I downloaded SqlDeveloper from this url:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/sql-developer/downloads/index.html
I chose Windows 64-bit. My PC is Windows 7 64-bit.

I can connect to remote databases as expected using the SqlDeveloper IDE. But I cannot connect to the local database residing on the same PC on which I am running the SqlDeveloper.

On sqlplus:
c:\sqlplus /nolog

SQL*Plus: Release 11.2.0.1.0 Production on Thu Nov 21 00:24:31 2013

SQL> select name from v$database;

From a command prompt make sure ORCL is being listened for:
lsnrctl status

If you don't see ORCL, try manually registering it.  From a sqlplus prompt: alter system register;

Then check the listener again.
