      Selected to provide service and support to all 80 corporate-owned
                    Hyatt Place hotels by the end of 2007

               Provides Update on Delayed Filing of Financials

    CALGARY, March 14 /CNW/ - Guest-Tek Interactive Entertainment Ltd.,
("Guest-Tek") (TSX: GTK), a leader in providing broadband technology solutions
to the global hospitality industry, today announced it has completed an
agreement (the "Agreement") to provide OneView Internet service and support as
the brand standard to all corporate owned Hyatt Place(TM) hotels. Guest-Tek
began deploying its solution to Hyatt Place sites last week and anticipates
completing the entire rollout by the end of the calendar year.
    Hyatt Place was specially designed to help guests remain more relaxed,
productive and fulfilled while traveling. To help achieve this, Hyatt Place
offers complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel. Guests can choose to
take advantage of this in their spacious guestroom, stretching out on the
signature Hyatt Grand Bed(TM) or on the Cozy Corner, an eight-foot sectional
sofa-sleeper. Guests can also choose to utilize Wi-Fi access in the Gallery,
an innovative welcoming area featuring contemporary design and a comfortable,
coffeehouse vibe. Here guests can work on their laptop in a variety of seating
areas while enjoying a freshly prepared entrée, a Starbucks(R) specialty
coffee or glass of premium wine or beer. "Technology has become a mandatory
part of the travel experience. Our guests are living a 24/7 lifestyle with no
separation between their personal and professional time, so it's critical to
provide them with the technology that allows them to continue that lifestyle
while traveling," stated Jim Abrahamson, senior vice president, Hyatt
Corporation. "Guest-Tek was selected as our standard solution because of their

proud to be an integral part of the technologically advanced Hyatt Place

statements for the period ended December 31, 2006 (the "Financial
Statements"), it will not be filing the Financial Statements on March 15, 2007
as originally contemplated. The Financial Statements are now expected to be
