Like many other top Beijing hotels, the Swiss Hotel is already fully booked for next year's Beijing Olympic Games.
But communications manger Yu Jie says there is still a lot of work to be done to ensure everything is ready for the big event.
"The hotel is preparing in two ways," says the 37-year-old. "We want the hotel to look nice and the service to be excellent."
Ms Yu is not sure if she will get time to see the Olympics herself.
