You will need to change the password on WiFI and if the AP is controlled by you or dedicated to you then you can change the password on that too. You may also need to review the devices connected to Switch as those could also lead to this issue

Thanks for the reply. However the AP are all wired to the switch. How do I go about accessing it to be able to change the passwords. They are 4 AP and all mounted in high corner of the building. I successfully changed the Wi-Fi password but the AP still connect using the password given to it which has now been comprised by neighbors.

Only the company that own/are responsible for providing the service should be making such changes and anyone that has permission to be using the network would be issued any new password/s as and when required, are you such a person, if yes, you should be dealing with them directly and not asking for help with what amounts to hacking into their system and potentially getting yourself into a lot of trouble with the law.

If the hotel owner is not able to give you access to change the password why can`t they put you in touch with their service provider who should be able to, offering free wifi to guests does come with this risk and adjusting the Wi-Fi signal strength so it only covers the business area concerned is a common way of limiting its abuse by freeloaders.

That is unknown territory for me I`m afraid but 20000 sq ft seems like a big ask and especially when you factor in that any router would need to be capable of running multiple devices, notebooks, smart phones, tablets etc, best reviews I could find here see NAVIGATE OUR TOP 10 WIFI ROUTERS info to the right of the page.
