HOUSTON -- Houston will host the NBA's All-Star weekend in 2013.

Tere Perry, public relations manager at the Hilton Americas hotel, confirmed that the hotel has been informed that the All-Star Game and the events surrounding it are coming to Houston in February 2013. The hotel is across the street from the Toyota Center, the home of the Rockets, where the game was played in 2006.

KRIV-TV first reported that the city had landed the game. Houston also hosted the 1989 All-Star Game at the Astrodome.

Neither the Rockets nor the NBA would comment on the report.
