Best option to soften a hard bed? Memory foam? Feather top? Giant marshmallows?

I purchased a Westin Heavenly Bed after trying it in a hotel and a department store, and upon receiving it discovered that it is harder then we thought... and not returnable. I am waking up with sore hips and a sore back.
I'm currently trying out a 2" memory foam topper (2.5 pound density) and it helps a little, but not 100%. I'm still tossing and turning during the night and waking up uncomfortable, although my hips don't hurt. I also think it made me warm while sleeping (only tried 2 nights so far).
Any suggestions on other options? Is there such a thing as a foam topper that is not memory foam?
Bed Bath and Beyond (where I bought this topper) has thicker foam, but they're pricey... this one was $200, 3" is $300 and 5" is $500.
Any suggestions? I should mention that I am overweight, so that certainly contributes to the problem, but in some hotel beds, I sleep like a rock.
