A return ticket will cost you only 497 USD but the supply of tickets are limited so you need to be fast as it is only valid for travel between 8th and 24th February and needs to be booked at least 8 days in advance.

Turkish Airlines provides a free transit hotel stay in Istanbul for layovers greater than 10 hours according to their website so it shouldnt be any problem or extra cost involved.
