I read with interest the story of the two hotels. However the Ritz Carlton on St Thomas,or Caneel Bay or Virgin Grande on St John have always met the standards set by the first hotel story.
As for the rest of them they basically all fall into some degree of the second story,In the U.S there are many bad hotels.
But Turnberry Isle in Aventura and the Ritz Carlton in Naples are all 5 star and would fit the first story.
Many other hotels in U S are like St.Thomas.
Don't always believe that because it is in the States it is automatically better.
