Would you choose Maple or Red Oak Cabinets?

I am having some cabinets that I plan to have stained in my house (kitchen island, master bathroom vanity, & guest bathroom vanity). In my cabinet quote, it stated that I could choose between red oak or maple woods for the price given on the stain grade cabinets (other wood species would be more costly and up the quote). If you had the choice between these 2 wood species, which would you pick & why? Also, in case you have a stain you love for either wood species, I'd be interested in knowing it. I'm still looking at photos online to get a feel for what color tone I prefer.

Red Oak
