Ready for a SuperHero Summer? Capes Included”

Does your family wish for super skills?

Would you like to go to Superhero Academy?

I grew up watching Six Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman. I always wanted special powers. If only I had Wonder Woman’s lasso of truth or Superman’s cape to fly away from danger, my life would have been so different.

This summer I stayed at Fairmont Scottsdale Princess and received a cape! I wore it on my hike two miles nearly straight up at McDowell Sonoran Conservancy to Tom’s Thumb and also while kayaking at Lower Salt River. If you want to feel smarter than any superhero go to and find a luxury hotel room for 50 to 70% off! You will need to plan your day to beat the heat by doing your active adventures early in the morning and enjoying the phenomenal spa and many pools in the afternoon.

If your little superheros want their own capes, take a summer journey and enjoy these activities only for kids:

Kids’ Check-In: From Sidekick to Superhero

Calling all superheroes, caped crusaders and masked marvels! Children will transform from sidekick to superhero in a flash with a special cape and mask they all receive upon check-in. Their mission: to decode the Superhero secret message assigned upon arrival. Capture the moment in a Superman-inspired phone booth photo booth, and say hello to our furry and friendly cape-wearing Canine Ambassadors.
