The Golden Palace is an Americanmarker sitcom that originally aired on CBS during the 1992-1993 season. The show was a spin-off of the sitcom The Golden Girls.


The series featured three of the four characters from The Golden Girls moving out of their original home, and operating an upscale hotel called The Golden Palace. The show was not as popular as its predecessor, perhaps due to the absence of Beatrice Arthur as a regular cast member as well as a move to the Friday night death slot. Arthur did make two guest appearances, as did others from the original show. Twenty-four episodes of the series are known to have been taped.


  • Betty White as Rose Nylund, a jack-of-all-trades in the hotel. This series sees Rose being of a notably stronger will than her previous incarnation (as Dorothy Zbornak noted in her guest appearance, "When did she become the strong one?").
  • Rue McClanahan as Blanche Devereaux, who served as the main operator of the hotel. Her character remains virtually unchanged from her previous series. However, she is slightly more helpful than in Girls.
  • Estelle Getty as Sophia Petrillo, the hotel's co-chef. In this series, her character is beginning to show signs of senility, and is more kind and gentle than in the parent series.
  • Don Cheadle as Roland Wilson, the hotel's manager
  • Cheech Marin as Chuy Castillos, the chef alongside Sophia.
  • Billy L. Sullivan as Oliver Webb, Roland's foster child for episodes 1-6, 11, and 14.
