Maple or Hickory?

My wife and I have narrowed our choice of hardwood flooring down to either Character Grade Maple Pre-finished or Character Grade Hickory Pre-finished.

I'd like to hear others opinions of either of these choices and what your experience has been with either of these woods for your flooring. Thanks in advance.

Both are fairly hard woods and quite suitable for flooring. But they look quite different. Maple is light, with tight not-to-prominent grain, hickory is darker, with very obvious course grain. That is a personal choice, sorry.

Personal choice, as Bill said. I believe more people would choose the look of the maple over the hickory these days, but that's just my opinion.
