Roseville, CA (August 12, 2022) – DCA Partners Family Office (“DCA”), a specialized real estate investment group, is in the process of acquiring Hotel Melby, located in Melbourne, Florida. This constitutes DCA’s fourteenth investment in 2022 on behalf of Nella Invest, LLC, a family business based in Auburn, California.

The hotel, which opened in 2020, features 11 floors, 156 guest rooms, a coffee shop, an indoor-outdoor restaurant/meeting venue, and rooftop bar. Hotel Melby will retain its original name.

In acquiring Hotel Melby, DCA partnered with Halo Hospitality and Evolution Hospitality, who will oversee the future operation of the property, including several initiatives to enhance guest experience.

“We were attracted to Hotel Melby in part due to its outstanding reputation,” said Brian Larson, Special Advisor to DCA. “And the location couldn’t be better—the property sits in the vibrant downtown district, in the heart of Melbourne. We look forward to partnering and growing our relationship with the wonderful Melbourne community.”
