picture of our hotel layout with the current Access points, but I need to
completely upgrade the wireless network to provide our guest, secure,
reliable and good signals to access internet wireless.
Currently my setup is ISP Modem --->Nomadix Hotspot Gateway -----> 24
port switch -----> two Access Points
Please have a look at our hotel layout which is 3 story building with only one row of rooms 10 on each floors, please suggest me which Access point I need to buy and where will be ideal location for the new Access Point to provide good strong signals to each room. Give me suggestion on both the outdoor AP set up as well as indoor AP set up.
some of the AP I have researched are as below, but your suggestion are very important as I am new and don't have field experience.

Well engineered projects are indistinguishable from crazy ideas.
Speed, distance, reliability, cost...Pick three.

WHT is right about getting a radio and testing. My suggestions are to pick your flavor AP, download a free scanner program (several to choose from online. I prefer inssider by metageek) then place the test AP at one end of your building and walk with a laptop or mobile device until you see a -75. Placing the AP on the 2nd floor and testing its "bleed" capabilities is suggested.
Move the AP to the spot where -75 occurs then test again. Plotting the placement on your drawing will tell you how many units you need to potentially invest in.
Submit that to the forum and you will get some more detailed info out of the geniuses that dwell here.
If you don't want to do any of what I outlined above, I am certain someone on the forum that lives nearby will happily do it for you. For an appropriate fee of coarse.

The picture of the Topaz Lake Autovon switch is just above us but we do not have line of sight, but it's impressive.

your check in, check out area...
You say you have 3 floors. Are they all visible from the check in, check out?
You may get away with pointing a NanoM2 from the top left corner of the check in/check out area to 106, middle of the second floor.
But as mentioned it would be better putting inside Unifi in and spacing them out and wiring them in.
