BTW: that Julliet is the one the Saratoga Foundation has in Providence, RI. It's worth visiting it!

But by the time of the 1972 incident the grooves do appear to be present, suggesting they were indeed a feature of some Hotel IIs only.

So far what we have is:

-During the 1961 accident the grooves cannot be seen in the available photos.
-During the 1972 accident there is evidence the grooves were present.

If so, the model represents a later version of the K-19.

Yesterday I've found this at deepstorm.ru.
The first phot shows a Hotel, It has the grooves and the article says it's the K-19:
