Given that getting into the Dark Room is mostly a voluntary decision and there's much less items than in The Chest, is there any practical reason why one would choose going into the Dark Room?

    Achievements and item unlocks. And it's only four items less. Which can possibly be guppy items – Arperum Sep 3 '16 at 13:28
  • Not four, you also lose all the items from the chests. – d33tah Sep 3 '16 at 14:14
  • Well, you can still find items in red chests when completing a room in Dark Room, iirc. – pinckerman Sep 3 '16 at 14:43
  • Wait? Since when doesn't the dark room give chest with items like in the chest? I haven't played in a while, but the dark room had the same chest room rewards as the chest – Arperum Sep 4 '16 at 8:43

Aside from being required to unlock items for characters/get achievements, the item pool of the chest is that of the sacrifice rooms, since all chests are red chests.

By choosing the Dark Room, you could potentially collect 3 Guppy items, become Guppy, and have an OP finish to your run.

Once you've unlocked everything, though, it's mostly a matter of preference. Personally I choose the Dark Room if I'm not overly powerful that particular run, because I'm not very good at the bullethell fight with Blue Baby (or Isaac).
