overnight layover in Shanghai Pudong airport

I will be having a 15 hour layover in Shanghai Pudong airport arriving to the airport at 6 pm . I was planning to stay at a hotel near the bund to check it out. If my connecting flight departs at 9 am the following morning will have time to make it to the airport on time? Also I am going around mid November so I hope it does not take long to get through tsa to get to the boarding gate for my flight

You can make it back to the airport in time if you leave early enough in the morning.

You will be able to make it to downtown by 8pm using public transportation. You may disregard using taxis on Friday night and Saturday night as the traffic remains really bad on all bridges and tunnels till 9pm or so.

Next morning, make sure to check out by 6am. It's easy and relatively fast to make it to the airport in less than one hour with a cab.
