We're Going to the Mattresses

We're upgrading from an old Ikea queen-sized mattress to ... we don't know what. We know very little about proper mattresses. What should we look for in a mattress?

Are expensive mattresses really better than medium-cost ones? How much should we count on spending? Where do the returns diminish? Mattresses seem to be about $1000 at Sears. Is a $2000 mattress better? Should we go to a place that sells only mattresses? What should we ask them about?
How important is a box spring? How important is the bed frame?
Bonus points: we're in Montreal. Where should we go?
