Our bed is so bad we tend to roll together into the trough in the middle.

My wife and I stayed overnight at a hotel a few weekends ago and came to the realization that our bed is truly horrific.
Help us buy a new mattress! (details inside)

We've decided that we are now in the market for a completely new bed, starting from the bed frame up. We've never done any mattress/box spring shopping (we're still sleeping on my queen bed from my college years...eww) so we wanted to query the mighty green for as much personal experience and suggestions as possible.
Here's the information that we do know:
We want a king size bed.
We don't want a Tempur-pedic (too expensive, and I understand it can cause people to get overheated while they sleep and I am a naturally prone to overheating-type-person).
We would like a "grown-up" bed. No Ikea/do it yourself creations.
So, what should we get, where should we go, and what should we avoid/ make sure we get?
