Reservation at West Side YMCA was directed to Hotels4 (not the action I wanted). When I finally connected with an agent who directed me to contact the YMCA directly, I did,Nicolette Kelley Watson 212.912.2625, said she would approve the refund after Hotels4 contacted her. $725 WSY refund and $200 from Trivago. Two weeks later I have not received confirmation from either company.
