In this article, the merits and demerits of Jiudian Yingyu Shouce (The Wordbook of Hotel English), a newly published corpus-based wordbook on hotel English, is reviewed. It has three distinctive features, including relying on a specially constructed corpus, HotelCOPE, to select headwords and provide some unique lexicographical information, offering some useful appendixes to enhance its usefulness, and seamlessly integrating itself with modern technology for better learning efficiency in the age of mobile learning. Meanwhile, it has also left room for further improvement in the future, including the translation of some headwords. Overall, it makes a valuable addition to the repertoire of references to those learning hotel English in China.
