As others have suggested, there are differences that appeal to different priorities. If frame speed is the main consideration, there is a minor difference in favor of the D300, but that assumes the lower quality 12 bit compressed file. At 14 bit, which gives more flexibility in post processing, the D7100 is considerably faster.
In all image quality parameters, the D7100 is better.
The controls are different, with the D7100 having a few less external buttons but more in line with newer higher end cameras from Nikon, such as the AF mode selection style is the same as D4, D800 and D600.
What are you shooting with DX and with the D3s? What are your priorities and eventual display method? Small files for the web won't make much difference, shoot in lower light, need post processing flexibility, printing high res or large will be dramatically better with the D7100.
