A *great* alternative, IMHO -
If you are open to tile, which it sounds like you are, do you know they now manufacture tiles that look just like hardwood? There are several versions out now, and they all look great (at least to me).
I would DEFINITELY not do laminate. As for the engineered wood, I'm not a huge fan, although it is a better choice than laminate. I know this is a "quirk" of me (and I have many), but I could never get past the way it sounds when you walk on it. Sounds....hollow or something. I don't know why that bothers me so much, but it does.
I would look into the tile that looks like wood. Have seen several rooms done in this recently, and one entire house. It really does look amazing, and you then have the durability of tile, but with the appearance you are seeking.
