The Beacon Hotel, located in the heart of the action during Super Bowl week in Miami’s South Beach, has partnered with Player Press, LLC, a cutting-edge sports media company, to create a media center that has drawn interest from professional athletes and fans alike during the run-up to the Super Bowl at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium on Sunday.
The Beacon, located at 720 Ocean Drive in South Beach, across the street from the pulsating Super Bowl Festival and beach concert arena, plays host to the Player Press Media Center. Professional athletes, particularly NFL players who have flooded the area in the week that spans the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl in South Florida, are expected to continue stop by the Beacon to give video interviews at the media center and hobnob with fans and teammates.

More NFL athletes are expected to visit this South Beach Hotel during the remainder of the week.
