After the recent news of delays to the Harmon Hotel & Spa, it's got to be a good sign that the ARIA Resort & Casino and Vdara Hotel are now taking reservations. Vdara, the non-casino hotel, is scheduled to open Oct. 1 and has nightly rates from $159-$2,000, according to a Las Vegas Sun story. ARIA's rates go from $179 to $799. The majority of the nearly $9-billion-project is slated to open in December.
In early January, the condo component to the Harmon Hotel was scrapped and the hotel's opening was pushed back until 2010.
