I know this post is a little old, but if the question still exists.... definatley go with wood. Wood is traditionally used in dining rooms. Also, if taken care of wood will last a lot longer than most tiling.

Done correctly, tile will last a 100 years, ever walk into a 90 year old brownstone here in N.Y. check out the mud walls and floors, not a loose tile anywhere.

Oh and, I like hardwood too in the dining room, not to say I haven't tiled many off them.:D

Check out Anderson Hardwoods.
They have nice classic looks.
