Re: Newbie. Having trouble picking a box
Email both with some questions you're curious about. Majority will offer a "free intro session". Go along to one of these at both, as well as observe a WOD session at both.
No one can really answer the question for you because everyone has different tastes. Some people prefer smaller or bigger class sizes, some have the budget to pay more, or someone might expect help qualifying for the games whereas the next person doesn't care about them.
Experience the atmosphere and attitude of trainers at both, then use that to compare price and distance from home. Also, look at the scheduling to ensure you can make the class times of either.
