bed, but never got around to it.
The restaurant does a nice breakfast, with a range of Western & Eastern options. My only quibble was the fact that the price was one size fits all, meaning that my light continental breakfast cost the same as someone grabbing a full range of cooked food from the bain-maries. I also had dinner there twice & enjoyed both meals. As far as I could tell, the dinner offerings were 100% Eastern, although that was fine with me.
In the lobby there is a small bar, which did a great trade during the rugby and also made a decent coffee.
I found the staff to be obliging and helpful at all times, although I didn't have many interactions with them.
The location was quite good. I noticed signs pointing to the MTR but I mainly used taxis (so cheap in HK) and walking to get around. The walk to the Sevens stadium took around 20+ minutes and around 30 minutes to walk into Central. The shops, bars & restaurants of Wan Chai & Causeway Bay are only 10-15 minutes by foot.
It was obviously a popular venue for Sevens visitors and there were a lot of people in fancy dress drinking in the lobby each night - it wasn't difficult to make new friends!
All up I enjoyed my stay and would certainly recommend the Cosmopolitan
