I own a hotel and Im using a Linksys router to provide internet access to my guest. It is a small hotel, two floors and 9 rooms. Only the rooms right above the router get a wireless signal. Can you reccommend a good solution to extend my coverage to the other rooms. Thanks

Try using Access points/bridges.

Use the Linksys access-point to make your signal go further:
WAP54G

From Linksys website:
"You can also use the Wireless-G Access Point as a kind of "cable-less cable" to connect remote areas together. Maybe Shipping is all the way across the warehouse from Receiving. Or maybe you want to set up a home office in your detached garage. With one Wireless-G Access Point in the garage and another one in the house, you're connected at 54Mbps – with no cable to run."

You need a wireless range extender.  Since you mentioned Linksys, use the following device.

These range extender have a limit, putting an access point will cover more range.

the access points can also hook into a wired network. so you can run a wire down past where the other wireless doesnt reach, and startup a signal there
