Could they give you club access if a regular club room is available and still stick you in a broom closet? Maybe. But I don't think that is the intention. Rather, if there is a regular club room, you can get it, but if there is there only a premium club room, you get bupkiss (not regular room with club access).
One more reason few will aspire to "Explorist." Just not seeing any value there compared to Marriott/Hilton.
