For current generation 11ac access points, 5E or 6 is perfectly fine. Definitely consider pulling two drops per AP as well.

My vote is for Cat6.  Cat6A is overkill IMO and very expensive.

My customer is using back old CAT5e and is working fine but if cost is not an issue use CAT6. CAT6A is much thicker and harder to bend.
