Holy getaway, Batman!

Don your cape and take flight toward the towering skyscrapers and glittering lights of the most magical metropolis of all with a weekend stay at midtown Manhattan's The Gotham Hotel.

It will not just be evil villains you will be escaping from at the extraordinary space on 46th between Madison and 5th. Just blocks from the city's best dining, shopping and museums, you'll take a break from your humdrum everyday identity and embrace your own inner power — no radioactive spider bite required.

Bring along your trusty sidekick and spend two consecutive nights — during Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in August or the first weekend in September — in one of the hotel's hero-sized king guest rooms.

Enjoy your own perch (read: balcony) to keep watch over the city, daily breakfast for two, wireless internet access, assorted pastries and a bottle of Prosecco waiting in your room, a glass of wine upon check-in and a place to stash the Batmobile, all for $622.

You can cosy up in your own Fortress of Solitude — just above the once-cherished Gotham Book Mart — with luxurious C.O. Bigelow bath amenities, 400-thread-count linens, in-room spa services and lush terrycloth bathrobes with which even your neon tights cannot compete. Trade in smouldering rubble and diabolical plots for a quieter weekend in one of the hotel's 66 spacious suites — with personalized extras like shaving kits and pedicure supplies.

Give in to your culinary kryptonite at Tenpenny, the stylish on-site eatery with intimate ambiance and American fare that has garnered the attention of The Village Voice, Zagat and The New York Times, the latter of which referred to Chef Chris Cipollone as "a vegetable shaman".

Leaping tall buildings in a single bound is impressive and all, but an adventure like this? Now that's what we call super.
