I really feel sorry for the thousands of Asian tourists flying all the way from Tokyo, Seoul, etc. to visit this dilapidated rusting piece of steel. Last time I was there (this Spring), it was in a very bad state, the entire neighborhood was muddy and badly stinking of piss, and generally I though it was a terrible waste of time. If you go to Paris, don't go to the Eiffel tower, better go one more day to Louvre, trust me.

I was at the Eiffel tower in April 2014 while they were doing reno work on the lower half. It was business as usual then, long line ups to go up to the top but so worth it on a beautiful sunny day. They had the light show every hour before midnight and it was pretty cool to see. Back then Paris was still fairly safe and clean minus the piles of dog crap here and there on the sidewalks. Today, I wouldn't go there. Sadly, what you see in the news and on Youtube is really the sad state that Paris has become.
