They will try to sell you an organized trip with their car + driver, beware of the scam!!! they will insist telling you that India is very dangerous for lonely travellers. DON'T LET THEM FOOL YOU!!!, India is safe and you can use the train as a safe and confortable mean of transport.
They take advantage of the situation because usually many people start their trip from Delhi due to the International airport, hence people usually don't know how is travelling in India.
Another advice: go to the official tourism agency.
Finally my opinion about the hotel: The only one with Continental-like breakfast (not bad), the rooms are quite OK but in my humble opinion the price is extremely high for their quality.
By the way: the slums are nearby.
