I am looking to set up a wireless mesh network for a hotel client
Any thought out there as the best options. I was hoping Linksys had a solution but with out open source firmware that does appear to be an option.

I see D-Link has an option but i can find the access point they are refering to

Cisco has some awesome equipment for wireless mesh, but obviously costs a lot more then dlink or linksys. http://www.cisco.com/en/US/netsol/ns621/networking_solutions_package.html
This is typically used outdoors.

You have to look at exactly what you want to cover. You can go with lightweight access points which can all be wired to the network and do handoffs as people roam around the building via the wireless lan controller. or netgear has the wg302 and wg102 models which will allow you to create a point to multipoint bridges (5 max)

Mesh is used most for carrier outdoors. If you doing indoor coverage i would suggest point to multipoint links
