Look up the Nikon D7000 or Pentax K5. Nothing against Canon, but the T3i won't be likely something you'll be able to "grow into." With the D7000, for an extra few hundred bucks, you get a better focus system, better image quality, weather sealing, larger viewfinder, almost double continuous shooting speed, two memory card slots, much better battery life and better low light performance - all of which are things you start to appreciate more as you start growing into a camera. I also think the t3i has only one command wheel (dial) which would be a total deal breaker for me (but double check that I could be wrong). If anything, get a used Canon 7D.

Oh ok, I didn't realize your budget had to include all the accessories, I know it all adds up. Okay what you're looking at would be a great choice. The D90 is your next best bet and the 18-105mm kit lens is fairly versatile and will produce great images. I use to own the D5100 and thought it was a good camera capable of producing outstanding images, however my friend's D90 and even D80 appealed to me more as it offers a better feature set. Go for the D90 with that lens and those accessories and you should be good.

I believe the lens will come with a hood, if it doesn't, don't worry about it you don't really need one.

It doesn't mention a Hood, so I would assume no and order one with the bundle. Hoods, help cut down on glare but they also add some lens protection.
