8 hour layover at GRU is it worth leaving airport and doing anything.

Hi folks I should have posted earlier but here goes:

We fly into GRU on AA arriving at about 945am 11/22 and out that same evening on SAA to CPT via JNB.
a) Is it worth leaving the airport for such a short period or should I plan to just hang out ( mostly in the Admirals club) I understand the city is a bit of a drive and might be subject to traffic delays.

b) Also is there somewhere to leave our luggage ( I presume SAA wont check it 7-8 hours in advance)

c) Is there a recommended airport hotel that perhaps we can get a day rate
catch a nap and or perhaps hang out and have a meal.

Would appreciate any help/advice/recommendations.

We do have a Brazilian visa so there would no problems clearing the authorities.
